how truly easy is the install?

Post by blkfleet » Sat May 13, 2017 6:29 pm

got my USB device today, seen many videos on the whole install process and it seems very very easy... but i have heard from some that i shouldnt really rely on the videos because the install isnt really that easy. so i am asking you folks out there for input i would love to flash my 9Xr this weekend. also i have seen how some folks say something about you have to know what chip i guess your radio has....i didnt know they made different chips can anyone enlighten me on this? thanks

There are two different radios, the old one is called the 9XR and the newest one is called the 9XR-Pro.
Which one do you have ? :?:

The 9XR comes with er9x firmware and the 9XR-Pro comes with erSky9x firmware.

There aren't a few options ;) there are only 2. Er9x and OpenTX.
I personally like and use Er9x. Another couple reasons I would recommend it are that it is still being developed, it supports the multiprotocol module and it supports more hardware changes in case you want to do it.. I also like the menus better..

But my advice is that you try both and decide which is best for you.
