A buddy has a DX7 that i can get for a great price but it is the airplane version. I know i can pull the ratchet out but what other problems will i face?

Hi,

From what I have seen it has same features and same programming, but the flight mode switch is on the front left of the TX rather than the top left (if I remember correctly).

If it doesnt work, throw money at it...

Flight mode switch location and throttle ratchet are the only differences.

Yep, I know a couple of guys who do it. No problems at all. You just have to get used to the flight mode switch being on the other side. If you have never flown with a heli radio, you won't even notice it.

I'm doing it no issues. Just have to deal with switch locations but you get used to it quick. Not a game ender for me.

I use an airplane DX7 and the only difference is the flight mode switch is on the top VS the back. not really a problem at all. oh, you also have to pop the back off and put some fuel tubing over the ratchet thing to make the collective smooth.

Move the switches to their "normal" location.

the ratchet is easy to get rid off just turn over the lil metal piece on throttle. I use one and have got used to switch location and couldnt imagine it any other way now.

Hey, where's the reset button?
