A Distinctive Look and Exclusive Extras
Like the original DX18, the Stealth Edition puts the most impressive combination of features ever made available in a handheld transmitter right at your fingertips. To this it adds a distinctive black finish along with an exclusive Stealth Edition aluminium carrying case and neck strap. You also get an AR9020 9-channel receiver as well as an SD card that comes pre-loaded with model setups for some of the most popular Horizon Hobby aircraft.
Powerful Features for the Expert Pilot
The Spektrum™ AirWare™ software that comes in the DX18 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.
Programmable Voice Alerts
With voice alerts, you can keep tabs on important functions without ever taking your eyes off what you're flying. They can be programmed to call out what flight mode you've chosen or report telemetry information on demand. If an alarm goes off, you won't have to look at the transmitter display to see what's happening. The transmitter will tell you.
Pro-Class Programming for Sailplanes
In addition to extensive airplane and heli programming, the DX18 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, and flap delay with elevator compensation as it has it all. You even have the ability to adjust individual servo characteristics (end points, travel, centre, etc.) for all 18 channels.
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 swash-plate servos or multiple servos on a single control surface with the transmitter using a 7-point curve mix.
Wireless Trainer Link
The wireless trainer link gives instructors the option to wirelessly buddy box with another DSM2™/DSMX® transmitter. Once bound to another transmitter, ModelMatch™ technology will allow the DX18 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.
The enormous capacity of the DX18's on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card. The model memory menu is easier to navigate too. Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear. You won't have to scroll through empty slots or move models around if one is deleted.
