They have the version without module in stock, both modes.

I never heard about a seller to be forced to sell a good. If they decided to drop 9X when they came with their own radios, Flysky was already announced for months before, to adjust the production accordingly.
Once canceled, a contract can't be renegotiated again only for some weeks, imo.

hobbyking is always out of stock of the 9x

happily many other vendors sell the same thing except without the internal antenna you have to cut off. so, better

Yeah I got the same tone, it was not my intention to offend so i'm sorry if i did.

On what you said RENATOA I understand that HK has the right to sell what they want. But as a selling practice I personally would think they would continue to sell the popular 9x kit and they faze out when the 9xr comes out, not before. Also i don't know the inner workings of the agreements with the manufacturer so I can't comment as I thought Turnigy and HK were the same company.

But all this doesnt really matter anyway as npre said they sell out very often, which i was unaware of...so I'm sorry

Sorry, when not native language, the nuances are misleading.

Turnigy is a brand owned by HK.
9X manufacturer is Flysky.

No, 9XR is made by an unknown yet manufacturer, commissioned by HK.

It's so popular they're always selling out. Nitroplanes has the equivalent th9x here:

Looking for FlySky module...

A friend bought the no-module version and is using FrSky. I told him he should try the FlySky module for cheap parkflyers, and he asked me where to get the FlySky module.

Any ideas?

Get one from someone before he throws it away?

I don't see why you'd want to downgrade from frsky. Especially for parkflyers, as the receivers are huge compared to the frsky ones.

You have Frsky receivers at $10-15, Flysky are $15, where's the gain ?

Sure, a brick, no failsafe receiver.
Come-on, I have here in Eastern Europe fellows with $300 monthly income doing modellbau without such compromises !
I am shocked to see people from countries with 10 times bigger income trusting in their planes RC stuff cheaper than my servos !
