34 35 WING SPAN AUGUST Updating from a Spektrum DX series transmitter to the new NX10 Artile by Mike O’Reilly. The Spektrum DSX9, DX9 and DX9 Black transmitters have been incredibly popular with beginner through to experienced modellers for many years. With nine channels, the ergonomic design and the ongoing development of the intuitive AirWare software, this has been a ‘go to’ radio for thousands of Australian modellers. But it seems that the Spektrum team has taken a great radio and made an even better one. The Next Generation Spektrum NX10 features the very latest technology in a package that will surely appeal to DX7/8/9 users. The NX 10 adds these features to those we love about the DX9: • A backlit 3.2” colour display screen with multiple colour palette choices • Super smooth and long lasting Hall-effect sensor gimbals • WiFi connectivity for firmware updates • 3.7V 6000mAh 1S Lithium Ion transmitter battery and a magnetic USB Cable and Micro USB Adapter for convenient USB charging, and PC connectivity for Flight Simulators • Smart Technology compatibility out of the box • Home screen ticker tape display option • Foldable tx antenna • 10 flight modes in Sailpane Model Type The ergonomic design has undergone minor improvements, the new hall-effect sticks are silky smooth, and the roller wheel interface has been tweaked, which makes for a transmitter that sits just right in your hands. Meanwhile the Spektrum team do not stop adding features to the AirWare software. Some of the latest additions include: • different speed for each flap switch position • more throttle cut functionality • optional analog control of voice outputs • more forward programming functionality • more sound functions I personally like the ability to use a spare lever to give me telemetry data. Using one of the new AR8020T with its built in altimeter, I have set the rear left hand lever to give me Altitude, Flight Pack Voltage and Time Remaining at each of its three positions. This way the telemetry information I use the most is available at my touch. The Spektrum NX10 is a great second radio, or if you think that it might be time to update your older DX series transmitter. The NX10 will be perfect for just about any model as long as you don’t require more than 10 channels.
