I am still looking for a radio and have narrowed it down to two radios that are within my price range, the Futaba 9CHP and the JR XP 8103. I was wondering some of your opinions on these two radios as far as which would be better for a new flyer to learn on and still offer the best features. I am more concerned with the function of the radio than ease of handling. I want the best within my price range. Thanks for the help.

I would go 9C. I have seen the plastic on JR transmitters crumble including my 10SXII side panels.

on the 8103 you are limited with what you can do with the mixes. such as if you wont a mix for idle 1 for example you have to do1 and 2 togehther. mix neutral. or mix 1 and 2. futaba not familar with but probably more programmable

Even thoug I come from JR country I would have to say that Futaba are putting a lot more effort into their radio gear than JR. The 3810 or 8103 transmitter cases are well know for cracking. I have owned a 3810 and although it gave me good service, it did crack and not having full control over all channels is not very good. JR is coming out with the PCM9X but I believe it is not availiable in the US yet anyway. Has some nice features having had a play with one. Basically speaking if Futaba offers good service where you are I would go with them. I think there stuff is of the same quality but Futaba take 10 points for clear instruction manuals whereas JR doesn't even have any.
