Which radio to buy with Phoenix, DX-5 or DX-6?
I am finally going to retire my RF and switch to Phoenix. I use a dx-8 for flying, but dont want to put a ton of wear on it so I would like to purchase a DX-5 or 6 with the Phoenix. Is there any advantage to having a Dx-6 or will a 5 work just fine?

The DX-5 is about the equivalent of those throw-away radios that come with RTF models. It contains no programming whatsoever.

You can make Phoenix work just fine with a DX-5, by adjusting the settings within Phoenix, but it takes a minute to set up.

It's easier with a radio like the DX-6, just because the throttle and collective channels are controlled independently of one another.

I have one of those radios that came with a Blade CX2 that I used with Phoenix, and it does work. It's the equivalent to the DX5.

Thanks Dood, I will go with the DX6 in that case. I plan on using the radio for my combat planes this spring too, so it will be a better choice to use the 6.

I thought about this for awhile and as I couldn't source a mode 2 DX7 here in NZ at the time decided to just buy another DX8, transferred all my existing settings and use that for Phoenix. As well I now have a backup radio for flying if ever needed with no changeover problems. Merry Xmas
