iFlight has also released the game pad type radio iF8. It is 2.4G 8 channels radio running OpenTX and is compatible with Frsky D8 protocol. This radio is clearly intended for beginners and is designed to be easy to use. iFlight iF8 radio does not have any LCD display or control buttons just the gimbals and 2 three way and 2 two way switches for setting modes.
The iF8 radio has power button, neck strap hook and the 5 leds, probably for battery charge state indication.
On the back of the radio you can probably find the bind button and the cover to unknown bay.
On the top side of the iF8 radio you can find the 4 switches (2 two-way and 2 three-way) and the slot for external antenna. External antenna was probably in the plans, but the final version went with internal one.
iFlight iF8 radio dimensions are similar to the BetaFPV LiteRadio 2 and Jumper T-Lite radios.
