I am purchasing an Fury expert and am purchasing a receiver for it. Do I need 9 channel? I am not running lights or other things etc. Can I get a way with 7 channel? Or maybe 8?

If you are using Futaba you can get away with 6 channels. (You need a channel 6 for eCCPM control).

Things to consider are:

Will you be using a governor? (Maybe in the future). Some governors work without extra channels but to get most out of it you need at least one extra channel (for the GV1 you can even use 2 extra but that is not required).

Will the battery connection be shared with a channel? If it is you need a Y lead to use the channel. It is better to use a spare (not used) channel for this.

Will you be connecting a Voltwatch or similar device? Same story as with the power connection, a spare channel is better than a Y lead.

My advice is buy an 8 or 9 channel Rx and don't be sorry later.

I like to have easy access to gyro and gov settings, so I run 8 and 9 ch
rx's preferably, If you at least get an 8ch you'll have that option later, I'd skip the 7 ch.
BTW, the Fury flys really nice with a gov on it, especially for 3d.

you dont need 6 channels.

you need a 6th channel since that channel (#6)
is used for CCPM

subtle but important difference
