For now the DX6i is just fine with me. Maybe a DX7i in the future unless someone wants to give me their used 8 channel Futaba or JR.
Expensive doesn't always mean better... I fly with a Devo 8 and I have achieved 4.7km range with no glitches, and that is flying with 1.2Ghz video feed and no filters, try doing that with 2.4Ghz spectrum or futaba RX, especially spectrum.
