The one thing I appreciate of the DX8 over the 9503 is the fact that it includes an SD-card option. I know you can sync the 9503 with your PC, but the versatility of removable/swappable storage is a big deal for something in this
price range.

You peoples and the looks... When are you going to be looking at it while flying?

(And this is coming from a designer by trade. )

He, he I'm actually going to try that.....I just want to make sure that my current receivers will work on a European radio - Although I don't see why they wouldn't, even if the Transmitter is transmitting at a lower wattage..


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJmnN...layer_embedded

Can't understand a word of it, but it does show some of the features. One thing I did get out of it is that the switch banks are modular and that you can have different modules that you can swap out with different type of aircraft - neat.

o Foldable aerial
o Designed specifically as a tray radio
o Sticks are designed to optimize grip in a tray configuration
o Angle of switch modules adjustable
o Interchangeable modules to adapt the radio to specific applications
o Large backlit display
o Pockets left and right to store DS cards and small tools
o Fully integrated arm system for the radio harness
o Audio and vibration alarm
o Real time telemetry
o SD card interface for unlimited model memory and transfer of data
o Mode 1 to Mode 4
o Four languages; English, German, French and Spanish
o Integrated stick switches
o Software for three model types: acrobat, glider and heli
o Internal model memories
o Stop watches
o Timer
o 2048 step resolution
o Integrated LiPo
o Switch allocation
o Mixers with graphic curve

Another view of the 8..



•real-time telemetry provides onboard receiver battery
voltage (or flight pack) and RF (flight log) information
• antenna fades
• frame losses Flight Log
• hold (failsafe)
• SD/MMC card capability allows data transfer and
software upgrades
• 30 model memory
• larger LCD screen
• electronic E-ring
• includes 8-channel receiver with telemetry capabilities
• throttle activated timer setting
• language selectable
• telemetry warning (audio & vibration)
• integrate RF / data during range check
• mode selectable (mode 1-4)

Cheers,
Steve

Based on the Horizon photos, it is going to be another 4 AA battery radio.

Not in my mind. Works great in my DX6i. Looking forward to it, and unlimited model memory, telemetry, and throttle controlled timer.
