Default Trex 450 Radio Questions

Hey there, I've been observing the forums for info for some time now and decided to join in.

I think I'm about to buy the Trex 450 Pro Super Combo (everything except for transmitter/receiver):<a href="http://www.hobbyhyper.co.za/pKX015074TA/Align-T-Rex-450-Pro-Super-Combo.aspx">http://www.hobbyhyper.co.za/pKX01507...per-Combo.aspx
</a>But I don't know what transmitter to get, I previously flew a esky Belt CP and own no programmable radio's.

I've been looking at the Spektrum DX7 Radio.
But since the package of the trex already includes servo's, I don't want to buy the unnessesary ones that comes with the radio.

So is there any way of buying the radio without servo's but with the battery, receiver etc.? I don't seem to find any.

Thanks in advance!
PD

Try Horizon Hobby... I have a DX7 and love it. There is a new DX8 on the market, but I have yet to use the 7th channel on my DX7 and I have over 10 models. I just received an AR7000 receiver for my new Trex 500 ESP. Might put lights or something else...

With this receiver (AR6110) for your 450. I have many of those, no problem:

HobbyKing makes a clone receiver. I have a few, and they work well (no range problem)

You could get a Dx6i for about $179.00 I fly my Trex 450/500/250 & blade MSR + pheonix flight sim on it. If you don't intend to go nitro it's all ya need but the Dx7 would be great !

Alright thanks.. The DX6 looks like a great deal.

A bit off-topic, but concerning costs on crashing planes vs helis, are there a big difference?
I've heard of a lot of unsalvageable plane crashes but not a lot for helis..

Thanks

You get a lot better menu, interface and features with the DX7 for 20 dollars more. I don't see a deal, unless you are getting it with a heli.

You have to do a lot of damage to a helicopter before it is UN-economical to repair. But no helicopter crash unsalvageable. All parts can be unbolted and repaired unlike airplanes where the structure could be so damaged that a complete new major assembly is required.

There are more parts out there for heli's, but then again, a heli uses more mechanical parts.

Alot of your planes use wood.

Wood won't last long in a crash......Heli's use mostly plastic, aluminum and CF.

Yes, you can actually repair dang near any heli crash.
