I am upset at myself for not buying one sooner
Had the first few flights with it today. Not much else to say except what a great radio.

I agree with you Mark. I just switched from a JR 9303 and I couldn't be happier. My only complaint is the volume of the timer. Other than that it's great.

Better late to the party than never showing up at all!

Rich... I am also coming from a 9303. I can see that the volume may be an issue. Possibly an update soon?

Ray... For sure!

I do wonder now that I have played around with the swash interaction menu why JR/Spektrum does not have these features? Or maybe the 11 and 12 do?

It does have them. It is just nowhere near as easy to use. In fact it is a real PITA to do.

The volume isn't such a big deal. I know about how long my flights are any way. Its just funny that I can't hear it over a 600 electric when I fly in close.

I ran DX7 for longest time, no issues. Ran a DX8 had some issues that really put a bad taste in my mouth. Somewhere in between I had a 8FG liked it but hated the spacing. Talked to radio south they said they'd do a switch mod, basically removed my back switches since well I don't need them. The 8FG now I really like, my only real complaint still is the timer volume otherwise I really said to myself should have done this long ago and very happy to be back with Futaba txs' and rxs for sure, I am not ever considering going back to Spektrum at this point that is a guarantee.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I am upset at myself for not buying one sooner too. I am going to pick one up on Friday. I can't believe I wasted so much time with Spektrum stuff. I really thought I was just having bad luck with them, but now I just don't trust their radios after the problems I have been having. I am looking forward to being able to trust my radio equipment again.

I left Futaba 36 meg, for spectrum 2.4. Back to Futaba for me too. Im not going rushing out to sell all my spectrum gear, but it will be slowly replaced with Futaba once more 8FG and fasst are really a nice pleasant change, from spectrum.
