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).
I need help, not a nerd. Have a complete quad built up to KK2 board and Turnigy 9x trans with turnigy reciever. All bought new. Now I am lost as to how to connect the KK2 with the reciever. I think that I need somw kind of wires to connect the reciever and KK2 and an on\off switch. Links to good videos would work. I got a headache from reading all the files.Thank you
I need help , I am not a nerd is how I should have said it. Looks like I will nee to go to Amazon to order them as HK USA does not carry them. I am also confused as to how to connect the reciever to the board, EXAMPLE is ch1 AIL or ELE or RUD. I know nothing about RC or electronics. Do I need an ON\OFF switch and where do I put it. Any help with regard to links to good forums and videos would be helpfull.
it will not work with those brands with out a DSM2 DSMX module, with the module it will work with them, it will also work with the cheap Orange RX's. As it comes, you can use it with the Hobby King V2 Rx's. As for buddy cords, there are buddy cords and wireless cords that will work but they take some tinkering.
Sai786 there is not any SORRY. I know some of the more pricey brands have, that option, but as yet the Turnigy (FLYSKY) type have not yet bought out a satellite type receiver! This does work fine as it. We have reports of range of over 1000m. Good Flying!
Hi, good day, I have just bought a Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter w/ Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 1) (v2 Firmware) and for some reason my channel 2 is Throttle and my channel 3 is elevator. I am a newbie, can you please tell me what I am doing wrong?? regards Mike
Check the settings, it may be set to a different mode in the software. You can configure these things anyway you want to, Typically, I just plug in the servo's to the channel that responds the way I want. In other words, plug your esc into channel 2 and your elevator into channel 3 and your good to go.
Just got a new 9X Tx. Came with a 9X8Cv2 Rx. Inserted bind plug, then battery, flashes like it should. Hold button on back of Tx and turn on. Flashing light immediately stops flashing and stays on. I think that is all good. Now I connect a servo to one port, then another, try them all and the Tx will not make the servoi move. Any suggestions or is the Tx NFG?
Its actually a bit of a pain to bind these,Bind it like you have explained, with a servo already installed, then once bound, pull the bind plug, power down the rx then power it back up with out the bind plug in it and all should be working.
I did this as you suggested and it now works!!! After fiddling with it for hours your advice was the best. I have two Spektrum Radios and binding is very quick and easy. Just wonder why Turnigy makes this process more difficult?
Does anyone know if the radio can be recalibrated to a gimball assembly that had to be be changed. I had to change replace the right side gimball(elev/ail) due to a sensor pot failure. Now it doesn't see true center when stick is centered. I notice this when setting up expo and monitoring the graffing display. both elevator and aileron show off center when stick is centered. I like the radio but this is very frustrating. Can the radio software/firmware be programmed/calibrated to see stick center?
I am not sure about the stock 9X firmware. I know you can recalibrate the gimbals if you update the firmware to ER9X. I updated the firmware in mine and I am very happy with it. If you have the skills to swap a gimbal I am sure you can update the firmware.
thanks for the heads up on updating the firmware. while looking through these posts for info on where to acquire and how to update, "IBeHoey" posted a video on how to do it without the update, way kewl. I AM curious though about the update. what improvements,or changes, if any, would the transmitter get? and where can I find the update and how to do it?
you will need the usb adaptor that hobby king sells, I think its about $5. use google to search for Turnigy ER9X. soldering the wires on the pads is the hardest parts and its pretty straight forward. there is a pogo kit for it but its expensive compared to the usb adaptor. The update makes the radio pretty much completly programable, you can even customize the launch screen with any black and white image you want as long as it is in format. I have done it on a few and it has always been great!
They usually get a shipment in every so often. The only thing you can do is put your email in the stock arrival alert box and wait. I did it like 10 times so that when I got the emails it got my attention. Also you must jump on them right when they come in stock. Also they usually won't tell you when they will get in a shipment. You must just find the pattern.
Yes, H_O_B_B_Y_P_A_R_T_Z $79.00 and it is in stock. Shipping is $6.95 flat rate. Total is $85.95 and they are the exact same radio. I know this because I have both of them and have installed Turnigy backlight kits in both of them. If this does come back in stock, the Hobbyking usa warehouse shipping charge will be $13.30 plus $64.75 for the radio for a total of &78.05. So you are waiting all this time to save $7.90. That is really sad. Oh by the way, the rx are on sale too. 6 channel for $11.20 each, and the 8 channel for $11.95 each. All of which are in stock now. But if you want to wait an eternity because you like the stickers on the Turnigy 9X better then thats your choice.
Ok, well apparently they are on sale or have gone down in price recently, since they used to be $89 plus shipping. In no means do I disagree with though. Personally I want another and when I order it i will either order it from the place stated above or N-I-T-R-O-P-L-A-N-E-S. especially since they get my orders to me in a few days since I live so close to their warehouse .
