how long do you guys use your tx before replacing it.
Me too. Had a Hitec Optic 6...I use mine until it crashes an airplane then i buy another brand:biggrin:
But seriously I really do that:banghead:
...as you smile and wave at the one flying away for good!I made the switch to the A9 and never looked back.
lol you don't want to get in a brand war do you? I do own a spektrum radio don't get me wrong, it's an awesome radio. It does a great job for my foamies.Me too. Had a Hitec Optic 6...

I have just upgraded to a JR 9503 from the DX7. Way more features than you'll use but ergonomically the same case, just better materials used. Took a while to get used to the programming, but so far a happy camper. It works with all the Rx's I have accumulated over the years, even the Hobby King Orange. The DX7 is still in use as the new slave radio for training. As for it's life span, IDK it's been problem free for the same amount of time you've had yours.
You'll like the JR.
Just checked out that SD10g . That looks like a good tx too.Flew Futaba/Hitec for years when I was younger. Bought an OLD JR 9 channel and used it for a while, worked great... bought a 4-Star and Futaba 4 channel when I got back into the hobby, quickly purchased a 72mhz JR9303 right after and used it for a long time (still do). Never had issues with those radios, except when using GWS and Berg receivers on the 9303.
Then I bought a 2.4ghz 9303 and immediately lost three planes to it (with two different receivers), so it was sold quickly. Later bought a DX7, no issues except a momentary loss of control with an orange receiver.
Now I have an Airtronics SD10G for anything larger than my mid-range electrics. So far it's worked well...
I understand, we haven't had any issues at our club and I believe there are 7 or 8 of us using the a9. I love my radio and will continue to use it until it gives me trouble. I wonder how many people actually have locks or just dumb thumbs as I know they get the best of us sometimes. :thumbsup:I was going to buy a Aurora 9 but I keep reading about people losing planes. :yikes:

i had a problem with my 11X.I dare you to find anyone who has had a problem with jr 11x since it has come out. I think you will find they are non existent. It is a reliable and robust radio.
