thought I would pass this along
Tags: 9x, Turnigy, US, Warehouse
I received my 9X last week. Do you know how many times I said to myself. "Chill out, its only a $50 TX". I have a Spektrum DX8 and Futaba 10CHG, and the only reason I bought the 9X was "its only a $50 TX".
I've go a DIY FrSky mod kit which I'm still deciding whether or not to install as I found that to use the TX with Phoenix RC Sim you need to disconnect the module (which is HARDWIRED!). I'm not sure if I solder the FrSky mod I will still be able to use it with the simulator or not.
I hate the software on the radio and the damn BEEPS it makes every click. I'm waiting for my smartieboard to arrive so that I can flash the ER9 opensource firmware
Yes the beeps are very annoying. But after some minutes of soldering some cables,
and a short programming action (ER9X) with my ATMEGA Programmer the beeps were gone :)
HI can you please provide a link for the diy Frsky mod for the 9x?
Thank you in advance
Hai, I have both the smartieboard, the FrSky and the ER9X. And I must say, they're great.
And the Simulator still works here (Xplane connected via phone jack)
I would be weary of the FrSky receiver, I used a 8 channel unit and FrSky tx unit in my Futaba T9CP. I had lots of problems, flips and crashes. Investigating you could see the ACM outputs doing weird things. I went back to Futaba 35mHz and everything was okay. Maybe FrSky frame rate is different.
@ Hai Tran For use with a sim you need to cut a trace and add a 1k ohm resister like in this video. So you can keep your FRSKy DIY Mod and still use in a sim. Watch this Youtube video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xD6Gia4G7Go
@Tassos here is a good video on the FRSKY DIY mod. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHnV6hGH108
@Hai Tran and Tasso - Or for a little more money you can use this one: DHT (comes with a RX) and just remove the internal antenna of the 9X. The module is pin compatiable with the 9X.
I just bought one of these, I plan on using the ER9x firmware (need to buy a programmer), and a Scherrer LRS uhf system (with a JR module plug that will work with the 9x). Seems the 1k ohm resistor mod is needed for this too, i'll have to wait and see.
thanks for all the info, I'm still waiting on the smartieboard to arrive, from the training videos the ER9 firmware looks a lot better than stock.
yes it is night an day.
