As far as I know, the jr9303 supports DSM2 only. You really want a transmitter that supports the latest frequency hopping DSMX especially for larger helis and planes. Morever, the DX7s supports telemetry that may be useful later on. You don't need 9 channels for helicopters unless you are into FPV quadcopters.

Yip , if your a scaler that 9303 will be a better long term fit for you..will cover your retracts, lights, ect. Dx7s pick one only.

If you fly sailplanes at all, the JR has good programming. Otherwise if just copters/planes the 7S might be my choice.

Good luck with either - they are both good!

Cheers, martini

Don't get the 's'. It doesn't give you both idle up modes and is not as nice to program as the DX7. It can be better and cheaper to pick up a clean, used DX7 or DX7 SE.

I have programmed a friends DX7s and believe "Zen" is correct on the flight modes. I have 2 different idle up's on my DX7 and my friends S only seemed to have norm and idle up.

Glad that you do. However it seems that you have not used the DX7 or the DX7 SE, both of which have features that yours does not.

P.S.: Your're just reaching, kid. It's good you like your Tx but there is more to it than that. One of my flying buddies who used a DX7 for years just got the 's' version. Like a lot of helicopter fliers he used both idle up modes and now he can't.

The little wheel for programming is relatively fragile compared to the micro switches on the earlier units. I see they used a wheel on the DX8, which is too bad.

ummm Kid? LMAO! your funny! Had the DX7, be as it may I like the DX7s better.
Not into 3D and doubt I will ever find the need for two idle up's. Into scale flying which is good for me. Getting too damn old to start learning 3D flying and don't really care to actually.
So OLD MAN! had the DX7, had futaba's, JR's and Airtronics. For what I do? DX7s is good for me

dx7se also does not have a trainer port to use it for a sim controller either(DX7 for me).
2 idle ups are nice to to have 2 diff head speeds avail.i only use norm to lift off then switch right into IU1 or IU2

I know; I use an E_sky 4 channel Tx from a co-axial Llama for that.

Sure does give good control, and all the programming you need. A lot of people say they don't want to fly a helicopter upside-down and very often but not always it is because they can't see themselves progressing that far. Then, one day when upright orientations are no longer a mystery the urge to flip the little guy strikes, and phase 2 begins....

Dx7s works with Phoenix, just plug it in and phoenix detects it automatically. Port is on the back, looks like a mini stereo jack
