Oh come on! they'll be gone in 60 seconds! We all know that. Will I order one. Sure, why not. I don't care if it's a backorder order. I'd rather not have the first run anyway, but I want the early price. I need a radio for all my BNF micros I am collecting!

I don't know what the devo protocol is but anything the 9X can do the 9XR can do slightly better.

If you hook a Devo TX module to it, of course. No idea if there's one though, but as I've seen quite a but of hacking going on with the Devo radios, somebody could probably make one.

if I need telemetry, inside modifications are needed, like on old 9x? with FRSKY module. the data pins are outside on that.

I need the 9XR desperately. The elev trim tab on my DX6i just broke so will swap it with the throttle tab that I hardlly use. The aerial is already nearly broke and held together with tape. So I know you guys will let me order the 9XR when its in stock, before you all I especially like the aerial built into the handle feature even if the handle does look like its been put on backwards!

The broken trim tabs can be repaired and the broken antenna can be replaced.

You'll have to come up with better excuses.

First link greatly appreciated so will do that trim tab fix tonite. Hope the 9XR is better build quality than my DX6 and DX6i. Im not spending any more money on Spektrum unless they come out with a cheap glider capable telemetry radio!

Wish there was a countdown timer on http://www.turnigy9xr.com/

ps trim tab on Speky fixed with a bit of plywood and ca, cost not a lot!

Here is an interview with Anthony Hand...

Flite Test - Anthony Hand Interview Part 1 - INTERVIEW (10 min 53 sec)


The owner of the site (turnigy9xr.com) is Anthony Hand.

Anthony Hand's E-Mail address is anthony.hand@HEXTRONIK.com

Hextronic makes FrSky systems

http://hextronik.com/

Therefore, I think that the Turnigy 9XR is being made in conjunction with FrSky.

FrSky is not Hextronic. FrSky is not Anthony Hand.
