Default Range of Spectrum DX7

I need to know what the maximum range of the DX7 has been experienced so far. I know my Futaba PCM will fly out to over a mile away, it has been measured with ground spotters. I need maximum range with the nature of flying I do, but am worried that the DX7 high frequency band will not allow this sort of range. Has anyone done a measured ground test in excess of a mile?

You're not going to be limited, I haven't seen a specific range for the AR7000, but the park flier version (AR6100) has been tested to 1.1 miles. I flew a 72" plane out to the limits of sight (I have 20/10 vision, so that's pretty far), without issue on the AR7000.
