I just got my i8 and wanted to share what is inside the black box. only 4 screws on the back to remove. A GD32F130 is running the show and there is a Silabs SI2102 on the USB port, so it is not only for charging the Nokia style battery. The RC part is a FlySky FS-HF030B.

Is the radio really small or do you just have massive hands?

You know what they say about guys with big hands...

Haha, is it "big hands...big gloves"? ;)

No, it's just last year in Montreal, the temperature was -22F (-30C) the month of January and February and gloves were needed. With spektrum DX9, I always moved around the buttons unintentionally

I reckon this thing could've been so much better.

All they needed to do was:

Use 12 channels

Add telemetry and bluetooth.

Make the channel selector the push buttons instead of rotary switch.

I do like that the 8 channels you do get are output as both PPM and PWM simultaneously.

Not that I have a lot to say about Quantum products, but they built this for the low end consume not the majority of geeks like myself.  What I'm more interested in is range quality and what receivers can be used with this radio?  Time to research more on this unit.
