Yes welcome back. You have made good picks on your models. I have a 550L in my fleet of 17 heli's and it is one of my favorite to fly.
Good luck and have fun.

If it was me, it would be a DX-8 or a DX-9. They are both excellent it just depends on how much you like the extras. I fly other things and these two can do it all.

Buzz, only 17 helis? 21 here and 5 quads. You've got some catching up to do!

Radios are sort of like the old Chevy/Ford arguments. Truth be told, the majority of today's radios are quite good. Personally, I've flown Spektrum radios since 2001, currently flying a DX9 for well over 2 years and have been very satisfied with it. I find them easy and intuitive to program.

Looking at either DX9 Stealth or the JR XG14. Trying to find them today for a touch and feel.

Ha, maybe I can barrow some from my son and look cooler. LOL
Yes you are right of course. Radios are all good now but like you say the Spektrum is very intuitive.
Did you get a new job or are you just skipping work.

Well after going to a few shops and trying out lots of radios I finally landed on one and placed an order - only had mode 2 in store and I use Mode 1. Futaba 18SZ was what I decided on, size was great, smooth sticks compared to all the others I tried. Never did get to try a JR XG14 but didnt want to risk not trying it out and the 18SZ felt great.
