Any 9x upgrade boards available???

Post by Neptune769 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 3:20 am

Hello Everyone,

I would like to do some upgrades to my 9x. I have the back light, Frsky DHT, USB and working on the telemetry and voice upgrade. However I wish there was still some aftermarket boards available. I want to do the bluetooth and encoder as well. It would make it much easier. I can't seem to find information on how to do the mods without an aftermarket board like the Smartie or Ersky9x board. Any help would be greatly appreciated. On a side note, is there anyone reading this from the Beaumont, Texas area?

Thanks,
Dennis L.

Encoder is possible with the stock 9x board. For the Bluetooth mod the way we have it working with trainer capabilities, you will need a more powerful board.
Unfortunately it seems that there is none available at the moment.
The only possibity would be to buy a Frsky radio. The Taranis QX7 for example comes with encoder already and I believe at least with Ersky9x that a bluetooth module could be installed..

ErSky9x on Taranis-Plus is a good option too.
ErSky9x on Taranis, Sky9x, 9Xtreme, Er9x on 9x with Smartieparts Programmer with TelemetrEZ Board

Bluetooth isn't a big deal. I do want the encoder though. I found the info on adding that. :) Thanks for the reply!
