Dear All heli flyer,

Now I am consider to buy DX7 and wondering the respond speed compare between Spektrum compare Futaba 7C. Secondly, are the channel enough for Nitro Heli???

Kindly advise as I still very new in this remote world.

Both are good radio's. I prefer Spektrum so that is what I use. My friend (the one in my avitar) fly's the Futaba and it feels OK. If you get the DX7 SE it is faster than the Futaba but the regular DX7 and the 7C are the same. To me the DX7 feels more solid and better built but my friend has no problems with the 7C.

A 7 channel radio is fine for flying a nitro heli. At some point down the road you may want more channels but 7 is enough to fly a nitro.

Thanks for your information. One of my friend is using Futaba 10C and he use up to 8 channel for trex 600 with gov + etc. but no scale flying. May I know the advantage DX7 SE over old DX7.

The frame rate is faster on the SE.
11-millisecond (ms) frame rate (standard DX7 frame rate is 22ms)
2048 resolution (standard DX7 is 1024)
The SE looks a little nicer.

The average Pilot would probably never notice the difference but it is cool to say you have it. You also have to have a receiver that supports the higher resolution.

I've heard the SE doesn't have a trainer jack, so no simming on it. Tha

Yeap, SE doesn't have a function trainer port, so no buddy boxing and no using it to fly sims.

And the higher resolution and faster frame rate only applies to using it with the AR7100/AR7100R, AR9000/R921, AR9100/R922, and R1221 Rxes. And all these are NOT cheap Rxes.
