The new Spektrum DX6 to be releaesed in June 2014 is far cry from the old DX6i. Instead of having to content yourself with a handful of settings for a couple of model types, the new DX6 gives a variety of programming features for airplanes, helicopters and sailplanes. You also get other extras like voice alerts, a wireless trainer link and enough internal memory of up to 250 models.
New features include –
Programmable Voice Alerts
With voice alerts, the DX6 will allow you to keep tabs on important functions without ever taking your eyes off your model. They can be programmed to call out what flight mode you’ve chosen or report telemetry information on demand. If an alarm goes off, you won’t have to look at the transmitter display to see what’s happening. The DX6 will tell you.
Wireless Trainer Link
The wireless trainer link gives instructors the option to wirelessly ”buddy box” with another DSM2®/DSMX® transmitter. Once bound to another transmitter, ModelMatch™ technology will allow the DX6 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again. A big improvement on the trainer switch on the DX7i transmitter which made your thumb go numb after 5 minutes !
Airplane, Helicopter and Glider / Sailplane Programming
Glider / sailplane programming is now included in the DX6. Five available flight modes, 4 wing types, 3 tail types, a flap-to-elevator curve mix – it has all this and more. All can be programmed using the SimpleScroll™ interface.
250 Model Memory
A 250 model memory is more than enough for the majority of people. The model memory menu is easier to navigate too. Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will be display so you dont have to scroll through dozens of empty slots !
The new Spektrum DX6 supports the most popular Spektrum telemetry sensors
Most model shops are selling the DX6 along with a full range AR610 6-channel DSMX Receiver.
