Futaba 9ch 2.4 conversion

Hello

Has anyone tried converting an older Futaba 9ch PCM/PPM 1024A (FP-T9VAP) to 2.4mhz using modules from suppliers such as Assan/Corona? I have one that has not seen a lot of use and would like to update it if possible. Thanks in advance for your help.

is the radio in question a module based radio?

if so, and the form factor of the module is identical to the more current radios (9C etc), then I would imagine the futaba module for corona/assan would be a drop-in for your 9V.

just be sure to set the modulation for PPM.

Hi Danny

Yes the tx has a removable module in the back of it that looks to be about the same dimensions as newer radios. I had asked Assan the same question and their reply was they thought that it might work but could not verify this as the transmitter is no longer supported by Futaba and not available for them to test. I was just hoping that someone might have tried it and succeeded. I may go ahead and order the Corona system and try it. Thanks for the response.
