      Default Spektrum DX7 Discontinued?

      I have an old school DSM2 Spektrum DX7 - the one that shared the case design with the JR Tx. It doesn't seem like it can be used with my Blade 230S - at least not the rescue function anyway.

      I have been thinking about purchasing a new Spektrum radio to use with Blade BNF models. But the newer DX7 has been discontinued. So choices now seem to be the DX6 or the DX8.

      There is still a DX7 available here:

      Anyone know why the DX7 was discontinued?

      Is the DX6 a better choice anyway?

      Ya, Horizon Hobbies basically replaced it with the DX8 G2 and updated the DX6. Both are much more capable than the good old DX7 (which I still have as a backup/trainer to my DX18 G1). You might be ok with just 6 channels but if you are going to get into fpv with autopilots and maybe pan/tilt cameras you should go for at least 8 channels imho.

      If your good old DX7 is still in good condition and does all you need then I think that ModelFlight will still do the dsmx conversion for ~$75. This should then cover you for both dsm2/dsmx.

      Cheers.
