Hi all,

Am in HK and leaving in 48 hours. Have a Futaba 8UHP tx at the moment.

Helis are:

Hirobo Shuttle ZXX (FM)
Hirobo Lepton EX (PCM)
MS Hornet X-3D (PCM)
TREX450 SE V2 (PCM)

At the moment I can manage with mixes, but it feels somewhat "constrained" in terms of the tweaking I can do with the swash settings on the TX. Do you guys think it's worth picking up a new TX while I'm out here, or just sticking with the 8UHP?

Finally, IF an upgrade is on order, the 9C Super looks the ticket, but then can I use my 8UHP 35Mhx "module" with it? Any reasons NOT to go with the 9C Super but w/sthg else?

Thanks
Raj

If your in the market to upgrade, why don't you consider making the move to 2.4 Ghz?

hmm am sorry, but the 2.4gig thing is something new to me (heard of it, but dont know what the upgrade involves).

Would I have to replace my PCM and FM receivers or just the FM one? I dont want to spend more than about US$300 on the tx, and want to keep all/most of my existing receiver gear, could something be had at that level?

A switch to 2.4 will require new receivers....

Yes, 9C use the same TX module as your 8UHP.

I'm not sure if the 2.4 system selling here conforms with EU's requirement, they just imported from US and I never see a CE mark on them......

Thanks for all the replies ppl =), will get myself a local FF9 Super (hopefully it'll be cheaper than the 35Mhz version!!!)
