I assume it is meant to go with this module.

I don't know if it works with the 4 or 6 channel HK Tx.

I fitted the LED monitor circuit posted by mis_b. It works a treat.

All FlySky receivers (6 and 8ch) works with every FlySky transmitters (4,6 and 8ch). all are compatible even with Turborix and HobbyCity which have just change the stickers.

Palm V / Field Programming T6A / building serial cable

I've been attempting to build a Palm serial cable for field-programming my T6A, following ReSt's excellent instructions and diagram at Post 1201 of this thread. So far so good, using a Palm V modem's case as both my Palm-side plug and to house the RS232 circuit. For the benefit of others trying the same, however, I thought I'd post one hick-up I've run into.

As has been noted here before, a PS2 keyboard plug will work in the back of the T6A Tx with the plastic tab in the middle removed. With this in mind I cut the cord off an old keyboard planning to use cord and all for my project. No go.

ReSt's diagram uses a pin on the plug ("Xmit") that is NOT CONNECTED on a typical PS2 keyboard. That means there's not even a wire for that pin inside the cable.

I haven't yet decided how I'll get round this issue but thought I would raise it here, for the benefit of the forum. I'm guessing I'll have to cut the plug off the cable and buy another to ensure all the right pins are live.

Other than that, using the Palm 5 modem case has worked well. I got it on Fleabay for 99 cents (plus shipping of course), and was able to cannibalize suitable capacitors off the circuitboard as I gutted it. It's going to look great if I can ultimately make it work.

Not all ps/2 plugs are created equal. I had to look at 3 different ones to find one that had all the wires I needed. Eventually I did and it works great.

An S-Video plug fits perfectly, with no snipping of pins or breaking of key tabs required.

I found an S-Video cable in a thrift store for $1. If you don't have one on hand, this might be a cheap way to get one.

I have a really stupid question. I looked at the FlySky manual but it wasn't covered. Does the servo leads plug into the Turborix Rx with the signal lead towards the RX body or the RX edge?

Hello

Hello,
since this topic is way too big, I tried reading it but I failed.
I'm interested to use this pair of Tx/Rx to transmit digital data using an mcu connected at each end. Is it possible?

The smaller one is for binding directly if you have good access to your Rx.
The larger one is to use if you have a three wire charging port that will accept that binding plug - might keep you from having to remove the Rx from your plane.
If the radio that you have is the 4 channel version here is a place for more info. - but since you seem to have a manual, it must be the 6 or 9 channel version - then this link is of no use to you.
However, you may have the 6 channel Rx that is sent with the 4 ch. Tx - then you could get some info for the Rx - just ignore the Tx info.
