Andy has thought about all the ways to do this already - Read between the lines - The datalogging is not happening on the DX8 - pure and simple

I was doing Computer programming some years ago and I understand Andy completely.. Sometimes computers act weird.. and sometimes you need to ho a whole other way to achieve the same thing.
Give the guy a brake. I'm sure he will figure it out at somepoint

+1 ........ but agree with everyone else who say that we would love to have logging at whatever data rate can be achieved. Thanks Andy

PS Not a single bitch for the last few pages ..... this forum is looking up!!

You know what a non-disclosure agreement means?

Not what I said at all. It's just an expensive (my time) feature. I won't say "Never" but I will say, "Don't hold your breath." I'm sure the decision-makers will be influenced by how well the feature is received by the DX10t owners.

How about voice generated real time data like a GPS device. Instead of turn right 500 feet we could have.

Altitude 255 ft

Speed 85 mph

Voltage 3.7 volts per cell

When you land it could say you have reached your destination LOL

There is a "hiccup" you can feel.

Andy
Is this in any way related to the occasional telelmetry warnings that are spurious (?) and not backed up with visible readings?

I guess the dx8 isn't the worlds most advanced 8 channel radio anymore.

imo opinion, all these radios in this price class all have features i want, and not one has them all, I have had my dx8 for like ten months, and even though i had to send it back for gimbal problems (before the recall, so shipping was on my dime) and its under recall for the dsm2 problem, so i gotta send it in again, I'm still happy with my purchase, its always risky getting a product that hasn't been out too long, anyway, on another note, my radio works great with dsm2 receivers, fake ones and real ones, do you guys think i should still send it in?

I would still send it in just to be sure. Just do it when you think or know you won't use it much. Like when it's freezing and snowy.
