Don't let the size of this clever little full range, 2.4GHz transmitter fool you. It is, to coin a popular idiom, a wolf in sheep's clothing. Looking, at first glance, like nothing more than a basic four-channel game-style transmitter you have to take a closer look to understand its true power. Boasting 8 real channels (operated by regular dual-axis gimbals, plus additional switch-, dial- and button-operated functions) the T8S is both versatile and sophisticated. Equipped with FHSS frequency-hopping spread spectrum protocol that offers a superior transmission rate, enhanced interference rejection and a secure full range capability, the T8's versatility comes in its ability to operate anything from a small two-channel yacht to an 8-channel warbird with retracts, flaps two auxiliary functions and even programmable mixing. That's outstanding at this price point and it's all done via an easy-to-use bluetooth smartphone app that's free to download for both Apple and Android phones. By storing multiple model memories on your smartphone the T8S becomes as powerful at the field as any entry-level 8-channel computer radio yet, of course, it takes half the space in your flight-box or rucksack.
Comfortable to hold with quality gimbals and reassuringly sturdy auxiliary switches, you'll find yourself rather taken with this neat and tidy little box of tricks.
