Problem solved. I carried it and my TX back to the HS where it was bought and they checked it out. They didn't have any luck either. We bound a replacement to the radio and everything worked so it...

I might do that. That's a pretty good idea..... I have 2 DX-7s and one DX-6i. I bought one of the 7's new, one off of Ebay, and the DX-6i came from a friend who got out of the hobby. My only...

Hey........ Don't get me wrong. If I could cut the heads of of my three radios and make enough to buy a DX-8, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Actually, I know that I could, but that would probably require...

I've played around with this some more and am still getting nothing. The manual states that it is the GEAR switch that operates the flaps. Looking at the radio's (DX-7) display showing each channels...

Howabout an option that, while I've only skimmed over this thread, have not seen. I propose this because I can grasp the need not to 'overkill' your TX needs. Buy a USED DX-7. I bought a new one when...

Wildflyer is right. The best thing that you can do is replace with an actual replacement. Too many things can go wrong and you'll end up spending way more than the 5 or 6 bucks you'd save...

A bit late here, but why not??? I'd recommend the PZ Trojan/T28. It was the first plane that I had any success with 4 years ago. Yea, I crashed it but it was always worth the rebuild. It goes with me...

Love mine. My favorite thing to do with it is to make slow, easy passes down the runway about head high. Then, throttle up, circle around and do it again. Looks really awesome.

Would I be correct in assuming that this stuff comes from Hong Kong or some other Asian country? I just placed an order and didn't pay much attention to the ship time. Only to the amount of $19.95.
