Pulled the trigger on a DX8 - Bye Bye DX6i

Pulled the trigger on a DX8 tonight after much research. I did not think I was going to stay with Spektrum with all the brownout issues. Price, features and a quick reboot/connect time sold me on trying this once again.

The DX6i has a crappy reboot/reconnect time if you brownout. 4-5 seconds is just to much if you want to keep that plane in one piece. There were other issues as well. Elevons for one. Would I ever recommend a DX6I for a new person getting in the sport? FLAT OUT NO. NO WAY. DON'T DO IT.

Here is a vid that kinda covers my issues.Not my vid!
