Default Help Needed

I purchased and built a Stevens areo model and planned on using my mini Vapor transmitter. Kit has a Parkzone motor and brick.

Transmitter binded ok but the elevator servo is reversed. I can cut and replace the control horn to the top of the elevator to correct this but I would rather use another radio.

Will a Spektrum DX5 or DX6i work with this set up using servo reversing?

The DX5e and DX6i will both allow you to reverse servos at the transmitter.

Welcome, degriz! I think you'll find that most Tx's will have servo reversing, at least if it's not a dedicated kit Tx like you already have. Plus quite a few companies have a bind and fly version of their models available so all you need is the transmitter and somewhere to fly when you want a new/different plane. Hope this helps out some.

Just call me X! (or Gary works, too.)
Another signature landing! Somebody help me find all the pieces...

I would skip the DX5. Almost as limited as the radio you have now. Go for the DX6i.
