As do I.
They're selling something as "exclusive, unique features" what should be a free software update for any DX18.
Not to mention that most are already standard in other remotes in this price range.

DX18QQ Quique Special Edition Transmitter with AR12120, X-Plus 8 by Spektrum (2 min 32 sec)


Disappointing, but still better than the Hyper Taxi.

Not to mention that a $1000+ tx doesnt appeal to the masses in this industry

Buy a $1200 radio to fly the same ARFs as everyone else, only then will you be truly unique.

I love every airplanes designed and tweaked by QQ, but would not go for the Tx, particularly when it's $400 more than a standard DX18. Love the faceplate though, too much chrome is never a good thing.

Edit: Heck, I would buy a standard DX18, and the Beast 3D and the Edge 540QQ for the same price as being unique with that new Tx..

Not surprised at all. I knew it was radio related sin e the JR rep was In charge of the promotion. Just figured it was a new gyro. Oh well, glad I didn't get all excited.

John Diniz? What would the JR guy have to do with a Spektrum product?