I don't see why you would not be able to use the 4x with the 9x. Personally I own a 9x but am not as familiar with the 4x. The 9x transmitter has a standard headphone jack and a standard male to male headphone jack cable should work as long as the 4xhas the same style of plug. For me this method has been sufficient
I'm new to all this (RC), and looking for my first transmitter for my first quad. What's the difference between a mode 2 and a mode 1 version of the 9x? Is one mode preferred over the other* especially for a newbie's first quad (waiting for KK2.0 flight control board to be in stock)? I noticed the mode 1 and 2 versions are both available from HK's International Warehouse (w/ extra shipping costs of course). Thanks for your help.
Hey RedBlades, and welcome to the hobby. :D The main difference between Mode 1 and Mode 2, is the placement of the throttle and elevator controls. On a Mode 2 transmitter (which is pretty much the default mode used by everyone in the United States) has the throttle/rudder on the left stick, and elevator/aileron on the right stick. Mode 1 has the throttle/aileron on the right stick, and elevator/rudder on the left stick. Which one you go with is entirely up to you, but if you live in the States, Mode 2 is pretty much all you're going to see being used. :D
It happens some times, specially when you change the MODE on your radio, so stay with the same mode so far. Try turning off and on again, starting with the radio then the KKBoard, should work. Tell us how it goes.
Kelvin this transmitter is very popular. So you can put your Email address in the "STOCK ARRIVAL ALERT" and hope you get back fast enough to get one, when they come in. Or you can do what I did and pay the extra postage and buy from the International Warehouse. Overall you are still saving on this great Transmitter and Rx system.
Getting our 9x was not easy either but this is definitely worth some waiting for. We have a few models on one of them flying fast jets to slower but more sensitive 3d planes and overall we have had no problems and upgraded with a blue backlight.
Luis come over to the Members Forum (Blue tab at top of Page). Start a topic and have a chat. You are not the first to do this. So we need to pull the Transmitter apart and have a look on what is burnt out. I am sure some one will help!
Hey Luis, unfortunately, you more than likely cooked the voltage regulators, and possibly a small SMD capacitor as well. There's a great article on RCGroups that covers how to make this repair (just google "turnigy 9x reverse polarity" and it'll be the first link.) The repair itself is going to require a decent fine tipped soldering iron and a steady hand. If you have no prior experience soldering, then I'd recommend asking someone who can, or find some old discarded electronics to practice on first. Best of luck, be sure to come back and let us know how it turns out. :D
Hi, I am having difculties to stabiliz my tricop, I seen some post that explain about the P/I Gain Limit, Stick Scalling and so on...I am playing with it, and seems to work... BUT One thing I cant get to Ceros (0) are the lectures on the Receiver Test from KK2, I try the subtrims, and Trims, from the firmware, and the fisicals black bottons. But still falling to get it to Cero reading. My radio is Tgy-9X. Can anybody point me in the Right Directions. BTW Hi to IBeHoey Those, brushless (D2830-11 1000kv Brushless Motor)are awsome. Hi to Crono1124 as well.
Hey Jorge! Glad to hear you got the tri in the air! :D As for your issue, I'd recommend re-calibrating the sticks on your 9X. It's kind of confusing to do at first but try and follow along. (I copied these steps from a forum post)
- Push and hold the right stick horizontal (lower) trim tab to the left, and the left stick vertical (side)
trim tab up.
- While holding, turn the TX power switch on.
- You will get a screen that shows the version number of the firmware, with four zeroes (0000) at the
top of the screen.
- Center both sticks in their range in all axis, and press the menu button until it beeps and release. The
screen number will change to 0001.
- Move the right stick to the upper right corner, and press menu, and you should get a beep, and the
number on the screen will change to 0002.
- Put the right stick in the lower left corner, and press menu, and get a beep, and the number will
change to 0003.
- Release the right stick, and put the left stick in the upper right corner, and press menu until the
number changes to 0004.
- Put the left stick in the lower left corner, and press menu again until the number changes to 0005.
- Center both sticks, and press menu until you hear a beep.
- Press Exit.
Once you do that, ensure that your subtrims/trim are zeroed out on the transmitter. Power everything up and try the receiver test again. If they're still not zeroed. you should now be able to use the subtrims to zero them out. When you get your tri flying right, be sure to post a video. :D
Hi, IBeHoey. Thankz again for this turorial, Im about to do doit, and Ill let you know how it goes, and for sure I will post the video. I was not sure if I was allow to ppost videos in the forum, but I can see that it is allowed. So either flys or not, I will post a video later on, so you can see whats going on.So Il come back soon with more news. Thanz again, your the best.
