Ordering 2,4 gHz conversion for FF9
 
Ive decided to convert my still very good old FieldForce 9 to 2,4 gHz:

1) I prefer the Spektrum set over the Assan. Assan is (far more) better available on internet shops, however Spektrum will bind with all those nice RTF micro planes that are standard equipped with Spectrum. Is my assumption right?

2) On the net I can only find the required Spektrum MSFUT7 modul in a combo with the Spektrum AR7000 Rx. For I only fly small (electro and sail) planes I wont use this Rx. Do you know where the MSFUT7 modul is offered separately, or even better in a combo with one or more Spektrum AR6100 or AR6100e Rxs?

3) Tried to under stand the difference between the AR6100 and AR6100e and did not find this yet. Can you explain me that?

Although Im a very experienced RC-flyer, Im a complete dummy on RC-techniques :o so a real huge thanks for any help:):):).
