Anybody have a Flysky module with ant. for cheap? Just got my v911 in with no way to fly it...

Figured this might be an area where people have extra 9X stuff laying around since most just got the 9XR...

No it does not have a JST plug so you will need to solder one on. Dont confuse it with the balance connector which you probably dont want to change as usually is needed for charging.

You need a JST plug B3 per http://www.eflightwiki.com/eflightwi..._Balance_Plugs

It looks to have two discharge plugs. One looks like the balance type plug (which I thought is what is needed)

This is plug it will likely have.




I have many if you need one when you get your stuff.

I do however, agree with gruntboy for most part. The 9xr is a pre modded 9x. It'll be interesting to see if telemetry on screen is an included feature.

That's pretty much my take. I've got a 9x with backlight and er9x, and it's really nice. Add in some improved sticks(?) and it will be a pretty nice unit.

I wouldn't be surprised if they plan on moving forward with their own er9x software if they add telemetry.

I asked this over in the telemetrez thread but will ask here too. Would Telemetrez work with the 9XR to get telemetry from a Frsky DJT appearing on the screen? Any firmware issues?

Telemetrez relies on the connections between the board and switches/accessories. So far nobody knows if they've kept the same wiring as the 9x.

Stock 9xr firmware seems too old to include telemetrez support, so upgrading would likely be needed.

they could have use the unused pins of the module to make them ready to be used with frsky telemetry units,
working with frsky yo make personalized units in order to pass the data to those pins

lot of cheap improvements lacks in 9xr,

remove the handle radio is a big mistake, how to use a radio stand now ? or how to attach an LRS box...
without the handle how you attach a Frsky LCD ?
you also can't protect the antena of a external module,

Yea, they should have at least put a typical handle on the back, or integrated a stand.

There are many things they got wrong in the design, and none of it is forward thinking. Actually a step back in some aspects.

The exclusion of the telemetry port was a conscious one. They knew what they were doing. Unless, it happens to be on the unused module pins, and the module they are supposedly working on with FrSky will interface to the module pins so no external cable or crazy wiring is needed. From their point, that would be the ideal method of telemetry connection for the 9XR FrSky module.

Just FYI , the second batch was just in, and at -12 now. My order first day was a back order and now its updated in my account as in stock. So back orders for the last few days should be shipping.

FWIW, DSM2/DSMX support in ER9X is through using the module from a DX4e, which does not use PPM as the input. It uses serial data.
This has several advantages over using PPM:
-No PPM conversion delay
- Serial data is presented at the correct speed, so RF output is in sync. Non synchronized can produce 1 to 2 frame delays.
- Model match capability
- True 11msec frame rate ( not implemented in the release code, but it does work )

If the HK module only uses PPM it will never have as low a latency as is possible using the DX4e module. If they were clever they will have made their module auto detect the type of signal. Time will tell if this is the case.
