Default Huh? DX8 Setup not transferal from DX6i

So I setup my fleet on my new DX8 tonight. I had the DX6i sitting next to me and I was extracting servo reversal, swashmix, D/R my throttle cures out of two CP helis.

Well I was surprised after I completed binding the DX8 to the helis the each of them had a screwed up swashplate movement. Did not recognize a pattern but both heli's had to have at least on servo reversed and one swashmix reversed.

Did not expect this.... Why does Spectrum have different setup parameters?

Best Regards
I am becoming a better Heli Mechanic than Pilot.

There are a few parameters that may be different.Its just how it comes out to make all the progrograming right.The best thing to do is just set the model up from scratch with a new radio.
Too many helis & Too many planks
Lots of DX radios & A couple Futaba 72mhz radios

always set up from scratch! i found this out a few years back upgrading from a DX6i to a DX7. They are just not the same radios.
