Default New Heli Reciever Question

So I've decided that I'm going to get a MsR for christmas after reading about them on here. Ido have a few questions though. My biggest is A better reciever. Now from what I've read a Spektrum DX6i is the best but why would i want a 6 channel reciever for a helicopter that isn't a 6 channel. Also I was looking and there are 5 different models of that reciever. So which one is the right one? Ido have a stock 6 channel reciever from a Helimax CP. Would that work?

Default RE: New Heli Reciever Question

Ihave a mSR that I bought ready-to-fly(was like 20 dollars extra to get it with the radio). Ialso have a DX7 radio. If you ever plan to fly a collective pitch heli Iwould get at least a 7 channel radio.
If you just plan on flying indoors for fun and not really plan on "getting into rc helis" Iwould just get the mSR ready to fly and it comes with a radio.
The radio it comes with is perfectly fine. But if you plan on getting a good radio for future use with other heli's.....then you could get the bind-and-fly version and get a good radio separately.
