I have a 10C and the only advantage that I can see over the 8 is the modular design that lets you use older 72 stuff or even spektrum with the appropriate modual. But I no longer see that they are selling the modular 2.4g 10C so that puts a damper on that. If I was shopping for a new tx I would give my nod to the 8, after all it has identical channels and almost the same features, at a cheaper price.

I love my 10C and it's modular design. I like that I can fly all the BnF stuff! My only complaints are that it is horribly balanced and the 2.4g antenna hangs out the back.

Oh yeah, lack of 3-position switches. That would be the one thing I would change to the 8c for, more 3 position switches. I always though that was a feature put on by futaba to make the buyer choose between the radio. You want more 3-position switches, buy a more $ radio. Now, you can get a radio with all 3-position switches for a cheaprt price!
