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.
I am using this TX with my Quadcopter. Today I turned it on inside just to try if I connected some cable right and on turning it off I didn't think of it and I turned off the transmitter BEFORE disconnecting the battery pack... the quad jumped up to the sealing and almost hit me... then somehow I managed to turn the tx on and it stopped. Lost one arm of the quad and one prop. Fortunately nobody was injured. I've had the Quad for just a week and I now learned that I have to disconnect battery and THEN TX. Is there anyway to set a failsafe in case I do the same error in futuro? Somehow this setup freaks me up...
Mode 2 makes the most sence for a heli becuase the controls you need to hover are both on one stick, your choice depents your country sometimes, some counties use same modes, like as in US mode 2.(because of when you want to use ur friends heli or plane, you wont need to synchronized)
Line of site rated range is like 1km. which is a little over half a mile. Myself with stock antennas have gotten about 1.5 miles or 2.4km out of it and could have gone further (scared at that point. haha)
it does support mixing but may take a little getting used to and watching some tutorials on how to do so. check out this video on youtube that shows the easiest way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJIklG35-rU
Yes, it does. Just select the Elevon menu, enable it, and you can enter de parameters, six in total, that defines servo centering and travel. As Robert says, getting used to what does each parameter means is tricky, but it's just a matter of trying. With the arrows in the Tx you can move vertically and you need to use the stick to move left / right to the other parameters.
I must agree it is not too hard to setup any mixing. If you do have any problems once you have, we will be happy to walk you through it. Lastly I think if anyone answers a question they should give the questioner (Justin) a LIKE. Yet here you are with 2 replies and you are still on one (SHAME)
Michael well yes you can setup 8 different models but unlike Spektrum they are not locked in. So if you do not select the correct one, you can still fly but you are in for a wild ride. Mine has 3 options also Glider, Heli and Acro (3D/Powered Planes). Good Flying.
I have now destroyed 3 fine planes with this tx. I have owned two of these and these both have had the same flaw on channel order. Also the signal has several times lost near the wlan and gsm networks causing total loss of the control and multiple crashes. I would not recommend this rx to anyone, it is not worth of the money at all. You will save on price but lost extra amount of money on planes and equiptment that is destroyed with this rx. If you are beginner you will also learn completely different channel orders than normal.
I'm the opposite, i have 2 currently in use and will buy a 3rd if need be. I use mine for Planes, Helis and Boats and have never had a "problem" with reception, even in a CF boat hull. I have lost reception on one of my planes, but that was understandable, i was trying to see how high i could get it, and it was a plane i was willing to risk.
I agree with BUCustomParts. My first one gave great flight range with no problems until my antenna was cut. i restripped antenna and soldered to board and worked great again. got about 1.5 miles range on it line of site and probably could have gone further. my second one did same thing where antenna was cut right where it comes out of the rx. i resoldered the wire and added shrink sleeving for support and works great.
Yes, of course. Mode 1 has throttle on the right hand and aileron on the left* mode 2 is reversed. In the case of this Tx, you can switch modes easily. You just change the position of the centering spring (you need to open the Tx for this) and select mode by soft. You may choose the type that is better for your comfort, or if you have friends that do RC, you may choose the same radio mode so they can teach you. Good luck!
I have downloaded the manual which is critical of the firmware. Does this refer to the old firmware or the new v2 firmware. If the manual is for the old firmware has the new firmware altered the setting up instructions at all?
Hi Mike, thanks for credit. I don't know what are the differences between V1 and V2 firmware, but I referred to this manual once when I still have the default firmware and it seem to reflect the menus of the current v2 firmware. I didn't last a week with the default firmware though, as a newbie, I rely on youtube tutorials for guidance and there are lots of tutorials for er9x than the default firmware so I upgraded mine to that wonderful firmware.
Thanks again for further info. I haven't purchased one of these transmitters yet but the comment by Ville above is a bit worrying. I don't think there are any cell phone towers near where I mostly fly but loss of signal isn't supposed to happen with these 2.4Ghz systems
Question, I have changed mode1 to mode 2 on another transmitter, can I do the same with this one, change it from mode1 to mode2? The reason is becase mode1 is on stoc while mode2 is not. or is it worth to wait mode? My current transmitter is broken and I need one quite urgently. thanks in advance
Hello to all! Somebody can tell me how to settle(adjust) the gyro earnings(gain) to 9 X, the note is not very clear in on this subject. On my FUTABA I settle(adjust) simply since " Travel adjust " but on 9 X there is a function(office) " Gyro sens(direction) " whom I have difficulty in understanding. Thank you for your help(assistant)!

Hi there, I bought the Turnigy 9x and I'm setting up my F450 quad with FY-DOS and I don't understand how to setup the 3 positions switch on the radio. This is my first quad and if I dont set it up I have no way to find out so it must be right the first time!
Is it the same kind of setup like the NAZA 3 position switch? I made a bit of confusion with the videos on youtube I guess.
not sure of exact range but i know mine has gone about 1.5 miles without any problems. ive seen some fly 2 miles using this same tx/rx combo and could probably gone further if it hadnt been for the battery limitations.
hi there can someone please help me out?
