Very Nice Review Mike.

Would you please verify a portion of the countdown timer function for me? On the DX8, with the throttle activate timer mode, if you advance the throttle past 25%, the timer starts its countdown. If you then move the throttle back to idle, the timer stops. When you again advance the throttle, the timer starts timing again and shows the total accumulated time.

This function is very helpful with electric models as it only activates the timer when the motor is actually running and drawing down the battery. In the other Spektrum TXs, once the timer starts, you have to push a button to stop it, and then push a button again to restart, or you just have to let the timer run and hope you haven't fooled around in the pits too long.
