Let alone to re-flash one.

Big audience wants easy to use pre-programmed mixes, wing types etc.
But I found er9x much much easier than the stock 9x firmware. Despite the stock 9x being such a difficult firmware it still sold countless thousands. And with the er9x people will post their models online for download anyway.

RC beginner
stock firmware works out of the box but er9x dont. requires all kinds of calibration and fiddling to get same functionality as stock. if they fixed the defaults and spent as much time finishng docs as adding features it would be much better. unfortunately software engineers sometimes cant see the forest for the trees.

Me too but there are also lots of people who prefer the command line over GUI on Linux because it it so much easier and faster than the windows imitation. Tell that to Joe Average who has hands full tuning the channels on his new TV.

That was also my first reaction. Anyone knows when X9D will be available for purchase?

making an analogy doesn't mean the analogy even remotely true or even makes any sense. just saying, the CLI has nothing to do with this.
The stock fw of the 9x is indeed damn hard to understand.

Was there any info regarding receivers? Because we haven't seen dsmx receivers from hobbyking, right?

What I'm missing and which would've been great was if there was a third or fourth joystick placed on the rear of the radio to be controlled by the index fingers. I've made such a modification myself on the T9X but only for the left hand.

Anthony Hand has said DSMX recievers are coming but didn't mention a timeline.

Check out what Chris1Seto of DragonLabs is working on in his spare time. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showpost.php?p=23244110
You will be able to mount this anywhere you want and add a joystick, a button, and another 3 position switch, while adding another 4 channels to your radio. Genius.

Yeah but it would IMO have been nicer to have it already on the radio.

Such a specific feature might be asking a bit too much for a $50 mass-market radio

What, it's only a cheap two axis stick already available. What is the big expense?

If I want to buy a stick + switch it's only $1.54 including including shipping: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Replacem...item41698f64cb
