Doplar vs X: specifically DRS6AX vs DRS6A-NXT

Postby msandrew » Thu Dec 21, 2017 9:55 am

Am trying to decide which of these two would be best now that an open array dopplar has been released. I will also have a DRS4NXT dome radar already. Is it best to have an X *and* a dopplar radar? or would I have more features by choosing the new DRS6A-NXT open array radar? Which would be preferred, or what are the trade-offs?

It's all a matter of perspective but if you have the NXT dome and plan to keep it; I would suggest the "X" series radar open array. You will end up with better long range and weather detection. You could use the NXT for Navigation and target tracking and the "X" for birds and long range. Really you can't go wrong with either but if that's what I would do.
