|Thread: DX8 Warranty message ????|
Even my subwoofer is bluetooth and usb for software updates. crazy, but true.

When I bought my DX18QQ it had 50 model memories and some mixes it wouldn't do. A couple of patches later, it now has 250 model memories and more mixes, plus more. Seems there was enough memory to add model memories and such, after time, the developers probably released it and improved as time went by.
Today's gadgets are mainly software based, so you have to accept that your radio, computer, phone, etc will have software updates. Software is so complex and huge that not every bug can be identified and fixed and when found at a later date, a patch can be incorporated.
Even rocket engineers aren't immune from mistakes, the recent Space X launch was a glitch, software wasn't correct and didn't give enough thrust for a gentle touch down, probably had the wrong program running for landing on Mars, not earth, as Mars has less gravity, less thrust, but you don't run that landing on earth! oops.
Tech is here, no going back, be one with the force...
At home, now, there are upgrades I do on my:
Computers: Antivirus software; Anti malware and software updates;
Phone, similar to computer'
Transmitters and receivers have all been updated, Spektrum and Hitec to the latest firmware, and models backed up from the radio onto backups.
Hifi Sonos streaming unit updates done and music being scanned as and when new material is added onto the NAS
Router have had the password changed and set correctly;
SVS Subwoofer firmware updated.
TV and Blu-ray player updates done.
What are you doing? right click on the download box as "save as". its not that hard, use logic.
i think you are trying to open the file with Windows Media Player. do as I said and not run the file.
Thats how you get viruses, trying to run downloads. Not Spektrum's fault or the transmitter - operator fault. maybe get someone to look at your computer, as it's probably full of malware and trojans if you don't know what you're doing. sorry.

|Thread: would you volunteer ?|
I would, know how to configure the aircraft for landing, set the flight computer, not just about flying the plane, several procedures have to be done in the correct order.
|Thread: DX8 Warranty message ????|
Why? do like this:
Go on Spektrum Community and register your transmitter. go onto DOWNLOAD and download the .SPmtx.sax and find where the file was saved, usually in downloads. copy or move the file onto a formatted SD card.
remove "SD CARD" on the computer not pulling it out or this might corrupt it. insert into the DX8 and turn on.
If this doesn't work, you are doing something wrong.
make sure you save it on the card, with the original filename and not a (1) extension, also in the root directory. it's dead simple.
|Thread: Tier 4 ?|
To tell you the truth, not to be a doomsayer, but 2021 will be worse than 2020, don't think there will be any shows or events happening next year, we've gone backwards and not even New Year.
best thing is we curl up and die, human race is had it. As long as there is humans around, there will be Covid.
|Thread: Hanger 9 P47 Thunderbolt 60|
I got my rc petrol car out yesterday, not ran since spring and batteries were almost fully charged, the sub c pack was reading 6.5v and only needed 500mah to top it off.
good fun in the snow, when i can't fly...
|Thread: Battery advice please|
or just buy loads of batteries, i have hundreds of them and even going to a fly-in have enough batteries for several days flying without needing to recharge.
How about these? have more capacity and smaller than most 2200mah batteries. also 30c, but when I had them in my F27q delta even at full throttle, the battery was still cold and have almost 10 mins of flight time. Normal 2200's would be puffed up and hot at 6 mins.

|Thread: Screen Size|
I don't have a licence or watch sky rubbish,itv/bbc, etc that are really stupid and put a bright white logo on the screen which causes 1000's of tv sets to be knackered. I don't know why it is allowed, criminal damage, really. Oled and such are easily damaged by static images, yeah, A Plasma tv less so, but not made anymore.
I only use mine for Blu-ray, TV series, etc, but not brain-dead tv.
The LG OLED model is the best one, my brother just bought mine, and don't buy cheaper ones, £900 led is too cheap and will regret it. I'm into home cinema and demand the best picture and sound quality, and nothing else will do...
you think spending £200 on a sound bar is alot, try £20k on a 9.1 channel surround system. just bought a new sub woofer, and that was £2000...
|Thread: AR 8010T Spectrum receiver|
On the 8000 and 6210 rx's i put a piece of plastic tube over the aerial to take and sideways strain.
|Thread: New scam alert!|
I've had one from DPD, as they said that 2 deliveries had failed and to redeliver they wanted payment, etc.
What was quite obvious was not so, as I was expecting a pair of boxing gloves and punch bag at the same time, but their tracking number, I copied and pasted onto the genuine DPD website and surprise, surprise, didn't exist. The things came from another carrier, Yodel, but can see how people can get drawn in, if you are expecting delivery.
Also had one from "DVLA" saying my car was untaxed and if I don't submit payment, I will go to prison, There was no car details, not even my name. said "Dear Sirs" and was from DVLAfriends. yeah, right. Checked online, and both cars are taxed and mot'd...

|Thread: E-flite 2021 Catalogue|
I loved looking through the booklet, droool! didn't even read the bmfa mag, but studied the e-flite pamphlet. The prices are what they are- everything has gone up, not just planes. Just need to work more to get the same item, though e-flite stuff are high quality - you pay for what you get.
Only problem is that they are hard to obtain, now, for example had the Citation on order since march, and still not arrived...
On my list are:
NX 12 or 20;
UMX Citation twin edf.
