Hey Bing, any radio that you have with a plug in module RF unit will be the easiest to convert. I have a JR 3810 and it was genuinly a 5 minute job to fit the DL. By using the module pins you don't need a secondary power source for the DL either like you do using the trainer port. And it's not a permanent conversion. I can whack the 36MHz module back in whenever I want. Easy

Wow...is this the Dragon Link thread or the 'I love my 9X thread'? Course...gotta say, I have a Multiplex Royal Evo 9 Tx...and prefer my 9X over it. I only wish my 9X had two 3-way switchs vs just one.

Just do a Rotary to 3 way switch mod. I changed 2 of them to 3 way switches for FY-31AP usage. Takes about an hour.

Oh really...Hmmmm...sounds inticing. So you just dropped a 3-way in place of the rotary, attached wires, and done?

Hi Mike

Sorry to repost, but you missed mine when answering.

"I have received my 2 new receivers today. The one worked perfectly, binded and calibrated immediately, the other one binded and then died. There are no leds and no movement at all. Is there anything I can do bearing in mind that I am far from you

Ben"

I also sent you an e-mail

Ben

Check my blog for DL and 9X connection info...easy peasy. You'll need to pop out your Frsky module to connect the DL .

You hook it up just like any other receiver you would use. ESC into the throttle channel on the DL, or preferably power it with an external BEC. Use the PPM out channel (it used to be channel 12) to go to your Eagle Tree OSD and there is also an RSSI pin out that will go to your ETOSD (you will probably only hook up signal with this one, no ground). Hope that helps

I don't have one on hand at the moment, I'm not at home. I'm sure someone on here will be able to deliver a picture or a diagram soon. If not, I'll try to do it when I get home.

Like don't calibrate with servo's attached. (I wonder why people would do it anyway)
Haha, sorry guys, have been so hooked to this forum, I completely forgot to look on the DL website!! Haha, can you imagine that...

Thanks!!

Perhaps Mike or someone else can help me out?

I just received my DL. When I connect the tx to my Futaba trainer port and turn it on, the led on the DL tx does not light up at all. I checked the voltage coming out of the trainer port cable that is fed into the DL tx, it is 7.6 volts. Trainer cable is connected to the "radio" plug in the DL tx.

Am I missing something? Is there a hidden on/off switch on de DL tx that I am not aware of?
I fear there might be something wrong with it, because when I plug the cable into the DL tx the pcb board seems to move inside the case.
