I just got my DX-8, version 1.04, no issues so far, range check ok, really loving it. They mangaged to make the menus just as simple to use as on the DX-7, but with way more possibilities. Since I travel a lot, I also love the small international charger. The only thing I miss is when you're in the servo setup menu, servo reverse, you don't see the bar graph of the servos like on the DX-7, where you could see which channel is normal and which is reversed at a glance. Now you have to scroll through, channel by channel. A minor inconvenience, but still... Anybody else miss this DX-7 screen? Oh yeah, one more thing, does anybody know how to erase points on the throttle curve or pitch curve? If you want a straight line or v-curve (like a 100%-80%-100% throttle curve), 5 points are 2 too many.

servo reversing is a pain but there is the added safety feature (as of the latest firmware) of a warning before reversing the throttle channel. That's a good feature! A screen showing the state of all the channel "NOR" or "REV" would be a good idea. Could put that on the requested features request stack. Not sure about how to "INH" the additional points on the throttle curve, not that big of a deal to move those into proper position though

No, you can't. I tried that already, it used to work on the DX-7. Where can I find the "requested features request stack"?

This did work when they released the 1.00 firmware but it was disabled after some guys inadvertently reversed the throttle channel - a problem with an armed big electric.

I totally miss servo reverse screen in DX7. I hate the DX8 servo setup screen and also there is no INH unlike DX7.

Thanks
