Announced last Thursday morning, this radio took me by surprise. I figured they killed off the DX7, and now it was a DX5e, DX6i, and DX8 show now. But Horizon had other plans.
This radio has all the fixin's. 20 model memory (expandable with the included SD card), telemetry, lipo-compatibility, and all the programming your heart desires. This is the ultimate refresh of the venerable DX7 radio system, and you've not got long to wait until you can get your hands on one. It's due out in early June for the awesome price tag of $299.99. For what you're getting, this is a fantastic price.
No word yet on a transmitter-only option, but I'm sure that will come in time. The DX8 full-package was out for eight months before they shipped a transmitter-only, so if you're in the market for a new radio, don't wait for the transmitter-only version. When this DX7 ships, stop in and pick one up.
And if you'd like to pre-order one, stop in and let us know!
