Broke my Turnigy 9X antenna

Anyone know where I can get a replacement part for this? I've tried searching online but all I come up with is antenna mods; just trying to replace what I've got for now as I'm too new to realize I need to mod it

Thanks, all!

If the antenna wire is soldered inside the module, you're probably better off getting another module with the antenna attached to it directly.

Where did you get that 9x ?

The 9x normally does not come with 2..4Ghz antenna fitted to the top position. That is usually plugged with a plain button after Turnigy remove the old telescopic FM antenna.

Some one has fitted the 2.4GHz stub antenna there ...

What module are you using in the radio ... the little I see in your photo appears not to be FlySky or FrSky .... because those have the antenna fitted to the module - NOT the Tx case.

To be honest - given the mod to your radio - I would be inclined to tape it back together as a fixed antenna ... that is as long as the internal wire is undamaged.

If the antenna is screw fitted with standard fitting ... then :

available in varuous locations .. USA etc.

or this ...

Every 9X I've ordered from HK had the antenna mounted at the top with a wire running down and out of the module cavity into the module itself. The Flysky TH9X has the antenna mounted on the module directly.

Sorry - yes ... I forgot - the Turnigy that had the module fitted had the modified antenna ... shows just how much sleep last few days .. lack of !!

It's the bare bones 9x that had the button ...

Then the antenna I linked to with extended lead should be a good replacement then ...

see the thread below, post 178

I bought a new wi fi antenna and reverse SMA cable at Fry's.
A hole was drilled on the module for cable entry , then ,
cut and soldered the coax cable directly to the module,
As you may see in the picture, the cable was routed externally.

good luck, Jure Z.
