Default Which radio?

Ok pilots....I need your input.....A friend of mine as come into some R/C stuff and he cares less about it...got it because of a death in the family. He will give me a Futaba 6EX 2.4 mhz radio and receiver (Brand New) or a Spektrum DX7 w/receiver. Yea I know free is always good, but in this case if the Futaba is not as good as the Spektrum I want to let him sell the one I do not get.

I would like everyones input on which I should get. I know radios are for the most part pilot choice and with both being 2.4 mhz I thought they are for the most part the same

I would take the Spektrum. I am not that impressed with the Futaba 6ex transmitter.

Suggest you try a simple www search e.g. using best combined search engine www.dogpile.com enter "futaba 6exa fault problem" and check the list displayed . Same search engines with "Spektrum DX7 fault problem" show few.
- suggests DX7 is better option.
