Default Spektrum 2.4GHz 5-channel Transmitter from E-flite ( LP5DSM ): Any Details?

Just saw the soon to be released " E-FLITE Blade CX 2 RTF Elec Coaxial Heli" with "Interference-free 5-channel E-flite transmitter with built-in Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM technology":
http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=EFLH1250

Looks very impressive with a price tag of under $200. That's for a helicopter WITH a 2.4 GHz, DSM 5 channel radio sytem.

My questions concer the radio:

1) Is the transmitter programmable for more than 1 aircraft? If so: how many?

2) Will 4 or 5 channel receivers become available for use in fixed wing aircraft? If so, details please (size/ weight/ price/ range/ etc.)

IF it is multi aircraft programmable AND seperate aircraft receivers will be available within reason, then I will DEFINATELY put this item as #1 on my Christmas wish list.

I just received my Blade CX-2 from Helihobby. Four days from order to delivery with $10.00 discount coupon. The Transmitter has a Bind feature to recognize the GUID code of a single specific receiver and you would need to do the binding process, very easy, for changing to another receiver. The transmitter is not programmable as far as I know except for dip switches for reversing directions of servos etc.. In this short time I have owned the kit I am very happy with it. I have an HDX-450 and had a few crashes at first but I am learning so I will use the Blade for training. It is very responsive and is great for indoors. The CX-2 flys perfect right out of the box. Hovers in one spot easily for longer than I ever thought was possible without touching anything except the throttle slightly. It does have an unused CH5 with a 0 to 100% dial.

Thanks for your reply, bart2461.

From your description, it sounds like this is a really nice helicopter. And from what I am seeing in the pictures, it LOOKS great also.

But, I am hearing (and as you have suggested) that the transmitter is NOT multi-aircraft progammable. That is: it can only be set-up for 1 aircraft, and has no multi aircraft memory.

That is a HUGE disappointment to me. If they (Horizon?) were to include (sustitute) a Spektrum DX-7 transmitter for maybe an additional $50 or so, this would be something I could not resist.

Yes, I have the sim. Pre Flight, tell them which transmitter you have and they send you the software and correct cable. I ordered the Blade edition software, cost 35$ & $5 shipping.
