If you're one of the many R/C pilots looking for a radio upgrade this year, look no further. Spektrum's hotly anticipated iX12 12-Channel radio system has arrived. The transmitter is powered by Android with a capacitive 4" color touchscreen display. The radio boasts both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and can be updated in the Google Play store (which they recommend doing before using for the first time). Download the YouTube app for quick tutorial videos at the field, play some music with Bluetooth headphones, and more! The iX12 transmitter sells for $599.99 on its own, or $699.99 with an AR9030T 9-channel telemetry receiver. We have the receiver-less one on the shelf for now.

Stop in and take it for a spin, and check out the tutorial videos Horizon Hobby posted to one of their YouTube channels - they are going to be a great help for first-time users! I have the current ones below, but there may be more in the future. Here's a link to the entire playlist on YouTube. For more information on the radio itself, check out Spektrum's product page on the iX12.
