Hey guys, I was just curious if any of you guys out there may have owned the newest version of the Escort 8500x50 before buying a Redline? Not to sound utterly stupid or anything, but is there an EXTREMELY noticeable difference in performance between the two detectors? On a side note, I was just entering the city limit of Colorado Springs today on I-25 and got a K band alert on my 8500x50. Naturally, I slowed down to 5 over because the Colorado Springs motorcycle cops run predominately hand held K band. So, I kept looking for the LEO and didn't see him. However, what I did see was an unmistakeable K-band drone that was mounted onto a light pole and it had a small solar panel attached to it as its power source. So, is the sole purpose of these drones to make detector users slow down? Thanks in advance for the good info!