Hi, IBeHoey. Thankz again I already did the stick calibration, very nice , ceros on the KK2.0. BUT not really yet a nice and smooth hovering. Anyway, I am about to upload a video with some of my numbers and the tricop trying to fly, I hope You could detect whats wrong on my settings. Now btw How does self-leveling works, cz after turning it on on the radio, seems like noting happens, the tricop should self-lebel, but not, is it something else I should do to turn on the feature, after the righ-up side switch on the radio.
Can't order it - but I just got this email-
You have added Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter w/ Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 2) (v2 Firmware) to your watch list in www.hobbyking.com and this is an email to let you know that we have received a shipment just now!

Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter w/ Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 2) (v2 Firmware)
It stinks, I know, ran into a similar problem when I first ordered mine. These are very popular, and awesome transmitters so they sell out very fast. If you don't react right away upon receiving their email, and sometimes even when you do, they'll sell out. Along with having it on your wish list, it's also a good idea to put your email in the "Stock Arrival Alert" and be prepared to order right away when you receive your alert. Good luck and keep trying, when you finally get one of your own, you'll see why they're so popular. :D
Hey Robert, it'll depend on what model receivers you have. From what I recall, there are only 3 model receivers sold here that'll bind with the 9X. You have the 3 channel HK-GT2_RX, the 6 channel HK-T6A-V2 (my personal favorite), and the 8 channel Turnigy RX-9X8Cv2 which comes bundled with the Tx. I was unaware that HK even had a 4 channel receiver. As a rule of thumb, because there are also a few FlySky receivers that'll work as well, if it has the red tubed antenna on it, there's a good chance it'll work. :D
Hey Ral, I imagine it's done the same way that the solderless smartieparts programmer works. All of the pins needed for reflashing are broke out on the board with little solder pads. Just press the programmer against those pads and viola! The V2 version of the stock firmware is an improvement over the V1 firmware but it still has nothing on the ER9X firmware that can be flashed. I could write a term paper just on its awesomeness. :D
Where does everyone position the antenna? I lost an Ultra Sport .60 flying with this radio, ALMOST lost an Ugly Stik. In both cases I was using the receiver that came with the radio and just taped the antenna along the inside of the fuselage. Looked like the aircraft encountered a "dead zone" or had a brown-out. The Ugly Stik wouldn't respond for a few seconds, then re-established signal. Ultra Sport was coming out of a Split-S and just kept going straight down and full throttle.
Both cases was about 1000 ft. away as krashNburn mentioned.
I've since changed the radio in the Stik to Futaba Fasst (dual antennae) and built another Ultra Sport - Futaba in that one as well. NO glitches whatsoever.
I'm still using the 9X, but for short-range flying only. Would the range be better if I just poked a hole in the bottom of the fuaelage and dangled it out in the breeze???
In my quads and tricopter antenna is pointing up to the sky. In one of my jets it is dangling outside of the canopy. I almost lost a F9F panther when I encountered a deadzone at less than 500 feet and maybe 60ft altitude. Luckily the 9x does recover quickly and I managed to get it back in one piece.
I am buying the frsky diy kit on my next order!!
Look at product id: DIYmoudleV8HT or FRTEL. A lot of pilots say frsky is very good and some say its better than futaba fasst system. Bruce from *RCmodelreviews video shows you how to install in the 9x to make it more robust with the FrSky ACCST system.
I agree with Krash, the FrSky conversion is almost a must do for this transmitter. I have two of these transmitters, one with the FrSky module, one without. I have always thought the stock setup was sufficient enough for smaller models and I have even used it on my Quad and Tricopter for the better part of a year without any issues (this includes taking my quad up so high all I could make out was a small X in the sky). The only reason I initially did the FrSky conversion was for the telemetry features. However, this past weekend, I maidened a new FT Baby Blended and experienced my first brownout/dead zone with this transmitter. Luckily, nothing was damaged. I believe I pulled off one of the most graceful tree landings ever. It has made me second guess the stock setup though as I was flying well within range when this occurred. So yeah, after this, I'm going to convert this one over as well. :D
Don't let the low price fool you! This is a quality transmitter! It needs a few tweak to make it awesome though. I modified mine with a rechargable hobbyking LiFe tx battery pack, backlight display, firmware upgrade to er9x, and a FrSky DIY Transmitter module. Takes about a day to modify it, but you will certainly get your moneys worth and then some.
Best valued transmitter on the market. I already have 3 of these, and many friends happy with theirs after I recomended as well. I bought this one to try out the ER9X firmware conversion.
I've never had a glitch nor a failure. Order the Turnigy TRX 2.55 3s and you will fly for months without a recharge. I also add the backlight to all of mine. My favorite color is the green, it stands out the most.
