This manual covers Er9x firmware used in the 9x and 9XR transmitters The latest version of this manual is available at: Yeah, and no spitting either! Erazz Notice Er9x and eepe are free open source software, independently developed.

Manuak manual is provided to help you manuaal and use them. In using them, you agree that you accept all responsibility. For more information go to:. Glossary of Terms for Er9x So we should give him the first words mamual this new version of the manual. Here’s the introduction from his manual: The transmitter is outfitted with a x64 pixel monochrome LCD, two 2-axis gimbals, three variable potentiometers potssix 2-position switches, one 3-position switch and some funky red trim. The big thing about this transmitter is the price.

The catch is in the firmware FW.

The original FW is less-than-perfect. It has bugs, funky navigation and the most annoying beeping I have ever heard.

However, some neat guy called Thus figured out that the whole radio is made from gimbals, switches, funky trim and a very generic main processing unit that does absolutely everything. He had one of those ah-ha moments where insanity overrides common-sense and decided to completely rewrite the original software and replace it with his own.

So in the spirit of open-source, the Thus source was stolen and Er9x was born. Yeah, I was vain. ER are my initials. You might want to check out Thus’ code. While you’re at it check out RadioClone’s code which also manuap on the 9x. His FW is more complex but also more er9. Go now to the kitchen, make yourself a nice cup of coffee. This is a long read. I’ll wait here till you’re ready. Then Mike came along and he’s been doing the development ever since. Mike developed and implemented the many advanced features we now have available in Er9x, and he continues to improve the firmware constantly, documenting the changes as he goes.

But over the past couple of years, the manual which Erazz gave us, and which is supposed to bring together everything you need to use Er9x, became seriously out of date.

So we’ve decided to spend some days, eerrr Our aim is to provide documentation that reflects the latest officially released version of Er9x. So if you update your firmware, be sure to check for new documentation here.

Mwnual the firmware continues to evolve, if you are using an older version of Er9x you will find that some features mentioned in this manual are not available to you. You will also find that the structure of menus has been revised in recent versions. We don t think these changes should present a problem for most users, manuql for easiest and best results we maunal recommend updating your firmware.

In addition to the official releases, Mike provides test versions of Er9x at this location. Those of you who want to keep up with the latest developments should manuql there, but be aware that those versions may still have issues. The plan of this manual is very simple in principle though a bit more complicated in reality. First, in the Introduction we explain some basic things you need to know about the transmitter and the firmware, including some background on the 9x transmitter and how it has evolved, an introduction to the various versions of the firmware and how Er9x works, and an overview of how to use the firmware.


Finally, the Introduction explains the main screens that show you what’s going on in the transmitter and manyal be used to display telemetry data sent back from the model.

Then we go screen by screen and menu by menu through the many settings and controls that give Er9x its amazing power and flexibility. The main section called Radio Setup deals with the global settings that determine how the transmitter works and that affect all the models you program into it. Next is a short section on creating and selecting among the individual model definitions on your transmitter. The section called Model Setup is the big one.

It allows you to program individually each model that you fly or drive with this transmitter; in some cases there are options that, for one model, override the global Radio settings. Finally, in the Annexes we offer examples of programming, notes on the hardware modifications that have been developed to take advantage of Er9x, and a glossary of terms.

Along the way, we’ve tried to keep at least some of the inimitable humour Erazz brought to the original manual. A mnaual of humour is healthy and helps to relax while reading. We ef9x hope this majual helps people enjoy using this great piece of technology in their RC hobby.

Er9x demands some effort on the part of its users, but we believe the results are more than maunal it.

It included firmware that was relatively powerful but rather buggy and it could store eight models in memory. Though manufactured by FlySky it was also sold under a variety of other brand names Eurgle, Imax, etc.

By aboutmodules were available that could be plugged into the 9x to enable it to use the new RF system. As well, HobbyKing had adopted the 9x and branded it Turnigy. The firmware was overhauled, eliminating most of the bugs, and called V2.

