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).
Two questions ~ can anyone tell me if the Turnigy module included is compatible with Orange RC receivers, or do I need to buy the Orange RC module for FR also? And can anyone recommend a rTX battery that fits in this transmitter ?
WC the module it comes with is not compatible with Orange DSM X / 2. So you will need to buy a module for that. (It is compatible with Hobby King 2.4Ghz Receiver 6Ch V2 SKU: HK-T6A-V2). A good battery is any Jr Style Lipo like Turnigy 2650mAh 3S 1C LLF Tx Pack (Futaba/JR) (SKU: T2650.3S.1C). It does come a 8 x AA holder so 8 x AAs will work for starters! (Lastly to change module you will need to do Module Mod "on your tubes" to move antenna to module body).
Here is the manual for this transmitter/receiver. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uploads/529 892926x11510x2.pdf
Remember if you want to use more than just 4 channels you have to go to the settings>aux-ch and assign switches to certain channels.
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.
