Jonathan, do the Hack Modules have a button or contacts for 'range test mode' ?
I'd expect not, but it would be nice...

Also do the Hack Modules have FCC certification ?

Are the hack modules different than the uncased board ?

Hi Martin,

Yes, it has a button like V8FT, V8JT. Except the layout of PCB, others are as same as current 2 Tx modules.

Sure, it has FCC certification.

Whoo hoo !
HiModel got the Futaba compatible kits in stock again.

I bought the combo plus two extra 4ch receivers.
These should have the revised lower power level range check. Will let you guys know as soon as I get it.

Conversion of a MX-16s Sinthesized transmiter


I installed a JR module on a MX-16s transmitter, I follow the this procedure http://www.mikrokopter.de/ucwiki/JetiUmbau. I tried to install is inside of the transmitter but due to the shorter cable to the antenna I had to install it outside, what in terms of size off all transmitter is not so good. So my suggestion is in hack modules the antenna cable should be longer my be around 14 centimeters.

After some time I notice some jitter on the servos that I connect just to test the module TX and RX, looking to the display of the transmitter First i thought it was some interference of the 2,4ghz RF in the control module of the tx, and put all the cable way but the problem continue. Looking to the TX I saw the bar graph of the voltage indicator was moving slightly up/down. I took the scope and saw a lot of ripple in the power line generated by the module. I connected the power of the module directly to the battery terminal but there was no difference at all. the I installed 2 4.7uF tantalum capacitors in the input of the module in parallel with 10uF capacitor and the problem almost disappear. No bar voltage display moving, we can not ear any jitter from the servos.
Does any one had a similar problem?

I apologize for the second post but inadvertently I press the "submit replay".

Hallo Manuel Silva,
what you noticed is a problem I think with all the 2,4 Ghz stuff, because of not
contiued transmission.All moduls have a burstwise transmittting. We made hack with a
flysky modul and the same thing occurs.With a 47 uF capacitors on the input of the modul
it was no problem.

with friendly regards

Werner, thanks for the information. I am going to increase the capacity as well as change the power wire gauge.

We just landed out first drop of Hack modules here in NZ today. DX7 is getting cracked open tomorrow. ;-)

Will post a vid of the mod here if I don't blow my DX7 up. ;-)

Chase or Jonathan,
I believe there is a 6 and 7 channel receiver due out soon. Can you tell me when Himodel might have these in stock?
Thanks,
Curtis

I have been given word that the 7ch is ready to order from FrSky. So expect shops to have it in the next week or two.

Does this new receiver provide telemetry at least for the batter status and signal strength ?

Nope it is just a lightweight 7ch full range rx. Ideal for helis and gliders that can't fit a bulky 8ch rx.
