Thanks for the great info. That 150MGR looks like the ticket and with only a slight weight penalty. I'm going to order one from Allerc here in the US. http://www.allerc.com/product_info.p...oducts_id=2121
you will probably get many different answers to your question, but my personal suggestion is to ask Santa for a new Spektrum DX6i. I have not handled one yet, but it appears to have all of the same great features as the venerable DX7 but with a better price tag. It will take you a LONG time to outgrow this radio.
