To what does this poll refer to?

Is it the transmitter, modulation device or what or is it really what brand of transmitter are you using?

If it pertains to which 'module' , why isn't FrSky listed?

It's the transmitter (sorry) :-)

My main RC system is a home-built Supertef 96, as designed by Francis Thobois:
http://home.nordnet.fr/~fthobois/anglais/introstf96.htm
It is a fully programmable transmitter with synthesized RF module "drawers". I have flown it since 1997 with total reliability on the 41 MHz band in France and on the 72 MHz band in the US.
The receivers I use are the double conversion Rx-17-2, also by Francis Thobois:
http://home.nordnet.fr/~fthobois/anglais/introrx17.htm
I am currently expecting a FrSky DIY module to make a 2.4 GHz drawer. I also have been using the FlySky systems (4 and 6 channels) with no particular problem.

I was a Spektrum user, but switch to Futaba FASST 3 years ago. I now fly with the 12FG and 8FG, no problems at all.

My Radios used are a JR 9XII with a spektrum 2.4 module and an older JR 3810 recently fitted with the FrSky 2.4 module of which I am well impressed so far. I have gradually been converting my models over to 2.4Ghz as & when finances allow, mainly for piece of mind of the problems on 35Mhz. I used to get especially with glitching electric powered models, or the numpty who turns up and turns their radio on without making any checks etc.

I'm using a JR dsx9. I'm happy with this radio, but after the long wait have just converted my Multiplex 3030 over to the Spektrum format. This radio (3030) is so much more user friendly. I like how no channel or servo function is allotted until I tell it what stick or servo function it will do. It only has 3 main menus with sub menus. This radio is now 11 yrs old and no longer in production. But it is still up there with the very best of them on the market today. Specs. 9 CH, 100 model memory, 1500mah 6cell NiCad with a built in discharge function to cycle the battery. Adjustable low voltage alarm. Multiple timer and stopwatches. Can be fully optioned with extra switches and sliders as needed. All the mixers you will need for plane, glider, and heli, plus user define mixing.

I'm very satisfied with my two DX6i. Only issue is the trim tabs. Can be upgraded to aluminum which I have done on one of the transmitters.

I'm picking Hitec, even though the xmtr says Futaba, the link is done by Hitec.

I'm using my old Futaba 9C converted with a Hitec 2.4 module. I picked the Hitec route because I was planning on getting an Aurora in the near future, and over the past year I've bought 8 Hitec receivers. Well during the Toledo show I got a chance to play with the A9 and the Airtronics SD10, and now think I should have went the Airtronics way. I could feel the quality in it, where the Hitec hardware felt cheap. Lots of people say the SD10 is too thick, but it fits well in my hands. The programming routines are completely different, but each looked easy to learn. Oh well, too much money invested in receivers already, so now I'll just wait until Hitec gets the bugs out of the A9.

DX7 and the JR 9XII. I use both equally as much. JR on plane as they've more option and very flexible on their programing. DX7 on my heli as they are expensive to get shoot down, more than adequate programe option for my heli.
