While it is a good way to transition into DSM/2.4 it will IMO be somewhat slow and not fully provide the "connected" feeling the same as a native system will.This is the same way I transitioned into 2.4 and when I got my DX7 I immediately noticed a more connected feeling.Especially on a couple models I had that were kind of a bear to find that sweet spot when flaring and letting it settle in.
A module will also not let you take advantage of DSMX.Its a good way to transition and works fine but it is IMO a bit sluggish feeling.

I agree with aerocal. The difference in speed was much more obvious for me. I did notice the increase just a bit when I moved from the 9C to the DX-7 but a couple of years later I had to send my DX-7 in for repair. To let me continue flying, I got the module for my old 9C. WOW! Was that ever slow! I think when you get used to the faster speed, the slow down becomes more obvious. You also miss the model match feature.

Thanks for the remind about lack of model match when using a module.
I also went back and used mine after getting used to my DX7 and the speed/latency was alot more obvious to me too.

Get a new radio. There are used bargains due to the economy.
