Howdy, going to be testing some new aerial mapping drones this summer and will be putting $1000+ cameras into the bellies of these beasts. I've used a Turnigy 9x the last couple years with my little foamies, but it doesn't give me a sense of confidence. I also do not want to be modifying radios. I have a budget around $700 and so far am considering:
1. Futaba 14SG
2. Spectrum DX8
I would like a radio that I can use to eventually experiment with FPV, but that is not the chore this summer. If money is not an issue, is there any reason that I would not choose the Futaba over the Spectrum? Seems there would be room to grow with the Futaba. Any other choices that I am missing?
