Any trade shows/ exhibitions coming up where HH could launch the iX20?
I heard a rumour that it will be available in Nov...……..not sure which year though

We don't usually launch at trade shows.

I saw a flyer affiliated with Horizon using the iX20 at a Warbird event in Muncie two weeks ago. I do not recall his name.

Pretty much everything on the FCC site except the iX20 just got announced and/or posted.

Both new receivers: AR637 and AR6610T, the Avian SMART ESC's hinted at in the manuals....

The iX20 has also shown up in product launch videos from Horizon earlier this year. It's clear that quite a few Horizon beta testers have been using them for a while.

I'm looking forward to actually running the software and determining the feel of the case, but equally important is the sticks.

Yeah ... but does it run Crysis?

I wonder, did Spektrum ask Hyundai for permission to use their model designation?

It's on the shelf behind the IX12, you get a better peak at it around the 4.40 mark.

Looks a bit larger than the IX12, I just sold my DX18 cause while it's a great radio, I finally came to terms it was just a tad too large for me [insert jokes here]. the DX9/IX12 are perfect for me.

Wow, what a teaser spektrum haha
You could actually see the radio for half the video, and right at the intro he set it on the shelf behind the ix12. Clever, I hope it releases tomorrow.......

I was looking to buy either a Gen 2 DX18 or a DX20 and then saw where both have been discontinued......Tell me--Who was the brain child behind discontinuing both of these transmitters before a replacement was available???......I would actually purchase a DX20 now if one were available and if I liked the IX20 I would purchase that TX when it arrives...But to leave us with NO purchasing options is just BAD marketing...

Look again, more stuff submitted to the FCC.

Who is that little module for with the cutesy dev board? Not the Katy but the next one? I already forgot what city in Texas it is named for?

While thinking about it, why does the Katy only have a single antenna? Emmm?

Is it now a contest to find where Horizon may locate a new facility at?

Christmas seems like a favorite time, though.....

Especially after all these months after FCC submittal.

A lot of China time to build lots of stuff!

I love the simplicity of all my spectrum Tx`s I would just like to have me Ix12 to be 100% reliable as my Dx ones were

Thank you

These are close to my feelings too.

There are couple of annoying things about the iX12, yet I use mine all the time.

I know some will be”improved” by the he upgraded (faster) hardware, but unless fancy things are done, the real time aspects will still not be as good as the DX series just by the nature of the difference between the embedded code of the DX verses Android (non real time with extra overhead.).

Another one is if we can actually see the screen out in the field!!!!

And better audio quality!

Those two above UI related things are REALLY high on my list!!!

I want to be able to see and hear my radio in the field!!!

The iX20 will surely command a good price, it would sure be nice if it looked more Lexus than Toyota given the quality is already inherently there......
