I notice there are a bunch of models available now; DF, DJT, FF - which do I need to use with Turnigy 9X v2 with ER9X firmware? Thanks

The DJT fits the tx module bay. that's what I use on one of my 9x with er9x and the telemetry mod.
On my new 9x I use The DHT. It's the DIY module and it is installed inside the radio. The power and ppm wires must be soldered. But I regret it a little. should have bought the DJT instead..
If you're looking for an easy install go with the DJT. If later you decide to modify the 9x to receive the frsky telemetry and display it on it's LCD display, it's also possible.

Hi Guys,

I posted this on another forum but haven't had a response....hoping someone here may be able to assist.

I need some help/advice. I'm using FrSky D8R-11 Plus Rx's in my competition gliders. These models are all carbon except for the front of the fuz forward of the wing LE which is 2.4GHz friendly (glass/kevlar). I've found that the best orientation for reception with the standard antennas is across the bottom of the fuz with one (in a curved plastic tube glued to the bottom) and on top of the battery running in line with the fuz with the other. However, in some orientations I'm getting some blanketing and consequently RSSI beeps even down to 150m away. Particularly when flying towards me. I'm thinking of using one of these http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=309 OR one one of these: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=128 (in an inverted V) for the antenna over the battery.

Any suggestions which one would be best?

I would keep the battery away from the antenna. The battery is a good little metal wall. Try and keep your antenna wires as far away from other wires as you can. I know in the gliders this is far easier said then done. I also like to have one antenna vertical, and the other horizontal. It can all be done though..

All of the FrSky 400 and 600mm length antennas now have the bullet style ends like your first link. I just have not updated the photos on my website.

FrSky likes to make improvements to the product line. DHT-U now includes the FMS mounting arm, the VD5M now includes a set of micro connectors, etc.

In the fuselage. I hardly ever run an antenna out onto a wing of any planes.

Im going to convert my DX7 to FRsky using the DHT DIY kit (from Aloft hobbies)
Excellent customer support and somebody who actually picks up the phone and takes the time to answer your questions!
Any particular issues or tips with this conversion that I should know about?
Im planning not using the DMS2 module anymore, only the FRsky.
I could not find pictures or a specific build thread of this particular conversion, if anybody can so kind a point me to one It would be great!
Thanks in advance!

Good talking with you this morning.
I found this photo that I think shows the plug you need:


Taken from this web page:
http://www.fpvmanuals.com/2011/03/17...ezuhf-or-tlrs/

While they are hooking up something different, it is the same basic 3 wires you need for the DHT or DHT-U.

Strangely, this was how I originally placed the antennas ........but had many RSSI beeps even at only 150-200m. The current orientation of the antennas significantly reduced the beeps to only an occasional few. At the moment just trying to optimise the setup.

thanks

Steve

FrSky DFT module is for Futaba format, and 9x is Jr format, so you should go with DHT-U, or DJT, or DHT.

Both of these are telemetry module, for DHT & DHT-U you need to do some fine soldering work (may find some friends for help if you can't finish it yourself) and for DJT you just need to plug it into model slot which is at the back side of 9x.

You can follow the guide by Rob Thomson from 9x forums:FRSKYTelemetry.pdf

N.B.: DHT-U has it's own LCD screen and DHT don't, as for 9x v2 you need remove some plastic in side of the module slot to make DJT fit, see here.

You only need to do that if you bought one of the radios that HK is selling without module..
