2.4G 4CH Mini Frsky D8 Compatible Receiver With PWM Output ( PT1 )

2.4G 4CH Mini Frsky D8 Compatible Receiver from Banggood

Item Name: 2.4G mini receiver ( $7.99 USD )
Channel: 4CH
Weight: 2.2g
Resolution: 1024
PWM Output: Yes
Operating Voltage: 3.5-10V
Current: 50MA
Antenna Length: 100mm
Dimension: 11mm*24.5mm
Control Range: >500M+
Compatibility: Compatible with frsky X9D (D8 Mode), XJT (D8 Mode), DJT, DFT, DHT

I got myself the smallest Rx I could find that will accept plugs from normal servos ..
I was surprised at just how small it is .
The servo connector wires / posts (?) need to be soldered to the board .. ( They should be pre soldered ) But !
This Rx is so light , some one may wish to solder the servo wires directly to the board to save weight .
The last picture shows my soldering !

Next I will bind to my Taranis Q x7 ( hopefully ) and range test the Rx ( Part 2 )

It be stinky hot outside ...

36 deg C ... I am not going out there ( sorry )

I bound the Rx to my Taranis Q x7 = Easy .... And then made a range test box . ( Pictured )

Bind process ....

I went into the menu of the Q x7 and created a new model ..
Then set the transmitter to D8 ( 1-8 ) mode ...
Then set the Tx into bind mode :

With the Tx in the bind mode :

Rx .
I had connected a UBEC to Ch1 and a servo to Ch4 ..
Before applying power I press and hold the bind button and whilst holding the bind button apply power to the Rx .
The bind is almost instantaneous ...
I let go the bind button and disconnected power to the Rx ... ( Get the Tx out of bind mode )
Turning on the Rx again - it was bound to the Tx ...

Tomorrow should be much cooler than today ( 12 deg C cooler ) and I will then range test the Rx ...

Looks great! I saw your review on Banggood! I want one of these for my Baby Baron, but I dont wanna have to wait for it to ship from China. How long did yours take? They also have some on Amazon, but probably not much better there.

Usually takes a little over a week ..
If its out of stock ? Then maybe a lot longer .
Too many variables , but plan on a week .

Do you have a range-test result yet? I have a couple of these, but have only flown in a tiny glider. Thanks!

Good day, old4570

This looks good for foamies. Does it have RSSI telemetry?

Don't know ? My guess would be no as they be very basic Rx
