So I have decided to start flying again and I have an older DX7 that is still DSM2. I have found all the articles about having it changed over to the new DSMX.

Is there a place I can find telling me how much this will cost? Seems in the past I have always had fabulous luck and customer service with RX's I send in to get fixed.

Thanks,
Chris.

Carpe Diem!!!

It was $75. If you are not flying at very large gatherings then you can stay DSM 2. All the new receivers are backwards compatible.

My suggestion - don't convert it. Change the batterys and just fly it as is. If you want to stay in the hobby you'll probably want a new radio at some point. The new DX7 is looking like a great option, many nice features.

Very valid point. I probably won't mess with it then. As most of the time my schedule does not allow for me to travel most of the time. So probably won't be hitting any flying events anytime soon.

Somehow I just had a gut feeling last year when I tried to step away I should have kept my nice new 14sg radio.

Oh well live and learn.

Ha ha Steve. Trust me I will never ask for it back. I sold it to you fair and square. I am glad you are using it and hopefully liking it. As far as the 10c we will have to see about that.

Carpe Diem!!!

I was holding onto it just in case I wanted to try out uhf for long range flight, but all things considered I probably will never do that

I think the 14SG is by far the best radio in Futaba's lineup and it's the one I have but the new 10J looks good. Too bad about being FHSS only - and the ne, yet aother protocol for Futaba T-FHSS. The only modern Futaba protocol our 14SG doesn't speak.

I still use the old DX7 DSM2, cracking radio, but then it is a JR radio really!

I do not like the new DX7 as it shares the same huge bulky case as the DX8 and new DX6! My next radio will have to be the DX9 because there is no way im switching to Futaba!

60% of the time, it works every time!
