maybe Spektrum will make an update using the SD card for the adjustable servo speed sometime soon, I can't wait to see what all the updates with the SD Card will bring!

Since we have a couple devs sitting around the thread;

Howcome the DX8 and DX10t are so different from eachother? So far, the norm has been to share development/software and just have 2 different cases for the gimbals and switches, but the DX10t with it's 2 extra channels and 3rd programming template seems to put it on the next rung up the feature list, an evolution of the 8103/9303 lineage, where the DX8 is an evolution of the 6102/7202 lineage (with word that the DX8 has 11x gimbals, I'm assuming there is still a hardware relationship?)

so... is there a DX8t in the works? a DX10? would a DX10 be an issue since it would be stepping too much on the 9503s toes? Is JR unhappy with the level of toe-stepping the DX8 does already?

will JR ever be on board with 11ms and telemetry?

I guess, having put all that down, if I had to guess I'd imagine the 9303/9503 replacement is in the pipeline, it's probably got a lot of DX10t inside of it, but it'll likely be JR branded here and abroad, named a 10503 or somesuch.

I of course understand any no-comments, especially the kind of no comments with partial quotes and winky faces. (Me? get you in trouble? Never!)

My understanding is that:

DX6, DX7 and DSX9 all have JR guts/cases with Spektrum RF section/branding.

DX6i, DX8, DX10t are custom Spektrum designs inside and out (maybe using gymbal assemblies that are also used by others).

So JR gets to choose what HW they OEM to Spektrum and whether or not they continue to OEM Spektrum RF into their Tx (X9303, X9503, 11x etc) but not to restrict what new Tx Spektrum chooses to design/release.

"Included AR8000 8ch Hi-Speed Receiver is compatible with the telemetry module"

I'm wondering if the module is or is not included?

Anyone know if the trim tabs and the roller have been redesigned on the DX8 (from the DX6i)? Are they metal or `metalized' plastic?
