Futaba 8FG Super or Aurora 9

Hello everyone. I need advice. I'm going to build a giant scale gasser as my winter project. What would be the best Tx, the FUTABA 8FG Super or the Aurora 9. I like the secure feeling of the 8FG as well as the sbus but I like the telemetry features of the A9. Which would be the best pick?

Main advantage of the Aurora 9 is that it has telemetry.

Main advantage of the 8FG is that it has 14 (12+2) channels.

I own an 8FG and highly recommend it. I think it is more polished and technologically advances (excluding its current lack of telemetry, of course), because of things such as having higher resolution, lower latency, and using an SD card.

That being said, I know a lot of Aurora 9 owners highly recommend their radios too.

Really, what's important is that you get what you want.

I have the A9 and love it I do not fly anything that big, and all I fly is electric. The biggest plane I have is the 51'' AJ slick, and have been using the A9 all year with no problems. Another plus about the A9 besides its telementary is its touch screen, best thing ever it makes programing quick and simple. Plus there receivers are cheep compared to futaba.

Thanks for your response guys. I'm going to build the Goldwing Raven 50cc and I wanted to get one of these Txs.
