DX8: The worlds most advanced 8-channel radio
The DX8 offers pilots control and comfort like no other 8 channel radio, built from the ground up for ease of use and optimize ergonomics. Spektrum AirWare software offers the ability to monitor crucial on board components with telemetry. Not to mention the freedom and endless expansion of the integrated SD card slot.
The Spektrum DX8 has truly raised the bar.
All New Spektrum AirWare™ Software. Remarkably Easy to Use.
The DX8's powerful new Spektrum AirWare software was developed exclusively by Spektrum from the ground up. This software includes all the programming functions an expert pilot could want, but you don't have to be an expert to use them. The DX8's intuitive Simple Scroll™ interface lets you "roll and click" your way between menus with ease. And all the information is presented in crisp, clear detail on a big, backlit LCD screen.
Enhanced Wing Type Programming
When selecting a wing type for an airplane, Spektrum AirWare graphically depicts the type you've chosen and will automatically configure the necessary mixes for the pilot. This saves time and reduces the chances for error when programming complex control surface configurations.
Active Gyro and Governor Trim
Fine tune rotor speed and gyro gain while in flight using trim switches you assign.
When programming the cyclic and pitch mixing for a helicopter, it is possible for the sum of the two mixing values to exceed the mechanical travel limits of the servos. This can cause them to be overdriven into a locked position. Spektrum AirWare's Electronic E-Ring prevents this by automatically limiting servo travel if the sum of the cyclic and pitch values exceeds servo limits.
Built-In Telemetry. Fly Smarter with Vital Model Feedback.
The DX8's built-in telemetry feature gives you vital, real-time information about what's happening with your model in flight; information that can prevent crashes and maximize performance. The telemetry data appears in an easy-to-read format on the large backlit LCD screen so you can reference it at a glance. You can also have the DX8 alert you with an audio or vibe alarm whenever any telemetry values exceed limits you define.
