Re: Search for Replacement 9x Potentiometers!

The 9X Radio's, Gimbal Sticks, only have a total travel of 55 degrees. I do not have access to a 9XR Radio, dose the 9XR Radio have the same gimbal sticks Travel of 55 degrees? And if it dose, Then dose, the 9XR Radio's Potentiometers with there 80 degrees of working Rotation, have poorer performanc...

Re: 9x Glitches

The intermitting problem maybe caused by the fragile connection inside the 9x Potentiometer. I also, at first, started having momentarily failures with my 9X Radio and over time it failed completely. Searching for the cause it did leaded me to my throttle Potentiometer being the problem. A member of...
