Spektrum DX6(G2/G3/e),DX7(G2),DX8(G2),DX9,DX18G2,DX18T and DX20 Questions and Answers


Edit:

Please notice: This thread is about the new Spektrum radio lineup which came out after the DX8 and DX7s.

All Spektrum radios with speech, which are DX6 (G2, G3 and "e", the black ones), DX7 (G2, the black one), DX8 (G2, the black one), DX9 (no matter which colour ), DX18G2 and Stealth Edition, DX18t (only available in Europe), the new top model DX20 and also the speechless DX10t/DX18/DX18QQ have the same codebase, so most questions and answers apply to all of these radios.
The older radios (DX18, DX18QQ and DX10t) have no speech functionality and no wireless trainer, but the same software features.

The following radios are NOT covered: DX8, DX7s and every other Spektrum radio without SD card slot.

Please also notice that all radios imported to Europe from the beginning of 2015 do not support DSM2 anymore due to European regulations. US and the rest of the world are not affected.


So let's start the fun.


I heard a rumor in a german forum about this:


If it is shopped, then congratulations to the shopper. Looks like a product photo. Every detail perfect.
Display like the DX18, diversity, speech, wireless buddy-boxing, ....

If it is real then I am pissed.
I also heard in the german forum I should wait for tomorrow.
Would explain the sellout on the DX8 kits with RX.

Wow.Very interesting.What forum did you find the pic on? And the details? Looks like it could bridge the gap between the 8 and 18. I take it all with a grain of salt though.Its not the first time something was announced out of Germany that didnt materialize.
Does it seem credible or maybe just a photoshop?

To me it looks real. Too good to be shopped, imho.
Seems they are catching up. Bought a MX16 and tried to duplicate the functions
Wireless buddyboxing, speech, no showstoppers.

Picture came from a forum user on rc-heli.de. No info where he got it. Just told me I should wait until tomorrow....

Welcome back - here to spread the Spektrum love again I see.

It appears you are a fan of the FrSky Taranis but I must admit this box looks MANY ordinals better than that. And at the core I bet that the DX9 will balance on the neck strap - something rather important for a new design.

So who is the design leader and sets the high water mark now renatoa?

I think it looks great - a blend of good functionality and modern. And at least it is not orange - LOL.
