Or if you're cheap, (like me!), you could pick up a used Mars R and drop in the Spektrum system. If you do that, you've got a Radio that's faster than an M8, and spektrum equipped, for considerably less dough. Plus you'll stand out from the sea of Airtronics radios.
The Mars R is an awesome radio as well. I would go with KO Propo they have many radios that are proven... airtronics only has one.
