Product Description

Powerful Features for the Expert Pilot.

The Spektrum™ AirWare™ software that comes in the DX18 transmitter offers all the programming features an expert pilot could want. And the intuitive SimpleScroll™ interface makes navigating menus and changing settings as simple as "roll and click." It's almost like using a mouse.

Many Spektrum AirWare features are innovations you won't find anywhere else, innovations that make flying safer and programming easier.

Pro-Class Programming for Sailplanes

In addition to extensive airplane and heli programming, the DX18 transmitter has the most impressive sailplane programming features you'll find in any handheld transmitter. Ten available flight modes, 5 wing types, 3 tail types, 2 motor types, flap delay with elevator compensation-it has it all. You even have the ability to adjust individual servo characteristics (end points, travel, center, etc.) for all 18 channels.

Built-In Sequencer

Program a sequence of switch-activated events with time delays between each event. For instance, with a flip of the gear switch you could have an auxiliary channel open landing gear doors, then have the retract channel lower the landing gear, followed by the auxiliary channel closing the gear doors after the gear is extended.

Built-In Servo Balancer

No more will you need a complicated network of little boxes littering your fuselage if you want to balance servos. You can precisely balance the output of CCPM swash servos or multiple servos on a single control surface using a 7-point curve mix.

X-Plus™ Channel Expansion

Both the DX18 transmitter and its AR9020 receiver are X-Plus capable, meaning you can add up to eight extra switch channels with an X-Plus channel expansion module. You just plug the module into the AR9020 and bind it. It's just what anyone who flies complex scale models or high-performance sailplanes needs.

Register your DX18 transmitter and receive alerts whenever a new AirWare version is available.

Max Out Your Functions.

Both the DX18 transmitter and its AR9020 receiver are X-Plus capable, meaning you can add up to eight extra channels with an X-Plus channel expansion module. You just plug the module into the AR9020, bind it and then assign the extra 8 channels to any function desired. It's just what anyone who flies complex scale models or high-performance sailplanes needs.

Fly Smarter with Built-in Vital Model Feedback™ Telemetry with Data Log.

The DX18 transmitter is equipped with a built-in telemetry feature that gives you real-time information on things like your model's battery voltage, signal quality, engine or motor temperature, airspeed, altitude and more.

It will also log the telemetry data to its SD card so you can review it after the flight. Just connect a Spektrum TM1000 or TM1100 Air Telemetry Module (both sold separately) to the AR9020 receiver. There is a wide array of Spektrum telemetry sensors for tracking just about any vital model function you can think of, and new ones are being added all the time.
