The batteries life expectancy can depend a lot on how it is cared for... We used to EXPECT NiCd/NiMh to need replacement every year regardless of care, but now if you care for even cheap ones properly you can get up to 12 years of service.

Actual cost of the DX8 is $300... (its always on "sale")

Yup, $300. But mine came with three receivers and a telemetry module that were worth well over $100 total.

H'mmm thinking about that software update. Might just leave well enough alone, as is often said, "If it works, don't fix it!"
