ok I will bite, do you have the transmitter module in the back?

do you have matching frequency receiver?

is your radio on PPM?

has your new radio had the antenna soldered on, I do not remember if it was the 8 or the 9, that had that issue, was a simple soldering of the wire too the antenna!

last but not least are your batteries charged?

ok! mine when turned on, has both a red light for power! and a green light for RF!

now I have a couple modules, on a couple different channels but they are all 72mhz

do not quote me, but I think if you are running 35mhz, then someone has converted that radio too ground frequency!

unless your receiver in on the same frequency and channel, your not going too get a connection!

not sure where you got your radio! but as I mentioned, the RF module in the back, should say 72mhz with a channel number on it!

when I pull my RF module out, the green light does not come on!

so I would say you need a new RF module, that match's your receiver!

seems the only bad reviews are the one's not using Futaba!

couldn't hurt!

and if you get it working, I highly recommend a 2 cell life transmitter battery! as the 9C is an amp hog!

The 72mhz is not used in all countries. I didn't notice him say where he is.
