Re: 9x radio v1 or v2

I read on the smartieparts site that the "A" version board was a mistake with the misplacement of the pad location. Is this true?

How can you determine if you have a TM001 or 2?

Re: Protect Fuses to stop settings being wiped on firmware u

o.k. do I get this right?
"Fuse" means to "fuse" or permanently attach code so to speak to the tx. So that it is write protected when you flash your tx. I assume the reason for this is to keep all your settings and models while updating the firmware?
... or something?

Re: er9x and simulator

I think I remember that you can only output 4 channels to a sim, is that what happened? the new model you created is only 4 channels?
can you tell me what cable you are using to connect to pc?

Re: 9X Radio

You should also note that there are 2 "generations" of the printed circuit board as well in these radios. So far I can't tell how to guarantee you'll get the gen2 one. It's only an issue if you want to mod the radio. You can read about it here... http://www.smartieparts.com/shop/index.php?main_page=...
