Not to undermine bobthenuke; I have been using the
3M Scotch Permanent Outdoor Mounting Tape
It works great.

You can get it at Walmart

+1 for the 3M tape! It is the grey tape they use for the GoPro mounts too!

This battery just barely fits.

Well that's just wonderful! A member here even recommend it for the 9x. No I will have yet another useless lippo that never gets used. I will try to find the proper battery in China and who knows I may have it in a month or two. THANKS

I use the Eneloop batteries. They are really good, have many cycles, don't lose charge while sitting idle, and charge with the regular charge port. I don't know if they fit a 9X or not.

I tried a Lipo in my TX and didn't like it because I had to open it up and use the balance connector to charge which was a pain.

I use Eneloops for my RX battery in planes too. I can let a plane sit all winter and come back in the Spring and the battery will still have most of its charge.

You can order these right here in the USA too.

Maybe you can use your useless lipo to power an FPV ground station. It would work well for that.

I have 50 AA size Eneloops and yes they are a good battery but not in the 9X I tryed they dont fit into the battery holder on the 9X. They fit good in other transmitters like my DEVO but not the 9X

I use that one. I warm up the area first then I apply the tape. The only drawback is that it reaches maximum adhesion in 24 hours,

This lipo is made for the 9X and is in stock at the USA warehouse for $13.98:

The connector is iffy but the battery fits the 9X battery well perfectly. On mine, I sodered in a new connector with an external charge/balance plug.

Ok I will take your word for it, I just ordered it from the U.S.A. store. Now, if you have a link for the connector I need to make it work with the 9x that would be nice!. Or did you just cut the old connector off and solder it on the lippo?. I assume after this battery is installed I will be able to close the battery door? I saw this note Great pack for a Turnigy 9x, fits perfectly in the bay with enough room to tuck the balance/charge plugs to one side.

There's no need to switch the connector either! The black connector fits on to the existing pins without requiring any modifications, just match up the orientation using the color of the wires on the 8x AA pack (so that red connects to the ve and black fits to -ve). How long will this battery power the 9X and FriSky? all day or longer?

Hey goldsworthy

You are correct, the servo charge connector will fit the TX connector but I don't like the position of this or the quality of the fit so I think the simplest thing to do is to splice the connector from the AA holder onto the new lipo.

Having said that though, what I have done with all my TX's (and a few friends) is to make up two harnesses, one for charging and one that goes inside the TX. I made these by cutting in half two 3S balance extensions so I could make one female/female with two wires to solder to the TX and one male/male with a JST batt plug for charging (see pictures). With this set-up I never have to open the battery door for chargiing and the lipo's are alwways balance charged. Additionally, I can still use the original battery holder if needed (not that I ever would).

Honestly, I don't know why the Radio companies don't do their own versions of this...

Cheers!
Mark

All who use Naza, Listen UP!

This has been mentioned before but I am bringing it up again as it JUST happened to me.


DO NOT TEST OR OTHERWISE CHANGE YOUR SYSTEM SETTINGS IN NAZA ASSISTANT WITH THE PROPS ATTACHED!!


What just happened? I just downloaded the latest Naza 1.8 software and when I fired it all up, the software asked to update the FW to the latest 2.2 package. I said OK and clicked "UPDATE". I then got a message box telling what the latest changes are and asking if I want to proceed. I said "OK" and immediately

**** ALL 4 MOTORS WENT FULL SPEED ****

This lasted for about 2 seconds and no, I did not have props on, but if I had...

I think this is a serious and extremely dangerous bug with no warning from Naza assistant. At the very least, when selecting "Upgrade" the software should tell you in huge red letters "DO NOT PROCEED UNLESS ALL PROPELLORS ARE DISCONNECTED".

Really though, this just shouldn't be possible.

That is all, back to your regular programing and please be carefull out there.
