So, I got a FlySky module for my Turnigy 9XR, the radio I am using to replace my Spektrum DX7s pile of scrap (POS). The 9XR is a nine channel radio with a whole lot more control capability than the seven channel DX7s could ever pretend to have, and even more than the DX8 claims.

The only thing is, in order to get the 9XR to properly control my Syma X1 mini quad I had to reassign the channels to make the 9XR look like an old 72 MHz FM radio. If you are using a 9XR to run a quad set your radio up as follows:

Page 5 [MIXER]
CH1 XXX% AIL
CH2 XXX% ELE
CH3 XXX% THR
CH4 XXX% RUD

Page 11 [TEMPLATES]
Channel Order: AETR

After that yer quad should respond properly. You may still have to play with servo reversing (had to reverse elevator on mine) but it will be pretty obvious. Also, on my Syma I put the mixer settings all the way up to 125% to try getting more control out of the quad, but it only has so much.
