Question

Turnigy 9XR


According to a reply HobbyKing posted on twitter, the 9x will be replaced by the 9XR later this year. Does anyone have more info on this radio?

I was just considering buying a 9x. Now I don't know if I should wait. Do you guys think the 9x will still sell for close to the same on eBay when the r is released?

Maybe this time it will actually have a way to use the 9th channel.

Odds are it'll be released towards the end of the year... Prices will drop a bit, but remember its usually the shipping that kills everyone... I'm just gonna buy the 9x now and wait in line for the r when it comes out... More is always better with transmitters

My 9x is on the slow boat from china right now, but Id love to hear about the 9xR. If the price is anything like the 9x has been, I don't mind popping for another Tx later this year or next.

Phew, that means my FrSky collection won't become obsolete anytime soon. Definitely keeping an eye on this one.

Man, I wonder whom will be first to market - this 9XR or telemetry for the Futaba line...

You have no idea how close you are to the R point

Futaba telemetry is already listed, with the price for the screen alone more than a complete Frsky system with hub and all sensors. The cheapest sensor is temperature, $50 or close...

If those rumors were true, wouldn't it be the Turnigy 14xR instead?

It is a very good chance the new 9xr is FrSky, not Flysky. Frsky is supposedly developing a transmitter of their own. That would most likely be the new 9xr sold under Turnigy brand at Hobbyking. The FASST and DSMX compatibility is telltale to some extent.

It is fun to speculate, isn't it.
