The Futaba 7CHP if you are on a budget

The Futaba 9CHP if you want something with 9 channels

The Futaba 9ZHP if you want synthesized freq capabilities

The Futaba 14MZ if you like to brag alot


Servos should be high torque simular to the below:

Futaba S9202 if your on a budget

Futaba 9252 if you want speed and precision


.

Save time when crossing a one-way street by only looking in one direction

The JR 6210 if you are on a budget

The JR 8310 if you want something with 8 channels

The JR 9310 (9X for Europe) if you want the best radio available in the market.

The JR10X if you like to brag alot

I think one more JR-Futaba round started again

I think the JR 2610 is the 6210 in North America. I'm also an advocate of JR, just don't expect to get a very helpful or informative manual (says a PCM9X owner )

SRH990 you are right 6210 in North America (I am always confused with the numbers used from JR 2610/6210, 8310/3810).
just don't expect to get a very helpful or informative manual
Personaly I never used the manual for my 9X. It's so simple that even a 8 year old kid can program it

It looks like I'll have to manage with my 13 year old kid, not having an 8 year old available

I'm managing pretty well so far having moved up from a 347 but there's just so much more available to tweak! Still, having a 401 I forget about revo mixing (never used it with mechanical gyros anyway) I've just got to cope with the complexities of the up coming governor.

The point I'm making with JR is that they produce outstanding radios but the instruction manuals leave a lot to be desired, unless you can read Japanese. I know JR aren't alone in this and it wouldn't affect me buying JR but they could make the product even better. My 347 has a great glossy manual, the PCM9X has little better than a photocopied brief guide. Still, at least it keeps the 'how to' guide authors in work

The 9X is so intuitive, that the manual is at risk of slowing you down!

If you buy a 9X, you won`t need the manual! My manual is in japanese.. No problem setting it up (and I can`t read japanese)
A great radio with a very large screen compared to Futaba 9C

specify pcm so you can have slightly safer fail mod
- throttle to idle on lost radio, and check it works properly .
Genuine xtals only
AA8VL is on the money for servos, a 3001 is sweet as on the throttle, 401/9253 or 9254 is sweet on the tail.

If your thinking batteries
Lithium in tx and rx if spare coin otherwise sanyo nicad batteries, I run 1700 mA/hr 4 x A size.
4 x ~13 min tanks max fastest charge capable and charge at the field at 2.3A, 8 minutes per tank, current limiting factor is the switch harness connectors. futaba genuine 1500mah is ok ~3 tanks max.

Avoid buying a short term tx.
Have fun !
Regards Don
