Shopper conversation with Joe C. on June 28, 2016

Joe C.
Hello! How may I assist your shopping experience? Did you have a question about the 230 s?
What is the difference between the 299.00 and the 249.00 heli's
Joe C.
the BNF version does not include the controller (transmiter)-- hence it is cheaper
does that make sense?
BNF means "bind and fly"
RTF means ready to fly
Yes. Is the transmitter all programed to fly out of the box or is some computer work have to be done?
Joe C.
the RTF version is ready to fly-- no programming needed
Can that transmitter be used with other airplanes and how does one do that if yes?
Joe C.
you'd need to get the programming cable for the app or PC interface
(for the dxe)
have you seen the dxe?
Joe C.
here it is
we offer it as a budget choice for other aircraft
it only holds one model at a time
but can be reprogrammed with cable and pc or smart phone
I have futaba 8 channel radio now, so do I need this transmitter also?
Joe C.
sorry, nothing we offer is compatible with Futaba transmitters
(just use this included transmitter)
So what you are saying is that this trans. is only for this heli?
Joe C.
it comes pre programmed for this heli
but can be changed for other aircraftr we offer
do you understand?
Will any DX transmitter work with this new Safe tech?
Joe C.
any of the new ones we offer yes
So what is the next step up in DX that will have more than one model?
Joe C.
the dx6i
Thanks I will look it up for cost etc.
