This is the Spektrum DX8 Transmitter System MD2. Much like its innovative predecessors, the DX8 G2 provides pilots of all experience levels a suite of features and capabilities that can't be matched by any other 8-channel system. The next step in the evolution of modern transmitter systems, the DX8 G2 outshines nearly everything in its class with its voice alerts, wireless trainer, 250-model memory, and much more.
The abundant capacity of the DX8's onboard memory means that there's a good chance you will never have to juggle models between transmitter memory and an SD card again. The model memory menu was designed to be easy to use as well, only showing memory slots with model settings. This means no more scrolling through empty slots or moving model settings around when you delete one. And because the DX8 uses the same AirWare software as other Spektrum transmitters, you can share model configurations across platforms with virtually any pilot using a Spektrum transmitter.
Taking advantage of a combination of vertical and horizontal antenna arrays, the diversity antenna produces a more robust signal, protecting your receiver from not being able to see the signal in a polarization blind spot.
Wireless Trainer Link
This Spektrum exclusive technology enables the DX8 to wirelessly link up with another Spektrum transmitter and specially-equipped Spektrum FPV headsets. One bound, ModelMatch technology allows the DX8 to re-link without having to go through the binding process again. Using the Wireless Trainer Link, you can wirelessly buddy box with a friend to teach them to fly, assign gimbal functions to a 2nd transmitter to let you focus on flying while someone else lines up the shot, and you can link with specially-equipped FPV headsets to wirelessly control head tracking and remotely change video frequencies on the fly.
Fly Smarter with Built-In Telemetry
The DX8 comes equipped with a built-in telemetry suite that provides real-time information on things such as your model's battery voltage, signal quality, engine or motor temperature, airspeed, altitude and more*. If you want to review the information post-flight, the DX8 can be set up to record the flight data to an SD card.
*Requires a Spektrum telemetry module and sensors, sold separately
Programmable Voice Alerts
Using voice alerts, the DX8 helps you keep tabs on important functions and telemetry without ever having to look away from your aircraft. The DX8 can be programmed to call out the selected flight mode, or report a sequence of telemetry information with the flip of a switch or when the values reach or exceed limits your define. If an alarm goes off, you won't have to look at the display to figure out what's happening; the DX8 will let you know.
The DX8 comes with an impressive list of programming features that rivals that of much more expensive transmitters.
