All up to you. Some don't like the looks or the feel of the 12. Some like the lower cost of the 8. Both will do far more than most pilots want or need.

For the price I'd go with the newer one the 8FGH. One of the nice things about the 8 is that it balances off a neck strap without needing a balancer, has 14 channels, and most of the advanced programming features.

Ive got both, if the 12 fg had a backlit screen it would be the winner.
Better build feel and the programming is easier due to the large screen on the 12fg, just my opinion, but for the price the 8fg does feel good and does just about the same, the 12 is overpriced.

nine channels
I have toys that need nine channels, so I have a 12FG. Before that I had a 9C.

With 14 channels, the 8FG can handle the 9 channel toys just fine.

I've just gone from the 10 to the 8FG. If I had a bit more money I think I would have liked a larger screen and better "feel". Having said that I'm sure the 8FG will do more than I ever need.
