Hi


I have the X9r pro, just wish I know how to use all the program, I would think that you must be able to use all of the functions in one form or another.


All in all I have found it to be a good system and you can get the RX in the U.K so you do not have to go to Lobbying.

in all honesty, your money would be better spent on a FrSky Qx7.

Re: Turnigy X9 binding
« Reply #9 on: June 19, 2019, 09:38:43 PM »


Hi.


I have gone through the bind process with different radios over the years so have a good idea of how to do it.


With the Turnigy 9x my result is failure, I have read the manual watched a couple of clips on YouTube but no success.


Plug in the bind plug and power, hold in the bind button on the transmitter and turn it on. All I get is the same flashing light on the receiver I had before I turned the transmitter on.


Please people what am I missing? /

the bind directions for the 9x and its receiver are bad...   on the receiver the plugs labeled "bind" and "bat" are backwards.

start watching the following youtube video at the 2 minute mark:

Thanks for your comment , did you use the first port for the battery or bind plug as the markings on the RX are really poor?
