What’s better than a fantastic new transmitter from Spektrum? How about one that talks?  The new 9 channel DX9 has a lexicon of over 300 english words to give you spoken feedback so you never need to look down when flying!  It will be available in September for £334.99 RRP, but in the meantime, checkout the specs and photos provided to us this morning from Horizon Hobby.

Precision now has a Voice
While the DX9 adds new features over predecessors the centrepiece of its leap forward is its
incredibly advanced voice alert system. In fact, with its lexicon of over 300 words, numbers
and phrases, it’s quite possibly the most advanced system of its kind ever seen (or heard)
in a handheld transmitter. The DX9 comes out of the box with English voice alerts, but other
languages are available for download.
Wireless Trainer Link
While the DX9 does have a trainer cord jack, instructors have the option to wirelessly “buddy
box” with another DSM2/DSMX transmitter. Once bound to another transmitter, ModelMatch
technology allows the DX9 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.
Forward Programming for the Future
This remarkable new feature will be available with the release of DX9 AirWare software
v2.0, shortly after the transmitter is shipped. What it will do is equip DX9 owners for a new
generation of Spektrum components that can be programmed directly through the transmitter.
250 Model Memory
The DX9 is equipped with enough on-board memory to store 250 model setups. This
enormous capacity means rarely, if ever, will there be a need to juggle models between
transmitter memory and the SD card. The model memory menu is easier to navigate too.
Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear. It won’t be necessary to
scroll through empty slots or move models around if one is deleted.
An Awesome Suite of Programming Features
When it comes to programming features, the DX9 has more in common with the DX18 than
it does with any other transmitter in its class. The tried-and-true SimpleScroll programming
interface makes menu navigation easy and all information is presented in crisp, clear detail
on its backlit LCD screen.
