Is it worth going from 10CHP to 8FG?
Are there enough useful features to consider moving from my 10CHP which is module based and allows me to run 72Mhz and 2.4 to the 8FG?

I will say Yes, just the fact that you can update the 8FG yourself for me is priceless, and then there's the awesome programming of the 8FG.

But if you're planning on still using 72mhz, then you will need the 10C.

I'm not looking to change. Just asking if the technology has gotten too far ahead of me yet. I'm not one that has to have the latest and greatest for the sake of having it. I do still need 72Mhz for a couple applications. Which models have the gimble position adjustments. I have small hands and could probably take advantage of THAT feature.

If you you make it sometime to Dayton, I'll let you fly my Freya with the 8FG.

If your models are eCCPM and you'd like to trim them to fly as best as they possibly can, then get an 8FG.

If you'd like to ever use a Futaba FBL system and take full advantage of its remote gain capability, get an 8FG.

Is there something in the 10C that you feel might be holding you back? If yes, then the 8FG will likely be able to handle it.
