Turnigy 9X

On the page about getting the Arducopter, there  is mention of faults with the Turnigy X, such as "fly away". Being new to this, I don't know what it means. Could someone explain please?

  • From what I gather the 9x is not a bad radio if upgraded and set up correctly.
    There are several 'hack' firmwares for it that make it a very versatile radio, and there are a whole lot of different transmitter modules for it supporting every kind of receiver you can think of.
    BUT I would NOT use a stock T9X transmitter module or recever, as a matter of fact I ordered my T9X without module due to this. The T9x stock module has lots of issues based on what people on the forums say, so I chose not to even bother and went for OpenLRS and FrSky modules ordered with the tx.
    Thing with the 9x is mainly customizability, you can upgrade every thing in the radio and build your own out of it. You can even swap the gimbals for high end 4 ball bearing units, swap switches, add rotary encoders even upgrade to a better LCD.

    So if you are not afraid to get your hands dirty with modding and firmware upgrades, the 9x is great, but if you want something that is just right of the box it might not be the best choice.
  • A flyaway is when the aircraft takes off and flys away without any control inputs from you. I don't believe it's the fault of the transmitter as much as it is the controller. It happens on the Naza products as well as the APM products. No one has really ironed out what causes it to happen. But do a search on YouTube and you will find several examples where people have gotten their A/C back and had cameras on board recording the flight.
    In my case, I think it may have been caused by a voltage fault. I had a loose Deans connector that I think may have lost connection for a microsecond causing a restart of the controller.
