Question
Buddy boxing DX8 with DX5e

Has anyone tried connecting a Spektrum DX8 with a Spektrum DX5e for budy boxing? Does it work? Can it be made to work? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Can't say definitively but don't see why not. I have used an old FM JR Quattro as a slave to a DX5E, and use my DX5E as a wireless slave to my DX6 without any issues.

Works fine with no problems provided you use the correct buddy lead, with mono plugs (not just some old audio lead that looks vaguely similar ).

Would have to use wired only since neither of those is wireless capable but yes, it works just fine.
