What to buy
« on: October 07, 2018, 16:53:54 PM »
Thinking a Horus Tx is a possible candidate to replace my Spektrum DX8. Any advice as to which version to buy? Just found the T9 Hobby site, so will be using that shop rather than HK.

ive owned the x12 and x10s. The 12 was bought from hobbyking and went back as faulty with a known issue and was refunded. I replaced it with the 10 which is lighter and feels better to handle and never regretted it.
After issues with hobbyking with the 12 Id advise using t9 hobby sport whos the uk importer.

I use a 12 but I have the aftermarket bars so it hangs off a shoulder harness.  It's a little more bulky than the 10, something to think about if you have small hands.  The 12 has the screen at the top, the 10 at the bottom but with verbal readouts that's not really an issue.  Accessing the battery in a 12 isn't easy as there isn't a battery hatch.  It's NiMh and the charger is built in so no fast charging.
Definitely T9 Hobbysport, excellent service and Richard knows his onions when it comes to FrSky.
flying's easy - it's getting it back down in one piece that's the hard part

Thanks, assuming that the X10S is the way to go now.

Any recommendations on the Rx type for a large IC powered model?
