The FrSky Tandem X18 Dual Band Transmitter uses an updated ergonomic layout with an improved case design and the comfort of rubberized hand grips. With a similar layout to the X20 the X18 Tandem uses 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. 

Another key feature of the X18 is it's dual-band internal module. The TD dual-band RF system combines both the features and advantages of the FrSky 900MHz and 2.4GHz RF together in one system. The TD features real simultaneous dual-band long range control with telemetry that achieves reliable end-to-end 4ms latency while maintaining a robust and high-quality signal link. The built-in TANDEM RF System supports ACCESS and ACCST D16 protocol receivers. Additionally the Tandem X18 comes equipped with an external module bay giving the user the ability to connect third party modules to expand the capabilities of this transmitter further.

The Tandem X18 also uses an updated operating system called ETHOS. ETHOS was designed from the ground up by RC experts, providing users a powerful, intuitive, and flexible experience that can maximize the fun of RC Hobby!
