Now, maybe they can get back to work on the AR6600T and add bi-directional SRXL.

With a Brain 2, an SPM4649T and a DX9 I get all the setup straight off my DX9's LCD screen. No computer / USB / Bt needed.
And, I get all the ECS and gyro telemetry straight to the DX9's screen in real time.

Lots of hype for something that still doesn't have the bits and pieces needed to deliver on their promises

Why do I want this?

There are a few things missing on this initial release. But, it is an initial release and probably the beginning of a whole new line of radios.

I'm sure we'll be seeing an IX 20 but there will be a an IX 18 first, of course. Horizon business managers really know how to work a market!

The DX20 is the pinnacle and end of the DX line other than for budget radios - in my opinion. The IX series is the way forward and lays the foundation for such things as cooperative flight (multiple drones for example).

Meanwhile, JR is stuck with a $2.7k radio that is no longer a tech leader and will rapidly need to pivot to bring their existing tech into a sub $1k radio if they are to survive against Spektrum, Futaba and Jeti. Again - that's my opinion (I've flown JR since 1980).

Oh, yeah... I ordered an IX12 for myself - who can pass that up!

No, but the Android side is connected to the Internet (built-in WiFi) so you can surf pornhub between flights.

Why would people want to surf on pornhub? Get a wife or gf?

Porn is the backbone of the internet. The cost of your surfing is reduced by the people DL'ng porn.

It is a fact.

Back to the radio, I watched the slick video again.
This radio has a bit to improve to catch the DJI offering with telemetry and video on-screen. Just adding internet connectivity is not really going to sell me. I have so many devices already that can do that. The one thing that seemed interesting is the blue-tooth connectivity and being able to adjust drone parameters with BetaFlight.

You should look at the Taranis for probably 1/4 of the price !!!

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Yes, I should have included Taranis and Walkera for that matter. Both have highly capable radios and possibly may even be leading the tech in certain areas.

Guys got my ix12 on Saturday, nothing but trouble. Major glitching. The latest is you are supposed to double tap power button to put it to sleep in between flights, maybe 5 or more try’s it will work. Mine is not the only one I have a friend that’s doing the same stuff. Timer announces times at random. Beware. Called horizon, they are lost on what to do. Supposed to call me back. If something don’t give, radio is going back.

The way I hear it you have to get the timing down with the double tap.

Have you seen the time it takes to boot up

I'd rather use my smartphone for Bluetooth it's always on

For myself I'll stick with a dx9 g2 for now

spending time, paying attention
