So I stand corrected, a new thread is appropriate for this new radio.

So my burning questions are......

Can this nice looking display be *easily* viewed in direct full sun?

What is the mA power draw of the system?

Is the touchscreen reasonably robust? It is likely to get properly hammered by the neck strap hook swinging across it. Presumably screen protector films can be applied without stopping the touch functionality?

Cheers

From what I can see in the available videos, the screen is easily seen in outdoor conditions.

I think RCGroups will have a Special Podcast at 2:00pm today. I'm not sure if it's an "exclusive", but it should be fun.

Making the app available for download to try on any android device would go a long way to answering peopleís questions about the ix12ís abilities. Iíd enjoy checking it out, donít think Iíll spend $600 to play around but if I was impressed with the app I. Like definitely see myself buying another radio.

This radio is 1/2 seriously awesome and 1/2 very redundant to anyone carrying a smart phone. I have had cameras with android on them. Its just superfluous for the most part. Looks great on paper, but you're simply not going to text your friends and browse the web off your TX, much less through a hotspot thats already your phone. But, I'm not going to knock that. Just worried that Spektrum has a terrible track record on android development. Now we have another Android OS that will need security updates and so forth.

But... the TX has one job, and thats to be an awesome TX. If they nailed that, with this interface and new screen, this will be a great radio to have for that reason alone. I'm not spending $600 for all that social/web stuff, a $50 Fire tablet does all that.

Exactly.

I developed the original DX8 with the expectation of a 2-CPU system in the future - one for the UI, one for the flight controls. The current radios already support a non-existent or non-responsive UI (ie, "locked up") and will continue to fly the aircraft just fine. This was a primary system constraint from the very beginning of our development.

The iX12 is simply the realization of what was started almost 10 years ago.

My original DX8 is right next to me at my Desktop in charge of all Phoenix Simulator Missions.
