Have you actually flown a CX2 ?? The drift is worse. And the response is slower. And IMO the servos are not as good as the originals. The motors have not been improved. They are the same. I like the CX with vortex motors 100 times better. The DSM is a nice option for the field where there are other people, but I don't think you need it for where you will be flying the bird. Which is mostly in your house.
You know........I'll have to somewhat agree here, I have 2 CXs (with ventilation mods) and now in addition, 2 CX2s. Aside from the occasional "glitch" from the CXs, I'd be hard pressed to pick one above the other. I actually find myself trimming for tail drift during flight more often with the newer red birds than I do with the originals. I love 'em all though, all four hover hands off for many seconds, something a weirdo perfectionist like me could never accomplish with the Esky Lama V3 I eventually ended up giving to my son.
