Looks good, looks as if it can almost do as much as the TH9X with ER9X firmware (can't find a running ad hiding smily)

Be interested to see the price - anything sub £2k and its direct competitor for 18MZ - although not quite as nice looking.
Interesting also that it doesnt really resemble the DX10T, which is of course a tray model....rumours have been around a few weeks now that the DX18 would looky-likey it.
Shame really, as the 10T looks cool - only IMO of course

Very nice, of course - but I'd run out of fingers and thumbs (and brain function) long before I ran out of channels.........
 
Has anyone in the real world ever actually needed 18 channels - and, more importantly, been able to operate them all without outside assistance?

Try £700 list. So about £630 on the street?

You seem to be developing a fetish for tray type trannys Tim.....first Jeti..now the 10T....
 
I like the 10 wing type configuration....does this mean we will be able to fly a Fokker Triplane, A Sopwith Triplane, a Tiger Moth & two Spitfires all at the same time....?

Thats sounds awfully inexpensive - especially comparing to other 18 channel sets.

I know...I always have liked the styling - but dont use a tray

I have trouble enough trying to fly one at time mate. Does sound though as if they have finally built a set that's gonna suit the serious glider pilot.

If I
 
a) Had the money
b) needed a new tx
c) wasn't quite so pleased with my 8FG
 
Then I'd be sorely tempted.

An up to this.......... as more new transmitters come on the market the others (older versions) will become cheaper :D
