They are adding support for their new line of receivers and telemetry.

Question

Is this a safe update for a DX18v2? Like to have the latest firmware, but a little nervous....too quiet

Haven't heard anything bad about this version, but of course your mileage may vary based on how you use it.

2.06 was only out for a very short time because there was a bug in the Forward Programming for the new receivers. 2.07 fixed that. As mentioned, most of the new stuff in 2.06 pertains to features of the new receivers including a lot of updates to how the transmitter handles telemetry.

Prior to that, 2.05 was pretty solid.

In general, Spektrum has different versions of code for each transmitter. The code for a DX7 would never work in a DX18g2
If you log into your SpektrumRC.com account, and assuming your DX18g2 is registered, check the latest version for your DX18g2. You may not find a newer version or you may find a version that is even newer than the referenced by the OP for his old DX7.

Spektrum has finally straightened all that out with Airware 2.xx. All of the "Gen2" DX-series transmitters that are still supported all get the same version number of firmware. Exact features will still vary by model, of course, but at least the numbering is consistent now so that one number is current across the line.

Thumbs up

Thanks folks! I downloaded and updated the firmware on my DX18v2 to the latest 2.07.03.

Recalibrated and all is working well.
