New Spektrum DX7 Black Edition

Hi,

Did I miss that it is a DX7 Black Edition out?
http://www.spektrumrc.com/Products/D...ProdId=SPM7000

I was thinking of a DX6 Black Edition for my indoor models but DX7 Black Edition could be a better choice perhaps.
I have not compared the differences between them yet.

The knob is the biggest feature change.

Actually, there IS this other feature or two ...

Too bad the manual isn't online yet. Once it is, you guys are going to want to read it!

That usually happens down the road, 6 months or a year.

I'm kind of upset by this, actually.

I just bought the DX6 because you guys stopped including the DX7 in your BNF setup guides, and a month later the new DX7 is announced.

So how many ways does this obsolete my brand new DX6?

It doesn't. There is an update for the DX6 coming out shortly which provides compatibility with DX7G2 files.

It's the same as the DX6 battery/charger.

Included? Or does it come with dry cells?

Thanks.

So true or false - the only difference between the DX6 and the DX7 is the rotary dial.

If the DX7 ends up with more programming options or anything, that's really going to suck for anyone that bought into the DX6..
