We don't sell the top mount kit anymore. There were too many issues with people not attaching the u.FL connector correctly, resulting in range of about 20 feet. Since people don't like to range test, this resulted in some angry people who managed to crash while taxing.

Umm ok. I guess this is a mixed blessing as my A9 came with a hitec module and the 130$ might buy me a few hitec Rx i wasnt planning to ever own really.

Our Hitech module works great, we just don't offer a kit to relocate the antenna to the top of transmitter.

Ok I got over myself and just ordered a XPS module and some bits off your site. Anyway could you please add a clean TX module back case not drilled in my order? I can pay you for it but its not on the site. My order #14101

If so Thanks!

I had a crap season last year with lockouts on XPS and Futaba 9C (see my post history almost crashed plane and did cash heli) so I bought 2 new A9s and they will have XPS modules. I could have switched to hitec 2.4g but that seemed like too much of a cop out or band aid over a hidden problem I NEED to find! .

Right now Im FIRMLY in the idea it was my user error that caused all my woes last year. Im trying to fix and dig deep into my setups this year before I fly them. I HOPE pray! I can restore faith in myself and these planes/helis on XPS with all new gear and have a great season this year!

I can respect ya JD when ya say to range check everyday and I plan to range check the hell out of these A9s!

I will have the new case back added to your order. Those were part of the update kit. Please note that the 10" coax you ordered is way too long for the Aurora 9 transmitter!

No, we don't have them deliberately because people were trying to assemble their own top mount kit for the Aurora 9.

I can look to see if we have any left somewhere.

I'll agree
The A9 module works great. I would be really happy if the antenna came out the top of the module instead of the back
