Because I sold it. Spent $220 at my LHS for it. Couldn't afford anything to fly because I spent that much on it. Overall I wasn't impressed with it's quality. Seemed fragile. Had an antenna issue once with it, too.

I've had the DX4e, DX5e, and DX6i for Spektrum. All are OK radios. I'd just like to try Futaba for once

Oh. Well, if you ever go fancy, you will need at least a '6i

Spent $220 for that Dx6i? Hell - I wouldn't be impressed with that radio at all for $220. I got mine for $80 used on the classifieds and the price was right for that.

Didn't have a choice really, wasn't allowed to do much shopping online at that point.

Torn between 6.5 or a new plane. I think new plane because I hardly spend time on the simulator anyway. Too busy building.