Well I've got a spektrum radio and 900mhz 800mw fpv gear,so if i stay under 500m range i've got no problem,but as u can image do fpv under 500m is boring , i don't have any problem with 900mhz fpv gear i'm planing on change a radio sistem!aome peoples tell me to go with 9xr and frysky module and others say i should go with OrangeRx Open LRS 433MHz so what you peoples think about? if i do buy a OrangeRx Open LRS 433MHz TX-rx what i need to do to get it work?
I can't tell exactly what you need to plug the 433 MHZ module, but the local FPV group here uses that module for FPV and the say it works great. In fact, with a yagi antenna they've done 65 km long flights, and 3.5 km altitude...
We have tried it with the 2 radios and they dont seem to be working linked together. We have tried everything to get them to work. Aparently i just found that if you remove the rf module from the back of the slave unit (the one the student is using) then it will work. Will have to test this on the weekend. We even tried hooking it up to a JR set and also a Spektrum set to no avail.
I tried the other way, to make the 9X the Tx unit and hooked up my old 72 MHz radio to it, feeding PPM pulses. Cable was plugged in after the 9X was powered on. The trainer function was enabled on 2 channels. If I touch the trainer switch I can control the channels from the 9X, but when it's supposed to be under control of the other Tx, it doesn't work. Maybe it's a matter of signal power... I checked the schematics of the Tx and it's supposed to work. I'm sorry, but I can't make it work either...
Hi guys i have tried to link up mine and another 9x with the trainer cable, and have had no luck. The radio powers on when the cable is plugged in, and you can see the mode change in the trainer setting when flicking the switch.
I have seen on you tube that you have to solder a 1Kohm ressitor inside the Tx module to get it to work. However there was a post on there saying that the er9x firmware has an option* ''Enable PPMSIM'". I have not been able to find this option and i was wondering if these radios have the er9x firmware in them. The radio is only a few months old, and apart from that is amazing.
Am willing to do the solder trick as it is pretty easy job, just wondering if it is still required.
The Tx that powers itself when you plug the cable is normal, in this condition the RF module is not powered and the cable is used for output. The second Tx you need to turn it on first before plugin in the cable, and this Tx is the one that feeds the RF. And in the menu you go to the trainer menu, enable it, and enable the channels you want your trainer to control. That's as far as I got, I don't have 2 of this Tx to test it (unluckily, cause they're great) but in theory you can make it work with any other Tx that has PPM output. The power-on by itsef part, I am sure is like that because that is how I use the simulator cable (just plug it in and go, no need to power anything, and no RF output), and you can check it out on the circuit schematic. also, there's no need for the 1k resistor, I also got my 9X last year and it doesn't need the mod, you can see the pulses out of the cable with an oscilloscope. good luck!
It works with 8 AA batteries, it comes with the holder for them. But any old 3S lipo that can fit the compartment will work very well* even if the lipo can't work on your plane or heli, it will work ok here because of the low current need of the Tx. If you have to buy, take a look at "Turnigy 2650mAh 3S 1C LLF Tx Pack", or "HobbyKing 1500mAH LiFe 3S 9.9v Transmitter pack". This LiFe pack need a charger for Life, a Lipo charger can't do it.
with power off, plug bind plug into rx. power on rx and light should blink inside. now hold bind button on tx and flip switch on while still holding button. light on rx should turn solid. they are now bound. power of both and ready to go.
I bought this to supersede the HK-T4A transmitter. It comes as a bare transmitter - no batteries, no charger, no instruction manual, and no module (not even 72MHz). This is all OK, as I only use Lipo batteries, hate the cheap transmitter chargers, and ordered an Assan 2.4GHz JR-type module along with the order. Hobby King were up-front with all of this from the start, except the lack of a manual. The manual is available online, as the IMax 9, and the lack of a manual saved me further shipping dollars - a big factor in ordering something cheap.
The good news, it's not a cheap-feeling radio. The gymbals are really smooth, almost to the same standard as my Futaba 9C. Even the throttle ratchet is quite smooth, which is essential for heli flying. The case is plastic, but it feels nice in my hands.
Control with the Assan module was absolutely locked in. The availability of exponential restored my Shocky back to the smooth flying wonder I had originally built (with the HK-T4A I could not get it to fly smooth - I've become addicted to expo). The precision was also really noticable as I fed in gentle "tickles" on the sticks. Outstanding!
The misses (deduct one star): IF YOU USE EXPO YOU CANNOT USE DUAL RATES!!!! Even 1pcnt of expo disengages any dual-rate settings, even though the rate settings are still there on the screen. I was initially really disappointed about this, until I realised that I hardly ever use dual rates. If you depend on dual rates, this is a FATAL

This 9 Channel Transmitter is excellent, I am using this unit with the FRFRY 2.4Ghz module (JR compatible) and it work smoothly, I prefer the FRFRY over the Corona because the FRFRY is a TRUE Frequency Hopping system (very much like the FUTABA FAST) and is smoother on the servos, Also tested the Dual Rate and Expo and contrary to some reviews in my case work perfectly, remember to channel one at the time (expo or dual rate) and get out of the me
