G'day Mate,
The only difference is the switch labeling, & it defaults to heli mode instead of Acro mode, I have a heli version, on mode 1, that is all that was imorted into Australia, in the first shipment,
& I use it on planes, no other differences.

To be a bit more specific; the heli version has the gear and flap (default "air" names anyway) switches swapped. The three position "flap" switch on the heli is on the top left shoulder of the radio with the "gear" two position switch on the face. Also, the heli version comes with no throttle ratchet which I understand is included with the radio if you want to use it, or it can be removed from the air radio.

And as Alan said, new models default to heli when you start to program a new model into the radio.

I picked up a DX-7 to play with until my new X9303 gets here and on the advice of my LHS guy, I got the heli version and I really like it even though I fly mostly airplanes. So after having used it for a bit, I changed the backorder on my X9303 to a heli version....

Most 3d kinda guys prefer the non ratcheting throttle. Anyone that flys my Funtana on my 9CH asks me how to get a smooth throttle stick.
