New DX8e trainer/master function.

Recommended Posts

I have purchased a Spektrum DX8e. It has wireless trainer facility ( For use as a master), and no jack plug facility . The binding described in the manual is for use as a master.

My question is; 'Can the DX8e be used as a slave TX with a non wireless  trainer set up ?'. Simple question.

Hi Bas,

 

I don't have any experience with the DX8e but don't see any reason why not. It will depend on what you are using as a master. If its another Spektrun transmitter with the wireless ability then I'd say, it doesn't matter which is the master and which is the slave.

 

A bit like my Nx8 and Nx6, either could be used as master or slave with each other.

 

You always go into the deeper menu with the master to select wireless binding and the slave you simply have set to bind ready to hit the two bind buttons with each other ........ if that makes sense. Just remember to always have the actual model switched off ( receiver ) otherwise your transmitter will try to bind to the models receiver.

 

Hope that helps a bit as an attempt from a newbie answer.

Hi Toto,I believe you are referring to a wireless to wireless situation. I am talking old style TX ( ie cable connection) as a master to a new wireless as a slave situation.

The DX8e is somewhat different re binding situations. Thanks though!!!

What is the other half of the pair? I’m no great shakes at messing with radios, but ASSUMING the dx8e wants to communicate with some other trani, it uses blue tooth or whatever, ie radio waves. If the other half hasn’t got a blue tooth receiver, if it wants to talk, needs a blue tooth gongle.

I'm not aware such things exist.

Hi Denis,

 

What I was asking was what is Bas's slave .... ie type of transmitter. Apologies if I wasn't clear.

 

Toto

Toto, the slave is the DX8e !!!!!, with no jack plug facility.

Gentlemen, it as I thought , there is no way a connection can be made. It was through desperation that I posed this question hoping that someone may have a solution.

Many thanks.

Bas, what's the master tx? Could you swap roles and make the Dx8e the master. I do a fair bit of instructing and must admit I much prefer wireless over wired.

Frank, the master is a basic Spektrum TX, wired . Not possible to use the wireless as the master.

I dont think its possible, logic really , when you think about it.

Many thanks to you all.

You should be able to use the DX8e as the master and any Spektrum Tx as the slave. The DX8e has a built in receiver which you bind the slave Tx to just like you would to a model. The slave Tx doesn't have to be wireless trainer capable, only the master Tx.

Yes. Bind the DX8 to the model. Select Wireless Trainer. Bind the older tx to the DX8

 

Similar set up as we use in our club.

As Shaun and GG have noted I've done this with a Dx6e as the master and an old DSM2 Dx6I as the buddy, note I had to update the firmware on the Dx6e to get it to work but then it was fine. Note that the receiver in the plane will need to be a DSMx to work with the Dx8e. What is the older tx?
