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.
whom as. who does not like the look of the new transmitter ...who does not like you need to purchase a separate module and receiver. but 9xr have new firmware/ hve more settings. 9x - sales with transmitter module and receiver. 9x will be cheaper than buying 9xr and buying a transmitter module with receiver
Mohsin I get it. The S3 Sport uses 3 servos. On on Rudder. And one on the Left elevator and one on the Right Elevator. Then you mix using the Elevon Setting. Then you Left and Right Elevator become Elevators and Ailerons. In fact I have a very similar plane and I made the rudder fix and only need to servos.
you need two servos on elerons and one servo to ruder. elerons will be used as elerons and elevator. in transmitter setiings you will need setup elevons.
youtube have many information how to setup elevons. one of them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgLPAIPMptA
hermit i did not start the mig 29 but i am making this plane in this link which i already mad the kit off it hermit i did not start the mig 29 but i am making this plane in this link which i already mad the kit off it : www . stratus-productions. com /s3sport.htm
I use this Tx/arx for my tricopter. Yesterday i tried hooking this up to my Bixler and tried using a separate mode which is of glider type rather than heli.
When i connected the battery to the plane, all servos started moving like crazy and after few seconds the plane started to move at full throttle.
When i tried moving back to the heli setting it was ok.
Can you help explain what the reason for the difference could be?
Is it a matter of reversed throttle maybe?
Q2: when i select mode 2 on the "stick mode" option, i get a question of "Throttle reverse?". The only button that works on the Tx at that point is Menu which i guess answers "yes" to the above question. Is there a way to answer "no"?
Krimbu for question No2. The "Yes" is Menu and "Exit" is No. Now the 1st question. There are 3 Types you can set your transmitter in. Heli, Glider and Acro (which is for plane). So please use that for you Bixler not glider. The glider type is for a glider without a motor. Also I use Acro Type on my Quad.
Thanks for you reply. I will try that. The problem is that the Exit button is not functioning properly on the Tx... I have to press it endless times until it reads one of these presses...
One more q please: when I press on menu the first time on tx, I get two options:" menu" and "settings" I think(I don't have the tx with me now ):
The tx can handle multiple configurations in "menu" (for 8 planes I think). Do the "settings" on the right menu change whenever I change from one plane to the other on left menu?
Krimbu glad I could help. You will find the Buttons gets better the more you use them. My Menu Button was like that too! Secondly YES you pick 1 to 8 model (you can change the name, it does not need to be mode 1 to 8), and you set each up. You can copy one setting to another. So if one model is only a little different you can cheat a bit!
it does have a timer but counts down not up. go into settings and set how long you want. to start timer you use the back right switch on the radio. click once and it starts count down, click again to pause timer.
Well I set mine to 11 minutes. I have a flight time of about 10 to 11 minutes. Once I take off I start the timer and it counts down. When it gets to one minutes left of flight time, the timer starts to beep. I then have a full minute to consider landing.
This Tx is great for the price. With the original module you can reach probably about to 1km. For FPV it would be better to upgrade the TX with the FrSky Module to have a minimum of 1,5km. Hope this helps *)
Pilot Pete so in many more advance Transmitters (Tx) you can fit a Module that lets you change your Tx to work with different brand receivers. So the idea is you have one controller (TX) and you can change it by fitting a different modules. The Module configures the SIGNAL coming from the Tx. I could go on and write pages about MODULES but I need to know what else you want PLEASE.
Actually module is RF part of transmitter.
So your system contains TX controller, RF module and receiver. Cheap and simple TXs have RF part build in, the more advanced has it as exchangable plugguble block (usuallu on back side). The form factor and electrical connections of module is almost standard (2 types only JR type and Futaba type). Since 2.4GHz band has digital RF protocol between TX and RX, each brand have different standards for communication between module and RX.
So you can't bind one TX with other brand RX because of protocol incompatibility. Well, but you can replace completely RF pair (Module and RX) if you want to get more advanced features, like for example FrSky telemetry capable set of TXmodule/RX.
Mohsin so what mig 29 are you making. Please. If you are only using 3 servo then I think it must be the simple one. So you would have an ESC, one servo on you Rudder and Two servos one Elevator / Aileron.
Elevon setup is what you need if you are going simple!
Richard the 9XR is the upgraded to the Turnigy9XV2. It is better in many ways. You can download manuals for both and it is clear the 9XR is better but it comes incomplete. The Transmitter we are looking at on this listing is complete. It will work straight out of the BOX. The 9XR is just a incomplete Transmitter. To make the 9XR work you need to buy EXTRA a module and a receiver. Do you need more!
The firmware used on the 9XR is one that hobbyking have ripped of from the guy who made the ER9X and it is to 99% exacly the same preloaded in the 9XR TX.
They have not give him credit for the software one single bit wich is a real discrase and they are at the same time not allowed to use the software to make money of it as they by program the TX with it and then sell. This is due to the GNU license that sofware is under because it´*s free of use but not to earn money on it as they do.
Hobbyking however doesn´*t give a single **** about that!!
how to connect to receiver: 1ch - eleron1, 2ch - elevator, 3ch - esc with motor and battery, 4ch - ruder, 6ch - eleron2. in transmitter setting need ACTivate FLAPerons. choose 100% (this need for enable eleron2)
Mar11 do you want a Training cable or a Buddy Cable?? If you want a training cable (one that goes to you PC) then USB Simulator Lead for Turnigy GTX3 Transmitter - VRC Sim Compatible (PRODUCT ID: GT-USB-SIM ). Every says it work on the Turnigy9X BUT you must unplug the module or do the 1k resistor MOD!
Mar11 SORRY. You want a "BUDDY BOX CABLE". I know it is so you can train another flier but it is called a BUDDY BOX CABLE. Please if you cannot find a lead then maybe a in plane buddy box. These are cool and very safe and no wires to trip on. Wireless Buddy Box System 4CH (Dual RX Controller) (SKU: DUAL-RX4-01 ).
Mar11 you need something like this:::: JR and Spektrum Trainer Cable (Buddy box Cable) 2.1m (SKU: TRA-CBL-JR01) seem to be the one you need! If you read the reviews they say they work with the Turnigy 9XV2
new thanks for your help but what u r saying is not true.. cause if u unplug the usb you will get a male to male cable just like the buddy box cable..and i plugged it yesterday in my 9x and it started by it self.. will try the training thing soon.. anyway thanks for your help..credit gvn
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.
