The FlySky/iMax/Turnigy 9x/Eurgle 9CH radio how many out there?

Hey Guys,

I just ordered a Turnigy 9X a little over a week ago, hope to get it in a couple of weeks or so. Just paid about 40 bucks for it can't wait to get it.

Just wondering, how many of this Flysky ( whatever) product hase benn sold in the last two years or so.

10,000 or more? Just SWAG on my part could be ten times that amount....




Regards,

Bill

by the zillion.

Because of its low price, even new comers who had never used a computer radio bought this radio and scratching their heads because this radio is an advanced and complex computer radio.

Every one should read the manual thoroughly before he attempts to use it.

Ive had my Eurgle V1 for over 12 months now. I took a while to get around it, but now its easy.

The only problem Ive found is the early ones have some bad soldering on the switches. Mine were ready to break off..
the V1 modules were made my Fly Sky not FrSky so it has no freq hopping...Im upgrading the modue when its in stock..

Check out RCmodel reviews .com. Bruce gives t a testing.

Well I suspect while quite a few units have shipped, very few people are actually using them every day. Extremely powerful, flexible, open and hackable hardware, a pure delight for many of us. I love the premise of the 9x radio, and enjoy playing with the capabilities of er9x and eepe.

But for many others, it is overly complicated, cryptic, and problematic. Mr Kim says to RTFM, but of course there really is no FM, though that CopterX manual seems the most english-like manual, which is good. RTFM is fine and good, but frankly the stock firmware is clunky and awkward. I'd argue that the radios are really only useful with a third-party firmware, which enables my 9x to do things that Spektrum owners can only dream about frankly. But therein lies the rub of course. To get third-party firmware installed you have to solder wires onto the circuit board. And buy an AVR adapter, and be comfortable enough with the AVR toolset to be able to push firmware to it. Also the Turnigy decision to permanently wire their removable module into the radio was really boneheaded. The 9x really could be positioned as a transmitter unit compatible with any 2.4 GHz system out there via standard modules (DSM2, FrSky, Futaba, etc).

I purchased a Turnigy 9x V2 system from Hobbyking a few weeks ago, its in use on a flying wing slope glider and it works very well.

It came with the 9ch Rx (9X8CV2) already bound. I have not altered the Tx in any way.
I have 2 newby questions:

I also have a Turnigy 6-ch iA6 Rx - if I bind the Tx to this, will it remain bound to the 9 channel Rx?

I am returning to flying after a break of 5 years and I have some older spektrum Rxs. Will the 9x bind to a Spektrum AR6000 RX? If not what would be the best module to buy to achieve this?

I have an old Ergule 9channel ( I think a V10 only started using it about 8 month ago, not all the time but every now and then WHEN FLYING the switch error comes on, now that sucks. I can not see any bad solder joint anywhere on the switches.

I believe it should, but you would have to rebind if you go back to the Turnigy 6-ch but I'm not 100% sure
