With v2 firmware update, correcting many flaws of the previous 9X, plus inbuilt 2.4Ghz (no daggy second antenna) this is a quality, reliable 2.4Ghz system suitable for beginners and pro pilots alike. Get that locked-in feeling that only 2.4Ghz glitch free technology can provide. Ultra fast reaction times and interference-free control of your model is only achievable with this 2.4Ghz technology.
Without a doubt, the best value 9Ch system available!

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.
How do you fix "switch Error" when all switches are in their correct positions. I know how to fix "switch Error" in the usual situation I have done it many times, I have used this TX for about six months. All of a sudden I now get "Switch Error" no matter where the switches are.
Happy but not happy, I took the back off, inspected all solder connections on switches all seemed ok. Didn't actually do anything. Reassembled, plugged in battery and switch error now gone, happy. Unhappy that whatever caused switch error was not found.
This error can be caused by shorting contacts with liquid, or by loosing contact because of bad soldering or vibration. Anyway you probably solved the problem caused by liquid or any other part that shorted contacts.
I can be 100% sure that no liquid has been anywhere near the TX and there was no sign of condensation. The inside was well checked under magnifying glass for loose connections and none were found. Fault is still a mystery to me.
I can only recommend to solder all contacts once again - looks like it's poor soldering problem that appears when temperature or vibration is high. Although I would recommend do nothing until problem appears again (I hope it will never happen).
Oh ok but if you own both why confuse all the NEWER MEMBERS buy showing a total different TX with a total different menu. Please consider posting like for like in the future. I know this is harder for you but it will win you many more praises. Also I still have a few doubts in some of your procedures. I guess for any differences one can just go to You Tubes to clarify!
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

The transmitter is super. He works with Graupner / IR modules 35MHz/40MHz and Corona / TGY 2.4 GHz einwandfrei.I 've seen here Manual? http://www.skyrc.us/pdf/imax9x.pdf

Today I received my Turnigy 2.4 G & Assan module, really very nice & good quality, I binded the two receivers to the module following the Assan instructions, it was very easy, excellent sistem at a very good price, thanks HK
