Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

$49.99 / £30.92 (No TX Module included)

QuoteThe greatly anticipated Turnigy 9XR has arrived!

The software for the 9XR first began development 6 years ago. Since then it has been tweaked, tuned, changed, updated and revamped by members of the R/C community into a powerful - yet easy to use interface. Our engineers designed the physical product around the R/C communities software changes and input. The culmination of all these is the Turnigy 9XR!

For many users this will be the perfect 9 channel radio straight out of the box, but there are many tinkerers out there who love modifying and pushing the boundaries of what is possible from their radio. We have factory fitted the 9XR with an AVR ISP header to simplify the development of custom software, we have launched turnigy9xr.com as the epicentre for software developers and additional community support for all 9XR users......With the 9XR we encourage it!

The 9XR is supplied preloaded with top quality software which is full of features and yet remains easy to use. Our aim was to develop a radio for you, the hobbyist, with an extensive list of standard features usually expected from a radio system 3 times the price. Our Turnigy 9XR is everything you imagined and more!

Doesent have any RF module.. so you need to add cost of that .. DHT  .. so add @ £25

Should work with any FC..    the original 9x with er9x was a great combo.. especially with the Frsky RF module..    the 9XR is just an upgrade with built in interface to make it easier to add / modify the open source OS.

Looks very nice.

Be interested to see if it can support the other features that the DJI needs such as a switch for Manual, Atti and GPS

Beauty of it is that you can assign the switches to do anything you like, one of the reasons I am going to get one; it';s about as flexible as you can get.
If you want to know more have a look on the 9x uk forum.

Looks good, i might get one myself. there are some on Ebay. Quite a bit more expensive although it does come with the module.

What are the delivery times like for Hobby King?

That';s not the same transmitter, that';s the old one that needs to be loaded with the er9x or open9x firmware; have a look on the 9x uk forum if you want to learn more.

It seems like hobbyking aren';t playing exactly fair;

QuoteIMPORTANT NOTICE - TURNIGY 9XR
Hobbyking/Turnigy ave just released a radio called 9XR which has a port for a programmer and an installed backlight. This is a very welcome addition since it makes programming the radio very easy for the novice. That being said, they have not given credit to the originators and contributors and they have not released the code as required by the GNU 2.0 software license.
So while we are very happy to see them make the 9XR radio we do want them to acknowledge the hard work and the effort made by all the contributors. Please let them know how you feel about this.
We have tried to contact them but have not been able to receive any response. We';ll update here if and when we get one.


Bit dissapointed by this - all they need to do is give credit and release the source as required by the GPL - which they haven';t done. Nothing to stop them selling this transmitter and making money of it (i bet they sell loads) but they don';t seem willing to do the few little things necessary to keep the community that did the hard work happy. I don';t know why they would behave like this but it';s unfortunate.

Looks like a nice radio though.

Your a few days late with that:

The gist of the reply from Hobbyking is:

Please note: There is a new user manual available, the acknowledgements were left out by accident in the rush to release the 9XR for you on Christmas Day.

Re: Source Code Location?
by Ross_HK » 27 Dec 2012, 12:52

The 9XR Firmware is a fork of ER9x.

The 9XR-r1 (v1.1) source code will be available later today and I will post the link to it when it is up.

The manual has been edited to include the acknowledgements of the original firmware developers and the ER9x community.
(This was an omission from the user guide rushed through on Monday 24th, December to coincide with the 9Xr';s Christmas Day release.)

This wasn';t corrected for 48 hours post the release due to Christmas Day & Boxing Day being public holidays.

Apologies for the angst this may have caused!

Well spotted Gerry - that is reassuring to read, thanks.

There were a good few days where it didn';t look promising though - lots of unhappy user comments on the hobbyking website (often removed) and zero response from the hobbyking team. A cynically minded person might suspect them of trying to see if they';d get away with it. I';m not sure :shrug:

They are cheaper from giantcod;

http://www.giantshark.co.uk/flysky-fsth9xb-channel-transmitter-module-receiver-p-406149.html

The branding is different but it';s the exact same radio. I know - i had to get one from them when my old transmitter (dx6i) failed and i couldn';t wait for hobbyking international. You can flash those with the er9x firmware as you';d expect.

It';s not the same transmitter, there have been a lot of customer driven changes - if you wanted to bring it up to the spec of the new one it would cost more.
Functionality wise once flashed with open9x or er9x firmware there wouldn';t be much difference but the main thing is there';s no hacking about to do.

You are right - the giantcod one i linked to isn';t the same as the shiny new 9XR hobbyking are selling, but it is the same as the old Turnigy 9X that hobbyking still sell, just with different branding. Sorry i wasn';t clear.

If you are looking at the Turnigy 9X then you could get the giantcod one instead if you can';t wait a couple of weeks or so for hobbyking international delivery, it works exactly the same as can be flashed with the improved er9X firmware just the same - it just costs a bit more.

But the new one does have a bunch of new features like the backlight, and comes with the improved firmware as default, so is a better option (when it';s in stock - and if you are happy buying the RF module / receiver separately).

Think I would wait awhile...see what sort of complaints go into Hobbyking about it  first....  :rofl:
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.

DarrellW

I';m in no rush so it doesn';t really matter to me - that said my new quad has taken up my last slot on my dx6i - I';m waiting to see what the new frsky tx is like when it comes out - from some of the pre-release stuff I';ve seen it might be a better option; if I was in a rush I would probably get the new Orange dx6i alike, it would do me for now!
