Evan D.

We all have different ways of setting up our radios. I have been flying Futaba 9C Super for years for full house gliders and I don't use the sliders.

What is it that you do on the sliders?

There are rumors that there will be sailplane programming for the DX8.
Also eflite looks to have new glider coming out.

They introduced the Mystique 3M full house e-glider last year.

Any info on the nature of this new glider?

This is the response I received from Horizon after asking about the glider software:

Harry, I have checked with the Spektrum team and we will be bringing out
an update to the DX8 for glider programming. The full details are not
completely worked out yet as far as when it will be released, but they
did confirm that there will be a small charge for the extra programming.
They did not give an exact price but hinted around $30. As soon as they
are ready to bring this out there will be plenty of marketing materials
and announcements that should answer all the specifics about this new
add on. Keep and eye out and you are welcome to contact me anytime for
updates. Thank you for asking the question and hope you have a great
weekend.


Thank You,
