9X Transmitter REVIEW: Turnigy FlySky Imax Eurgle




What do you think about this video?

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 FM antenna.

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.

daniel Raoule: 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 background music

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 solution.

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 radio.

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 :)

daniel Raoule: Hi I want buy 9ch you think the flysky is good or the turnigy , thanks have nice day!

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

96sunvalley: 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.
