Sweet, but does it support DSM/DSMX? Any module available, or we have to hack it again?

No module, no DSM/DSMX.

It does have a SLT Module built in so you can "BNF" with a lot of TX-R planes
http://www.tx-ready.com/txr-aircraft.html and any other company that uses SLT protocol.

These days with digital systems the number of channels has no direct cost connection, it is basically a software decision. However, adding channels may require HiTec to re-engineer their transmission protocol...

There is a fine 16 channel system coming to market soon for a very reasonable price, and normal radios from other major manufacuturers include up to 14 channels even though the model may be called 8.

It is possible, however unlikely that HiTec will come out with a software update for the 9x that will give it more channels.

The price is what does it for me. If it's considerably cheaper than a 14SG, I will go for the Hitec. I don't think I will ever need more than 9 channels.
