Default 6EXA of 7C??

Hi there,

I'm off to the Western Park model show tomorrow, a very big show over here in the UK. I'm looking at buying a new Tx whilst there but I'm really stuck between the 6EXA and 7C. I've been using the Skysport 6YG for about 3 years up until now.

Any advice anyone??

Paul

Go 6EX-2.4ghz. No worry about being shot down. I am getting rid of all my other radios (12) and going with these. Can be used for aircraft or helicopter.

Thanks for the quick response. Didn't really want to switch to 2.4. Forgot to mention that.

There is a feature comparison chart at
http://www.futaba-rc.com/radios/feature-compare.html
The 7C has 10 model memory and the 6EXAS has 6 model memory.
Unless the 7C has features or model memories you need (or think you'll need in the next few years) you can save some money and use it to buy other things.

Having changed radios and frequencies over the last couple of years, I have learned that you save money by spending the extra money up front and not having to sell the old stuff (which depreciate very quickly) and buy the better models later on. IMHO, the features that the 7c has over the 6exa are well worth the extra money.

but the 7C has one glaring issue.. I fly Futaba, (9c and love it, saving for a 12Z) but the lack of an ailevator (dual elevator servos for independent elevators) function really bothers me.....

An easy fix with an Expert reversing Y ($15).

Got back from the show this evening and what a great day it was. Very very muddy though! As for the issue of whether to get a 6EXA or a 7C.... well how does a JR X2720 sound? Was converted to JR by a few people there, and was offered a deal of the set for the same price of the 7C. So how could I lose out? Anyone got any opinions on this set?
