Any thoughts on the NX10
I'm contemplating a radio upgrade this season. I have been using my DX8G2 for the last couple of seasons, and it's been flawless. What interests me about the NX10 is higher quality gimbals. The other option that I have been considering is the Futaba 16IZ. I would love to hear from anyone that has had their hands on the NX10.

I haven’t had the NX10 but had a DX9 Black Edition multiple times and the older DX8. I’ve had Futaba 14SG also and 16SZ before. In my honest opinion, Futaba Radios are excellent radio, very reliable. The screen on 16SZ aren’t that great on direct sunlight, 14SG is a little better on that but you can’t go wrong with either one of them. Solid Tx’s, very reliable, you’ll notice a big difference compared to Spectrum Tx.

NX10... So, spektrum!

Better gimbals... I would like to see improvements on binding procedures...

If you are looking for better gimbal, keep the Dx8.

Thanks for the input. I used Futaba a lot back in the 80's and 90's before I started using JR. They have always been a good radio. I will say that the DX8G2 has worked perfectly as far as signal and binding. My main concern is the lack of bearing support in the gimbal construction, and a lack of features.

To be honest, I only just stopped using my Jr X388 72mhz system. I did really enjoy having separate dials to adjust hovering pitch and throttle, as well as overall pitch. I always used these for changes in air density at the field, and for setting up a new machine. Having been out of the scene a bit, can the trimmers on the 14SG or DX9 be used for this type of function? The DX8G2 definitely does not posses this feature.

I like that functions too from the days of futaba 9C... Only futaba give you that characteristics.

Now, after 12Z, you may also play with gyro gain on pots and trim tabs while flying.

Bearing issues?... Wow... A lot of pressure you may be applying with thumbs...

Thanks God, I learned to operate, remote control transmitter with both thumb and index finger... Middle finger on throttle hold... Forces applied to sticks? Zero...

Using pots to control hover throttle and pitch can also be had on the RadioMaster TX16S. It also has hall effect gimbals and color screen (touch screen hardware, but not yet supported in software). Price ~ $150. A downside is OpenTx programming is very different from Futaba or JR. Plus side it has a built-in Multi-Protocol Module that talks DSM, DSM2, DSMX, Futaba SFHSS, FrSky and many more. The downside of that is it isn't supported by any of those manufacturers.Phil Heavin

Love my TX16S, so many possibilities on that radio. Only know the basics of it I’m sure but enjoying it very much for a 3rd of a cost compared to other radios out there.

I'll have to check out the RadioMaster. I like the flexibility and expandability of open TX programming. However, for helicopters I do prefer the stability of a traditional firmware. I will say that we do have a lot of options these days for radios!

As an enthusiast of radio control with helicopters, with dedication and effort, I have several flying machines on my place.

All this machines works with my futaba 12z and differents receivers.

So, with only one TX, I fly all my gadgets. As a second transmitter I have a futaba 7C fasst, with handle at least, three of them. This is my "just in case of" TX.

Futaba 12z, As a modular equipment, I also fly FM/PCM, and
With a spektrum module, my futaba 12Z handle also DSM2 receiver without problem with futaba transmitter.

For my flight Sim, I have a dedicate control for that particular porpuose.

So, Why should I look for other TX brand?

I don't get it.

Why should I mess with JETI, for example, is my futaba 12Z do all what I want?

I now understand why my friend and neighbor, is on a divorce...
