8FG hands down. The eCCPM functions that come with the 8FG are simply awesome!
And you will certainly feel the difference over the 9c.

To stay with Futaba.... the 8FG is a great upgrade. One big difference is the weight, feel and balance from the neck strap ring. The battery: 1700mAh Tx NiMH and uses an SD card (up to 2gb) so, the firmware can be downloaded and updated directly. The radio also; actually has 10 channels.... 8 proportional and 2 on/off channels.

Great price especially if you take advantage of the extra Rx combo for $10 more.

You can also compare both radios here: http://futabarc.com/radios/feature-compare.html

The 10C has a few more mixes than the 8FG, but I like the flexibility of the 8FG.

Regards,
Doug.

Hooked the 8FG up to my trex 600 today and Whooaaa I almost Sharded myself!!! That baby is quick! Started to put some expo in but decided I just needed to adjust the ole reflexes and keep the big boy pants on! It's much lighter than the 9C and just feels oh so comfortable!!! Overall I'm impressed

Been flying without expo and it's just so dang touchy! I notice when I'm doing tail and nose stands and rainbows and am punching the heli forwards/backwards, If I don't have the cyclic exactly centered (I mean perfect) I get a alot more drift to the sides than with my 9C. I think the 9C was slow enough that I would just compensate during the punch over but now it happens so fast and the heli moves so much that I may soften up the center. I had a buddy once tell me (he had a 9C with no expo) that when he tells the heli to do something, he want's it to do it now. That may work for the 9C but I'm having a tough time getting the reflexs up to the speed of this FASST in HS mode!!! Overall am loving it though!
