    It would make a massive upgrade from my DX8 gen 1.

    This does look like a real step forward. I'm tempted to ditch the Dx18 in favour of one of these, it's not like i need 18 channels anyway.

    Love it, but hard to justify I have DX9 and the most channels I have ever used is 8.
    Has a heap of great features though, being Android based in theory yo could check into RC-Help on it. LOL or program your iKon/Brain using BT.

    The extra channels aren't so much what it's about... it is more about the other features... I've always considered the extra channels as gimme's or extra icing on the cake....

    I called HobbyTown yesterday and the owner said it looks like maybe March before they get the Tx. It's like they only make a few per month.

    So I went to hobby town and picked up my Tx. I get home and realize they ordered the wrong one for me. This one didn't come with the 12ch Rx. So, either I get a $100 refund or they order a Rx for me.

    So far, I like what I am seeing. The body looks good and the sticks feel good with great grip. It's slightly larger than my DX6e. I'll really need to use it for a while to have a good opinion about it. I'll also need to get an adapter cable if I plan to use it with Phoenix.

    Looking forward to your thoughts on the new Tx once you get used to it, it does look really good.

    I called and talked to hobby town today. They called spektrum and I will be getting the Rx that was supposed to come with my Tx. I'm glad I don't have to send it back. I would probably have gotten a refund if that would have been the only option. Thumbs up for hobby town!

    Anything you may want to see about it let me know. I'll be attempting to document my journeys with it. Its a different beast by far. Probably way more Tx than I need but it's there if I do.

    How does the iX12 perform in the field, any benefits or issues?
