I got a 9CHPS with the Spectrum DM8 2.4 module. I'm looking to start buddy boxing with my son who is 10. I don't want to have to buy an expensive radio to do the buddy box. My question is this. Is the Futaba trainer box compatible with this setup. Reading the specs, it is required to be in PPM mode which is what the module requires the 9C to be in. Let me know if you have done this or think it will work. TIA.

It should work, the buddy box system doesn't care what kind of RF is being used and as you say, the module requires PPM mode.

Got the trainer box today....IT WORKS!!!! with the 9CHPS w/DM8 2.4GHz module upgrade. Can't wait to get my son out flying with me. He just needs to learn how to not get grounded....LOL

Adds a whole new dimension to "grounded" eh?
