Spektrum DX8 Gen 2 overview

  • 1Description

The DX8 Gen 2 from Spektrum is a full-range, 8-channel transmitter (radio controller) suitable for use with a wide range of model types, including airplanes, helis, mutli-rotors, and more. It features DSMX protocol with legacy DSM2 support for pairing with a range of receivers (available separately). This version of the DX8 supports control modes 1, 2, 3, and 4.

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 can tell you.

Note: Requires a separately available Spektrum telemetry module and telemetry sensors.
Wireless Trainer Link
Allows users to wirelessly link the DX8 up with other compatible Spektrum transmitters and specially-equipped Spektrum FPV headsets. Once bound to another transmitter or component, ModelMatch technology will allow the DX8 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.

With Wireless Trainer Link, you could:
  • Wirelessly "buddy box" with another DSMX/DSM2 transmitter when teaching someone to fly
  • Assign gimbal functions to a second "camera" transmitter when flying a camera drone, so you can focus on avoiding obstacles and maintaining visual contact while someone else lines up the shot
  • Link with specially-equipped Spektrum FPV headsets to wirelessly control head tracking and remotely change video frequencies


250-Model Memory
The 250-slot capacity of the DX8's on-board memory means you should rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card. The model-memory menu is designed to be easier to navigate, too. Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear; unlike other systems where you will 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.
Built-in Telemetry Readout
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.

Note: Requires a separately available Spektrum telemetry module and telemetry sensors.

Spektrum DX8 Gen 2 reviews

DX8 Gen 2 DSMX 8-Channel Transmitter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all around Tx This Spektrum Tx is a good all around transmitter. It has a good feel. The gimbals are smooth. If I as going to fly greater distances (out of view)I would have found one more capable of other frequencies.
