DX8 Notice

Please refer to the following:

It was brought to my attention there have been some problems with the upgrade to V2.05 for the SD upgradeable Spektrum DX radios.


Please note that Spektrum updated the notes in the attachment on August 28/2012.
If you want to go back to V2.04, do the following:
Format your SD Card, log into SPEKTRUM, download V2.04, send to your SD Card,
go to Transfer SD card on your DX8, Insert SD card, follow the on-screen prompts, V2.04 will now be back in your DX8.


Please note the following information I received from the Technical support personnel at Horizon:

The newest version of the DX8 will affect your current trim levels. The latest upgrade - 2.05 affects all Radios DX7s - DX8 & DX18 in a process to make them all compatible so some changes in how we program may be necessary depending on how much you rely on the programming to setup your Airplane and which of the three Radios you own.

The sub trim / end point adjust AFFECTING ALL CHANNELS is a known issue in V 2.05 and if it is an issue in your system you can reinstall V 2.04 and await the fix to V 2.05. The issue is only for reversed channels with non-zero subtrims or asymmetric travel ranges. If you don't use sub-trim and have equal throws on the reversed channels, you will be fine.

If you can wait a few weeks, we are working on an update which will make the update smoother for you.

If you don't have channels in an aircraft meeting those requirements, then you won't run into any problems.

This is noted on SpektrumRC.com under the download. When using the NiMh Battery the Light will not shut off. Please monitor your voltage when charging the NiMh Battery.
