Default DX6 or DX7???

I am new to flying Helis. I am not going to be doing any 3d Flying for quite awhile. I have an Honey Bee King 2 and a Blade CP Pro ( coverting to belt tail ). My Esky Radio is getting bad already. Glitching really bad and getting jumpy. So I am looking at the DX6 and DX7. I am having a hard time justifying the +200 to get the DX7 and 2 receivers. So someone please help me out here. Do I really need a DX7? Is the DX6 going to be good for Fast Forward Flight and maybe Loops, rolls and inverted at some point? Can someone justify to me spending the +200$?

Thanks

Its really not the type of flying its the range and features.

The DX7 is a full range system so if you plan on stepping up to larger helicopters you want the 7. If you can live with the programming limitations of the 6 and plan on staying park flyer size then save your money.

If you can afford the DX7, you are always better off with more radio than you think you need. As soon as you get started you will find that whatever you have, it is missing some feature that you wish you had.

If you budget is there, go for the DX7, otherwise the DX6 has a strong following.
