All the DT versions have the same software. The only differences between the Air, Heli and Sailplane versions have to do with switch and pot placement; nothing else.

Its a great radio. I'm kind of sad I sold mine for a Stylus!

Like the visioneer said, if it is a DT nothing has changed over the last couple of years.

I am not sure when, but at some point the USA distributed 8103's had CCPM enabled from the factory. Older models needed a service tech to spend two minutes and enable if from the "secrete" service menu. If yours has it enabled then you will see the CCPM swash feature in the main heli menu.

My guess is that change occurred with the DT model, but that is just a guess.
