Does anyone know if a DX18 will fit in this case?

can you post a picture with how your 18 fits in there? Looks like HH answered my question on their product page for it
No, the information in the feature stating all Spektrum and JR systems will fit was true when this case was released but with the release of the newer radios it is no longer true. I do have this corrected.

The DX18 and DX10t will NOT fit. all other Spektrum Aircraft systems will fit just fine (only two at a time of course).

If you would like a case for the DX18 our SPM6708 case is what your looking for. It is not a double case but it will protect your 18 and hold a few other goodies as well.

Thank you very much for taking the time to ask this question prior to purchasing!

Here you go.You can see I dont use the cutout foam on the bottom(just a thick flat piece and theres not a huge amount of room on the sides for foam but it holds rather securely.I wouldnt let a baggage handler slam it around but it provides plenty of protection for the way I treat it.
It is a tight fit but I have tried and was able to get a DX10t and my DX18 in the double laydown case also.

Interesting 18 you get there :-) ( pre production case)

Did you have to cut much of the foam? I'm going to order that case tomorrow. Thanks for the update.

I had to trim a bit of foam for the 18's handle but otherwise happy. the upright case is probably better protection but I wanted both in one case and prefer a laydown style.
