Using a combination of vertical and horizontal arrays, the diversity antenna provides superb protection against polarisation blind spots, ensuring your receiver always “sees” the signal.
Programmable Voice Alerts
The DX8 lets you keep tabs on important functions without ever taking your eyes off what you’re flying. You can program voice alerts to call out what flight mode you’ve chosen or report telemetry information on demand. If an alarm goes off, you won’t have to look at the transmitter display to see what’s happening. The DX8 will tell you.
Wireless Trainer Link
The wireless trainer link gives instructors the option to wirelessly ''buddy box'' with another DSMX® transmitter. Once bound to another transmitter, ModelMatch™ technology will allow the DX8 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.
Multirotor camera drone pilots can use the wireless trainer link to assign gimbal and rudder functions to a ‘camera man’ transmitter. This will allow the pilot to focus on avoiding obstacles and maintaining visual contact with the aircraft while the camera man lines up the shot.
The enormous capacity of the DX8's on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card. The model memory menu is easier to navigate too. Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear. You won't have to scroll through empty slots or move models around if one is deleted.
Because the DX8 uses the same AirWare™ software as many other Spektrum transmitters, you can share model setups across platforms with almost any Spektrum pilot.
Fly Smarter with Built-In Telemetry
The built-in telemetry feature gives you real-time information on things like your model's battery voltage, signal quality, engine or motor temperature, airspeed, altitude and more.*
Using the voice alert system, you can program the DX8 to tell you when specific telemetry values reach or exceed limits you define. You can also have it call out a sequence of telemetry values on demand with the flip of a switch. If you want to review telemetry after a flight, the DX8 can be set up to record the data to its SD card.
*Requires a Spektrum telemetry module and telemetry sensors, sold separately.
