If you where planning that, I would suggest just getting a devo 7channel RX, 2 cheap speed controllers and a $10.00 gyro. It would be cheaper and you would have parts you can move to another heli later if you so desire.
If you get a devo, go for the 8s. I have a 7 which is what everyone is trying to peddle to get rid of them and it is not a very good tx. I only use it for Phoenix flight sim and keep it plugged in to a power converter because the battery life is so poor. Hard to program compared to devo 8.
I assume the smaller birds like the UFly's and CB180 etc are all WK RX's not Devo? Since they are older models, I was hoping I could have a simple drop in replacement, but looks like CP style electronics is the way to go with separate ESC, RX and Gyro.
Also I'll be getting the Devo 10
I plan to get into Multicopters in the next year or so, and I've been told the 10 is a great radio for it's price, and will do everything I need.
