Radio purchase help needed

Postby TacoRC » Mon Oct 08, 2012 12:21 pm

I currently have a 9x and use it for all my lower cost planes, but since my models are getting more expensive and I've added a trex heli, what if any radio would you recommend? I've been looking at the Aurora 9, JR, and Futaba. Something in the $500 and under range.

Have you thought about upgrading the 9x's Tx & Rx module to Frsky. I upgraded my Flysky TH9x to this unit because of the failsafe and improved distance. 1 x Telemetry Tx module and 2 x 8ch non-telemetry Rx's set me back approx AUD50 from
Some work will need be done to your 9x if the existing Tx module is hardwired, check for the how to on this. If your existing Tx module is not hardwired it is a simply PNP, just remember to recalibrate your sticks/pots when swapping Tx modules.
Not enough time in the day for all my crazy ideas, I'm not slow, I'm just pacing myself
