New Spektrum DX20 20 Channel 2.4GHz transmitter
The new DX20 Transmitter from Spektrum features a carbon fibre front case, quad bearing stick gimbals and a 250 model memory! Now all I need is a warehouse to hold 250 models...
From its premium construction and comfortable ergonomics to its powerful programming features, the DX20 delivers a pro-class flying experience that is second to none. In fact, it's the only transmitter in its price range equipped with machined aluminum gimbals.
Powerful AirWare Software for Expert Pilots
The Spektrum AirWare software that comes in the DX20 gives expert pilots all the programming features they could want along with a few they never knew they needed. And its intuitive SimpleScroll interface makes navigating menus and changing settings as simple as "roll and click".
The airplane programming includes a multi-engine control option that, when activated, allows you to independently adjust and control up to four engines or motors. You could use it to make individual run-up checks on the ground or synch propeller speeds in flight. It also makes it possible to use asymmetric thrust to tighten the turning radius of large models during ground operations.
ProTrim In-Flight Adjustments
When active, ProTrim will allow you to make small dual rate, expo, mix and differential adjustments in flight.
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 DX20 will tell you.
Pro-Class Programming for Sailplanes
In addition to extensive airplane and heli programming, the DX20 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 20 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 swashplate servos or multiple servos on a single control surface with the transmitter using a 7-point curve mix.
Wireless Trainer Link
This exclusive Spetkrum technology gives DX20 users the ability to wirelessly link up with other Spektrum transmitters and specially-equipped Spektrum FPV headsets. Once bound to another transmitter or component, ModelMatch technology will allow the DX20 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.
The DX20 also includes Spektrum's telemetry capability (you'll need extra accessories and a compatible receiver of course) and with X-Plus channel expansion too, up to an extra 8 channels can be added.
