The software for the 9XR first began development 6 years ago. Since then it has been tweaked, tuned, changed, updated and revamped by members of the R/C community into a powerful - yet easy to use interface. Our engineers designed the physical product around the R/C communities software changes and input. The culmination of all these is the Turnigy 9XR!
For many users this will be the perfect 9 channel radio straight out of the box, but there are many tinkerers out there who love modifying and pushing the boundaries of what is possible from their radio.We have factory fitted the 9XR with an AVR ISP header to simplify the development of custom software, we have launched turnigy9xr.com as the epicentre for software developers and additional community support for all 9XR users......With the 9XR we encourage it!
The 9XR is supplied preloaded with top quality software which is full of features and yet remains easy to use. Our aim was to develop a radio for you, the hobbyist,with an extensive list of standard features usually expected from a radio system 3 times the price. Our Turnigy 9XR is everything you imagined and more!

I'm old and not used to these modular systems, so could you simply tell me what all I need to buy to make the 9xr fly my plane or operate my tank.Please just list everything,(assume I have nothing),give me the prices, plus shipping to Jackson,Mississippi,USA. Start with the transmitter,and go from there.I don't need all the bells and whistles,just the basics.Thank You, Jerry Trudeau
Michael you should not need to rebind. If you are using the Orange Module it does set the mode (one of 4) on binding. The Orange Module has a button on the back that sets its modes. 3 sharp presses changes the mode. Since when you bind the module sets to the required mode, for your receiver. I came across this when I was using R615 and updated to R620. The two had different Module Settings. When I went back to the R615, I need to reset the Mode on the Module.
Only got my hands on one yesterday and I must say I really do like it. There as some little tweaks I would love to have seen made, but that's no biggy in any way at all. As far as value for money goes, this is probably the Best Deal on HK at the moment! REALLY LOVE this radio. Will be buying a second one for my son.
I've done a quick unboxing on my YT channel bmsweb
GREAT WORK HK!
Easy 5 Crowns in all areas

I`ve had the 9XR for a week and initially the programming was very difficult compared to the 9X, but after a couple of hours it started making sense. Really like how you can calibrate the voltage display.
Don`t like the carry handle/antenna, and miss not having a normal handle to attach a TX stand. I suspect there will be an optional tx stand soon as there are some holes for one.
When using a FRSKY module there is no clearance for antenna with a bigger nut, such as a 5 db antenna. See the photo in the files section. It will require some cutting of the case to make one fit. Poor case design. Although flysky module fits fine.
Overall great value for money.

what a disapointment the software on this radio lacks flexability for use as a 8 independant channel radio for robotics totaly useless the old V2 software was great for multi channel setups where independant channels are needed as for the radio itself the internal antena is causing problems bleading of signal when an external antena is used what a joke you cannot mix to antenas in one radio fix it
superbe radio, les manches sont plus "precis" que la 9x, les potards ont l'air plus costaud dommage qu'il n'y a pas de deuxieme trois positions mais bon. le module frsky DJT fonctionne tres bien avec. j'ai quand meme deux petits reproche quand meme:
1)la prise batterie mal placee. 2)manque une prise balance au niveau de la prise de charge.
sinon rien a redire, pas besoin de l'ouvrir pour la reprogrammee ou installe un retro eclairage... enfin pour l'instant.
Yeah, its there. looks great, despite of some not so important moldig failures. Now the switches that are beneeth the trimms and the cross are to weak, and activated to fast. They should use some with more mechanical resitance that make a better feeling. So as it is now, you should carefully look to what happens if you by ex. press down on the cross, you sometimes activate the left or right switch instead. A bit tricky. In the forum they reported this aso and gave an example of better switsches you can buy and exchange if you want. Despit this I have to say it a great machine for that money. Now, I hope HK reads this...Using much better switches, what gives a much more worthy feeling would the costs increase by about 10$. I am sure that all the people that bought this TX would love to have paid 10$ more for that really added Value not only in the look and feel, but also in daily usage. That radio is, looked to the functions so good that you should not risk making it worse by bad mechanical parts like the weak switches. Exactly these little somethings are the reason, why people believe in Futaba and JR, because of the feeling when having the radio in hand playing around with it. It is not really the higher worthy standard that only an expert can evaluate, it is the worthy feeling that convinces the people to have the right thing. And even for 10 or 20 bucks more this radio has the power to become the radio of the decade.
