Now that's more like it. has everything you need and nothing you don't (like a big colour screen and camera) Plus if it comes out at that price it will be even better

True, but it makes it so much easier to programme if you can see all the information on one screen instead of having to scroll through lots of different ones.

Just saw it here. Glad I cancelled my DX10T a month ago because I got tired of waiting for it and this is a much better price and layout and I was mostly looking for the 18 channels. I wonder when these will be available for us to really have as customers and will I have one this flying season; I doubt it based on the HH hype? Maybe I will be proved wrong but will try to get a real answer at the WRAM Show from HH.

This is a spektrum radio like the DX8 dont think there will be a JR version, but JR will probably bring out there own 18X. In the rest of the world JR and Spektrum are marketed differently, only in USA they are both under Horizon

Aren't all new JR units going to be running their own 2.4 system? I don't fancy buying all new receivers for my models for a new system when I come replace my current JR tx, so for me it looks like Horozon have got it spot on yet again.

Excellent news. Now if only the US dollar price translated to UK pounds at the current F/X rate. Highly unlikely I'd guess. I'm thinking more likely pounds for dollars.

Anyone know when it's going to be in stock?

Whhaaaat?! Why is it smart Spektrum marketing to release a product 12 months after announcing it. All my excitement just evaporated.
