Just glancing over the list of "improvements" has me literally laughing out loud... pretty much everything listed is fixing all the bugs that should've been corrected before they sold the product in the first place... facepalm

Spektrum lost me as a customer several years ago after I bought DSM which was junk, then I bought DSM2 because they claimed to have fixed it... nope still junk, then I bought DSMR with more false claims to have fixed their effed up protocol... while I do agree that each protocol made slight improvements, I just don't understand why they can't do what all the other big dogs are doing with more reliable protocols? Now I see nothing has changed as they continue to make claim after claim of fixing their faulty designs... oh the irony of calling this "SMART Technology"... shrug

Not saying that Spektrum can't win me back as a customer, but not really seeing anything here that is worth the risk to me just yet... with GraupnerUSA closing, I am on the hunt for a suitable system to replace my X-8E, no idea who it will be and yes I am considering Spektrum, but they just aren't very high on my list of contenders right now

I agree those are some really nice suggestions, perhaps I'm in the "Goldilocks Syndrome" where I have already found the perfect system (for me) but feel pressured to replace it just to ensure that I have proper support, where Spektrum shines when it comes to product support, but my confidence in their quality just isn't there yet as already demonstrated in the OP. I'm not ready to drop $600 on a comparable system either

I had not the best experience from using their air transmitters long time ago (RTF tx and DX8); hopefully, they improved the QC.
