I am in a predicament,

I have a TH9x and want to upgrade the back module and both FR-Sky and OrangeRX is good in its own little way.

I am using the APM 2.5 and is looking for distance and failsafe, I am not too worried about the telemetry option because the 3DR radio gives it to me much nicer the remote will ever give.

I am looking at the following.



and then on the Frsky's advert the following is stated.


"If you think DSM2 or FASST is the best, think again!
New FrSKY ACCST (Advanced Continuous Channel Shifting Technology) gives you secure radio communicatios in 2.4Ghz band. ACCST 2.4GHz system shifts 80 channels around hundred times per second in the 2.4GHz band. This means that the system is completely resistant to interference in that band."

What is the best and why, please help?

Have FrSky and Open9X. I've modded the TH9x to show telemetry. I use it for when not flying the APM. frSky seem to be good at releasing updates to their products. Like CPPM and fixes to that. Apparently frSky make the Orange FAAST Rx, but not the DSM one.

Did you have to solder the wire to the board?

I have noticed they are good on releasing updates wich is a plus.

> DId you have to solder the wire to the board?
No soldering, just used the smartieparts solder less programming board and telemetrEZ board for telemetry add in, see http://www.smartieparts.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPat...

For $20 dollars you could add the extra screen to the Tx handle, which means its easier to read telemetry with a neck strap attached. I might also go this route due to this fact alone.

I have the smartie parts board installed, its very easy to do. But I saw a tutorial where you open the frsky module and solder on it and on the tx mother board you solder a couple of resistors and this cable so the telemitry show on the tx screen.


But I am not interested to do that I think if I use the telemitry I will buy this screen it works realy well.


So if you would say if some one give you the OrangeRx will you use it or wil you stick to FrSky?

The guy who made the smartieparts programmer made another board called telemtrEZ that is a no-solder solution for telemetry. The link should link to both options?

I'll stick with FrSky. I can always use a JR compatible radio if I feel I outgrow the 9X, or if FrSky release their TX I'll be happy as it will run Open9x which is a really flexible.

I saw on that link of yours. I will read up on it.

Another thing to consider is that http://store.jdrones.com/ mentioned that they are working on a Fr-Sky telemetry display. Maybe worth finding out some information if you are going to go the second display route.
