You should look at the Futaba 8FG it does more then the 10CHG.

P.S. sorry for the spelling or the grammar I am dyslexic!

"best" is a matter of (widely varying) opinion.

They both work

8FG is one up on the 10CHG (IMO)
The 8FG is a 14 Channel radio. To drive the point home, it has four more channels than a comparable 10 channel radio. It is more comparable to and has the programability and functionality of the 12FG. But, The screen size is down there with most 8 channel radios.

I went from a JR9303 to a Futaba 8FG. I cannot believe how full featured and programable the 8FG is as compared to the 9303. Keep in mind that the JR9503 is a JR9303 with a couple of (minor) new features, a backlit screen and a bigger memory card. The 8FG was more than a step up for me. It was a couple of steps up. Don't let the "8" before the "FG" or the small screen size fool you.

Best?
Depends on what you are look for. If you want model match, BNF then JR it is. If you want programability and functionality, Futaba hands down.

P.S. There is nothing in the 10CHG that you will not find in the 8FG Super, except for a bigger screen.

I've setup helis on both radios and I would lean towards the 8FG. I currently use a 14mz and the 8fg would be my second choice hands down. Then again it's your choice but they both work great.

Many thanks for all of your comments and I think I am going to get a 8FG.
Whats the big difference in 8FG and 8FG Super?. Should I get 8FG and if I want I can upgrade to Super maybe.

Thanks,

The difference between the 8FG and the 8FG Super is one says "Super" on it. That's it. An old 8FG with the latest firmware is, essentially, "super."
And the two slider tabs on the back, but no one cares about that

One thing that I came to realize is with modern FBL equipped ships, the level of "programability" becomes far less an issue. I have a simple pitch curve and governor settings, with a simple throttle curve in place if the governor kicks offline. I don't need mixing or any other advanced features. Since most of the FBL units take a straight single servo input rather than CCPM, even CCPM timing/interaction is not an issue.

So at that point it comes down to two things. Transmitter feel (case, stick, gimbals and switch locations) and your preferred RF scheme.
My personal choice remains the JR 12X on DSMX. If I could get that level of gimbal feel, and identical switch locations on a simple 8 channel with minimum programability it would be fine. Since I fly a bunch of helis with DSMX sats, and still have a few giant scale fixed wing on DSM2, changing RF scheme is not in the cards for me.

But the real thing that keeps me on the 12X or 9503 is switch location. I cannot get my ring fingers between the upper switches on Futaba or Hitec. As a pinch flyer, I want my ring finders between the switches to manage flight mode and hold.

Respectfully disagree
One thing that I came to realize is with modern FBL equipped ships, the level of "programability" becomes far less an issue.
With the new flybarless systems, programability is key.

Example 1) Take the governor governor function on some FBL systems. They tell you what channel it is on, and you have to use that channel. The functions on that channel may be limited on some radios. So you end up with only one head speed that is governed. I have three different head speeds, all governed via 3Gx. It is all tied to channel 7, but I could have done the same if it where channel 5.

Example 2) Take the upper, lower, and neutral pitch points on an FBL system. On most systems, you level the swash, using the connecting rods and maybe some sub trim and prey that the swash is in the center of travel. If not, when you adjust your swash pitch, you end up with either more positive or more negative. With the 8Fg you can program this out to have equal travel. I'm not talking end points. I'm talking about using the swash function.

Programability gives you the flexibility to set up the aircraft to your liking, no worries.

I wonder if we can get Mark to index all these "best", "which should I buy", "thumbs vs pinch", "electric vs nitro"... ... threads so instead of seeing the same old "my ____ is better than your ____" (fill in the blanks) arguments day after day, we can just point to an existing thread.

I'm with Andy on this one. They both work. As do all the other "top" brands out there. "Best" depends upon who you are and has no answer.
