The last kick in the nuts was the release of the iX20 followed by the Spektrum ads that refereed to the iX12 as (basically) an entry level TX.
I'm glad I kept my DX9.
With the release of the iX20, the iX12 was exposed for what it REALLY was - a beta test unit.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see an iX15 Announced or released sometime soon, followed not too long after by the end of the iX12, or at least a major “V2” hardware update.

The android hardware on the iX12 is simply not powerful enough to be reliable.

I had an iX12, after 3 months I went back to a DX9, and just recently ditched Spektrum altogether in favor of Jeti.

Spektrum is a decent company - but the iX12 was a turning point for me. Once I realized I was providing free beta testing at the expense of my overall enjoyment of the hobby, not to mention wondering each time i turned on the radio if it would be a “good day” or a “bad day” - something had to change.
