Upgrading from a limited 6-channel radio to a much more versatile 8-channel radio with computer system performance on a {budget|a budget plan|a spending plan} doesn’t mean you need to opt for less than the best. The Spektrum™ DX8e gives you the unbeatable action of DSMX® innovation, the simplicity of Spektrum AirWare™ firmware in addition to numerous other functions you won’t find on other “budget” radios.

Your growing skills are worthy of a transmitter than can keep up. The DX8e comes geared up with the shows you require, no matter what you fly. And because it’s based on the same Spektrum AirWare firmware utilized in most other Spektrum transmitters, you can share model setups with just about any Spektrum user you meet.

With the versatility 8-channels delivers, it’s interesting to consider all the alternatives numerous modern airplane can accept. Aircraft with flaps, pulls back and SAFE® choose can now all be flown to their complete potential. With its additional channels at the ready, you can think about adding lights to a switch or a simulated bomb drop alternative. Try out exactly what additional flight modes and mixes can offer, play with gain settings on the AS3X® system—all without compromising exceptional functions you delight in like flaps, pulls back or dual-ailerons and elevators.

Built-In Telemetry
The integrated telemetry feature can offer you real-time info on things like battery voltage, signal quality, motor temperature and more.* You can also configure alerts that let you understand when specific telemetry values reach or surpass limits you define.
*Requires telemetry sensing units and a telemetry-enabled receiver.

Wireless Trainer Link
The wireless trainer link gives instructors the alternative to wirelessly ''friend box'' with another DSMX/DSM2® transmitter. Once bound to another transmitter, ModelMatch™ innovation will enable the DX8e to re-link without needing to go through the bind process again.

• Wirelessly 'friend box' with another DSMX®/DSM2® transmitter when teaching somebody to fly
• Assign gimbal functions to a second 'cam' transmitter when flying a cam drone so you can focus on preventing challenges and maintaining visual contact while someone else lines up the shot
• Relate to specially-equipped Spektrum FPV headsets to wirelessly control head tracking and remotely change cam video frequencies
• Link to the Spektrum Wireless Simulator Dongle (SPMWS1000) and practice flying with your favorite simulators

Patent-Pending Gimbal Design with Spring Setup Change
The DX8e’s patent-pending gimbal style lets you change gimbal spring setups merely by moving a slider switch on the back of the transmitter. No tools are needed. Just select the spring setup that matches the mode you are using and model type you are flying. That’s it.

Typical Throttle for Modes 2 and 4 (Air, Heli and Sailplane Model Types)
Spring-Centered Throttle for Modes 2 and 4 (Multirotor Model Type)
Spring-Centered Throttle for Modes 1 and 3 (Multirotor Model Type)
Typical Throttle for Modes 1 and 3 (Air, Heli and Sailplane Model Types)

The slider switch is safeguarded by a hinged cover and slider-lock that avoids you from altering spring setups accidentally.

Front-Access Gimbal Adjustment
Access to stress, cog and travel changes for each gimbal is conveniently through the front—no disassembly needed. There’s nothing to it. Even mode conversion changes are available. To develop the best feel, simply take off the rubber access cover and make an easy change.

250+ Model Memory
The massive capacity of the DX8e’s on-board memory indicates you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle designs between transmitter memory and your SD card. The model memory menu is easy to browse too. Just memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear. You {won't|will not} need to scroll through empty slots or move designs around if one is deleted.
