Anyway thankyou for the suggestion. I was questioning because I thought I read a while back with some issues with the DX2 with glitches and that is the reason they redid the DX2.0. Thanks
That was my recollection too - I think they may also have helped solve some "glitching" type issues (actually they were related to antenna wire proximity to some electrical circuits). So the DX2.0 is a little better, but not sure it's worth 50%+ more.
PS in general, one way I test product quality : call tech service with questions. The people you can actually get hold of (not sales, but service or cust support) are the ones you want to deal with. They tend to have better stuff, and if there are issues, they work with you. I've had good experience with JR (Spektrum, Horizon and JR are related companies) as well as Novak, for instance. I would have no qualms buying a JR product.
