Looking at Spektrum transmitter I see that you can get only the transmitter do you have to get the receiver with it or can you add this ?  Trying to learn a bit.

You pick your own receiver, there are a few different types to suit different models. ..I'll show you the options tonight.
Does this mean you're bitten and now want your own gear?   .........I'm blaming Timbo and that trip to the Orme.

Just looking and reading up on them found the PDF file for DX5e Users Guide.

That's the baby of the spekky range, read the user guide by all means, it's all part of learning about the gear........There's one here that I want to fit into that little Minty Fox model, we'll do it together if you wish and you can see how it's done.

I wouldnt even think about a DX5E TBH...very limited features, and if you do get hooked on this game, you will outgrow it very very quickly. DX6i as a minimum, NOT DX6.
If you want a Spektrum receiver, I have a couple here which are probably surplus to my immediate requirements, and could let you have one at well below cost price.

 Thanks for that.  Just looking around and trying to get a feel off them.  Small steps before you can run.

Timbo - Isn't the DX6 the parkfly one and the DX6i full range?

Yes, the DX6 is the old parkflyer setup....  It uses DSM and the newer models use DSM2...
 
This prolly also means that the DX6 won't be compatible with the newer receivers....

 Correct.... DSM2 Transmitters ( DX6i and DX7 ) are backward compatible with older DSM rx like the AR5000, "but not the other way around" IE: DX6 Transmitter ( DSM ) will ONLY work with DSM Receivers, NOT DSM2 ...which is all the modern stuff.

As a beginner myself, the only radio i have is a DX5, and as a first radio, I highly recommend it, very crisp response, nice and light. yes you will outgrow soon, (Say's I pricing up a DX6i for Xmas after 6 months of flying) it but at about £30, you cant go very far wrong.
