Turnigy 9x Receiver Compatibility

So I currently have a Flysky FS-t6 that works fine for most of what I need. However, I have been looking at getting into bigger jets but many of those require 7 or more channels. I came across a Turnigy 9x for $40 on local classifieds and am considering it.

My question, is will the turnigy 9x be compatible with the flysky FS-R6B receivers I already have in all my airplanes? What about with the twin antenna IA6 and IA8 receivers? Is it compatible with both at the same time?

On a side note, I also found a Turnigy TGY-i10 for $80. Same question about receiver compatibility applies. Is the TGY-i10 significantly better than the 9x for a casual sport flyer who just needs more channels?

Flysky uses 2 protocols AFHDS and AFHDS 2A. The Turnigy 9X used only AFHDS, the older protocol. Your Rx runs in the newer AFHDS 2A, I don't think it will run the older protocol. You should check the documentation to be sure. The Turnigy TGY-i10 uses the newer protocol.

I use the older 9X and have been very happy with it.
