The 8fg is also a faster radio which is one reason it is so common among the heli guys. One of the top Heli pilots in the world (nick maxwell) and has won many major competitions with it. Just some of the various reasons I wouldn't trade the 8fg for anything.
There are only two things I don't like about my 8FG: it's too light and the sides/back are not rubberized. Certainly not enough to make me want a different radio though.
I don't know about you, but if someone offered to trade an 18MZ for my 8FG, I would do it.
