Spektrum DX-18


Horizon just announced the DX-18. $799. coming this summer. I would certainly consider one if I didn't already have an X9503...

I also just noticed their "X-plus" technology for channel expansion. Here is one device.

^^ Looks nice! I personally don't like how it looks, but technologically, it looks great!

Dave sorry for calling you out but I know you too well

Don't drill holes in your kgo!!!! It isn't needed you only have 1 battery and it has protection built in and the end away from your face is designed to pop out if the battery decides to vent
Yeah, I kinda figured he did some 'wackO' mod Nope, I'm totaLLy haPpy with my cuRRent setuP !! No moDDing iT !

EDIT: Anyone watch the Jeb Corliss vid I posted ? CoMMents ?

Looks like RF6 is it then. Hopefully TowerHobbies will have a coupon soon to lower the price.

I have always thought those guy's have balls too big for their little brains to keep under control. Its awesome to push the limits and it makes for great entertainment but they are asking for it now

I was thinking about getting RF6 but that price tag is a bit much for me since I don't use the sim much. I will probably wait until I can find a used copy of it

Phoenix sim is a very good competitor to RF. Also: they don't charge for upgrades, or models, or environments.

I am surprised that he has not crashed sooner. With all of the balls of steel, his CG was starting to throw him off a little bit.

will program at least 3 servos in each wing panel and two servos in the elevator halves. i hate that the throttle trim is digital. might be something i need to start saving up for

i heard he bounced off some rocks from others but was never able to track down the video. ever since i found his flying the crack video which i posted a while back he's been kinda a hero to me. i'll let him jump off the cliffs and i'll just watch thank you very much. i dont even wanna know what the damage was. im just glad he conscious and was able pull his shoot although it didnt look like it deployed it was better than nothing
