How-to Video for "9x Firmware Update"

I wanted to share with you our video on updating the firmware on your 9x radio. This is a follow up to our "9x DIY Upgrade Kit" install video. It covers everything you need to successfully update the firmware on your 9x radio following the hardware install covered in first video. In addition, this video also shows you how to install sample models and calibrate your radio.

**Update- parts for the 9x DIY Upgrade Kits have arrived and we'll begin taking orders Saturday, Sept 15 and first shipments will be on the following Monday.**

The 9x Firmware Update video is divided into sections allowing you to skip to the needed information:

- Download Firmware and Software Tools - 1:02
- Firmware Update Process - 4:28
- Sample Models - 8:00
- Calibration - 9:53

While this video mentions our 9x DIY Upgrade Kit, the information will be helpful to anyone who has a programmer installed on their 9x radio.

Let us know if this video helps and also what else you would like us to cover.

Thanks for watching!

  • I don't know much at all about the 9xR. I know HK likes to talk about it :), but who knows what's going to come of it. I do know the FrSKY will be coming out with some nice radios at the end of this year. I'm most interested in these as FrSKY has a very proven track record with their transmitter modules and receivers.

  • Nice video! I would have def. bought your kit. It would have saved me a lot of research and fine-soldering. Do you have info on the next Turnigy radio 9xR? Rumors on the internet say: it will have er9x preinstalled, usb and isp port, backlight etc and will be available this/next month?

  • This video is realy awesome and it shows realy what to do in detail. Good job.
