Programming wise it's a leap above both of them

That's always a bonus when it comes to programming.

Nope, those three FW differences are reserved for the DX18G2 and 18QQ only.

Dose anyone know how to program a snap condition into the dx 18 without having to throw a switch in order to do a proper snap in IMAC. I have moved up to intermediate and it seems at this point the dx 18 in not capable of snap condition without a switch. At present I have to throw a snap switch on and off 8 times throughout the intermediate sequence. this is very annoying to say the least when all of my competitors using futaba radios do not have to throw a switch for snaps.

Is this for increased throws?

Yes, I had a snap condition on my DX18. You will need to use the Combo Switch function in for example an Ail-> Ail mix to to increase Aileron travel only when the proper stick input is there.

Personally, after using it for a year, I found it much easier to simply have precision, snap and 3D flight modes which only adjusted dual rates and expo for a specific class of maneuvers and then simply fly the maneuver rather than burying the sticks in the corner.

Snap switches -- an idea which really causes more problems than it resolves
along with the inverted flight switch which once adorned some tx.
If all snaps required the same inputs (which is not true) a switch may work but the setup as noted above (snap,precision and 3D) will in the long run work better for you.


I have a slider on my tx which moves from low-med to high giving three groupings of throw and expo. Tx is DX9 and I can switch groups with just sliding my ring finger The new DX20 has this setup but vertically oriented on rear of tx
Horizontal snaps require most throws - vertical up down lines MUCH less rudder and elev and if it's windy the game again changes
my suggestion, forget about snap switching it will end up driving you nuts trying to find the magic setups.

That's the way I do it so I can bury the sticks and concentrate on stopping the snap where I want it. I fly Futaba as well as a JR 12X and a DX-18QQ. The Futaba will do it on a stick position and some friends are playing with that but I've not wanted to get on that setup so I still use a three position switch as Wayne mentioned here.
