A rotary encoder is an "endless" rotary input device, like this:

And it's usually used for menu navigation like on JR/spektrum radios. Needs to have firmware support of course.
Any mouse middle wheel hardware could be moded into a rotary encoder, by routing the output signals into +/- buttons and press switch to select/enter, no need that radio firmware know about the peripheral change.

Yep, could work in principle, not a piece of cake to mod in though. Also debounce can be a problem in this case, you need much faster response from the FW that way (easy to "press" the key 20 times per second with a wheel, code/filtering for a hand-pressed key might miss clicks).

dot pitch on the X9D looks great but the blue screen looks really old and poor quality... no roller ?

At least it will be a feature implemented in the custom firmwares, we can't fly without it since it's available on the sky9x board!

Otherwise promissing but I simply hate that JR style roller encoder, actually JR will have a normal rotary encoder in their new XG11 E (similar as on Graupner/JR MC series, Futaba etc.).

I hope for you it's a "real" one, not the touch-sensitive foils Graupner and Futaba have all been putting in their latest radios - it's really awful.

The JR-style roller is the fastest entry mode I've used on any radio.

Really like the X12D, on the other hand the X9D seems like a Futaba 9Z... old style.

On the X12D on the sides is that just slider or button + slider? The silver round thing looks like a button to be pushed.

Yep, me too.. apart from that, the X12D rocks.I was hoping for a normal rotary encoder though. only a little correction about the audio.. it's not the only the ersky board that has it.. the stock flysky board now has a very good sound module too we can build for it..

Wow.. The X12 looks awesome.. The X9 looks more "vintage" but is ok...if it is cheaper than a old futaba 9c or Jr9330 second hand, it will be a great alternative.... I already have a 9cap super with frsky module, then no real interest for a X9...my focus will be on X12 ..please keep this look and don't forget lateral sliders!!!
My next tx would be a Aurora 9... But now I ll wait for this any idea of it price?

Looking good - looking forward to the x16 with a bigger screen on top, if that's still the intention
