Yes, I'm looking forward to evaluating and reviewing the DX8 and will do so with an open mind.
Horizon will be pleased to know that in the upcoming reviews and shootout, I'm only looking at the features of the radios involved, not the RF link because I've already reviewed that aspect of the various brands.
It's interesting to note that I've given Hitec some stick over the years for deficiencies in some of their products but they had the guts to send RCModelReviews product for review. I think they appreciated the fact that although I had said bad things about their products -- it was fair and objective comment and that it didn't mean I had any personal vendetta or grudge against it. And, low and behold, when I tested their AFHSS system it turned out to be very good and that's what I told people.
Likewise, I have found DSM2 to be wanting but if the DX8 is a good radio, I will say so.
It simply remains to be seen whether Horizon have the same faith in their product that Hitec clearly has in theirs.
RCModelReviews.com, just the facts.
