Well, every radio system in each "class" has their strenghts and weaknesses.
I like comparison if its fact based.
If the product You love have a lot of strenghts you can bet your a$$ it also has weaknesses.
Everyone will evaluate and make their own desicions on what is most important to them based on ones needs.

Also this is not a Xbrand/model vs. Ybrand/model thread.

Im sure we will se lots of DX8/DX10 vs XXX threads soon!

Thats why its good that people like Andy are out here on the forums providing facts. (in the middle of all the fiction!)

I see a lot of discussion on the dx-8. Where are we on the dx10? My interest is in sailplanes and the comment by Andy that the 10 version is the glider tranny has me looking that direction. Google finds mostly speculation, not clear it will be sold here (USA).

Any links to a dx10 manual?

Thanks,

Jim

Andy,

I have a DX8 on order and paid for with my LHS, and I wanted to know if I copy all my numbers from my DX7 and put them in the DX8 will every thing work the same or will I need to do a fresh setup on the DX8?

Thanks
Mike

Jim,

We will be silent on the details until it comes out, just like we did with the DX8. The best place for info will be the German Horizon and Spektrum sites.

Mike,

Yes. That's how my son copied everything out of my DX7. Even the trim clicks will transfer over if you don't change the trim step size (they are very close).

Its a problem with the stock system on the website, it's just saying that all the stock that has come in or that is going to has been fulfilled with all the pre-orders, so therefore there is no more stock to buy till the end of sept. As you say, and as i have heard through no announcements that it is delayed, they are still on track.

So there is some hope for a DX8 arriving soon! Will you be at the Horizon live cast tonight? We can prod Jim Booker for some more information!

No, i beleive it reduces power so you make a slow decent after 3 hits. Will ask Jim later as he will have them on. It bascially an IR receiver/tx in one, which may cause issues for planes, if you wanna talk about it, I have set up a thread here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1301711
