The stateof-the-art touchscreen technology provides information in crisp, clear detail and allows you to make precise changes quickly and easily. You literally "tap" into the iX20's programming, and model setting changes take effect instantly.

Intuitive Programming

Long-time Spektrum users will feel right at home the first time they pick up the iX20. That's because its Spektrum AirWare Touch app program is built on the same Spektrum AirWare firmware used today. The giant, color touchscreen interface simply makes menu navigation and setting changes even easier than they were before.


Maybe you're the proud owner of the most feature-packed model on the planet, maybe not. Use just four channels or all 20. The iX20 intuitive programming uses simple language and logic to help you easily set up and operate any aircraft type, and to custom-tune and add features whenever you like.

Menu Setup

The iX20 allows you to customize menus based on particular receiver features, adding or removing items that are or are not relevant. Just go into the receiver list drop-down menu and use the on/off buttons to turn items on or off (and to select channel count if the receiver you want is not listed).

Diversity Antenna System

Having multiple antennas built-in assures RF performance regardless of how the iX20 transmitter is oriented while you fly. In addition to the visible antenna, another is designed into the transmitter handle. It's a proven effective system that enhances signal reception while reducing polarization.

Built-In Camera

A camera is built into the iX20 transmitter and can be used to take still photos and videos. The lens is located in the rear center of the transmitter. It's easy to capture images of your own aircraft and add them to the Model Details menu.

Connection through SMART Technology

The iX20 is the ultimate tool for making sure your prized aircraft and equipment stay in perfect condition. It offers built-in telemetry compatibility that can give you real-time information on critical data like battery voltage, motor temperature and more.
