Successful landings for me as well !! As I get older I get worse !

The setting of reflex ... I use 9xr / 9x radios and they with ersky9x and er9x ... have the Instant Trim function. (its useful for ALL trims not just the reflex) . 

Basically I set reflex so I know model will climb ... then once in the air - I hold my sticks so she flies straight and level ... hit the Trainer switch (set as my Instant Trim switch) .. let go sticks and she's flying straight and level. No fumbling around for trim buttons.
The other beauty of this - if you do use the trim buttons and you hit max trim ... you hit the Instant Trim which then digitally sets the trim .. buttons go back to mid point allowing you to use again .. so you in effect extend the trim buttons range. BUT of course the servo will only go so far .. so its wise to then mechanically set the controls after flight to give you back all the servo range. 


My FlySky doesn't have that fancy option. 😉

Sad ... really. if you have a 9x ... then flash with er9x ... much better than FlySky FW. I gave up with it and changed all to FrSky modules / er9x.

The later FlySky i series ... I think they lost a good opportunity there. Losing the module capability reduced the FlySky appeal to many.

This was my starter tx when I got into this hobby 5 years ago and it does most what I need it to do , price was cheap and the rx's are cheap to. I have the TH9X FlySky.

I have two of them ... one is FlySky and other is re-branded Turnigy. I fitted AR9x board to one and Smartieparts to other .. but AFTER I had re-flashed to er9x. The difference er9x to FlySky FW is black and white ... once you use er9x - you wonder why anyone uses anything else.

The biggest thing you notice is programming the 3 pos switch ... it actually works !! and intermixing channels ... 

I have three 9xr ... but in truth - I prefer the 9x, because of the 'feel' in hand and I can find trim buttons by touch ... the 9xr buttons are near flush and hard to find by touch. But apart from that and case slimmer - everything else is same .. (more memory of course...)
