I currently have a trex 450 with a spectrum dx6 TX. I just bought a hdx 500 which I had plans of using the dx6 also, but "someone" told me I needed to upgrade to the dx7.

Is the dx6 and ar6000 rx adequate enough for a 500 size electric???

Thanks..

Personally I run a 6200 in my EP8 (500 size).

Too much metal and CF in that size heli for me to run a 6000 or 6100.

The 6200 is not compatible with the Dx6! I think the 6000 is the only one compatible with the 6.

I understand that, I was just giving a data point, taht IMO, a 500 sized heli is outside the park flyer size limits of the AR6000/AR6100s.

And Spektrum even states only up to 450 sized helis.

I fully agree with pinecone , for a 500 size heli(i fly the EP8 EX also) i would not use anything less than the AR62000...