Originally, the 9x was sold without a module and people installed their own, but by the Turnigy version included a FlySky 2. It’s interesting to note that the standard PPM protocol used with the 2. So that’s why, despite the 9x name, in its usual form the transmitter provides only eight channels. Meanwhile, as you have read above, Erazz, building on the work of others, was hard at work giving the 9x a brain transplant called Er9x.

This new open source firmware transformed the transmitter from a cheap and fairly capable controller into a still cheap but now amazingly flexible and powerful radio, taking full advantage of the new 2.

InErazz handed over care and development of the Er9x firmware to Mike, who took up the challenge and further improved it. Along the way, modules and receivers from FrSky RC never to be called FrySky and not to be confused with FlySky RC, who make the 9x transmitter gave the 9x outstanding range and reliability.

Subsequently, hardware modifications such as the telemetry mod, to allow the radio to receive the FrSky telemetry data, as well as haptic feedback vibration and a voice module, were developed for the radio by members of the open source community.

One thing that stood in the way of upgrading flashing the stock firmware to Er9x was the requirement to install a programmer, which took some delicate soldering on a very small scale. The problem was fixed when the SmartieParts programming board provided a no-solder solution. Bythe 9x was fully developed and in wide use.

It was joined by the Turnigy 9XR, which was essentially a reconfigured 9x in a new case.

Despite the arrival of other radios since then, such as the 9XR Pro and Taranis, and the development of the alternative OpenTX firmware as a fork from Er9x, the 9x transmitter with Er9x firmware remains a favourite with many flyers around the world and continues to lead the way in improvements, thanks to Mike’s continuing work.


Currently, there are two main versions, one is black and sold under the name of FlySky and the other is grey and sold by HobbyKing under the Turnigy label. For all practical purposes they are now identical. The module required uses the JR form factor. There may also be versions of the 9x sold by other distributors under a different label, and these may or may not include a module.

Note that receivers from one manufacturer are generally not compatible with modules from another manufacturer, unless specifically designed for compatibility.


In its stock form, the 9x uses an ATmega64 chip m64 as the central processing unit. This works well but imposes significant limits on both processing and storage. Consequently, some users have replaced the processor of the 9x radio with an ATmega or ATmega The former chip doubles the flash and eeprom memory, while the latter also doubles RAM. Some of the features described in this manual may not be available for the 9x radio with the original ATmega64 processor though as Mike continues to free up memory by improving the code, more and more features are fitted into the m64 version.

Also there are some features like telemetry, voice, haptic vibrationrotary encoder, etc. Some of these also require the selection of a particular version of the firmware. A brief description of various modifications is provided in Annex B. This is essentially a physically redesigned transmitter that is in most respects fully compatible with the 9x.

It includes a connector that allows an inexpensive programmer to be plugged in for communication with a computer. Indeed, we strongly recommended that the stock firmware be replaced because it is not compatible with the eepe program see page 5 and does not to allow backup of firmware or models to a computer. In the upgraded 9XR Pro was introduced, and in early it was announced that the 9XR was being discontinued.

The Pro has many additional hardware features including a much more powerful processor, voice and haptic functions, and a built-in programming capability. It runs a more advanced version of the firmware called Ersky9x, many of whose features are similar to those in Er9x described in this manual.

Versions of the Firmware Factors involved in choosing the right version of Er9x for your 9x or 9XR transmitter include: Depending on 3 If you’d like to see a version in your own language, ask about creating a language file for it, and offer to do the translation. Everything that’s available is done by volunteers. The currently available Er9x firmware versions are shown in the table below. For the latest release of Er9x, go here. But the the best way to install and manage Er9x firmware is with the eepe program described in the next section.

The eepe Program The eepe program is designed to run on a Windows computer Macintosh and Linux versions are also available but may not always be up to date. It manages the process of flashing the transmitter to Er9x firmware and keeping the firmware updated. In addition, eepe allows you to edit both the general settings of the transmitter and the individual model settings and programming.

Er9x Manual Edition. Because it was needed!!

You can use eepe to edit the individual models within the file and test your changes on the simulator built into eepe. When satisfied, you can upload the amended file back to the transmitter. You can also store individual models on the computer as eepm files and copy them into the eepe file at a later date.

It can also store them to and retrieve them from your computer using eepe. eg9x
