Hi Dave. Looking for a Tx to fly my turbine aircraft. Need something reliable. Will a Spectrum DX18 GEN 1 be a good choise?
Dave A.
yes that is a fantastic radio
Superb setup ability
great resolution and fantastic value
Is the GEN 2 worth twice the price?
Dave A.
yes, an no. you gain voice alerts, and its the new main board and gimbals
the v1 with enhanced software is still a great radio for that price
the gen2 has all the new parameters as well as the newer harware
Copy, voice is nice, but not a must. All other functions is good enough on the GEN 1. What about Rx, will the AR9020 be a good for turbine A/C with a glass fiber airframe?
Dave A.
yep, the 9020 will do great
the dual sats really help
Are there any better Rx than 9020 for this use?
Dave A.
no, this is one of our top recievers
Good copy! I ll scan your web pages and do some shopping. Thanks for your help!
Dave A.
you are most welcome!
