Re: Long shot but does anyone have a 9xtreme board FS?

So as much fun as I had in the brief time with the 9Xtreme that I did... the Jumper T16 Pro Hall came out. $160 and I get a better Horus... Yeah... 9Xtreme with the XJT will stay on as a backup and is still an extremely good radio, every bit as good as the Taranis IMO... but... the T16 is just amazi...

Re: Possible to flash FrSky receiver with ersky9x?

So self help... this guide will work the same with a 9Xtreme 9X that has the black FrSky wire soldered to pin#5 on the back 9X board which is the only mod you need to do for smartport telemetry. I have a nimh battery that usually sits over 10v so I spent the $10 to order the FTDI and some jumper wir...

Possible to flash FrSky receiver with ersky9x?

I ordered the EU X8R receiver by accident and I have a XJT I got in the USA with a 9Xtreme Turnigy 9X running the latest ersky9x. Is it just as easy as using a regular Taranis to flash the receiver to the USA firmware? Is it even needed, like... will the EU receiver just work out of the box and I sh...

Smartieparts board version 2.3 and telemetrez board

As the title states. Replaced with a 9xtreme setup so no need for them. Worked fine but wanted the extra capabilities of the 9xtreme. Come with screws, spacers and the mini usb port. Easy no solder solution to give your 9x a massive upgrade and telemetry. $50 shipped anywhere. Can include a FrSky DJ...

Re: 9XR and xjt with telemetry

If you can find one of the smartieparts boards for telemetry an XJT just needs a wire soldered to the #5 pin on the back board which is the big bare metal spot and that's literally it. I made a want ad for a 9xtreme and found one. I have a smartieboard and telemetrez board I replaced with the 9xtrem...

Re: Long shot but does anyone have a 9xtreme board FS?

Well with the Taranis battery 1.1 per cell is low so 1.1x6=6.6 as my bare minimum voltage. I'll set it at 6.8 and call it. And yes I will remember to properly pin the thing.

Yeah I have the old Smartieparts 3 plug balance to Spectrum adapter on it now so I can just plug anything with a Spectrum plug right in. I'll just swap the pins when the Taranis battery comes in so it all lines up. The battery is the 2600mah unit so I'm hoping it'll last all day without issue. It's ...

Re: Long shot but does anyone have a 9xtreme board FS?

Thanks for the heads up! If it's different I'll just have to redo the plug to match.

What is 6.8 or 7.0 a good alarm setting? Everything on the 9xtreme will get enough juice from the Taranis battery correct?

Ok well I have a brand new 7.2v Taranis 2500mah nimh with the correct balance plug to snap right into the 9Xs rear port. So I'm assuming that'll work I will just have to set my voltage alarms appropriately. 7.2v pack is enough to operate everything 100% right? Module is an XJT. I'm going to assume y...

So even with the DJT in the back of the XR it won't show telemetry on the screen? Looking more at the XR... if the X9D is $150 and they offer a fully ready to fly XR for $75-$100 it might be attractive to someone on a mega budget that does not want to spend the money/time modding a 9X I suppose.

Second guessing myself a little for ordering a 9X over a XR or waiting another 2 or 3 months for the X9D to come out. Got a Turnigy 9X without a module and then put a FrSky DJT in it, got a smartieboard and TelemetrEZ (I don't have steady hands and don't trust myself soldering) and the LCD backlight...
