DX8 & AR6100 - problems resolved?

My trusty old Futaba 9CAP with the Spektrum module in it is nearing replacement. I am looking at the DX8, but I am concerned about the reports of holds / crashes with the AR6100 receiver / DX8 combo.

I know about the service bulletin, but I am wondering if folks have had experience with this combo after the firmware update fix?

I have a couple planes with AR6100s in them, so I don't want to buy a radio that isn't going to work well with them...

I have AR6100's in several of my older planes with no issues. The point of the update was to correct the problem with older receivers, which it did quite well.

Excellent, thanks.

I'll double check the radio at the store to make sure the product code isn't in the recall list.

Well, I've had the DX8 for two weeks and put in many flights on my two aircraft with 6100s. Completely solid, no issues.
