    Yeah, i did say the price was a little on the 'eye-watering' side:wink:

    Seems like they are trying to compete head on with the likes of Jeti, including on price. I think they could struggle, people with that much money to spend will usually be looking for an up-market brand name to go with the up-market price.

    I did but sold that one to repair my 500....been looking into organ and limb re growth research though....currently testing new drugs for that. So far that extra arm that grew out of my shoulder has been handy for top shelf items though! But is a pain trying to find shirts that fit...,:(

    Wonder if the 20 will drive the price of the 18 down?

    I'm not sure it will make a lot of difference. The price is so much higher than the DX18 that it puts itself into a different price bracket. Possibly some DX18 owners will upgrade which might put some more DX18's on the used market?

    If that radio is 1200 then tour better off with a jeti or vcontrol. The only thing I can think of that would fit that radio is a large scale plank. Helis not so much.

    I picked my DX8G2 off Amazon for right around $200, just before Xmas.
    I just got it updated today and sync'd with Phoenix.
    Cant wait to bind with a bird and check it out!

    In Australia the DX8 is not real bad at A$ 540.00 but the DX20 is over the top at A$1,999 to put that in prospective I paid A$316 for my DX9 with AR9000 and TM when they were first released.

    Today US$ 1.00 = A$ 1.30 back when I bought mine US$ 1.10 = A$ 1.00

    Looks like I'll take the DX9 to the grave with me, but not for a long time I hope.

    Ya, I'm still not seeing a reason to upgrade from my DX8 Gen1
