    RE: Spektrum DX18

    I have just had a good look at the specification of the 18 and very nice too, it just strikes me as a set for people who cannot programme a radio, or am I missing something here?

    RE: Spektrum DX18

    I held one in my hands yesterday at the WRAM Show. It felt kind of smaller and lighter than I expected. I really could feel the difference between it and my 12x with the 12x winning out hands down in the gut feeling of quality of materials used but I still like it and chose to get one on order. I was told late third or early fourth quarter this year for the first ones in customers hands. When I pointed out that this was the same story I've been told for the last year on other HH products and said not to hold my breath he asked what I was waiting on so I told him. The young man said they showed the DX10 way to early and were really not expecting the reactions they got for orders and were under prepared for the US reaction of orders. I informed him that I had a DX 10 on order got tired of waiting, bought something else with the funds. I am ordering a DX18 and if they are late that will be the third strike since they have yet to ship any DX10's or F-4 EDF's to customers with excuses each month as to why they are late. I can't believe that whoever blew it on these two products still has a job their after all of the missed delivery dates as of late.

    Look again.
    On the right of the page, it says "Find a Retailer Near You:" Under that is a line where you enter your zip code, and under that says "Due late July 2012"

    I really want to see a downloadable version of the manual on Horizon's site. That would really give some good indications of what it is capable of and would make for a good read.

    The F-4 is late Ron because David Payne found manufacturing defects in the initial container and didn't want to send bad airframes out to customers. I think a delay in this case is BEST for the consumer. Can't comment on the DX-10 cause I haven't a clue there.

    .
    Doug, Yes waiting for a product to be correct is best for the customer in the end. What is interesting is that HH does not communicate that to the dealers they just change the scheduled delivery date almost every month with no explanations. I have waited for products many times in the past 40 years of being a modeler but never over a year for radio that I have held in my hands at three different trade shows. Last Saturday at the WRAM Show the young man in the HH booth was very nice but had no really believable answers as to why the DX10's were still not being shipped and had a DX10tx sitting in the display next to the DX18 tx. Neither looked to be prototypes. What I believe is they are under the gun to not over produce the DX 10 knowing that many people wanted it's capabilities but in a traditional layout for a tx, hence the delay and now the DX18 now; that's ok just tell us customers that. First rule of retail used to be "never show a customer a product they can't buy". Horizon is not alone in this thinking Lionel trains puts out 2-3 catalogs a year for the customers to see what they are thinking of producing and if they do not get enough preorders they do not make that product, the difference is the dealers know that and tell the customers up front and with update emails canceling items so that
    customers are not waiting for Christmas to come and no train under the tree like my customers did with the F-4s that were supposed to in by the end of September then October and now April.

    I would think the China manufacturing process has quite a bit of the issue of delays

    RE: Spektrum DX18

    Hey guys, just a quick note on one of the DX18's main features, the gear door sequencer. I have been playing with it hard for the past couple of days and am finding it to be pretty cool. Timing, sequencing, etc is infinitely adjustable to a point. I will be highlighting it in the Hangar 9 P-47 build thread I am doing in the warbirds section for work. It will be highlighted in one of the main build videos as well as they are brought to life.

    Just thought you might like to know for those interested.

    RE: Spektrum DX18

    John,

    Here's the killer feature someone should do: since the new radios are going to have telemetry, arrange for some way that the telemetry results can be used in the programs in the TX, for example mixing or acting as a "virtual switch".

    I think you will find that using the TX to program the gear is cute, but there is no way to do a gear failsafe function, since mutiple servos control doors, gear, etc.

    But a simple pressure sensor (RCATS telemetry and others already have it for the aftermarket, so the sensors exist and are cheap), converted to voltage and sent down to the TX, then having the TX process the value in a PMIX or something, and you can integrate not only air pressure monitor via telemetry but also implement a failsafe (like the Tamjets unit) via the TX program.

    Dave

    John,

    How is the DX18 set up to handle multiple engines (2 or 4)? Also, is the throttle trim electronic or analog?

    Thanks!
