I would choose the 8FG, but be advised that only 12 channels are Proportional. Ch13 and Ch14 are On/Off switches. You cannot set Travel, Subtrim, etc., with Ch13 and Ch14. The 8FG is still a good radio.

The 10C will only give you 8 proportional and two on/off channels. The 8FG gives you to use all 14 channels if your model has functions that work with the on/off channels. Those on/off channels are very useful for ignition kill, smoke and landing gear, so the 12 proportional channels go a long way. The 8FG also has the advantage of upgradable software through an SD card and virtually unlimited model memories.
