Question
Flash 5X to 4X buddy box compatibility?

I did some searching, but didn't find a clear answer. I have a Hitec Flash 5X and want to buy a 4X to use as a buddy box. Any issues?

1. Most Flash 4 were issued without trainer function, check before purchase, or:.
2. Hitec Flash 4 - DIY add Trainer buddy box facility. .
3. Refer sub section "Trainer - Buddy box DIY cables and interbrand connections." e.g.
Hitec Buddy - Trainer Box compatibility & battery requirements
Hitec Trainer (Buddy) System Update - New "Stereo Plug" system and how to use
Intelligent Buddy Box Lead - JR to Hitec or Futaba & reverse
JR (aka Graupner) to Futaba or Hitec Trainer Cord
Multiplex to Hitec or Futaba buddy lead schematic
Sanwa (aka Airtronics) AM_FM Trainer Cord
Trainer - Buddy Cord Warning: Use only Hitec One Way Cord between Futaba & Hitec TX - never a Futaba cable.

If it's really a 4x then no - no issues, with the correct unidirectional trainer cord.

Yup, it really is a 4X (not a 4). I guess all I need is the cord now.
