Update on the Turnigy 9XR

From HK:

- The 9XR has a pin-out in the battery compartment for easier custom firmware flashing without needing to open the case.
- It will use the atmega chip and can be flashed with your existing customised software. In fact, it comes standard with a similar rom to ER9x. 
- Backlit screen
- Has inbuilt and module based antenna system
- Spare parts available
- Improved switch and pot quality
- The 9XR will be $50.00
- We're working with Frsky on a module for the 9XR

New Turnigy 9xR confirmed !

Hobbyking have posted a few tweets this week confirming the new 9xR is in the works. There is very little info available, but I can quote the following from twitter:

   " module based with inbuilt 2.4 antenna plus options for FASST, DSMX & long range 433mhz plus it looks & feels much nicer."

   " 9X will be replaced by 9XR later this year (worth the wait, trust me)"

   " its been 18 months in the making. I should have more information soon. - Anthony"

Photos should be released in a few months. That's all we know for now but I'll update when any info is forthcoming and buy one for review as soon as they are released.
