Do you know if there is any difference between the DX7 and the DX7SE from a hardware perspective, or is it all done in the firmware?

Why are you guys surprised on no bearings, no 140ccpm, etc. JR/Spektrum is smart, they aren't going to take away from 9303 and 12X sales by releasing a cheap radio that does everything. Think about it.

Everybody wants it all, oh and free BTW.

The DX7 and DX7 SE are identical except for the speed and resolution although due to the current firmware you are unable to utilize the trainer/sim port.

I have been running the DX7 SE for over 1 week now and can say that there is a much better feel over the stock DX7 (or any other radio for that matter).

The DX7 SE is the fastest production radio ever made period, there is nothing else that even comes close.

As I posted in a previous thread you will really need an 8V system in order to realize the full potential of the radio along with higher end Spektrum/JR 2.4 RX's (the AR7000 will not work).

Been running my 7 which has the same software as the SE and it is a difference, and as Mike says the difference is really noticeable with 8volts for certain. Bearings would have been nice, it is abit tedious to install the bearings, mine took about an hour to do being carefull not to pinch any lines.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Did you flash upgrade your DX7 or is it a late model DX7 non SE?

and how exactly did you go about installing bearings in it? Was it a custom job?

If you want to add bearings you can purchase them at Boca Bearings and you will need to do it yourself.

It's not an easy thing to do and as with any mod will void your warranty should you need it.

I have felt a few DX7's with the bearing upgrade, it makes it a little bit smoother but for all of the work involved, I would say it's not worth it.

Like Mike said, changing the brass to bearings can void warranty, it takes awhile to do, if you do a search there are threads with "how to" in them, it's time consuming is all. As far as the software, no I myself had nothing to do with it, I have been testing it is all.

The bearing upgrade was a worth while one for me. My throttle stick was a little sticky at low stick. Once I did the upgrade it was smooth again.

The DX7 SE looks neat to me but I wish it had a training port for the sim

IT's what I do.

I replaced the bushings in my DX7 with bearings.

It took me about 45min and I didn't think it was very difficult at all.

If you can build a helicopter, set it up and maintain it, this modification is a cake walk.

Yes there is a socket but a cap on it and no program in settings to buddy .The case is same as DX7 but program is different. This is because SE is faster and will not communicate.

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

I haven't seen the bearing specifications required for the conversion.
Inner, outer, and width.
