My XG8 arrived today. The radio has a great feel to it. The radio is easy to hold on to as you can wrap your fingers around the sides easily, its done by a deeply recessed back panel. Gimbals are angled out a bit which helps.
The battery has a LiFe battery installed with the charger built into the radio. The walwart is basically a 9v power supply.
The only down side I have right off the bat is the darn power light is one of those bright blue led types. Bright enough to poke your eye out. But I shouldn't be looking at the radio when I'm flying should I.....
I'll play with the programming tonight when I get home.
Gooder review Mr. Thorne !!
Oh, and should be easier to sEE if you've left the XG8 turned oN !
