Spektrum 7 verses 7s how much better ?
 
How much better is Spektrum 7s compared to the 7 ?

G'day Mate,
The DX7s is much much better than the DX7, telemetry, easier to program, easier to adjust to your requirements, ie, stick tension, throttle ratchet on or off,
DSM2 & DSMX, throttle cut, trim step, & the list goes on.
Try it you will love it.
Cheers

Allan, thanks much, that will help me to decide on a used 7 ($100) verses a new 7s
I think it will be worth the extra cost

G'day Mate,
And I believe you get at least one, maybe 2 receivers with the DX7s.
Well worth the cost.
Cheers

I will second everything Allan said. The DX7S is much nicer and worth the extra $. You can upgrade the firmware which is not possible with the DX7.

Also you can fit a LiPo transmitter battery which gives you 40 hours of run time. I can fly for an hour every day for a month without needing a charge.

Thanks guys, I will look into the extra built in value of 1 or 2 recievers when buying a new dx7s, the used dx7 has a small ar500 spectrum receiver,
and I came across some bad reviews on that receiver, have you heard anything on that ?
Also a friend bought a Turnigy radio from Hobby King it has like something like 50 channels, telemetry with voice, you name it, it has or does it for $200 new!
So now I have a new option. Your input is greatly appreciated

Go with the 7S it is a great Tx. I have a J R 9503 and end up using the 7 S a lot more

and service and any spec help from H H well you cant beat it try that with H K R/L

Is it possible your friend's radio is the Taranis? The Turnigy radios are much cheaper but the Taranis is about $200.

It is made by FrSky and is a very good radio for the price. Very different to the Turnigy radios.

dandeeman 10-20-2014 01:20 PM

Rob, you are correct It is a Taranis, thanks

I bought a Taranis recently to see what all the fuss is about. For a $200 radio I am really impressed.

It can hold its own against my more expensive radios and out does them in many ways.
