Default Do all DX8's have telemetry?

So, I have a DX7S, but I want telemetry so I can fly without a timer. Do all the DX8's have voice and telemetry or just the black ones? The black ones are Gen 2 right? I'm looking to get a used one so I don't want to buy the wrong one.

There are Gen 2 black and silver. The colour does not matter and both can be updated to the latest version of Airware. The older Gen 1 does have telemetry but it is limited to the Legacy TM1000/1100 type of transceiver and sensors. Make sure, if you buy it used, that the original owner removes it from the registry at Spektrum when you buy it. Take care.

You want to be looking for the SPM8000 (DX8g2) or the SPMR8100 (DX8e).

This is important. You need to have it registered in your own account to get the software updates. And you need the latest firmware to get the telemetry from flight controllers like the Brain2/iKON2.
