Cxl'd my order.
The 8FG doesn't support multiple protocols, nor does it have a built in S.Bus programmer, telemetry, or vibration alerts. Plus the new box has a bigger screen, soft grips on the side/back, better switch spacing on the top, and a headphone jack for getting your alerts directly to an ear bud.
So it's not exactly "just" an 8FG in a new box, but it is built on the tried and true platform of the 8FG.
