Re: Frsky Taranis Plus - Power Adapter voltage range?

Hi Kilrah - thats what i was hoping to find out! ... If it's got 110-240V as the range of voltage, then all i need is a US - AUS plug converter which is easy enough to source.

I don't have it yet which is why i was asking - thanks!

Frsky Taranis Plus - Power Adapter voltage range?

Hi All, I'm trying to find out what the input voltage range of the standard power adapter that is shipped with the Taranis or Taranis Plus might be? For charging up the internal Ni-Mh battery. Mine is being shipped from the US and will be supplied with the standard US plug and will obviously work wi...

Kilrah, By the look of your pics, you moved the rudder/elevator servos to open up the space inside the body? ... Where did you move them to? Any chance of some more pics? I have a spare AXN body and so have been thinking about using it for a first FPV setup. What other components did you use? Any in...

Re: er9x internally and external module usage

Re: LiFe Battery Pack

Max charged voltage for the LiFE will be 10.8V but it drops very quickly to 9.9V and then stays there for a very long time with "normal" Tx usage. I'm currently flying every weekend and only recharging every 3-4 weeks

Re: Frsky module - using with standard F/W?

Scott, You can use the separate FrSky display screen (FrSky FLD-02 - LCD Display) that can be attached to the 9x (separate mounting kit). This will sound the alarms that you set separately from the 9x however! But it does make it a little more visible. This runs with the ER9X or NHT versions of the ...

Check out rcmodelreviews on YouTube (or the forum), he's flown fpv with 5.8Ghz For video and FrSky 2.4Ghz for the plane and flew to around the 2km mark. Videos were from about a year ago from memory? You do want to make sure you've got a RTL capability if youre going that far though
