Would you like to be the resident DX8 expert? Are you perhaps just a little bit overwhelmed when it comes to programming? Are mixes something you wish you knew a little more about? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then this book may be just what you’ve been looking for.
Written by Chuck Bassani and illustrated by the team at RC Heli Magazine, “The Ultimate Guide To The Spektrum DX8″ takes you on an in-depth trip into the features, functions, performance, programming, and use of the Spektrum DX8.
Each and every option in the DX8′s ‘System Setup’ and ‘Function List’ menus are broken down in excrutiating detail. The book even goes over functionality not covered by the system’s own “Instruction Manual”. Photographs, figures, and screen images are used extensively througout the book. Installation and setup tips detail how to get the best possible performance out of the DX8′s control and telemetry features.
At the end of the book you’ll find “Step-by-Step” tutorials that walk you through the complete programming of a basic 4-channel electric trainer airplane, an advanced airplane setup that includes dual ailerons, dual flaps, and retractable landing gear, and a 3D capable nitro powered helicopter. Dual Rates, Exponential, Pre-programmed and General Purpose Compensation Mixes – they’re all covered.
If you own or are thinking or purchasing a DX8, then this book is a MUST HAVE. And at $19.99 you can’t go wrong.
