Re: DX7 or DX7s ?

The DX7 is recently discontinued so if you are buying new, you may be out of luck.

The 7S is a completely new radio and only shares the name. Like the DX8 on which it's based, it's has Spektrum's Airware programming. It also adds many features that don't exist on the 7 like DSMX, SD card slot (for backups and software upgrades), and telemetry. You can also download setups for planes and helis from the Spektrum website.

IMHO, it's a better radio overall.
