Just ordered a Blade mCP X - What transmitter should I get?

Just ordered a Blade mCP X - What transmitter should I get? There are so may options, and the transmitters I have now will not work with DSM2 (I have some old crap, getting back into the hobby). I searched the site and there are so many threads on different transmitters from hacks that allow DSM2 to crazy expensive transmitters.

I'm looking for a somewhat affordable, yet versatile transmitter that will be good for this as well as future purchases ( looking at a plane as well ).

Yeah was looking at that, but the 7 offers some more options (software mainly) that seem interesting.

or you can get a second hand radio like 9303 on ebay and buy a dsm2 module. Then your future is set.

JMO but I wouldn't attempt CP without a programmable TX.

If you can stretch the budget go for the DX7 over the DX6i. Much more capable.

Or look for a used X9303, better than either one by a long way.

I just picked up a DX6i for a good price, so hopefully this works out fine and then upgrade in the future as needed. From what I read the DX6i is a pretty good starter.
