I've not had any firmware update email notices from Spektrum for several years and it's not because I do not have a number of devices registered with them including multiple tx's and rx's.

Don't know why they advertise that they'll send you an update anymore, it worked initially but it's been INOP for quite some time now.....

as for the ix20, price difference is 800 U$ without metal gimbals
it will likely boot up faster because it's got a newer processor but the other processor used for Android interface it's pretty much similar as the ix12 one, pure chinese and quad cores only.... this is why they never mention anything about internal hardware.


with 120 bucks you can get a Samsung phone OCTA CORE, AMOLED DISPLAY, 13MP REAR CAMERA.

Looks like they have the ergonomics right! Lets see how the first season goes.. I bought the last dx20 available in north america last season and it has been good so far other than the sliders took some getting used to. I dont really want it to play music etc.. just to keep wiggling the surfaces to match the sticks...

The perception that they’re less subject to wear and manufactured to higher tolerances

Perception is the correct word.

Agreed. It’s like the entire “made outside of my home country” bs that people ascribe to, all the while merrily posting on their Chinese made phone.

Some of the best TXs I've had , were plastic gimbals. Looking forward to the ix20

Amen my friend. The quality of the gimbal feel isn’t determined by the material they are made from.

It's because they generally are not. Like said, it's the perceived notion that because it's made of metal automatically makes them better in every way. My Multiplex Royal Evo has some of the best feeling gimbals in the worth in my own opinion, and they're made of plastic.

right question is: why did the DX20 had metal gimbals and the IX20 doesn't or at least an upgrade as option...

wood vs fiberglass
plastic vs metal

different choices for different people.

Winter is almost here and many people are already waiting for the JR T64 (ETA spring 2020)
once it's released then we'll be able to compare both systems based on Android
