Hey John. I tried this with my JR max computer radio (72mhz) with a FrSky module, and it didn't work. The module powers up and was able to bind to the receiver but no PPM signal was coming through to the receiver. If you still have this radio, what voltage do you read on the PPM output of the radio? Mine is -1.44v for the orange wire.

Thanks!

Which version is your FrSky module? They updated it by adding a diode to ppm wire.

Mine has a diode. Found out the problem was the ppm wire needed to actually be soldered, I just had it plugged in to a pin, servo plug type thing, but I guess that was a noisy connection and messed up the ppm waveform. Do you still have this radio?

Thanks!
