Central and Eastern Auckland, New Zealand, you could call me Eastie as opposed to Westie (hi mate!)

I am handy with a soldering iron and have managed to successfully fix my own 9x with an inverted stick, install SmartieParts programmer, Frsky Telemetry DIY kit and LiFe mod.

Don't ask me to teach you to fly because I still learning!

Have just completed MiruMod on my ARDrone but waiting for opportunity to go test fly.

And am waiting for last of parts for AXN Flyer before getting lessons from the guys at the Tamaki MAC on how to fly. Bit nervous actually!

PM me and we'll go from there.

One my friend has good skills in electronics and said he is able to do mods for others also. He doesn't have RC-experience but has that whole family good electronics skills and experience.

Finnish:
Yksi kaverini (Somerolla) voi tehdä radioiden modauksia muillekin mikäli tarpeen on. Hän ei ole itse RC - harrastaja ja voi haluta pienen vaivanpalkan, mutta harrastustoimintana se silti menee. Itse osaan tässä vaiheessa avittaa aloittelijoiden kysymyksissä Opentx firmwaressa telemetria modilla ja parin viikon päästä myös ohjelmointiporttimodin jälkeen myös 9x firmiksen päivityksessä. Yhteyttä voi ottaa miten tahansa.

Thanks everyone. The list is getting larger and in more locations.

ShowMaster Los Angeles area.
Soldering good, troubleshooting good, test equipment good.
4 skyboard installs and upgrades for telemetry.
8+ er9x Frsky conversions.
2 Reversed battery repair.
1 new from HK tx that was under water we think, real mess, and one new tx with burned off traces, and bad rewiring to make it work direct from HK.

A lot of projects going all the time but I try and help when I can.
Btw,
So far in 2 years not one repair for a 9x failure using the Frsky TX and RX upgrade. Just reversed battery.
Pretty impressive.

Is there anybody in San Diego??? I have been having problems getting ER9X flashed onto my TH9X. I have smartieparts board and backlight installed but I cannot get it to work if my life depended on it. So the TX sits here collecting dust. Sure would be nice if someone in the San Diego area could help...

I'm in LA, sort of close. Tell us more about what's not going right?
What version SP board and Mac or PC, is version?
Maybe we can walk you thru it.

Well, I'm not a new design sp expert, but I do own 2 of the first v2.2 boards. 3 but that 9x has a new owner.
What I do have is 2 new pullout 9X boards and a new unused m64 CPU.
Also new LCD displays and backlight kits. Maybe even a set of new unused sticks besides a new in box 9x and receiver.
Add to that the scope Mike and Ron have and a soldering station.
If the SP board is bad that's a problem if it's providing the telemetry hookup. I'm not familiar with its new design components but can be.
If you want to absorb the 2 way ($7) shipping to LA, and the parts or board cost, I can give it a try. It can be sorted out at the lowest $ needed.
Ron's familiar with board prices and the M64 cost me $7. Replacing it would be the lower cost to try. If that fails I can credit it towards a new unused board.
I just need some dialog on a fair new board price.
The shipping is what's driving the cost up unfortunately. I'm really not doing this for profit. Just selling off new parts with labor included. If the SP board is good, you'll get a working radio back. If the SP board is bad and under warranty, that can be fixed by sending it back to SP.

What's a new board worth this year Ron, you've sold a few?

Soldering works for full telemetry support as a final option.

I'd say just send the board and sp board but I'd rather not swap it with my working 9x for testing.
We're assuming the SP board is good. I did have one fail after the second programming use and it was repaired for free.
I'd also suggest I could sell you just the new main board but if you still have trouble, my board would become suspect. It seems practical to get it back working and ready to use.

That sounds like a plan. Would you want me to send just the mainboard and SP board, or should I send the whole radio? I really liked this TX when it worked and I would like to use it again. The SP board worked the 1st time no problem, the problems started when I tried to reflash ER9X. I am wondering if it IS the mainboard since the reason for reflashing is because the TX started acting strange, with no throttle at all and ail and ele servos were reversed, not on the right channels, etc... Right now I'm using the TX that came with my RTF WL V-913, which does work, but leaves a lot to be desired.

Check the 2 way postage to 91436. If I have everything I can get it working with the parts I have. Then you'll get a working radio back. I'd like to change the CPU if it comes to that because that's the lowest cost part. A new board would be the last resort but doable.
The idea is to keep the cost to just parts needed. Unless the boards been really damaged that should fix it right up if needed. It should only be a few days to get it going unless it's a SP board issue. Btw, not my first fix ha ha.
I'll PM you my phone and email and we can get all the facts.

How Do, All!

Pardon me if I've posted this in the wrong area, but I'm new to the group.

I really like the idea of having one TX for everything & have made a couple modules with the RF sections of "toy" transmitters. (Ladybug, Syma X-1, etc...) I'm trying to find someone who can make a module that'll control an Estes Proto-X quadcopter. I used to have several links to another forum where this kind of thing was discussed, but I guess I've lost 'em.

Any help anyone can give me will be appreciated. (Here's your chance to tell someone where to go!)

I just had to fix my coffee machine. Common failure of my brand is the thermal fuse. Thanks to google, found the DIY info , and for $2, I'm back in business.
Coffee in the morning, red wine at night. I keep a manual corkscrew for the wine. If I can't use it, I've had enough.
