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.
So, I'm really new to this. I was given a crashed arducopter quad to build/play with and I finally have it all back together and ready to fly. The only thing I am lacking is a transmitter. It currently has a Spektrum AR7000 receiver, however the transmitter they recommend is more expensive. Two questions: Is this transmitter compatible with the AR-7000 receiver? What is the difference between the Turnigy receiver sold with this transmitter and the AR-7000 receiver?
Chris this Rc System will work your quad fine but it is not compatible with your AR7000. AR7000 is a Dsm 2 /X Receiver. It is much better than this one but the Turnigy is good enough for what you want.
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.
