Important. The TURNIGY 9X has been reflashed with the new v2 firmware, fixing previous menu and mixing issues. This firmware flash is only available from our TURNIGY 9X system as we flash each unit in our office before it is shipped. Purchases of any other rebranded version of the TURNIGY 9X will not have the latest firmware and patches (even the OEM factory does not have these updates).
NOTE: "SWITCH ERROR" means you have one of the switches in the wrong position when you turn the radio on. It is not a fault.
not sure for actual ranges but check Orange LRS set or Miltek LRS solutions. Alternatively use RF booster to get 5-10km range with any tx/rx set... (wifi boosters can be used as it has same 2.4GHz band )
Search r c g r o u p s site for booster discussions topics.
I would not go more than 300m on this because of other RF noise. The output is in the range of 10mW. For longer range I go to OrangeRx or FrSky with 100mW output. For more than that I would use "2.4Ghz 2000mW Radio Signal Booster Set" PRODUCT ID: 571000024-0 but it will be illegal in my country.
Unpredictable.. depends on how lucky you are. Stock tx/rx set may work up to 800m - 1km and some people report even more... but some people complaining on signal loss at 100m and even less...
If you want really stable and reliable system then just throw away stock TX module with RX and replace it with something better... I use Frsky DJT tx module with FrSky RXes on my t9x and really happy with it.
I'd give this radio a 5 star rating but there are a few minor things that subtract points. -One is that putting the batteries is a hassle, the 8 AA cell holder is OK, but the cable gets on the way of the cover and it takes a while to be able to close it, there's a lot of pinching of the cables involved so I shouldn't wonder if the insulation fails sooner or later requiring a replacement of the cables. -Second is the very annoying and loud BEEEEP!!! you get with every-single-click you do on the buttons, seriously stressing to set up the radio at home, not good for conjugal life. To fix that I cut the leg that goes from a transistor to the speaker and added a 220 Ohm resistor in between. -Third, no manual comes with the radio. -Fourth setting up a V-Tail was a mind bending affair, I succeeded but I couldn't grok the logic of the procedure.
Besides those things it's a good product.

I purchased this transmitter & Assan XJ8 module from HC. First I got around the switch error bug (thanks to that reviewer) For me the Assan XJ8 just flashes red once on start up, but gives no steady red LED & will not go into pairing mode. Assan say they don't know the problem & suggest putting XJ8 in another TX (I don't have one) Anyone know how to test if TGY 9X or Assan is the problem? Thanks

Great range - over 3000m, but realy to big receiver. Also dont like to small battery compartment, and antenna linked with wire. You Also can't mix with AUX cahnnels - you can oly mix first 4 cahnells. No manual - It could be at least link at this product to download manual for Turnigy 9x. Also don,t like that this transsmiter in almost never in stock, or that there smaller 6 ch receivers I waiting for more 3 months So from me only 3 stars.
