Sorry if I raise an recurring topic, but I'm about to buy a new radio and I got stuck on the decision between XG8 and the DX8. The features are close but I always used JR stuff so I'm pending to the JR... The issue is that I currently use a module converted JR10X radio and that will mean to replace all receivers too.
One thing that is bothering me currently is the latency of the 10X module combination. It is possible to feel the lag specially during maneuvers like tic tocs and I compared it while flying similar helis with different radios (native 2.4G) from friends so I believe that JR DMSS is better in that aspect but I don't know if it will be noticeable between both options.
Another question that I have is if anybody positively knows if the XG8 will be compatible with the X-Bus stuff that JR is releasing with the XG14 (I intent to use the radio for big planes also).

All your suggestions are very valuable...

Thank you

Marco

The XG 8 lastest firmware download will have JR X-BUS loaded and you will be able to use the JR X-Bus receiver.

Hello Flying Helis!!

I ended up buying the XG8 back them and I did the X-bus update just after it was released!!!
I'm Very Happy with the radio! It has the usual JR quality.

Thank you for your post!
