8J is a great radio. Low cost receivers and it gets the job done.

I also would vote for the 8J. You also might try to find a good used 8FG. With the 14 SG out there may be some good deals on one. I have the 8FG Super and it is a great radio. Although I haven't flown an 8J I have helped program them and I had no issues. Good luck. Chuck

I agree with cwright, about getting a used 8FG. The thing I don't like about the 7C is that their are no graphs on screen.

Much as I hate to say it, spend the extra and get one you want need, or want to worry about upgrading. Futaba 14SGA

If your just looking between the 7C and the 8J, I would go for the 8J.

You get one more channel and lots more features.
