Spektrum DX18 Stealth Edition 18-Channel Transmitter With AR9020

Spektrum DX18 Stealth Edition 18-Channel Transmitter With AR9020

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 aluminum 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, 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 swashplate 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.

250 Model Memory

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. Because the DX18 Stealth Edition uses the same software platform as the DX6 Gen 2, DX7 Gen 2, DX9 and DX18 Gen 2, you can share model setups with owners of those transmitters as well.

Stay up to date

Register your DX18 Stealth Edition and receive alerts whenever Spektrum Airware software updates are available.

Just plug the module into the receiver, bind it and then assign the extra channels to any function you want.

Fly Smarter with Built-in Telemetry

Built-in telemetry gives you real-time information on things like your model’s battery voltage, signal quality, engine or motor temperature, airspeed, altitude and more. You can have the DX18 recite this information on demand using the programmable voice alerts. You also have the option of logging telemetry data to the transmitter’s SD card for review after the flight. A Spektrum TM1000 telemetry module and telemetry sensors (all sold separately) are required. You will find there are Spektrum telemetry sensors for tracking just about any model function you can think of, and new ones are being added all the time.

Kyosho Spitfire

Kyosho Spitfire

Who doesn’t love a Spitfire? One of the most iconic Allied aircraft of WW II, its sleek lines and elliptical wing are unmistakable. This .50-size Kyosho model does the full-size justice, with retractable landing gear, functional split flaps, steerable tailwheel, full cockpit and pilot figure. Check out the full release from Kyosho:

The Spitfire is without a doubt, one of the most famous fighters of WWII with earlier models having played an essential defensive role in the Battle of Britain. The flowing curves of the elliptical wings and the overall smooth lines of the Spitfire have made this one of the most popular fighters of the era.

The legendary lines of Spitfire are alive again in the form of this sophisticated, detailed reproduction of one of the most popular WWII fighters in history. This new Kyosho Spitfire remains faithful to scale, while maintaining a high level of performance – it flies as well as it looks. The manufacturing process is complicated; with strong ribbed wings and fuselage that feature a thin balsa skin over its surface. This helps to reinforce the various sections of the wing and fuselage, while providing a smooth, flat surface to which the detailed covering is attached. This new Spitfire features a flat, low glare finish on Oracover film. Oracover is known for its high strength and a tight fit that endures the elements. The camouflage, panel lines and other details are printed on the film, which ensures a clean and highly detailed appearance that is unrivalled in its class for looks and durability. A painted pilot figure fills the cockpit, which itself is adorned with many gauges and instruments for that extra level of detail. If that’s not enough, the new Kyosho Spitfire also includes functional split flaps with the look and feel of the flaps on the full-size aircraft. There is also shock-absorbing retractable front landing gear, with a spring-equipped steerable tail wheel for smooth and maneuverable ground control. This new Spitfire is designed for either EP or GP power, with additional parts included to make it more suited to the power system of your choice. It comes ARF style with all the major assembly and finishing completed. You simply need to install the power and radio systems of your choice, and you’ll be the envy of the flying field. This is best suited for intermediate to expert pilots who are comfortable flying multi-channel aircraft.

Features:

  • Lightweight fuselage, main and tail wings in this ARF kit are pre-covered in Oracover film.
  • Split flap is equipped standardly. The practical use which expands the width of a flight is possible as well as the time of taking off and landing.
  • Metal oleo struts on main and tail gears recreate realistic suspension movement.
  • Hatch opens and closes to store main struts and tires. Independently operated servos recreate the movement of the original airplane.
  • In addition to the pilot figure, and reproduce the already mounted and the actual realism cockpit also the instrument panel of stereolithography.
  • Main components are factory assembled so only a short time needed to finish.
  • Features lightweight balsa structure. Detailed characteristics of the shape are recreated in the pre-built fuselage.
  • Pre-covered in wrinkle-resistant high-quality lightweight camouflage-print film.
  • Printed film also replicates the partition lines of the outer planks and hatch in a highly detailed finish.
  • Large wing area of the elliptical wing generates the low-speed stability of the original SPITFIRE.

Microaces Hawker Hurricane MkIIc

Microaces Hawker Hurricane MkIIc

Talk about great timing: this micro (18-inch-span) Hurricane looks perfect for indoor (read: warm) flying! We just love those WW II RAF fighters. Here’s the full press release from Microaces:

With the rapid development of fighter aircraft during WWII, the Hurricane became appreciably more vulnerable. But this didn’t spell the end for the type but just a shift in roles. BE581 is a perfect example of where the Hurricane found a niche; as a Night Fighter, equiped with powerful 20mm cannon, an uprated Rolls Royce Merlin XX powerplant and painted in an all encompasing matt black for stealth. Flown by Czech pilot ace Flt.Lt.Karel Kuttlewascher of the RAF’s oldest unit, the legendary No.1 Squadron, the ‘Night Reaper’ created havoc on intrusion raids, picking off enemy aircraft as they returned to their bases in Northern France.
