That's pretty darn funny. will you ask the "good authority" when the FrSKY transmitters will be out so we can deduct one month and know the exact date.

Instead 9xR you can get a lot of older good radios for less today, tu use them as a shell for "the radio that rules them all"...

For example the case of this radio will host the mainboard and screen of X9D, build log when enough advanced.

Just a thought here, but if the new up coming FrSky radio has a module bay, one welcome consequence of that is that I don't think it will need Australian MAAA approval for club use when used with an already MAAA approved module (like the current FrSky FHSS modules or a genuine Spektrum DSM2).
On the other hand if it's used with the internal transmitter circuit I think it will need to be MAAA certified for club use first. (Not to be confused with C-tick, which will be needed to sell them from here in Oz).

I guess this will apply to the new Turnigy 9XR radio too, maybe that was on their mind when they made it a module radio...
bye, Martin.

I think you will find that there is no internal transmitter circuit in the 9XR only an antenna.

The SSMB data sheet I found rates the connector for more than 500 connections.

9XR has no internal transmitter but I believe the new Frsky ones will do, running the new PXX protocol. This will need new MAAA approval. I dont think even the Frsky telemetry versions are on the approved list yet as it refers to the 'V' series receivers in the MOP.

I bought the original Spektrum DX6 DSM overseas and used that for maybe a year in Oz before it got approved. MAAA will either need to update the list or disappear into irrelevency as there are other insurance options.

I concur with you, but lets not get into it deep in this thread.
At least it 'should' mean I can go test a X12D at my club with a V8 series FrSky module or Spektrum DSM2 module with no complaints. To test the software and feel of the radio that will help a lot initially. Sounds like you are up for something similar...

Will the Module bay in the X9DA and other frsky Tx's be JR pins as indicated on Microtechnics web site or Futaba as indicated by post 1 on this thread?

Well, as microtechnics has the pictures that were posted here by Chase Wu I would say there description is likely correct

Any idea what is the difference in the module as it is mentioned:
"...new powerful JR type module - XJT (we called it D16 module before). "

At a wild guess its a DJT module updated for the new PXX protocol!
