Now if someone would make it downward compatible I'd be in hog heaven.

99 degrees F here with winds around 15 MPH. I just put in two very pleasant flights with this before it was just too hot to be in the sun. I'm glad it has Beginner Mode. The first flight was in Experienced Mode and difficult to achieve level flight.

My bad...meant with safe OFF...no need to re-read. I have probably flown my shop demo close to 100 times now and still going strong. Last night...a buddy of mine (with least restrictive mode) was flying inverted circuits about four feet off the ground...FANTASTIC BIRD!

My grandson flew the AeroScout today without a problem. I wirelessly linked my DX8 g2 and DX8 g1 with the 2 being the master.
I learned that the custom settings (motor off/on and beginner, intermediate expert switch settings) don’t work on the slave unit.
The plane is so docile I was able to just let him solo as I shut off the slave radio

I took the Scout out of for it's maiden. Great flying little plane!! I wirelessly linked the included DXe and my DX6. My father-in-law hasn't flown in 16 years and I got him not only flying but he also landed the AeroScout. I think it made his day!

My hobby shop only had RTF birds but the owner was willing to make it a BNF. Can’t say enough good stuff about HobbyTown St Charles.

Noob question - if I buy one of these in the BNF version, can it be (relatively) easily bound to work with a Spektrum DX8G2, with all the AS3X and SAFE functionality enabled?

Yes, can be easily bound to a DX8G2 and have AS3X and Safe enabled... I will be getting one as well and bind it to my DX6G2 and this will by my second Hobby Zone plane with this receiver and it is very easy to bind to another radio..

Have set up FPV in my AeroScout and added a Tarot OSD with it. The OSD is a work in progress and the antenna is a bit weak. This is DVR recording off my FatSharks.
