This is the Spektrum DX8 Gen 2 Air, Heli, and Multrotor Transmitter Only. The next-generation DX8 takes 8-channel sophistication to new heights with features and capabilities that eclipse those of almost everything else in its class. Voice alerts, 250-model memory, wireless trainer, 4 model types - you get it all and more.
Using a combination of vertical and horizontal arrays, the diversity antenna provides superb protection against polarization blind spots, ensuring your receiver always sees the signal.
Programmable Voice Alerts
The DX8 lets you keep tabs on important functions without ever taking your eyes off what youre flying. You can program voice alerts to call out what flight mode youve chosen or report telemetry information on demand. If an alarm goes off, you wont have to look at the transmitter display to see whats happening. The DX8 will tell you.
Wireless Trainer Link
This exclusive Spetkrum technology gives DX8 users the ability to wirelessly link up with other Spektrum transmitters and specially-equipped Spektrum FPV headsets. Once bound to another transmitter or component, ModelMatch technology will allow the DX8 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.
With Wireless Trainer Link, you could:
The enormous capacity of the DX8's on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card. The model memory menu is easier to navigate too. Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear. You won't have to scroll through empty slots or move models around if one is deleted.
Because the DX8 uses the same AirWare software as many other Spektrum transmitters, you can share model setups across platforms with almost any Spektrum pilot.
Fly Smarter with Built-In Telemetry
The built-in telemetry feature gives you real-time information on things like your model's battery voltage, signal quality, engine or motor temperature, airspeed, altitude and more. (requires telemetry sensors on aircraft - sold separately)
Using the voice alert system, you can program the DX8 to tell you when specific telemetry values reach or exceed limits you define. You can also have it call out a sequence of telemetry values on demand with the flip of a switch. If you want to review telemetry after a flight, the DX8 can be set up to record the data to its SD card.
*Requires a Spektrum telemetry module and telemetry sensors, sold separately.
