FlySky FS-TH9X/Turnigy 9X w/ FS-RM003 (AFHDS 2A) + WLToys (AFHDS)?

Hi guys!

I recently purchased a Turnigy 9X from HobbyKing and read that it can bind with WLToys V911 micro heli and F949 micro Cessna 182.

I have spent multiple hours researching why my remote will not bind and have so far discovered the following:

My Turnigy 9X came with the RM-003 transmitter module installed (instead of the older RM-002 model, which only uses the regular AFHDS protocol) and included iA8 receiver, both of which use the AFHDS 2A protocol.

It appears that WLToys receivers only support regular AFHDS protocol and not AFHDS 2A.

My Turnigy 9X transmitter does not support switching protocols (no setting).

Online store ads state that the RM-003 "Can switch output modes"; If this is true, how?

Has anyone else ever had my problem? Can I just swap out the RM-003 module with an RM-002 and it will work with WLToys?

Thanks in advance for any help and/or suggestions!

My original 9x with stock AFHDS v2 module binds with the WLToys quad and micro rx that I have. You apparently got one of the "new and improved" 9x's with the AFHDS v2a modules. I don't know if it can switch back to the older protocol. Would be nice if it could. Worst case, scenario, would be to get the RM-002 module and swap. I wonder if the module antenna is still hardwired to the radio?

Yes; the cable connects from the module to the radio antenna, making it difficult to swap out the module, unless I add an in-line plug or something.
