When I first flew the DX8, before learning the difference, I didn't like my timer shutting off in the lower 1/4 or so range of stick travel since I spend a lot of time inverted. I'd kill my battery well before the timer did go off or even alert me at the 1 min to go mark and that's with any of my CP helis, not just the 130 X.
It works good for what it is. You can turn it on or off by holding down the CLEAR button and you can set the stick position where it will start/stop the timer.
I also have a backlight kit that I like a lot. But I've had the radio for several years now. I wouldn't mind stepping up to something g newer now but it's got to have a backlight.
