Dont got one myself, but I've seen it. Really nice. Heavy? Hmmm. Is it really that much more heavy than the competitors? Of course, grip means a lot, but still, I would say it's a really good radio you got there.

Features? Personally, I find that radios like 3PDF, Presto and MX-3 suites most people. Honestly, I dont think that many people use much more than in the ones I mentioned.

PS: Please turn your caps of.

Heavy????

If you find the M8 heavy, then maybe you should use a Multiplex or something??

for the features that it has, the M8 is actually fairly light and well balanced.

I use an R-1....if you want to feel heavy, give one a try I'm a big guy though, and the extra weight doesn't bother me, I'm not running 1/8 on-road or anything silly like that where you'd run a 1 hour main...I can see there where every ounce would help

I would love to have an M8 myself. I got an Presto, and now a days, the M8 is just a little more expensive, than when I bought my Presto. But I'm happy with my Presto, so I wont switch
