Re: Trouble flashing er9x with eePe

Hi Shad, Heng Long and Taigen will never work with any hobby grade radio. (except the new Taigen MFU that allows a hobby grade receiver to be plugged on it) Those things use some kind of propietary protocol. So they wont work with other thing but their own crappy controllers. The others should be ok...

Re: Trouble flashing er9x with eePe

Hi Joao, I am trying to help this gentleman too. He sent me photos of his radio. The radio is the newer hobbyking version, with the newer module and receiver. The processor was indeed the Atmega 64. I provided him all the ideas I had, but I hope you guys can guide him better. Some months ago I flash...

Re: What else can I upgrade in my radio?

Feels good! The vibrations are not super strong, but I think is strong enough, definitelly more than noticeable. I am glad I bought the new bigger motors instead of the tiny ones I bought at the beginning. The only down with the motors, are the noise they make. Is more noise than I expected... But w...

Another mod I have on my radios is a self made switch board with a circuit that will keep the radio and RF module ON if the power switch goes bad.

They won't be controlled directly by the 9xtreme board, but by the transistor.. But talking about safety, did you do the 100 ohm resistor mod in line with the RF module signal, pin 1 in the module bay? That resistor should protect the processor pin. By the way, NEVER insert or remove the RF module ...

Lol, according to your photo, your motors seem to be like a half cm bigger! About one third! And of course the flat side helps. How is the vibration in your radio? Does it vibrate well enough?
