I'm a futaba guy myself :-)

But if spectrum is your way

I would suggest either one of these systems, but prefer Futaba myself :-)

where in Worc are you? im in Webster about 10/15 mins away..

I fly 2 EXI 450s , flybarred , with decent electronics, and, Futaba Tx/Rx.. had it all for about 2 years now.. no complaints.
I dont do 3D and i'm no expert.. but i like the helis and they didnt break the bank..
i've "play'd" with the Blade "toys" ( mSR , CPP2 ) I have much more fun with my 450's
it's not a competition, it's a hobby
EXI 450 + FUTABA t7c Tx =
Phoenix Sim "it's free to crash on a sim"

It looks to me like it only supports 1 model! A large percentage of pilots have more than one model. With this radio you'd need one for each model!

I had a FlySky 6 channel Tx. The gimbals were notchy.

I recommend the $150 Dx6i. It supoprts 10 models. It will get you started and last for years.
