I'm a Spektrum guy. The DSMX tech works well, and the company appears to be doing well in bringing products to the market.

I personally use an older DX20 (and DX18), and they do everything I need with understandable programming. But they have newer models now.

I fly pretty much all the F3 disciplines (F, B, K, 5J, etc)

Oh my gosh... are you 'trying' to get a war started here??? You will never get a good answer here!!! There are way too many choices and way too many people with their own opinions!!

(BTW, I like JR, but would also fly with Spektrum and having had a a terrible experience with Futaba, never again Futaba)

FrySky x10S with Open Tx---best bang for the $$--has Hall sensor CNC sticks and reasonable priced Rxs with just about anything you might want. Open Tx does have a learning curve but unlike the other traditional radios you can make it do just about anything you could want.

Jeti : mature software, excellent hardware. A no-brainer.
