Dennis rc: Hi do you know from were can I buy a 3rd generation module to upgrade my
eurgle transmitter? Thanks.
richard seger: Hi and thank you very much for fast answer So you can reflash both with
latest software? fly sky also have both mhz and ghz antenna but turnigy
doesn´t.?? How is the flysky´s module attached to the mainboard? is it also
soldered on or is it cable connection? Best regards Richard
JBC Reviews: @Starofking1 The Turnigy cannot be used as an FM TX, only as 2.4gHz but the
Flysky can be used as both a 2.4gHz and FM TX, that's why it has the extra
jamesb1221222: Very nice review.. Wish hobbyking would get these back in stock already.
I'm dying to get one.
JBC Reviews: @iceman500PD Most buddy cords are the same (as in 3.5mm jack) so if you
have a spare or you know a mate who has one then give it a try. As far as
I'm aware the 9X will only buddy with another 9X where your both using the
same brand module/receiver.
Starofking1: Hi but the flysky have two antenna and the turnigy have only one what is
the difference?? , thank you very much , i'm beginner, have nice day!
JBC Reviews: @Starofking1 they are the same transmitter just different name
JBC Reviews: @NoobyRC It's the same radio but the Firmware is different. Apparently
hobbyking had a batch go out with bad firmware, maybe your was one of them.
I can't really say much more, I've got three 9X's and they've all been
excellent for me, my friend also has one and he has not had any problems :)
roadstar499: i am new to planes and i just ordered the flysky version and this this
thing looks very hard to configure for a newbie
JBC Reviews: The modules simply plug into the back on all units and as far as I'm aware
you can reflash all units. Yes correct the turnigy no longer has a mhz
antenna but is the same in all other ways.
JBC Reviews: @TheKrazydreams I assume you mean the background music??? if you turn the
volume down a little you can still hear the audio but without the
bigkdog363023: How do you start/stop the timer on the radio?
JBC Reviews: @sbolandatutube without speculating it would best to see what can and can't
be used at your local club by asking them directly.
ghosttroop: Really cool review JBC. Mine is on the way and its brilliant being walked
through the operation and menus as opposed to attempting to decipher the
strange dialect used in most Chinese versions of an English instruction
manual. A 9ChTransmitter/8ChReciever delivered to my door for US$75...
unbelievable. Very helpful stuff and ive got few questions for you about
the firmware upgrade and the lipo installation that ill save for another
day. Nice work. I love your Mustang. Sweeeet ;)
coolwaterhubby: Hi. Roadstar 499. I. Watched. Your video. On the. Turnigy 9. Ch radio . I.
Have. The. Flysky. Radio and would like you some question about it. If you.
Have the. Time .
richard seger: Hi. I wonder which one to go for. I am buying one in the nearest days and
you seem to be very experienced of them. In the long term which one is the
best i your opinion? I do not mind modifying or reflash. I just want the
one that have widest ability and have good 2.4ghz tecnology. Sry for
spelling errors but enlish is not my first language :) . I really hoping
and it would be much apricciated if you have the time to answer me soon.
Best regards. Richard
brownviper1966: good review pal
wallaguest1: hi witch is the title of the last song? looks from 80' ?
Dragon69Fly: @PARTYjohn69 I doubt the 1.5-2km. i agree that you can fly till youre plane
is a tiny dot. I lost 2 planes IN line of sight around 500 meter. So dit my
mate who fly's with the v2 type. when driving for it with the car it waw
around 500 meters.. Straight line. Just my 2 cents. Original module though
JBC Reviews: Quite the contrary, it's fairly easy and intuitive to use, similar to the
JR menu system
stephen5150: Hey there I think I have the same question as 400Chevic do they buddy box
and would they buddy with the likes of a spectrum etc. I have the same
set-up as you with the corona 2.4 and its been great, binding often takes
two attempts with that module, its seems to like a quick start with the
battery connector then plug it in again straight away and you are good to
go instant bind do you have the same issue
JBC Reviews: @sbolandatutube no c tick but it does have the CE mark which is the EU
equivalent of our c tick.
NoobyRC: I have had nothing but problems with the Hobbyking Turnigy 9x, V2 lots of
money spent on batteries, soldering bad connections and intermittent issues
with fluttering ailerons and rudders wile flying ending in one crash after
another, I like the radio, and the low cost for receivers, but I can not
trust it anymore, now I have found the Eurgle "3rd Gen" @ r2hobbies com, do
you know if this radio is better then Turnigy 9x version 2?
Sergio Porras: hi how far i can flr with this radio transmitter?
