Re: Reverse polarity mod on plain 9x.

My concern was whether the charging function would still work with the MOSFET in that position. Also I was checking that power will come on when the trainer jack is connected. I think both are OK, so those connections should be OK. Mike Oh cool. I should receive the mosfets along the week. Due to I...

Hang on, I'm not sure the diagram from João is correct. The gate is OK, but I would put the drain to the right of the existing cut (to the switch) and the source to the track leading the the connector (pin 3).

Mike

Re: Reverse polarity mod on plain 9x.

As far as I understand it, I would do it like this on an original Turnigy 9x board without upgrade boards. Mike, does this look right?

Re: Reverse polarity mod on plain 9x.

Definitelly plan is to leave the beeper. This radio is not for me but a friend of mine, so it is always better to have a beeper than nothing. About the mosfet, according to that thread, is this the one? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32884055864.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.401e6b9eoQKcBW&algo_pv...

Reverse polarity mod on plain 9x.

Hi guys, I fitted the diode in the small green PCB of my 9xtreme radio years ago, but I wonder if, for a radio with no 9xtreme, the diode needs to be fitted on the same place. Yes? no? Maybe?

Thanks, lol.

For pin 43 (PG2) there are two settings in the hardware menu:
1. Tick the box beside "PG2 as input"
2. Change the setting by the "AIL Switch" to be PG2.

Re: Add 3 pos switches to plain 9x.

To connect to the processor pins I use a small piece of stripboard glued to the main board. I then wire to the processor using single strand "kynar" wire, then use normal, stranded wire to the switch.

Re: Add 3 pos switches to plain 9x.

If this is a completely unmodified 9X, the there are 3 "spare" processor inputs available, so you should be able to change 3 switches. The spare inputs are: PC0 Pin 35 PB7 Pin 17 PG2 Pin 43 It should be a case of swapping a switch, connecting the existing ground and signal connections (ground to ce...

I assume you only get this error at power up?
I'll look at the code, this encoder is sharing the signals that connect to the EEPROM, so there is a possibility I have something not quite right at start up.

Hi Mike, yes, I have seen the error only when powering the radio on.

Re: Is this receiver compatible with the Irangex multi-module?

In my opinion you won't need gyros, you need someone to teach you how to fly. You do it alone, with or without gyros, you will crash it at best, or injure someone, yourself, or damage some property at worse. Get an RC simulator for your computer. But the most important is as I mentioned above, find...

Yes, always backup your radio's eeprom regularly.. Basically every time you change something. You can backup the eeprom to the computer (recommended), and also to the SD Card. As you might also know, you can backup models to the card or computer. João Will do! Both, no doubt of it. Some of the mode...

At the other hand, this is how my radio is looking at this very moment. It might not be super clean, but there is not a lot I can do with so many wires.
