While the DX9 adds new features over predecessors the centrepiece of its leap forward is its incredibly advanced voice alert system. In fact, with its lexicon of over 300 words, numbers and phrases, it’s quite possibly the most advanced system of its kind ever seen (or heard) in a handheld transmitter.
Using this system, DX9 pilots will be able to maintain complete awareness of critical telemetry data and transmitter functions without ever having to take their eyes off what they’re flying. For instance, pilots can program the DX9 to call out what flight mode has been chosen when switching from one to another. It can also be programmed to call out specific values for voltage, temps, or any other telemetry info, on demand. If an alarm goes off, the pilot won’t have to look at the display to see what’s happening. The DX9 can tell them.
The DX9 comes out of the box with English voice alerts, but other languages are available for download.
While the DX9 does have a trainer cord jack, instructors have the option to wirelessly “buddy box” with another DSM2™/DSMX® transmitter. Once bound to another transmitter, ModelMatch™ technology allows the DX9 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.
When it comes to programming features, the DX9 has more in common with the DX18 than it does with any other transmitter in its class. The tried-and-true SimpleScroll™ programming interface makes menu navigation easy and all information is presented in crisp, clear detail on its backlit LCD screen.
DX9’s programming features include:
The DX9 is equipped with enough on-board memory to store 250 model setups. This enormous capacity means rarely, if ever, will there be a need to juggle models between transmitter memory and the SD card. The model memory menu is easier to navigate too. Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear. It won’t be necessary to scroll through empty slots or move models around if one is deleted.
