When you are investing in a new radio and considering what requirements are important to you, if weight and comfort are primary considerations, followed by the benefit of the excellent system features of ETHOS, then the FrSky Tandem X18 radio is an obvious appropriate choice.

The Tandem X18 dual-band telemetry radio benefits from an enhanced ergonomic design with rounded and more comfortable hand grips, along with an improved case design to make the radio fully stable when standing. The radio includes easy-to-reach sliders and switches, 4 standard stick trims with additional 2 extra trims added to provide more flexibility with flight attitude adjustments while operating the radio. The X18 includes further enhancements with integrated flash storage which improves and simplifies storage operation and use, and the interior of the radio has been designed with space and weight in mind, while still keeping all ETHOS setting and control features for the pilot to enjoy.

Internal 900MHz/2.4GHz Dual-Band & External Module Bay
The TD dual-band RF system combines both the features and advantages of FrSky 900MHz and 2.4GHz RF together in one system. The TD features real simultaneous dual-band longrange control with telemetry that achieves reliable end-to-end 4ms latency while maintaining a robust and high-quality signal link. The entire range of TD, ACCESS & ACCST D16 receivers are supported. The built-in TANDEM RF System supports ACCESS and ACCST D16 protocols.
In addition, the Tandem X18 includes a rear Lite version module bay to offer more options to connect external devices. FrSky welcomes working compatibility with the 3rd party products with their own developed technology following FrSky verified 3rd party compatibility-testing program.

Very good!

The screen is smaller than the x20 model, but the fit in the hand is better than the x20, and the switches are also better. I recommend it!!

Wonderful Transmitter and Excellent Service!

I recently upgraded my radios, I had a ten year old JR XG6 but honestly JRs current receivers are $100+ and their technology is now 12+ years old and not truly advancing , so bye bye JR.

I wanted a reasonably priced system with the most compact and light receivers with built in alti, vario, volt sensors for my gliders, reliable link, relative ease of programming, good ergonomics, and good looks (I know, it has to look cool!). Tried JETI (DS-12), Spektrum (DX6 G3, DX8G2), RadioMaster (Zorro), and FrSky (X18).

I am keeping the FrSky X18. The more I get to know my X18 and the FrSky system, the more I like it. FrSky is not the same company from 12 years ago with ugly radios and running on OpenTX. They are really truly pushing the envelope in technology and I believe they are now a mature and stable company with a great product line. FrSky Ethos is the operating system in their most recent radios. It is not hard to program. If you advance to complex programming (flight modes, logic switches, sequencers, etc.) is not really difficult nor it requires you to be a software engineer as there are many ready to go templates, resources and support available. Of course price is a consideration and again here FrSky offers great quality and features for the money.

The best radio i´ve own

At the time i found out about OpenTX i was curious and bought a Taranis X9 Lite yust to find out this software it´s complicated to use and learn, but incredible powerfull; I got tired of it fast due to how complex OpenTX is. I pulled the trigger on this Tandem X18 and i´ve have to say this transmitter it´s a llot better than I spected, amazing looks and construction, clean plastic parts, high quallity switches, great gimbal feeling, perfect tilting forward balance, and a llot easier software programming. Anyone interedted in OpenTX should forget about it and step forward with ETHOS, this is by far easier to use, better interface and ituitive. Thankyou Helidirect for a great price, packing and fast shipping.
