Re: 9Xtreme not working after flash

Steve - I may not have conveyed it ideally too - my apologies if that was the case. Apologies not necessary. I did clean all contact pads and the push pins on the 9XT board, and that's actually when I stopped getting any LED response when I turned the tx on./quote]Ok, so that leads me to a question...

Re: 9Xtreme not working after flash

After reading your post here, I think I misunderstood what you were saying originally in our email discussion. From that discussion, I believed your firmware was corrupted as it sounded like the USB connection failed mid-update. But that's not what it sounds like you are describing here. I still sus...

Re: 9Xtreme V2? Or Discontinued?

I appreciate that. Regarding the reverse polarity... you may be surprised at how many of the 1000pcs went to replacing blown up units :) Regarding sales, risk, etc... it is an expensive product to make and the problem is that 1000pcs is kind of a minimum order. If sales continued at the same pace we...

Re: Big Problem with my 9xtreme radio.

Beats me. I searched through all my suppliers and no positive hits. I've sent out a few emails to Chinese distributors.

That part number does get a hit for Lattice Semi, which makes custom FPGA chips but I can't imagine a cheap product like this would go FPGA.

Weird.

Re: 9Xtreme V2? Or Discontinued?

I am fairly confident they are JST ZH (1.5mm pitch) connectors. I'd say 95% sure. I'm not at the computer I'd need to be at to confirm for sure. [edit: confirmed]

Here is an example eBay listing

Given that shipping is free, that's probably your best bet.

Thanks for the feedback. First, I don't really see a "V2" as being something sold to existing 9Xtreme owners. I'm sure a few would buy it, but I don't think the majority would see it as a big enough benefit to justify re-purchase. From my perspective, I have to view those few as a "bonus". And reall...
