Wanted
Multiplex evo9 2.4 conversion

I'd like to upgrade my evo to 2.4. I figure I try here first before I venture buying a new one. If you have one for sale please let me know.

Thank you.

Just converted my Evo 12 after the 72Mhz module went out for the third time. Switched to the XPS system. Took me all of 5 minutes to convert it. Never looked back.....

I have the ASSAN hack from Hobby King in mine. Most of my friends use the same setup in their gear as well. I have both 72 and 2.4 using a locking toggle switch to select the desired transmission mode.

I converted my Evo9 with Assan hack module as well and it works great without any problem. There's no instructions, but check out the assan thread on the radio forum. Tons of information there. It's a DSSS 2.4 system, and the cost of rx's are dirt cheap ($23.00 at hobbyking). I'm using them for all of my planes except for some high end gliders.

Same experience as Adrian. I only use 72 on my big planes and gliders. I'll try to get some photos of the installation up this wekend. I didn't do the install. One of my friends did our radios together. He's one of those electronic genius types.

evo conversion

Thanks again for eveyone's reply. I am not planning to buy another radio. I am planng to start flying larger electrics (maybe a trex500), and i was woundering from people with Evo how safe the hack might be as suppose to the xtreme module.

I like the radio and feel confortable. I flew a 450 just fine the way it was but not sure if larger helicopters will do the same.

thanks again.

I switched my EVO 9 to 2.4 with a Spektrum module. It works great, I've had no problems with Spektrum receivers that weren't my fault. I sold all of my 72mHz receivers, I'm not going back.

spectrum module

Dave,

Thanks for your reply. I've noticed that there are quite a few conversions outhere. When you say spectrum module you are talking about xtreme module XPS? Not to sure about the hack on large helicopters.

Where can i purchase the conversion spectrum for Evo if it is not from xtreme? A bit pricy for $199.

thx again.