JBC Reviews: @400chevlc trainer port is there and there's the setting in the menu to do
it so I don't see why you couldn't do it, it should work.
JBC Reviews: @Pono421 That's strange, I've never heard of that happening before. Have
you tried re-binding the receiver? if that doesn't work then follow the
links in the description to my blog where I have links to the thread on
this transmitter. You can ask the question there where there are also
programmers that have written firmware for the 9X, they might have a
JBC Reviews: @KozmykJ Great tip, thanks for sharing! :) (THUMBS UP)
bendie59: thanks was very informative
ChickenHawk110: One of the best budget setups out there today is the Turnigy 9x TX with
custom flashed firmware, backlight, and the FrSky 2.4Ghz FHSS module to
suit. (JR type) Get rid of the originalreceiverss. You then have a radio
just as "powerful" as the high end 8-9 channel brand name TX's.
TheKrazydreams: you audio is annoying
JBC Reviews: @jamesb1221222 Thanks, glad you enjoyed it :) You don't have to wait for
Hobbyking if you don't want to, you can checkout leaderhobby (DOT) com they
also stock it. I have two Turnigy's and 1 Flysky from leadershobby both
work exactly the same.
JBC Reviews: @sergionew7 It will be fine for FPV, I'd recommend using either a FrSky or
Corona 2.4Ghz module with it
Soldier53flyer: Did you do a video on how to tell if you have a 9X V2 or V1?
eli cortes: @PARTYjohn69 i found the problem,...the 4 numbers at the top of that menu
are for setting the stick positions for ch. 1-4. i must of pushed the menu
button by mistake and it reset all the sticks to center. i thought my radio
was no good, my bad...LOL i found a fix for this problem.... its in er9x's,
(flashing 9x.pdf) on page 29. it tells you how to reset the stick postions
on the stock 9x radio. now all the sticks in the display menu are
cen-terd.... LOL thanks for you help dude.
JBC Reviews: Hi mate, all the transmitters are made in the same factory and are the same
except for the different name. They all work exactly the same, therefore
one is not better than the other.
Soldier53flyer: got it thank you
JBC Reviews: @stephen5150 Hi Stephen, I haven't tried buddy boxing with a Spektrum tx
but I'd be surprised if it did as they use different proprietary
technology, no harm in trying on the ground though.
JBC Reviews: @bigkdog363023 Using the trainer switch on the top, right, rear of the
eli cortes: i checked the firwier on mine and its v14, just above on that same menu
there is 4 numbers. you can changer them to 0001,-0005. i dont know if 1
got changed or what but now my radio doesnt work, (al, ele,rudder). do you
know what the problem is?......
roadstar499: This is my first computer radio other then flysky ground radio i use for my
boats...i hope u r right...i don't think any mixing is needed for the dynam
p51 and t-28 anyway al i need is a channel for retracts and i think a knob
for flaps after i install them or a three staage switch as i hear flaps can
be tricky and giving full flaps all at once can be hairy...heard many great
things bout this flysky 9x and for $90 shipped,i can't complain
Ozzi Supercub: Great vid. Do you know if you can buddy box these radios? I have an idea
for a training device that i dont think has been done before.
NoobyRC: I have received similar replys from others who have this radio, perhaps I
just got a bad one, i do have lots of receivers for it now, so I think i
will get another one and send this one back to hobbyking
JBC Reviews: @Pono421 great to hear, glad you sorted it out :)
Starofking1: Hi I want buy 9ch you think the flysky is good or the turnigy , thanks have
KozmykJ: @iceman500PD Depending on the modules you're using in your Turnigy you
might need to add a 1K resistor to the PPM line before Trainer mode will
work properly, I think it's just the trainer/slave Tx needs it but I'd do
both in case they get swapped around. Can't link on here but search
RCGroups for " Turnigy 9X 'resistor fix' " You CAN mix makes of Tx but you
may have to add circuitry to balance the PPM signal levels, depending on
which make. You'll have to read up on this subject.
TheKrazydreams: @PARTYjohn69 the music is fine
TF Shaw: Thanks for the great info!
iceman500PD: What's up JBC? I want to know if there is a buddy cord? If so, where can I
get one and what other radio will it work with?
JBC Reviews: @ChickenHawk110 I agree, however I already have over 20 Corona rx's and
they've been flawless to date so I can't really justify swapping to a
different brand module/rx just yet
JBC Reviews: @sergionew7 Depending on what module you use the average is about
1.5kms-2kms. I have flown until my planes were just tiny dots in the sky
and didn't have any problems. I have friends that use Spektrum and this
radio is just as good as theirs.
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
