FRSKY and Multiplex
First - Hi all, just signed up today.
I’m a long time RC flyer ~30 years and have been involved with model aircraft since I was a kid 1950s (giving my age away).
I have a Multiplex Royal Evo 9ch which originally was on 36 Mhz. Then foncerted it to a Hitec 2.4 Ghz, then sent it into MPX and it was upgraded to their 2.4Ghz system. Awesome system but receivers are expensive. I sold all my aircraft about 2015 but am not getting backinto the hobby driven 1) by 2 grandsons 2) 3d printing of aircraft.
Would like to convert my MPX to FRSKY, but not sure where to start. Any help would be appreciated. Tx & RX have moved along a heap since 2015.
...just to add I did the original Hitec 2.4 conversion myself (based on what others had done on the www.) My main issue is which TX module to use (and if there are any available for a DIY conversion). Dab hand with soldering and mucking about with small electronics.
You would be much better off selling the Mpx Tx, and buying a FrSky one. If you have any Mpx 2.4 receivers they sell well, too. Go over to FrSky, best advice I can give.
(I went from the Mpx MC4000 to FrSky Taranis and Open tx, back in 2013)
If you want to do the conversion you can use this: https://www.t9hobbysport.com/frsky-xht-accst-d8-diy-module
then you can use any V8 receiver: https://www.t9hobbysport.com/rc-gear/frsky-v8-receivers
Or even the XR but you wont be able to exploit the telemetry side: https://www.t9hobbysport.com/rc-gear/frsky-xr-receivers
