If you can get the 11X in the international variant (which I think you would, not being a victim of the Horizon Hobby camp) and it is modular, I would say that either would be a good pick, since you would not be stuck with DSM. If you *DO* get the HH 11X, then I would run, not walk, to the A9, since the 11X will be forever crippled by non-modularity. I think either will fly a heli just fine . . .

I think it depends on personal preference. Myself, I would prefer the touchscreen on the A9, since I am on a JR 10X, and feel that the JR roll&click wheel is a huge step backwards, but that is personal preference . . . I haven't programmed either the 11X or A9, so really can't comment much beyond that . . . . JR generally isn't too bad once you are used to it, although a lot of folks think the A9 is easier. To me, the best software out there is Multiplex . . .

They will both fly your helicopter.

Get the one that feels best in your hands.

I have the 11X with a DSMX upgrade, and have yet to find something I need that this transmitter won't do.

Yes, I very much agree with you Tim that when JR went away from the JR 10 type touch screen on their top-of-line, too that darn roller dial was a big step backwards.
It was enough of a step backwards that I am no longer a JR driver...and that is with 30 years of flying only JR stuff....sob

I solved the problem by just staying with my 10X's . . . I still haven't found anything they won't do that I want to do . . .

I still fly my JR 10SX on 72 but I couldn't find a 10 or 12 channel 2.4 modle to plug into the back for 2.4 as I needed it to fly at some of the large shows I go too. I did convert my 9303 9 channel to 2.4 with no problems.
I now have a "brand X" 14 channel that I use for all my new warbirds with touch screen.

I think that you will find that the JR won't do 10 channels in anything *but* PCM - IE go to PPM with the JR module and a JR RX, and I think you are limited to 9 as well . . . and since the 2.4 modules take PPM, that is why you never saw anything above a 9 channel . . . .

I remember seeing a Modular version of the JR 12X, at the Toledo Show. It supported 2.4 as well as 72Mhz modules.

How long ago was that?
HH doesn't seem to carry the MV of the 12X anymore...
