As you all know, the Tunigy 9X is very hackable and there are all sorts of open source firmware versions out there (such as RadioClone or ER9X). But it all starts with a little hardware hacking so you can get to the onboard ATmega chip in the first place. This guy has gone all the way and added a better power supply, an easy programming port and even soft buttons (see above)!

 

Here it is running the ER9X firmware:

Hobby King sells a $5 plug in backlight kit that is nice.

Can we get a PPM signal out through the trainer port on this radio for all 9 channels?

I noticed the er9x page mentioned some hardware mods to make the ardupilot version work. is that strictly for on controller telemetry purposes, or something else?
