Very good radio. Every bit as good as the Futaba 8U and a easier to program. You'll probably want to get the Heli version as it won't have the ratchet on the throttle and may (can't remember) have the swithes in more convienent locations for heli flying.

That is a good radio, I had one(XP8103 H) and it was very easy to use with all the functions you will ever need.

Right now, i have an JR 10sx(Ebay special--got it really chea) and it is even easier to use

I can help you navigate you radio if you need any help.

Don't count out the new Futaba 9 channel. It is easier to program than the 8U it replaced, and is $100 cheaper.

I got the 8103 A Digital Trims as my first radio. I love it and am not limited to what I can go into for a LONG time. I removed the ratcheting on the throttle so I can use it for helis. I like the movement in my planes too!
