yep, I can reproduce it at will - posted this at RCU also --

Ok, I think I got it - here's what I did to reproduce it.

- Setup #1 as a heli, call it Heli1
- power cycle radio
- Select a any slot configured for heli,
- go to the gyro menu, Change it from Inhibit to On. Then select "Ch." in this menu and scroll through all the options but select Gear.
- Go back to the Main Menu. The model is now on #01.

Whatever was in #01 is gone.

Even simpler

- go to any heli slot other than #01.
- Go to the gyro menu
- Go to the "Ch:" selection, run through all the options, choose Gear
- Go back to the main screen, it's now model #01

This is John Adams from Spektrum. In the next few days we will be offering a SD card update that corrects this issue. You will need to go to the Spektrum website and follow the instructions on updating your firmware.

Thank you for taking the time to come here and update us on the status.

Thinking about it this particular issue isn't a big deal since I wouldn't normally want to change which channel the gyro gain is on anyway. It's really is of little consequence once you know not to hit that menu option.

Seems this radio was released a little too soon. Online registration does not even recognize a DX-8 as a valid radio.

Well I thought it was a batch programming problem and I had escaped.

Wrong, it does that on mine as well.

Mr Adams thanks for coming in on this thread, is there an explanation as to why this is happening? I don't mind I realise that all new products need a bit of time to bed in, but I am surprised your testers didn't find this one.
Good luck

What are the other glitches besides the model memory? Who tested these radios out before they hit production? I would have figured that the pro team pilots would have seen this.

I appreciate that Spekrum stepped up and validated that there's an issue. Very much looking forward to the fix because I just hate having an expensive brick sitting on the bench.

Once again, glad to be a Vbar owner. Never had to enter the Gyro menu. All gyro settings are made through the software interface.

Man this 450 flies sweet at 11ms. With the Vbar it flies almost exactly like its on a simulator. It is unreal

Now I am worried about my radio. It should be here tomorrow.
You'll just have more time on your hands to get that Velocity so it stays together for more than a couple of flights.

The problem occurs if you try to select anything else, i.e select the gear channel, change it to some other channel then say change it back to gear, you have to select it to get it to happen.

try it it would be interesting to see if you are one of the lucky ones.
Good luck

To complete this thread Spektrum has released the v1.02 update and this has fixed the "copy-to-mode-1 in gyro CH: selection" problem. Very easy to upate.

Step 0. Register DX8 at https://community.spektrumrc.com
Step 1. Download update file to CF card
Step 2. Insert card into DX8
Step 3. Turn on DX8, watch it update.
