Yeah, if you can swing it, I'd also go for the DX7s transmitter. It is another $100 or so, but if you keep flying for a few years, the DX7s radio will serve you very well.

Add to that, the DX7s had a four cell Nih battery, along with a charger. If my fading memory is correct, the DX6i transmitter uses alkaline batteries. On the DX8, setting up crow and reflex is a simple process. Don't know about the DX6i though, no one in my RC club has mentioned it. A few of my club members have purchased the DX6i transmitter over the years. Many of them have since upgraded to the DX7, DX8 or even the new DX9 units.

Retired and the days are just too short, busier than ever!
