I didn't initially bond with my DX8 though it's a way better TX. I opened it up and used triflow on the bands (I loosened them nearly all off) and now find it really nice and smooth. I fly better with the DX8 I believe. I think you'll enjoy it after the DX6i.

I also use thumbs and find I have progressed just as well as any pinch flyer. I also hold kinda low when I use the sim. As long as you are comfortable there is no bad way to hold the sticks or TX IMHO.

Thanks guys. It was over all time to retire the 6i as a sim Tx. The gimbals no matter how much you clean them were getting that plastic sticky effect. So small detailed stick moves were becoming quick popping moves.

Guess I wore it out with all the Nano flights. lol This past winter I averaged 150 flights per month with it. Then I had my mCPx-v2 I also flew now and then.

Pre CP's I had that MSR and 120SR and every free moment I had one of the 2 in the air in my living room even the 120SR I was doing pyro's, Nose in or tail in FP style funnels/circles, in my 8 x 8 fly zone for for it.

So ya the 6i was used when I got it, then I did run it hard. lol
