Built-In Telemetry with Data Log. Fly Smarter with Vital Model Feedback.
The DX18 is equipped with a built-in telemetry feature that gives you real-time information on things like your model's battery voltage, signal quality, engine or motor temperature, airspeed, altitude and more. It will also log the telemetry data to its SD card so you can review it after the flight.Just connect a Spektrum TM1000 or TM1100 Air Telemetry Module (both sold separately) to the AR9020 receiver. Spektrum has a wide array of telemetry sensors for tracking just about any vital model function you can think of and new ones are being added all the time. You can see the entire selection of telemetry modules, sensors and accessories here.
Monitor Telemetry on Your Apple Device Too
In addition to viewing telemetry on your DX18 LCD display, Spektrum lets you send telemetry info direct to your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod Touch® with the TR1000 STi Interface (sold separately).* It's a great way to let someone else watch telemetry so you can focus completely on flying.
*Requires free STi app. Compatible with iPad, iPod Touch (4th gen), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPhone.
Max Out Your Functions
Both the DX18 and its AR9020 receiver are X-Plus capable, meaning you can add up to eight extra channels with an X-Plus channel expansion module. You just plug the module into the AR9020, bind it, and then assign the extra 8 channels to any function desired. It's just what anyone who flies complex scale models or high-performance sailplanes needs.
Powerful Features for the Expert Pilot
The Spektrum AirWare™ software that comes in the DX18 offers all the programming features an expert pilot could want. And the intuitive SimpleScroll™ interface makes navigating menus and changing settings as simple as "roll and click". It's almost like using a mouse.
Many Spektrum AirWare features are innovations you won't find anywhere else; innovations that make flying safer and programming easier.
Pro-Class Programming for Sailplanes
In addition to extensive airplane and heli programming, the DX18 has the most impressive sailplane programming features you'll find in any hand-held transmitter. 10 available flight modes, 5 wing types, 3 tail types, 2 motor types, flap delay with elevator compensation; it has it all. You even have the ability to adjust individual servo characteristics (end points, travel, center, etc.) for all 18 channels.
Program a sequence of switch-activated events with time delays between each event. For instance, with a flip of the gear switch you could have an auxiliary channel open landing gear doors, then have the retract channel lower the landing gear, followed by the auxiliary channel closing the gear doors after the gear is extended.
Built-In Servo Balancer
No more will you need a complicated network of little boxes littering your fuselage if you want to balance servos. You can precisely balance the output of CCPM swash servos or multiple servos on a single control surface using a 7-point curve mix.
X-Plus™ Channel Expansion
Both the DX18 and its AR9020 receiver are X-Plus capable, meaning you can add up to eight extra switch channels with an X-Plus channel expansion module. You just plug the module into the AR9020 and bind it. It's just what anyone who flies complex scale models or high-performance sailplanes needs.And you'll always be up to date with the latest version of Spektrum AirWare thanks to the Spektrum Community and the Spektrum Data Interface (SDI). Just register your DX18 at community.spektrumrc.com and you'll receive alerts whenever a new version of Spektrum AirWare is available. You can then download the new version onto a standard SD card and upload it to your transmitter via the SDI. You can also use the SDI to upload setups for specific models from the Spektrum Community site, share model setups with other DX18 owners or store extra model memory. An SD card is included so you can start taking advantage of this handy feature right away.
