Any word on whether you will support the 14MZ/12FG anytime soon?

We don't know. Most people that really want 12FG spport, they put our module inside of the transmitter. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of interest in this support.

Could MPX Cockpit SX be converted using MPX EVO module? It has been successfully converted using other modules (Assan, FrSky and Corona). The Cockpit is currently on sale in Europe and it is a real bargain for that class of Tx.

Thanks,

Zoran

Yes, you just need a simple 3 wire servo pin --> Universal plug and use our universal module.

The Evo module might work with the Cockpit SX if the transmitters use the same RF modules. The SX uses the same case and is a later transmitter so they may have used the same RF module.

The Cockpit SX module is not removable, so it is not interchangeable with Evo module. "Hack" solution is required to convert the SX XXMHz version to 2.4GHz.

Interesting. I have owned the Cockpit MM and loved it. In fact, I still have one for my older RES models and really prefer it to the Evo except for the lack of even one free mixer. I have considered converting the Cockpit MM with XPS universal module but it just wasn't worth the trouble.

The SX requires that you disable the stock RF module. We converted a couple of them for the guys in Australia. The MM is the one where our board just plugs in via a 3 pin connector.

I didn't realize the MM installation was that simple. Is there more information on your web site? I seldom use my Cockpit MM but might consider converting it to get completely away from 72.

I don't know if there is info on our site. I do have some install pictures, so at some point we did have some info. I will see if I can dig up some stuff.

hi, doing the MM is very similar except you have to remove the RF board to gain access to the plug if you want to hard wire it in. The alternative is to use a DIN plug and again bridge 3 and 5 this time within the plug, not as neat but does allow you to use the installed RF system by simply unplgging the module.
In the SX install one can wire a dpdt switch and turn off the module and restore the original RF system.
If antone wants a diagram and I will dig it up, Richard

Cockpit MM install


Here are the pics of the Cockpit MM installation. You remove the stock RF module and use a short cable with our 1.25mm Molex connector on one end, and a standard servo connector on the other.

The stock antenna is also removed and our antenna assembly installed. Makes for a VERY clean installation that can be easily changed back to stock if you want.

Note: crystal removed!
