Special DX18 Features
New with the Spektrum DX18 is Absolute Servo travel definition that limits the travel to a programmed limited value even if the total values of the mix would create a longer throw.
Ten flight modes are available in glider mode, which covers all required parameters. The innovative Flight mode matrix gives perfect assistance for fast and safe programming.
A programmable time shift in the integrated sequencer of the DX18 activates mix functions. That enables two functions, for example Gear and Gear doors, to one programmable function.Click to Download the DX18 Manual
