Congratulations! I just got a Flash 5 that I intend to be my FrSky transmitter. No telemetry, but longer range. Module is $15.80 at HK. Here's some info on that:

FrSky (ACCSTis) is a different 2.4 than the 9x (DSSS.) You can get a FrSky module for the 9x. The new FrSky D8 systems have two-way telemetry. If it is a D series, maybe you should hold on to it and save up for a 9x module...

I'll take it, if you don't want it. Never enough receivers now that I have discovered the joy of DollarTree foam.

BTW, FlySky is compatible, but FrSky is not. Took me a while to notice the difference a few months ago. FlySky makes their own, Turnigy, iMax and HK. FrSky makes a different system with telemetry and a longer range.

Well I have the old module I pulled out of an old HKT6A, but it doesnt look like the modules you can buy. I'll see if I can wire it up, and if it's not, Ill let you know.
Thanks.

HKT6A is a FlySky radio and is the same as the Turnigy/iMax. I am not sure about the current V2 stuff. I use the HK receivers with my 9x and FlySky CT6B (the original of the HK badged systems.) I was searching, but it is late and I have to go sit with my son to help him get to sleep. You'll know soon enough when you wire it up.
Thanks.

No need to consider me, but i just wanted to compliment Gavin for his generosity. I hope someone who really needs this system receives it. Bravo!
