Default dx7 or x9303

Is the DSM2 in both radios the EXACT SAME or is the X9303 faster (2040 resolution or whatever)? All I have right now is a Optic 6 and with the gold pin problem I need a new radio. I really just need facts about them or compared specs. I would like the X9303 more for obvious reasons, but its a matter of money.

The DMS2 radio stuff is the same in both tx's. Resolution is not necessarily related to speed but defines the number of "steps" if you will that the system is capable of using, basically a finer control.

The X9303 (not the XP9303 with a 2.4GHz module installed) will run in a 2048 resolution when used with a 9 channel rx like the AR9000/9100 or the JR R921. When the X9303 is used with a 6 or 7 channel rx like the AR6XXX series or the AR7000's, then it works in 1024 resolution.

I have owned two Hitec Eclipse 7's(very similar to Optic 6) for the last several years and they are excellent radios. Several members at my club have the DX7 and really like them. I decided to buy the X9303 vs the DX7 just because I knew I would never have a situation that the transmitter could not handle. BUT, the X9303 is not as easy to use as the Eclipse 7, Optic 6, DX7. It is a very capable transmitter with many more programing steps required and the manual only describes basic programing. Whenever you want to use the more advanced functions of the X9303, you had best be very good at figuring out how the transmitter needs to be set up or be lucky enough to have someone who has used the XP9303 or X9303 that can help you. You will not find in the X9303 manual how to use all of its features. You will find people on this forum that will tell you to just go to the Horizon Support site and look at all the examples of programing the X9303. But all these examples are for the XP9303 and the biggest set up example is for a sailplane.
