Cheers for the support!
Posted this in the wrong thread so I'll update it. Are the 71/91 quads or helis? If the WL-T6 is compatible to the FS-T6 with an adapter, that would not be a bad combination to add to a V911, V912, and V922 set.

Check out the contents in detail here: http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-Ne...0-p-65107.html

You may get a converter / adapter; that should work.
It looks as though one of the adapters in this kit would work, but the kit is $13. Would be nice to find just the adapter.

Or maybe this one will work?

I'm sure you can find the adapter without resorting to buying a complete USB simulator kit. You may want to refer to this page to find out the name of the compatible connector, and search for it on eBay:

But getting a simulator is not a bad idea. I spend a lot of time on the simulator because it is fun.

I was thinking that too. I have that simulator adapter, too bad I don't have a WL-t6 and FS-t6 to test it on!

Found this thread looking for info on the FS-T6 and it looks to have the exact same connector as your TX. Maybe worth a shot.

I've just joined an indoor flying club here as a result of a very kind invitation received after I made an rcgroups post. I've noticed nearly everyone there is using Spektrum transmitters, with scratch built planes using the Spektrum "bricks", or Lemon micro Rxs, or with RTF planes such as the various Vapors, Embers, T28s, Cubs, Champs etc. from Horizon Hobby.

This is Australia, so I'm guessing this situation would be even more common in the US.

I'm thinking what a huge market there would be for a module that would plug into a trainer port of say a Spektrum DX6i and support the FlySky protocol that is used by the WLToys V9X9 quads, the very popular V911 heli and the recent WLToys planes such as the F929, F939 and F959, as well as all the various quads and helis mentioned in this thread that use the same FlySky protocol. Excellent though the Horizon Hobby products are, some of the Chinese products are just as much fun to fly and much cheaper.

Does anyone agree, and is there any hope that someone will come out with such a module?

My self interest is that I am becoming very interested in the "brick"out of the F929 etc that is very capable, pretty light and available as a spare very cheap from Banggood and a couple of other places. I'd like to have some others in the club using it as they are far in advance of me as scratch builders! I want to learn. However, I can't expect them to buy a Turnigy 9X or similar, or a Devo, when they have perfectly good Spektrum or JR DSM2 transmitters already.

I agree that it would be a huge market but I don't know of any modules being sold or promoted that would do that. But going the other way is something that is done, i.e. using a Devo 7e or 10 to fly both FlySky and DSM2/X. My other favorite protocol the Devo can fly is FrSky. It has telemetry and failsafe. I don't use it yet but the Rxs for it are cheap and it's much more capable. The only hope for anyone making a DSM2/X compatible Tx module that I would trust is Lemon-Rx.

I have a DX6i but not a Devo. If I were to buy a new Tx, it would be a Devo 10 or better. I had thought maybe a version of a FS-9X would work. But it would have to be an Orange module that plugs in and I don't have the confidence in them that I have in a Lemon-Rx or Spektrum product.

I think the best strategy to get others to use the brick is to have your buddies buy a FS Tx. There are plenty available below $50 and a few below $100 that are good quality.

The large FlySky Tx at $25.35 that comes with the V913 is not too bad and would be a great way to fly the brick from a F9x9 if nothing needs changing.

If you need something programmable, you could use the $7 DH 9116 Tx. The shipping cost to Oz may not make it a good option though.

Hi Don

Thanks for the comments and links. Here in Oz the postage costs for items posted from the US are usually quite crippling, whereas most things can be got from China post free if you are prepared to wait.

I think it's very hard to convince anyone who is used to a computerised radio, even a modest one like the DX6i, to ever make do with less.

I've just ordered one of these http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-FS...m-p-66598.html so that I need only my Taranis, with this module and the Orange DSM2/X module I already have to fly everything I've got, and perhaps dispense with my 9X and DX6i for good. For outdoor flying with larger models the FrSky Rxs would then be a good solution.

HI Aurie. Can you tell me the banggood product is FrSky or if it's FlySky compatible? I asked on the BG site but there has been no response. The description doesn't say.

Lemon-Rx is also based in China but does charge for shp, at least here to the states, but not that much. You could also use their products with your DSM2/X module I believe. You might want to check out the thread. I have 2 DX6i's so I can buddy box with my g/kids. So you might want to keep a 2nd compatible Tx. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2164243
Don
P.S. Just in case you may want a buddy box cable. http://store.rcfunlab.com/6_Trainer_...cac-bbc-06.htm
I don' t know much about electronics but I think any mono audio cable will work with the right connections. At least that's what I've read.
