devo deviation hack and module services


UPDATE: DROP IN 4 IN 1 MODULE IN CIRCULATION!!!! YAY!!!! It is a very easy to use drop in unit/module. The soldering required is VERY minimal compared to before. Just hook up the three wires (each one represents a module) to the right ports (such as TMS, TCK, B7, c9, c10, etc) and you are all set. NOTE: Devo 7e is the exception for ease of installment, its a little more involved with soldering but still much easier than before. Devo 6s and 10 are the easiest as the ports for the fourth module are readily available. Devo 8s and other radios may involve adding the fourth module to the chip. Cheers everyone!

Another person worth checking out is Mr. Tom Z, his mini cp and v120d02s heli settings are lifesavers.

SHOUT OUT:

The Walkera Devo tx with Deviation hack and external modules is simply an awesome peace of software/machinery combo. If you don't know about it, you better ask somebody (or google it). I want to take a moment give credit and big thanks to Phractured Blue and his team of international genius friends for their selfless passion to the hobby; as well as many other members from RCGroups (many of them with links in this same page) whom took the time to write tutorials, take pictures, videos, answer questions, etc. Thanks to them, I was able to take my tx apart, add modules, hack it, put it back together, and use it without issue. With my modded devo 6s, I can now fly both my proto x and v272 with the same quality tx and in mode 4; something I could not do otherwise. Also, with this same controller, I can buy BNF for virtually all brands of helis on the market. For me this was a big deal, as having different transmitters is space consuming, time consuming, battery consuming, and money consuming. The simplicity of using one quality radio is priceless to me. Anywho, moving along.


WHAT I OFFER:
Can add modules to your devo 6s, 7e, 8s, or 10. This will allow you to fly more helis than the devo deviation hack by itself will allow.
Hacking just by itself is very easy, so I will not offer this service. Adding modules is a bit more time consuming and challenging. Some people simply do not have the time, expertise, or the equipment. Personally, if I had had a choice, I would have paid someone to do it for me; it would have saved me weeks of research, waiting for parts, staying up all night soldering and de-soldering, etc.

I will not be doing the range mod for the devo 7e; reason for this is that there are many confounding factors to range, and results can be subjective from person to person.

I charge $50 for labor, and am located in Southern California. I do not pay shipping.

I am offering this service as i wish it was available to me when i wanted it for my devo 6s.

I have a day job, take college classes, and have a family; so please know it will not be the fastest service out there. However, I am not inconsiderate and will not sleep on an order; will get it out ASAP. Average turnaround time for orders has been one or two days from receipt of radio.

Recommendation of radio:
Simply put, Devo 6s if you want small size, devo 8s if you want regular size radio. Both these radios are worth their weight in gold after modding. The touch screen is a great option that allows easy viewing and option navigation, and both radios are well equipped in the switches and channel department. They also offer full range. On the slightly more economical side, if you have to choose between devo 7e and devo 10, i would encourage others to choose devo 10 (it is regular size). Devo 7e (small size) has less switches, less range, less screen real estate, etc. If you have a regular devo 7 i am unable to help. The regular devo 7, aka the devil 7, is not a modifiable radio.

After hacking both my 6s and devo 7e at the same time, I quickly got frustrated with the devo 7e in binding, naming the models, graphing, etc. its simply inferior everywhere. However, if it does not bother you none, buy and enjoy. To each his own.

if interested in module adding services, let me know.

-Jonathan

Radios sale:
I have noticed that the best deals are found on rcgroups classifieds, ebay, and banggood.com. Below are what i consider to be fair price ranges including shipping:
Devo 8s: $150-$220
Devo 6s: $150-$200 (very hard to find radio, walkera is making the unavailable (the fools). On the second page of this thread i go into a litttle more detail on this radio.

Devo 10: $100-$130
Devo 7e: $40 - $70

Materials:
banggood.com seems to have the best prices, availability, and you cant beat free shipping. Delivery time averages between 1 and 2 weeks. Quick tip though, order every item separate for faster delivery. If one item is missing they hold your order. Since shipping is free there is no real monetary penalty.

Courtesy of HappyHarry;

"best way is to adjust freq-fine in increments of 20 until it binds, write down the number it binds at. keep incrementing by 20 until it wont bind, write down that number, then set freq fine to the middle range of the 2 numbers. ie it first binds at +20 and stops binding again at +90, set freq-fine to +55"

I've done modules on a 7e a few times and I still wouldn't want to do it for $40. If Jon's work is good, it's well worth $40. You might as well add switches to the 7e while you're in there.

Sorry, I dont fully understand your question as I am not familiar with orange open source. For the devos 6s, 7e, 8s, and 10 you can install/hack "deviation" very easily, which willl alow you to fly many different brands of receivers and brands/companies (however, not all of them). Its very easy to do that havk.

To fly hubsan and wl toys however, you need to add/install two different modules to your tx to be able to fly them with a devo. I will post a link soon on a list that tells you what module for what heli matchup.

Thank you. Mr Tboc just wrote me and showed me how he added external antennas and switches to his 7e. Looks real clean; i want to be able to provide this as well and may very soon be asking him for pointers. Could you please post your pic for this thread?

$40 dollars is what i will charge for now, i imagine the demand is not that great and i enjoy working with my soldering station. If everything kicks off for some crazy reason and i get alot of requests i might charge later on down the road $50 at the most. Anything past that i dont feel would be attractive.

One thing i will not do at the moment is the long range mod on the 7e. I think its dumb walkera purposely downgraded the devo 7e range. I have not done it before and feel uncomfortable short circuiting components in a radio. Maybe later on I will offer the long range mod for 7e.

This is what my devo 6s looks like with two extra modules installed.

Regular wires on one module, magnetic wires on the other. (I was experimenting). Magnetic wires take less space, just harder to prep the ends for tinning and soldering.

This is another 7E that I did one module on. I don't recommend mounting the module without a pigtail on the antenna the way I did here. It caused problems later. The ribbon cable came out nice on this one though.

Sorry, no, it does not.

Additionaly, I dont know if the deviation team has any intentions to add deviation to the Devo F12E in the future.

I would look into their website deviationtx.com for additional insight

so just to make sure that I understood this correctly:
I have to have the TX and the modules, and ship it to you and then you "assemble" everything and then ship it back and charge 40$ plus shipping?

That is one way of doing it, yes.

Shipping has to be tracked.

An alternate way would be you tell me what you want, i buy all the materials, and then send it out; pretty much premade devos with requested modules. the problem with this method is it takes long because of chinese slowboat shipping and the occasional backorder.
