Default Horizon Hobbies it's getting ready to unveil ?

Hi

I've noticed that Horizon Hobby has put most of the Spektrum receivers on sale.

Don't get me wrong I love my Spektrum receivers.

It almost looks like Horizon Hobbies it's getting ready to unveil something new.

What do you guys think?

Johnny

It could be that it is end of season and they are trying to move inventory. Or your suspicion could be correct and more new stuff is coming. If I had to guess, I think and hope they will come out with a less expensive version of the iX12. By the way, anyone notice an iX12 was used on Battlebots this season?

One other thing about Horizon. Anyone notice that Model Airplane News has gone down 30 some pages in the last few months? Without the Horizon ads, it would be even smaller. I think Horizon is helping keep the hobby going with new products

How will that work inside a carbon fibre fuse?

About as good as 2.4 works in a Submarine. It won't! So something, either an antenna attachment of some sort or a Rx for carbon will have to be produced. But I'm willing to bet that whatever it is, it will cost. If it even happens! Not holding my breath there either.

And the so called antenna-less Rx is not really minus the antenna. The antenna is actually inside the case. I have one to try with smaller models. Putting it in a Proctor Micro Antic, 36 inch wing. We'll see how that works. But it lends itself real well to easy install. A little servo tape and a push.
