Hi All

Happy to see all R/C enthusiasts at one Place.
I am new in this Forum.

I want to purchase 7 channel R/C 2.4 Ghz radio . But in a fix between Spectrum DX7s 7 Ch with AR8000 NO SX's MD2 [SPM7800] & Futaba 7 c . I  want to use radio for Airplanes & Heli,s both. I heard Futaba 7c better than Spectrum DX7 in terms of reliability when Spectrum uses Technology DSM2 . But now it is DSMX  . Anyone Suggest about selection of Radio . Can Airtronics or Sanwaa be a better substitute for Futaba or Spectrum ?

Hello

This could be a very good point of discussion. What is better Futaba, JR. Sanwa, Spectrum etc... etc.. This list cannot end. Like all other products in the market, every product has one better feature to attract the customers.

Here what we suggest,
1. Simply do not look at the technology and features. Try and find out which company gives you better product line up for the hobby. Meaning if you are flying airplanes and want to try helis, would that company (Futaba, Spectrum etc..) have the product line up to support your next step?
2. How easy it would be to get the spares and other required products? (Prime question as we are in India Undecided)
3. And finally, which product is used at the field where you would be flying. This is important as person who would training you might have different product and it might not match with your system.

If you decide (which we think you should) to go for Futaba, we generally have required sets in stock. Visit www.spherehobbies.com/india

Good luck and happy landings.

You can trust the radio so much until your first crash with it.

With the world going electric, telemetry (of "remaining battery capacity") is extremely useful to such fliers.  Many people on our field are considering switching to radios (or thinking about getting add-ons) that provide this particular metric.  This allows them maximize flying time while preventing over-discharge of lipos. 

Futaba telemetry is available only on their highest end radio now... it will trickle down to others soon.

This is the single biggest reason for considering a telemetry equipped radio, as this is something that is useful every single flight.

When you are considering radios, some of the other considerations usually are :

1) Ease of charging and duration of how long a single charging lasts.

2) Availability and cost of additional receivers (if you have multiple aircrafts).

3) Compatibility at your field (for trainer/trainee sessions, availability of second hand receivers etc).

Basically think about things you will need routinely.  Not the one off stuff that you will need once in a blue moon.

Is Futaba still  more reliable than Spectrum DSMX ?

I don't think that's true. I am using DSM2 since more than an year and there are no reliability issues.
Buy the one which offers good features at a good price!
Not considering Sanwa?

Not sure that is true any more.  You are probably considering the active RC community of yester years.  The new reality is that shops like RCBazaar and RCForAll are now selling hundreds of Turnigy style 2.4Ghz radios every few months.

Plus many (most?) of the long time RC enthusiasts have now moved on from Mhz bands to the 2.4Ghz bandwagon.   

Just visiting any active field with lots of active members itself should put things in perspective.
