New iRangeX IRX4+ ( plus ) PPM mode


9x and the iRangeX IRX4 plus module bound to my JJRC H36 (2 min 30 sec)


Must be a real Bear for folks that dont want to run Open Tx , flash their firmware , or learn something new just to have fun !
Well iRangeX has brought out the IRX4+ ( plus ) which allows folks to just run PPM output and manually select the protocol from the back of the module .

Both my 9XR and 9XR pro have been flashed with firmware that allow the use of the older IRX4 module .
So the only Transmitter I had lying around gathering dust ( literally ) was my older Flysky 9x . Now the original module did not fit the 9x due to the design of the IRX4 case around the pins .. This has been corrected with the IRX4+ and I am happy to say the new IRX4+ fits in the back of my 9x perfectly .

To use the new IRX4+ one merely needs to chose PPM for the output , pop in the module and chose the protocol to run ..
From 1 to 15 there is no green light . From 16 - 31 you need to activate the green light .
Activating ( de ) the green light .

Push down the bind button , turn on the transmitter , hold the bind button for about 3 seconds - green light comes on .. Now you can select a protocol from the 16 - 31 range .
The JJRC H36 uses protocol 16 and binds automatically when the transmitter is turned on .
To turn off the green light = Push the bind button and turn on the Tx holding the bind button for about 3 seconds .

You need to be out off the green mode to chose between serial mode and PPM mode .. ( If you move the module from Tx to Tx as I have done )

So there you have it ! Now you can play with a multi protocol module and not have to change your Firmware . Just be aware there are fewer models to chose from in PPM mode ..

I purchased the IRX4+ from Banggood and FYI the price has just recently been lowered ...

I did not have to move channels around with the 9x , but I did have to reverse two channels . Also may I suggest activating throttle hold before playing .. So setting up the model was relatively easy compared to say Open Tx where usually I have to re assign channels when setting up a new model . I can see how this can be challenging and may take away from what should be a heap of fun ..

Well , now you have the IRX4+ to play with in PPM mode ..

Any difference in range from internal to module RF unit?

I've only used my 4-in-1 for tiny models so far, but just installed an unused FlySky R6B into a small 1/2A plane. It will be odd to not have telemetry/ dual antennas again.

I converted to FrSky 3-4 years ago after my old FlySky tx lost 2 kit-built planes in 10 minutes. Since then I've had my 6 old FlySky R6B receivers laying around.

I am sorry , I dont know ..
This module is in my Taranis Q X7 99.99% of the time ...
I put it in the Flysky 9x to see if it would work in PPM mode .
So far I have had no range issues with the module in my Taranis , if anything it has range tested rather well . ( DSM2 receivers )

When I bind this to a JJRC H36 the blades run full speed. Sticks seem to make no difference.

Interesting ...
Make sure your channels are correctly configured ..
AETR

Enable throttle cut ..

A) First I would make sure I have throttle cut set up .
B) Then I would make sure my channels are correctly set up
C) Some channels may need reversing ..

In my Taranis my H36 is set up

Mine do not ...

Deviation is ported to MJX Bugs 3 ... I have a MJX Bugs 6 and the protocol allows me to use my Jumper T8SG+

I would check the firmware updates and see if it is on the latest update .. ( IRX4 )

I have not updated my IRX4 ..
Rather I am waiting for a new Module to be released , something more plug and play , or plug in your USB cable and flash ...
