    SD-10G Super

    The new Airtronics SD-10G Super has been shown the first time at Shizuoka Hobby-Show:
    http://www.hobby-show.info/shizuoka2011/0142.htm

    When will the new radio hit the shops and what kind of improvements does the Super offer? And how about price?

    RE: SD-10G Super

    Sanwa has shown the prototype WAY early in this case. In Beijing a week before they showed this prototype, they had not finalized features, release date, etc.

    Once these details have been finalized, we will announce them here.

    RE: SD-10G Super

    Mike,

    Has Sanwa ever offered a trade-up/trade-in program? I just purchased an SD-10G and love it, but I am never content and always want the latest. Would love to have an option via Sanwa, HobbyPeople, etc.

    At the moment you have the latest equipment. As I said that radio in the picture is a prototype and not finalized in any way.

    RE: SD-10G Super

    Good afternoon, can anyone tell me when the SD-10G Super will be released? Will it be out in 2012? I'm really not crazy about the all silver SD-10Gs and want to upgrade my RDS8000(s) sometime before next summer.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    RE: SD-10G Super

    Thanks for posting that link! Here's what I see...(besides the two-tone black and brushed chrome case)...it looks like the Super will have a knob in the VR8 position, and a toggle switch in the 25/26/27 switch position. This is not surprising given the SD-10G has these switch positions labled, but without switches (plasic plugs fill the switch holes); I think we all knew this was coming.
    It looks like dimensions and ergonimics will be the same. Same Display button; 3 direct model select; 4 yes/no/f-mode/end buttons and selecter dial.
    As for the two-tone finish, I would guess that what we see on the store shelves will be different; definitely looks like a prototype, and who knows how many other variations they (Sanwa) are looking at?
    Of course, there's no way to know what's different "under the hood" when you're looking at a picture. Perhaps any software/firmware changes will be available as "updates" to older SD-10Gs? I personally would not see the addition of VR8 and Switch 25/26/27 as a reason to replace my SD-10G. I have plenty of unused switches on my SD-10G, and I don't really need 2 more.
    For those looking to upgrade and don't already have a SD-10G, I think the Super makes the SD line even more attractive.

    Not yet.

    First, there is a new pistol grip surface radio called MX-V and the TSL-01 telemetry box.

    RE: SD-10G Super

    The all-silver SD10G grew on me. I didn't like it at first, but really couldn't let 'color' influence my decision on what radio to buy.

    RE: SD-10G Super

    <edit> Oops.... I didn't see how old thei thread was. Well, if there is still time to make requests...

    It's not finalized yet.... Does that mean we end users can give some input as to what we'd like to see?
    If so, I want 10 fully customizable flight modes. Hey, the new DX18 from Spektrum offers 10 sailplane flight modes, so why not 10 for this radio?

    Put a word if for me, Mike..... please....

    Sanwa has shown the prototype WAY early in this case. In Beijing a week before they showed this prototype, they had not finalized features, release date, etc.

    Once these details have been finalized, we will announce them here.

    And am MP3 player!! It would be SO cool to have an MP3 player on a toggle switch for pattern flying - toggle the switch for next maneuver

    RE: SD-10G Super

    There is a new SD-6G 4WD in the pipe...

    ...and the super duper M12.

    Honestly, what do you expect from a SD-10G Super?

    RE: SD-10G Super

    How about a skinnier case and tighter tolerance on construction? I LOVE the features and intuitiveness of the radio, but the more I use it, the more I don't like the feel. I'm starting to think about changing brands to have a radio that feels right in my hands. I wish that was not the case.

    I love the SD-10G, it will be a tough act to follow. I'd take a few more channels and telemetry options but beyond that I'm happy as is.

    RE: SD-10G Super

    Episode 207 of Model Airplane News' "The Radio Control Show" was just posted online today:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=efJzOpLy4Ko

    It features a quick interview with Mike Greenshields at the 2013 Toledo "Weak Signals" show describing the new Airtronics SD-10g Super.

    Mike describes the radio as being a different color, and the switches have been "redone." It's not the most informative interview, but at least we get to see the new radio.
    Electric RC planes are like non-alcoholic beer, they are OK in a pinch if the real thing is not available.
