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. Seeming – 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 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.
