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.
Yes. The AA battery holder is included with the TX. But AA battery drains so fast that i dont recommend to use it with them. Its better to use it with a 2S lipo. Im using it wit 3S lipo but if you accidentaly leave te radio on you wil loose 1 cell at least.... (I broke 2 packs of cells ). If you use it with 2 cells when batt becomes too low the radio sotop working but the cells can survive. *-).
Inside the radio there is a linnear regulator (LM 7805) so the extra power provided by the 3 cell is wasted on the regulator, so you loose it.
Comes with removable BATTERY HOLDER for 8AA batteries. But better to use 3S lipo instead. I use 3s Rhino 2620 thransmitter pack, this is most capacitive lipo which fits 30x32x100 battery compartment... you can use any other tx lipo pack which fits (dimensions are specified for each lipo under product details)
You may need to change battery connector or use adapter. (connector is the same as 2s lipo balance one, I harvested one from old dead 2s lipo)
Be carefull TX do not have reverse polarity protection! Double check polarity before plugging in
I have an issue with the ch1 on this transmitter 9X. Indeed there is no signal outing of the transmitter.
I checked using the Display function, and nothing move on the Aileron (ch1).
I swapped the 2 sticks box and this not coming from the sticks.
It is after.
Could you help me fixing this issue?
Nothing move? Stay at min, stay at max or stay at zero?
If you swap MODE from 2 to 1 there is no signal on same channel or on channel3?
If same then more likely it's mixing config for ch1.
If faulty is ch3 after mode switch to mode1 then more likely faulty stick pot or stick connector.
There may be many reasons for this...
Simpliest is configuration... someway you may switch it off in mixer settings...Next ... have you calibrated sticks? Do not remember exactly as I reflashed my 9x with er9x firmware but if I remember rigth even stock firmware shows raw sticks values while or after calibration...
Third simple reason is bad contact somwhere in connection from gimbal pot to main pcb connection...
I'd give this radio a 5 star rating but there are a few minor things that subtract points. -One is that putting the batteries is a hassle, the 8 AA cell holder is OK, but the cable gets on the way of the cover and it takes a while to be able to close it, there's a lot of pinching of the cables involved so I shouldn't wonder if the insulation fails sooner or later requiring a replacement of the cables. -Second is the very annoying and loud BEEEEP!!! you get with every-single-click you do on the buttons, seriously stressing to set up the radio at home, not good for conjugal life. To fix that I cut the leg that goes from a transistor to the speaker and added a 220 Ohm resistor in between. -Third, no manual comes with the radio. -Fourth setting up a V-Tail was a mind bending affair, I succeeded but I couldn't grok the logic of the procedure.
Besides those things it's a good product.

I purchased this transmitter & Assan XJ8 module from HC. First I got around the switch error bug (thanks to that reviewer) For me the Assan XJ8 just flashes red once on start up, but gives no steady red LED & will not go into pairing mode. Assan say they don't know the problem & suggest putting XJ8 in another TX (I don't have one) Anyone know how to test if TGY 9X or Assan is the problem? Thanks

Great range - over 3000m, but realy to big receiver. Also dont like to small battery compartment, and antenna linked with wire. You Also can't mix with AUX cahnnels - you can oly mix first 4 cahnells. No manual - It could be at least link at this product to download manual for Turnigy 9x. Also don,t like that this transsmiter in almost never in stock, or that there smaller 6 ch receivers I waiting for more 3 months So from me only 3 stars.
