I flew my new DX18 for the first time today with my new Xplorer F3J glider.
I have flown Hitec, JR, Multiplex Royal EVO and DX8. The DX18 blows them all away.
I raly liked the flexibility of the EVO but it was a little difficult to get it to do all I wanted.
I was afraid that the DX18 would be difficult to get it to do what I wanted but with the great glider download I was able to get flying with only a couple hours of customizing the setup to my requirements. I was able to add a 6th flight mode for improved zoom and i will be adding a KAPOW switch for spot-dork landings.
I have never had a TX that was so easy to understand and program. Each flight mode can have its own flap/aileron/elevator offset and rate. I am really impressed.
I have not had my hands on the really expensive TXs that I have read about and they may be more powerful. but I doubt the cost performance ratio is as good.

Yes I think it is worth the price.
If Spektrum would only include RX voltage and fade/hold telemetry built in to its receivers as Hitec has there would be no contest.
