I am new to RC, currently enjoying my first plane, a 3 channel park flyer.
I'm to the point where I can manage most flights without damage and am
looking toward my next airplane. I want it to include ailerons and that
means a new radio. I think 6 channels are plenty and 2.4 GHz seems to be
the way to go. Having ruled out Futaba based on cost, I have narrowed my
choices to either a Spectrum DX-6 or Airtronics RDS-8000. Before I buy, I
have a couple of questions.
I haven't been able to find any information about the compatibility of radio
brands when used as a trainer. Must both transmitters be the same brand or
can you mix them? Which brands are compatible?
Are there any other reasons to choose one radio over the other?
