Can someone tell me the advantage of having a 14mhz radio over a 9CHP or even a lower channel computer radio that supports multi point curves?

Besides being able to play mp3s!?

System speed is a huge advantage when you compare the 14 to the 9C. I'm not sure that you will see it on the Rex unless you can get better servos in the machine than we currently run.

The Mhz range is less susceptible to interference at lower numbers like 14. Better yet is the new to heli DX6 with giga hertz and spred spectrum with dual antenna reception. Multipoint curves are the norm and indespensible for even basic flying - 3D and circuits even are made possible with these curves - and flying style is accommodated by having a number of options for pitch /power and control sensitivity. Some models require eCCPM a program to combine servo signals coordinating ail/elev/collective pitch. The 14 MHz radio MAY become extinct with the giga hertz spred spectrum coming from RC cars to heli and aircraft. The DX6 is only @ $200 with servos (the servos are not high end but are included at this time).

Unless I miss my guess, I thought we were comparing a Futaba 14MZ to a 9C. Comparing a 14MZ to the DX 6 isn't fair, spread spectrum or not, there is a world of difference between the two.

I seriously doubt that the 14Z is any less prone to interference than the 9C. They both transmit in the same 72 mh band. The pulse rate is higher on the 14Z giving you finer resolution. Every little twitch is transmitted faithfully to the receiver.

The $400. receiver used by the 14Z is probably tuned to reject unwanted spurious transmissions slightly better than than the 9C, but that is not its claim to fame.

The DX6 is by no means compatible with with the 14Z or the 9C. It is meant for park flyers only. When it comes to glitch resistance, no radio can match the DX6 as all the glitch generating noise is far lower than the 2.4G frequency, so it was relatively easy for Spectrum to filter out this noise. The very concept of spread spectrum eliminates almost all unwanted signals.

good grief
I can't believe what I'm reading here - there is either too much money around you guys or you're bored. Given that this is a TREX forum I am assuming (always dangerous.....) that it's a TREX you want the radio for - in which case a basic Hitec Eclipse will do everything you could possibly need at a tenth the price - if you are a Futaba or JR/Airtronics whatever type then the base radio's from them are likewise - all you need! It's the pilot that makes the heli fly................

Lehner 1020 17 motor, Quark 33 ESC, HS56 servos on cyclic, Futaba 9650 and 401 on tail, power by a 6 volt BEC.
Not mine but one of our Clubs best flyers. Flys this in between flying his YS91 Furys!

I have seen alot of transmitters at different clubs. It doesen't matter to me what people use. I can honestly say my Futaba 9C Super is the easiest to program and understand ever. JR is werid to navigate with but each to their own .... I would love the 14mz, just can't justify over 2 grand for that......

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

Like I said - a radio is a radio - at the end of the day you move the sticks and the servo's follow!

Like you said, to each his own. I have a Futaba 9C and a JR 9303. In my opinion the 9303 is far and away the easiest programming computer radio I've ever owned. The Futaba is a pain in the a$$.

Like enginetorque said, you dont NEED a high end radio to fly a Trex but if you can afford it why not? I use the high end radios on my work helis (Bergen Gassers) and a much cheaper JR 347 for my rex. But if I was in the market for a low buck low end radio I'd go Spektrum.

The DX6 IMO is lots of BANG FOR THE BUCK - THE 14mz is Nuclear if your budget doesn't mind - my Optic 6 is a great entry radio at reasonable cost - personal preference is sure why so many brands exist and sell well - it is good you are asking and hear good info from people who use this stuff daily! (You might need a safe to take to the flying field for a $2200 radio).
