The radios are backwards compatible with the recievers; but the DX6 can only use the AR6000 rx, the DX7 can only use the AR6000, 6100, 6100e, 6200, 7000.

Are there plans to make them forward compatabile from now on ? Seems to be like buying a computer and computer games if they don't try and make some sort of standardized compatibility. To make the jump to change all your models every time could get rather expensive

I don't think so - same reason why you can't already develop a computer game for Windows 3000. Also 2.4GHz is still relatively new, so why freeze any further development at an early stage? As long as the newer transmitters still work with older receivers, there is no reason for it.

Yes... They have recently announced the DX6i radio which uses DSM2 so it will work with most of the receivers (not sure of the specs, so I don't know if it will support the AR6000 and BR6000 receivers).

I'd bet the DX6i will support both DSM and DSM2, just like the 7 and 9303.

On the other hand, the plug-in modules are DSM2 only, aren't they?

Yes, modules are DSM2 only. I'm guessing that the DX6i is too, hope I'm wrong.

why are you thinking it's DSM2 only? neither the DX7 or X9303 are... any reasoning or just a guess?

Ok, then I speculate that it will be XPS compatible.

Why they come out with a DX6i? what for? I wished they would come out with a AR6000 for DSM2. The AR6000 is simple and good range, long antennae that stick out of the fuselage, just plane work!

the DX6 + AR or (BR) 6000 combo has worked perfect (so far) on all my planes.....really like the dual Rx-Rf links, dual polarity antennas- single package plan form up to the quad flap (crow) level...the required flap servos y-splitter is just a little kinky..... the DX-6 would really have been beter if introduced as a 7 chan design (how much more would just 1 more chan have cost ??) but as is, range is 'otta sight at least for my eyeball condition + special tinted flyin glasses and combined with external switching Bec's (Park brand) to insure constant volts to Rx-flite pack system, no hits or lock-outs yet.......... kw
