Default Spektrum iX20 or upgrade to DX20 in works?

Anyone with inside info know if a new version of the DX20 is coming soon or even by next spring? I would think an iX20 (or similar name) is needed to compete with Jeti and Powerbox's new CORE. Please do not comment on the other brands - I'm only asking about Spektrum.
Thanks for any info...

Anything possible and an iX20 would seem a natural progression.

But they are pretty tight lipped about future releases

About 10 days ago Horizon Hobby listed the DX-20 as No Longer Available, then it changed to Backordered. I see both Horizon Hobby and Specktrum now show it as Discontinued. Bummer, as I was ready to upgrade to the DX20. I hope its replacement will be worth the wait!

There's more 20's on the way.

They might discontinue that particular SKU and replace it with one with a different RX but there ARE DX-20's coming.

I suspect that we'll see an iX20 at some point, but judging by the comments I see mostly on RC Groups, I think Horizon/Spektrum has got their hands full trying to iron out the bugs in the new radio. Once they get a better "feel" for what they need to change/modify/fix on the iX12 I think you'll see a 20 show up.

I like my DX20 and the new PowerSafe rx's with the AS3000 module are very capable right now with more flexibility coming to the forward programming as the PowerSafes can have their firmware updated. I've not used it on a Turbine yet, I've got a T-One setup with it but haven't had an opportunity to fly it yet as I'm still tinkering with the same setup I put in an electric model to get familiar with the thing and the gyro which I've never used before.
