Well, it was a little difficult connecting the DM9 module to the 9X. First I had to take it out of the box. Then I had to plug it into the back of the 9X. Then I had to turn on the 9X and bind my Spektrum/Orange receivers. I mean, jesh...you think it'd be a little easier than that.
Yeah....the above is sarcastic. The DM9 module for JR plugs right in and works with NO MODIFICATIONS REQUIRED. I couldn't of been happier. I plan on selling my MPX Evo radio (with DSM and DSM2 rf decks) soon. The only thing I can't do is fly my old AR6000/BR6000 receivers with the 9X. That's okay, I'll just sell them with the Evo.
Last note. I recommend you install the ER9X firmware. With that you can 'channel map' the output signal in the same order the Spektrum expects them...so you can make sure (at least) your throttle if failsafed as you want.
edit: Yes, I use the 9X for both my Dragon Link UHF and Spektrum receivers. Just unplug one and plug in the other and go fly.
