optical engine kill.. oh i have a channel for that.... mix ailerons with elevons... oh it does that too...

8 channel heli... wait.. I have that...

thanks, Airtronics... If and when I decide to get a new radio... It'll be the SD10g.

I've been a fan for a very long time for similar reasons.  They do what we need them to do, and then some.  As an SD10 owner (and RD8000 as well) I can tell you the SD10 only raises the bar. 

Happy Holidays

Totally agree...RDS8000 is an excellent radio. Then I got an SD-10G...even better!!! Had to upgrade cause I needed throttle curve feature.

I really like both radios, I use my RDS800 as my carry radio. I have it in the van with a couple of electrics in case a flying field jumps in front of me. The SD-10G I use for my Giant Scale gas planes. The throttle curve is one reason, stick switches are another, they really can reduce workload in certain situations.

Cheers,

Whitney

I should change this post to "I love my SD10G"

I broke down and bought one... It's such an awesome radio... I need to learn of the cool things you can do with it, like assign switches, etc... but it'll be fun learning

I Agree with all of the above posts, I too started with an RDS8000, then moved up to the SD10G..  love it, I still have alot of learning to do, as far as programming goes, but otherwise love both transmitters..
