DX8 and The Beast UMX




I broke down and bought one. For $430, you get an AR8000 with a satellite RX and the TM**** telemetry box. Mine came with a second AR8000 (w/ sat. RX) which offset the extra cost of the DX8 over the DX7S. Sweet!

Since I haven't held a DX7S in my hands I don't know what actually makes them different. The DX8 appears to have an extra switch or 2 and a backlit screen, which is a huge plus IMO.

Setting up the radio was a breeze. I think that says something, considering this is my first "good" radio.

I plan to maiden the Beast tomorrow if the wind calms down.
