I never liked the looks of that radio when seeing it in ads, but going to Tim's house this winter and seeing your radio and holding it, I was VERY impressed.

I must say that even though I'm a JR/Spektrum guy, the Futaba 8FGH is a winner IMO and if I did switch out my gear, this would be at the top of my list

I love the programing and all funtions of the radio . Im having a heck of a time getting comfy with the feel. I fly pinch and hand placement is something im trying to figure out. But all in all It does have a more connected feel to the heli. than my old DX7.

I fly pinch as well and have no problems ... It's better for me actually because it's so light. I was thinking about losing the neckstrap now that I've gone to LiPo power and shaved another 85g

I have one I'm selling. I loved the radio but my hands did not. I just couldn't get it to feel right. Pm me if anyone is interested.
