F-35 goes Spektrum, Huge Improvement

My Exceed F-35 was a terrible handling plane on the original Exceed (fm) radio. I even tried a gryo for keeping the wings level. The gyro helped some but the plane just wouldn't track straight. I thought of changing to digital servos. While at the local HS I saw a DX5e radio and figured maybe the refresh rate would be faster than the FM. Well Holey Cow! It's a night and day difference. Now the plane flies like it's on rails. And with a Don's Wicked motor is really hauls. I wonder if the new RTFs that come with 2.4g radios fly better.
