I was looking to buy a DX8 (very good value from Inwoods) but I have decided to scale back to the DX7 or DX6i (save some money and upgrade as I need it).

Are there any differences I should be aware of from each model other than the number of channels? For which I do not need as I will have (when Marty gets back) a Disco ST and a WildThing (when I finish building it Shocked )

Amused by the costs on Fleabay of the DX6i which are going for more than the new price at Inwoods (£67 delivered)

I started with the DX6 about three years ago, I thought the memory for ten models would be ooddles! But Tim had other ideas! lol, I now have the DX7 which has a twenty model memory.
TBH, I think the DX 7 is a bit more complicated to set up the mixes with, and I was quite happy with my DX6, and it's still in the club somewhere.
The only reason I upgraded was someone was going from the DX7 to the DX8 and offered me the DX7 at a price I couldn't refuse.
I would say the DX6 would be fine to start with and at the moment I suspect the even the DX6 will have more features than you will need.
save you money for more batteries! lol

PS, I should be home Friday night, fingers crossed

Ha ha...... Been watching a Thunder Tiger ehawk on Ebay, went for £140 plus postage, they are only 80 odd quid new! Laughing

Had the same dilemma two years ago, but went for the dx7 for the extra model memory!
Personal opinion if you are being pulled into sloping though would be the dx6i. You won't need all the features on the dx7, (only need a few channels) and as Marty says, spend your savings elsewhere!

Incidentally, a nice touch on the dx6i is a dedicated engine cut off button for IC engines, pain in the bottom to programme on the dx7!
