Question
DX6i and DX5e wireless buddy box?

First off, if I didn't find a discussion on this topic already, please direct me to it.

I have a DX6i and Dx5e and was reading about wireless buddy box when I thought it would be cool for me to buddy box my friend wirelessly without the cord. BTW he has flown before, hasn't said but I can tell he's into warbirds and 3D. Almost ripped the wings off my eflite Apprentice while pulling too many G's....

PS I now know that this technology has been around for quite a while but just heard about it

Couple more flights and he'll want to fly solo and you will have wasted that money.

Don't know. I know some brands have this built in but not sure if ou can get a wireless system for spektrum.

The point was buddy boxing unless your a teacher at a club is a minimal thing and the money would be better invested in the hobby for other things.

What's wrong with the cable method again?
