After careful consideration and a lot of reading I decided to purchase the Multiplex EVO 9. A friend had one and I was able to get my hands on it for an evening and check it out thouroughly!
Bigguy! I read over the info you posted and checked it against the one I had here. I took the back off the Tx and checked out all the wireing. Either Multiplex has corrected the problem or the folks in the postings were just unlucky enough to get a bad radio, which does happen even to the best of them. I found the wireing to be of good quality, and installed in such a way as to not interfere with any of the inner workings. Personally, I don't see how it is said to be too stiff and brittle.
This Radio system has some awsome key features that I feel will be very useful. As for the Exponential being the same for all flight modes, talking directly to Hiflight they say it has been corrected with software updates, the same as the problem with the shift select. We have ordered the interface cable and when it arrives, we will be able to download the newest software up dates correcting these programming problems.
There is quite a learning curve involved with this radio but once that is mastered, this should be an excellent system.
Here are just a few of the specs for those who are interested:
Multiplex Royal EVO 9 FM/PPM
20 Aircraft Model Memory
Large LCD display screen, 3 position tilting with variable contrast control.
Digital trims with sound and graphic display on LCD to show positioning.
Plug in RF Module for individual crystals or "synthesizer module"
6 Button Program access panel.
Fully programmable transmitter controls for any Mode, 1,2,3,or 4.
Up to four flight phases with trim controls on each memory location.
Shift selectable for postitive or negative pulse.
Comprehensive mixing control for Fixed wing for Heli setup!
Very reasonable price for such a full featured radio. Price comparable to the Futaba CAF.
