Well a 9 caf is an airplane radio an depending whats behind the 7c it could be one aswell. The two radios are great radios. I have one an wouldn't trade it for the world.

The 9C and 7C are worlds apart. Reading the bio on each of them would make you think the 7C is like a 9C with two less channels. Nothing could be further from the truth. The 9C is many times easier to program,the LCD is much better quality and it will give you much better mixing and switch selection.

If you're pretty sure you're going to get into helis, get the 9CHF. It's already set up for helis, no ratchet on the throttle and works just as well as the CAF for airplanes.

Jim beat me to it. If you are going to get into helis get the H version and while the 7C is a capable radio the 9C Super is worth the difference in price IMO
