The Spektrum iX12 combines the RF backend of the DX9 with an Android-powered user interface. Will it revolutionize RC radios?
Spoiler: No.

It’s perhaps the most ridiculous, underpowered, unfinished and overpriced products Spektrum has released to date. Read on for a detailed breakdown.

Blade 350QX Review

Blade 350QX Review

Finally, we got to play with the 350QX from Horizon Hobby. There’s been plenty of reviews of this little guy, but aside from the usual “flies great” statements in hobby magazines, we wanted to find out how this RTF quadcopter compares against the ilk of a Phantom, Crius, or even a KK2.x. Curious? Read on after the break.

Spektrum DX9 adds multicopter/camera related voice output

Spektrum DX9 adds multicopter/camera related voice output

December 18, 2013 2:17 | By | Add a Comment

The latest v1.02 firmware for Spektrum’s DX9 adds several bugfixes as well as something a lot of owners will appreciate: Extra voice events for multicopter flight as well as camera operation. Specifically, words like “self leveling”, “hover mode”, “stabilize mode”, “return to launch”, “circle mode”, “head tracker on/off”, “gimbal control on/off/locked” as well as “video start” and “video stop” should prove extremely useful to multicopter and FPV pilots. Also contained are the words “Waypoint 1” all the way up to 9 – a hint at a possible waypoint upgrade for the Blade QX350?

 

All in all, a nice christmas present from Spektrum, which you can download for free from their website after you register your transmitter serial number.

Full changelog after the break.
