I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this https://www.t9hobbysport.com/taranis-q-x7-2.4ghz-transmitter will provide you with all the flexibility if you are willing to learn the programming.
FARR too complicated.You can get a futaba 8FG for cheap money second hand. Ive had one for 5 years, never missed a beat, 1000s of hrs flying, dropping on the deck, simple to program and totally reliable RF link.
Been using, first a FF9 with a Hitec module, and for the past three or four years, a Hitec Aurora. Does exactly what it says on the tin, never had the slightest glitch. I'm sold on them. Simple to use software (instruction book says "do not read this book unless you are bored, just refer to it if you get stuck" which is exactly what most of us do anyway.
As Above, I too have been using my FF9 for years but with the Spextrum conversion 2.4 module, & that too has been nothing but perfect dms2 & dmsx rxs used..
I would propose futaba 14SG or hitec aurora 9xI fly with a Jeti system and love it, but that is a different level.Spectrum is another option, but I dont go there, But if you do go DSM2. Don't get sucked into an old dsm or dsmx as they are being superseded due to interpretation of legislation.
Can you still get a hitec module for the FF9? Ta,
Well I think I will take the plunge and go 2.4GHz.Thinking of Hitec Aurora 9, seen loads of stuff on forums saying how good and Hitec do go support.Tad
Thanks I am in discussion with Stan on the kit and will ask about the battery.Is the HPP 22 PC interface a must have or just nice to have, can one program a model setting on a PC then download it or is the PC just sorting model memories?Also apart from to extra channels and twin aerial is there any benefit fro going for the Optima 9 over the Optima 7?Tad
