What boards do you want? The programmer boards are for sale @ smartieparts.com Sky North is not making any more sky9x boards because it was a money loosing proposition.
If you want to mod a 9x for the fun of the project -- go for it. If you want the features of a heavily modified 9x transmitter in an entirely new package wait just a short time ... like April at the Toledo Show when FrSky releases their 9 channel radio with a name yet to be released. This radio will be able to work up to 16 channels using S-bus and will have the entire telemetry, speech, backlight, SD card, programmer, and haptic, speaker, headphone jack all built in from scratch. The CPU is an ARM Cortex 4 and it will have a coprocessor (I think) and will keep real time using a button battery for power.
No price point yet -- but expect it to be mind numbing low for all the features it will have. It will run Open9x right off the bat -- and maybe er9x as well.
