The reason for wanting to upgrade to the DX18 is because I ran into limitations with the DX8.
It boils down to all the extra stuff not found on the DX8.

Just waiting for the perfect alignment of finance,wife and store stock in order to get one.

I bought mine because the text size on the screen is smaller than my old DX8.

This is the question you asked: "What is the biggest reason you bought a DX18?"

Don't really have a main reason. Been a Futaba guy forever and have an 8FG. Last year I switched to a pair of DX8s and had a few things that I didn't like about them like the huge print restricting what the screen could show at one time (Sorry VP, but it's true), stupid inactivity alarm, and concerns about overall reliability with both the TX and the DSM2/DSMx protocols.

The DX18 addressed all of those, and the dual antennas seem to provide a more solid link.

So there are 78 that voted for "Small Text", but only 4 who voted here? How can anyone be sure they like the small text until you try using the menus?

Actually, almost ALL of the Above. I will probably never need 18 channels but I purchased it for the programming features. The dual antennas, user adjustable inactivity alarm and included LiPO options mentioned in poll are just pluses.

i never own a spektrum radio but i saw a video of the dx18 lcd, and damn, what a cr*p LCD module, ultra slow time response pixel, ghosting effect is exagerated.
Looks even worst than my FlySky/Turnigy 9x
