Yes, I think that marketing and design may have two different time frames.

Does Anyone Know if 11X is capable of 11ms frame rate?
Im in such a bind right now
I need a new radio like right now and dishing out $700 Bills on 11x is alot $429 Seems nice for dx8,9503 i think has a great price for 9 Channel Radio and Futaba as much as i would love to have the new 8 channel,receivers would kill me in price plus NO BNF with Parkzone and Eflite
Fig Jam Honestly how did that DX8 Feel?Anything like DX6i?
Is it Balanced somewhat close to center?And most importantid you like it?

Yes I'm a dealer that how I was able to get my grubby mitts on one for 10 minutes, as far as I'm aware this was the fist time a DX8 was seen in the wild.

The DX8 feels nothing like the DX6i, to be honest it feels more like the 11X (I own one for personal use). I've owned a x9303 and a 9503 and they were/are excellent radio's but the DX8 will be better value for money from what I've seen. The gimbals feel better, the ergonomics are better, better switches, very nicely sculptured case that feels nearly as good as the 11X.

What it lacks is a decent sized LCD, it's small and the fonts are large so not as much Info can be displayed, apart from that it looks like a winner!

Unfortunately not. the top rotary dials are nice as they have ears on them so you can tell by feel where they are positioned and if I remember correctly all but two of the switches are 3 position.

Today I spoke to a Horizon sponsored guy who has flown the DX8. He said that it feels as good or better than his 12x. He also said he would choose the DX8 over the 9503 in a second. He thinks the radio will ship in the next few weeks and that if I want one this summer (one of the initial shipments) I need to put a deposit on one now. Otherwise they'll probably sell out and I'll probably need to wait for Christmas.

I Imagine data is where it connects to the RX's bnd/dat port.

I'm more curious about x-bus
