Re: 9Xtreme Telemetry with OrangeRX

Hi Guys

Thanks for the interesting replies

It seems that Frsky, although potentially more costly, is the tried and tested route for telemetry

I guess I need to think a bit deeper into the complications of the Orange option

9Xtreme Telemetry with OrangeRX

Hi Guys I notice that HK have just launched the Orange DSMX receiver R620X - this provides telemetry at a reasonably low price. I have successfully used the 9X with Orange DSMX receivers and the Orange module. I guess I can use the Orange module in the 9Xtreme but my question is - is possible to use...

Re: Understanding er9x / Ersky9x

Hi Guys

I'm looking for some advice on interchangeability between Er9X and Ersky9X

I am currently using Er9X with a Smartieparts board in my old 9X and Ersky9X in my new 9xtreme

In the interest of consistency, I thought I might flash my old 9X with Ersky9X - would this work?

Re: OK, let's document this!

Hi Steven

I used the 9XPRO documents to get me through the set up steps

I think you could use this format as an outline and shorten/convert the text to suit the 9XT

Hi Mike

Yes - I get the '9Xtreme' message and r 00.3

Does this confirm I have no firmware issues ?
