The 9x-9xR is as good as any radio out there,even better in my opinion you can modify it anyway you like.Also doesn't answer my question.
I would also like to add I own three 9x's and never regretted it.
I fly over 8km away with my Rmilec module and have never had a single glitch.

Told me a lot I didn't know about the 9X.
See! That dude was also curious about the 3S thing. And he knows a lot more about radios than me. I wonder if they changed the hardware

It requires a JST-XH plug (i.e the white balance connector plug - specifically the 3s 4 terminal balance connector) and NOT the red two terminal type JST plug."


So I dunno,

Wow I paid extra for EMS shipping and mine is still in HK.
"The item has been handed over to air carrier on 29-Dec-2012 for departure."

That's the last time I pay extra for priority shipping.

Did you have any Lipos in your order?
That will slow things down due to shipping restrictions.

HK and China post will no longer accept lipos.
I think what happens is they pack your order up, and then when they have enough to fill the truck/container they send them by ground to Singapore.
Then Singapore post does the actual shipping of your package.
Some stuff goes Swiss Post in a similar way.

Why not, high price does not mean high quality!

And neither does low price mean low quality!

I assume they treat them as LiPos because they recently treated a couple of NiMH AAs as LiPos when I got to the shipping page.

Nope. The only thing in my order was the 9XR.

I know. The picture shows the red JST for the battery, and the inside of the Transmitter of the T-6 has a red JST.

Also, when I contacted support, they said it must have a JST connector. They also said that they didn't know what the size was.
