Any thoughts?? Some good ideas, but worthwhile replacing a 9X for 9XR ??

The matching cases are a bargain price btw...

I'm not going to bother.IMO the 9xr looks cheap and tacky.My 2-9x's with Frsky and er9x will see me out,i reckon.Unless the new Frsky tx is 200% better than the 9xr.

I agree, it looks cheap and IMHO doesnt look aas good as the 9x.It may look cheap and cheerful, but theres no such thing as cheap and cheerfull, only cheap and nasty

There is a reason it looks cheap... It is bloody cheap... I don't care how cheap it looks as long as it does its job...
Luckily I'm not one of those flyer's who have to have the best equipment available to enjoy it...
I'm pretty sure that if you use a $500+ radio against my $50 one you do not get 10 times the pleasure I do....

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... At 50 bucks you are not paying for looks, that's a bonus...

I would sure like to hear what you have to say about the new 9XR, Mr. Simpson. I doubt anyone has one yet, butjust based on the written specs.--what do you think? Worth replacing a 9X with the 9XR or not? Hopefully you will do a review f the 9XR once you get your hands on one. Can't wait to hear your opinion of it.
Cheers.

The 9xR is a 9x with an internal aerial ( that cant be used yet because they haven't made any Modules to utilize it)
it has 2 trainer ports instead of one,
it uses an early version on ER9X software
I'm told it does use slightly better gimbals,
a programming port built in (still have to buy the connector for the computer though),
a new case so it looks OK

you guys should know though that ER9x made the firmware, not hobbyking, and er9x aren't happy about them not getting the thanks they deserve for making the code and making it so stable and awesome all they want is the recognition for doing this as Hobbyking have removed any mention of this from the User manual (which they also wrote) a little thanks for there hard work is not to much to ask IMO

I read somewhere in the comments section of HK's listing that they will add a reference to the developers in the new manuals.
Keith,I don't have any $500 radio's either.I have 2 Turnigy 9x,a futaba 7c i was given for free(dud pot,easily fixed),and a 5ch futaba I picked up for $50.All have been converted to Frsky,and the 9x's to ER9x.If it wasn't for Hobbyking,i probably couldn't afford the hobby any more.I'm definitely in the "budget flyer" category.
I don't think the XR9 is that much better than the 9x,hence I won't be buying one.
I'm waiting to see how the new Frsky transmitter is going to turn out.If it's a lot better than the 9x,and not too expensive,I may be persuaded to invest in one of those.

I was just commenting in general and not referring to anyone specific. I believe the majority of ppl in this forum do probably look for the less expensive option. I know I do. I'm in the same boat Quarry without HKs cheap versions I would not be as active in this hobby. Some other forums I visit look down there noses at flyers who dare compete with there expensive equipment. I think a lot feel ripped off when they compare what they have for the price they paid and are ready to defend their actions....
