I also have the 10C and you can select the wrong model without any problem
You mean you purposely selected the wrong model with the 10c and you were not able to control it? Are both models using the same type of receivers?

What rx's are those two? If one requires 7-ch mode and the other is 10-ch mode, then that would explain what you are seeing.

I currently fly Futaba, but I agree with Dood. That 10C is hideous. The interface is nice but the module is terrible looking. Call me shallow, but it's just about enough for me to go with the X9303.---------

I too am trying to decide which radio to get. You will have to ultimately make the decision based on what YOU want and like. I am/was a die hard JR person. I started with Futaba radio gear and then made the switch over time to JR because I liked what I thought was easier programming with the JR radios. This weekend, I setup a friends heli using a new 10C 2.4ghz radio. With no manual, I was able to work through all the settings and have the heli setup in a matter of minutes. I think I have decided to go with the 10C. I like the 9303 also, but there was just something about the 10C that I liked but I can't pinpoint exactly what it was, it just felt like the radio that I was looking for. I was really leaning towards the 9303 until I got some hands-on setup experience with the 10C. They both have their pros and cons.

the antenna may look weird but I believe there is a pros/cons for it. With that design, I should able to run 72mhz and begin to fade to 2.4Ghz as I go.

may be that design is for future 5Ghz module.

It was in the air, but now it's on the ground. :)

I can understand the aesthetic downer the module brings. . .One thing I LOVE about my 10C is the backlit display. I didn't realize just how much easier it is to see until I look at someone else's radio. According to someone who has access to test data, the 10C has the lowest average latency on the market. . . allegedly 22ms or so. From what I'm told this is less than the Spektrum/JR offerings. The receiver's aren't that much more, the programming IMO is MUCH more intuitive. . . you don't need the manual to program. . .it's all very menu driven. The data stream stays fully digital to the module (two connectors vs one) so there's no performance decrease because of the module, but you have options between using your old 72 MHZ stuff on your airplanes, and your 2.4 on your helis. . . and then when the next new-fangled technology comes out, you can pop that module in too!! About the only thing i'm unhappy about is the Mode 4 trim issue, even though I fly in mode 2. . .when I purchase something I want everything to work as designed, regardless of how often i will use it. In the grand scheme of things though. . . as it pertains to me. . that is small potatoes. The control layout is awesome, I like the FaSSST system a bit better than DSM2 I think. I have two associates I fly with that have both had extended lockouts w/their spektrum systems @ our field. No probs w/any of the fassst users. It seems I'm always finding something else I really like about the radio. . so pick one up and check it out.

Its not available in heli mode unfortunately.
Its for planks. You'll find "SRV. Speed" in the menu. Can't miss it.

The reason for having two antennas on the 10C is because it can accept both 2.4 and normal FM modules. If it didn't have the old type antenna, the normal FM modules wouldn't work. It's backwards compatibility, for people who still have (and most still do) have FM receivers, and don't want to convert their whole fleet to 2.4.

I remember a time when the DX7 came out, and there were no other 2.4GHz radios. As I recall, many who bought it said that it was the only radio to have, and nobody needed anything more, and the programs and extra channels of higher-end radios were unnecessary, and that they wouldn't buy them even if they had 2.4GHz capability. Reality was sort of twisted, back then. How times change.

There both good radios! Just purchase what is more common at your field!Its nice when you can get help with your programming!Everyone has a X9303 where I fly beacause Futaba took a very long time to come out with the 10C.Futaba owners switched over to JR due to that very fact!Man they lost alot of business switching over there line over to 2.4.MAAC#77677 Medicated daily for your protection

This bothers me too. Damn ugly sticking out behind the handle. But ugly are also the Skeptrum/JR aerials that don't fold at the base. The DX7 I had wouldn't even fit in my flightbox and that's the main reason it went.

The Futaba module that came with my 12FG is much nicer. The module bends forward and the antenna is in front of the handle. Also the module is thin and won't touch the ground if you put the radio down flat.

I held a 10C for the first time this past weekend and the only way it balanced via the neckstrap was with the 72mhz antenna fully extended. Now why in the world would Futaba design a 2.4ghz radio to be balanced using the 72mhz antenna?

Actually the 10C can take both 2.4GHz and 72MHz modules. Obviously Futaba still thinks 72MHz is popular. But why on earth did Spektrum make the DX7 balance with a 72MHz antenna that you can't even fit!

You still have balance issues with a DX7 or an X9303. That is why you see many people using a balancer when using a neck strap---------

The 10C however is a newly designed radio (compared to the 9C). If I were Futaba I would have wanted it to balance without the antenna (in 2.4ghz mode). I guess they do think 72mhz is still important.

wow, i too am deciding which to buy, I always used JR radios. I have been away from the hobby for a while. I looked at both in the store, i thought i liked the instr. manual a little better on the 10c. also, i am not too familiar with 2.4ghz, but i was told that the "little wire thingies" on the reciever need to constantly be 90 degrees. well the JR are 90 degrees, with the 10c I was told I would have to Tape them in place?!?!?!?! sounds a little Jerry-rigged. I could be wrong!
