There is only one switch to switch between R1 and R2’s channel when not in diversity mode.
Charging led (red = charging, green = charged): the initial charge took about 4-5 hours to full on my 1.5A 12v charger.

Pros
Large bright screen
Well built, high quality plastic
Clean design, not many switches/buttons to fiddle with
Built in 4000mah lipo (presumably) with good battery life
foldable sunshade which acts as screen protector when not in use
Mounting clip for radio receiver well thought and very sturdy

Cons
Charging took quite long to full charge
Does not have OSD to change screen settings – contrast, brightness etc etc
Default contrast is too high – “burns out” highlight areas and reduced the amount of detail
