Turnigy 9X - beware of the hook

Today I happen to open the central hook, where you would normally hang the TX to a lanyard, and found that it is far from secure. The thread is badly made and is very loose inside the nut that retains it, in fact there is very littl hold. During use it could easily detach from the TX body and the whole thing may drop down.

Check your TX. if anybody has a good spare one they don't need, please let me have it, I will be glad to pay for it

what is "central hook"?
What is "lanyard"?
What "thread"?
What "nut"?

Were you trying to dry your TX by hanging it from clothe line under the sun?

What were you trying to do? Why do you need a replacement?

I'll translate

Central Hook = Neck-strap ring (where the neck-strap attaches)

Lanyard = Neck-strap (Goes around your neck and supports TX)

Thread = Helical groove on cylinder face to convert rotational motion to translational motion.

Nut = internally-threaded piece to engage with externally-threaded screw


What is so hard to understand about his terminology?




I'll translate again:

The neck-strap attachment piece has a threaded portion that does not engage properly with the threaded nut. It is dangerous because if you are using this neck-strap to support the transmitter, it has a high risk of failing and the transmitter dropping to the ground and breaking. He'd like to fix it with a replacement part.

Many thanks Pat for the exact translation, indeed that was what I was trying to warn people about. It may be a singluar manufacturing default in this case but you never know, so I am trying to warn people to double check theirs, theerby avoiding an unnecessary accident

Singapore people use English. Your English needs translation.

Learn RC terminology.

I don't use neck strap anyway. Need not worry about.

I must admit that central hook was an invention of mine for lack of memory of what it is called, however lanyard, nuts and thread are common words and need no translation. The only problem is that I have too many hobbies, not just RC and the convention in each are different, tbe lanyard is usually used in torches and mountain equipments, as to nuts and thread, well everywhere really

By the way I live in Singapore but am not Singaporean, if I had used Singlish you WILL need translation

Yeah I think it is Mr Kim whose knowledge of common English terminology (RC or otherwise) is lacking. After his first post I was pretty sure he was joshing you but after the last post of his, I wonder.

Thanks for the heads up anyway. I have not had the problem with the eye hook ring thing so far.

Thanks for the heads up - I will inspect mine before I use the neck strap (hopefully that is the politically correct term from an engineer that despises the English language because it is completely illogical)
