Help connecting my bfight 210 to a Turnigy 9x


Hi everybody - noob questions here: I'm trying to connect my bfight 210 to my Turnigy 9x - I've never flown a quadcopter before and am brand new at this. This post has been incredibly helpful in letting me understand how to connect the two:

But one problem - I have a Turnigy 9x radio instead I'm trying to connect it to. A few questions: Are there PPM mini receivers for the Turnigy 9X that I can buy? I'm not seeing anything through google. The description in the thread above makes it pretty clear about where to solder in the wires for a mini receiver.

I've also got one of these lying around, but am unsure of how to connect it with my flight controller: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hobby-ki...er-6ch-v2.html
Is there a certain connector/wires I need to connect this with my flight controller?

Thanks in advance for any help!

If you're using the stock transmitter module in the back of the 9X, then it won't work with a PPM receiver. You'll either have to use a PWM receiver, which that HK one is, or remove the Turnigy module (see youtube vids), and swap in a different Tx module.

That BFight 210 looks pretty short on space, so good luck with fitting a PWM receiver in there.

If you use a PWM to PPM encoder you could kludge in a PWM receiver, but like was mentioned previously you would run into space issues with that aircraft.

If I was doing this, I'd buy a FrSky XJT TX module and a FrSky XM+ receiver.

With that said, when you setup the radio, make sure you create a new model with an AIRPLANE profile. No heli swash plate stuff at all...

Even a DJT would help. At least then, OP could use a PPM receiver with failsafe and decase the receiver for more room, but even then it's only 2014-ish or so which is an ice age in multirotor years.
