How does it compare to the DX6i ? I've been using the Aurora 9, just tried the DX6i several days ago and seem to like it a lot (price, feel, feature, and after market Rx).

Feature wise the pros over the DX6i are:

+Better Heli programming with the Eswash ring and the pitch/throttle mix delays and hover pitch.
+5 more models for a total of 15
+A variable position knob
+Slightly better airplane mixes with throttle and pitch curves (although you could use heli programming on the dx6i to achieve the same thing, albeit in a crippled way)
+6.8ms frame rate in S-FHSS mode.

Cons for the 6J compared to the DX6i are:

-the 6J embarrassingly bad display for something made in 2011, the DX6i atleast has a dot matrix display.
-the DX6i has servo monitor, something Futaba loves to neglect in their low end radios, including the 7C.
-the biggest minus of them all, the DX6i has receivers ranging from $4.99 and up, including great BNF planes and helicopters, the 6J has 2 or 3 receivers from tower hobbies and thats it, although as shown with the new Futaba 18MZ, they might make more radios FHSS compatible.
