This is an RX aerial - not one for a transmitter. If however you are thinking of using it in the standard Turnigy 9X receiver, it is not a plug and fit replacement as the Turnigy aerial is soldered to the circuit board.
Yes, it is excellent replacement for all receivers FrSky of the range of 2,4 GHz.
Also, having removed the plug it is possible to apply to receivers the Corown, but it is necessary to solder very accurately - I so do when injured a mustache the receiver.
Yes and no...
The 9X's Rx antenna is soldered to the PCB, so this won't plug on. That said, there is nothing to stop you cutting off the connector and soldering it directly. The critical part, is the length of the stripped (white, in the pic) section, the overall length and termination is not critical.
Hope this helps.
No worries mate, thanks for the credit. It's not too hard, you just have to be gentle and work slowly. I've done this a couple of times for other things.
1. Using a new, very sharp blade, roll the cable on the bench and use a slight downward pressure to score the outer insulation. Too much pressure and you'll cut through the braided sheath.
2. Tease the sheath aside into two groups, one to each side and tin quickly, as to not damage the inner insulation.
3. Very carefully strip the inner core insulation, being careful not to nick the stranded conductor and tin.
Strip back more than you need and trim as you go to suit the pad locations on the Rx.
Strictly speaking, you do not need any paticular type or size of antenna. Provided it is designed for the frequency you wish to use, it should be fine.
Replacing your Tx antenna with something like this should be OK, if you wanted to keep it inside the radio case, for a more streamlined look, or whatever.
Obviously you would be working with a much reduced range, that may be more prone to interference, but for short range, or indoor flying, for under a dollar it might be worth a try.
Hope this helps.
Mate, I don't think so.
This has a "Hirose U.Fl" connector (check wiki for a good desc.) They are used for internal connections for tiny things like WiFi antenna connections inside notebooks, etc. They are NOT intended for normal use (plug/un-plug), and will soon fail.
The 9XR has a connector in the module bay that looks much larger, maybe MMCX. Not certain, I'll try to get a better look.
Hope this helps.
It's compatible with nearly all of the 2.4gHz receiver currently in the market. Have bought 4 of them tested them in them with the orange receeiver, frysky, Flysky, and even hobby King works great, instead of cutting the connected off, I installed a male connector on the receiver.
I bought one for exactly that purpose on my 6 channel orange receiver. The original antenna on the orange receiver does not have shielding so the antenna begins at the receiver. This antenna has a plug on the end that will need to be cut off and it is shielded. Only the last 3cm is the functioning part of the antenna. The antenna will need to be soldered on and the shield will need to be soldered to the earth. On my orange receiver the entire back of the circuit board is the earth so it was easy to s****e off a small amount of mask and solder the shield to it.
Mine seems to work well with good range but I am still going to be doing some more checking just to be sure before I fly with it.
Interestingly the Orange receivers have two antenna connections so I could attach a second one like $pektrum do if I want to.
I just bought the FrSky DIY module for my Turnigy 9x and 2 FrSky VD5M 2.4Ghz 5CH Micro Receivers (product ID=236000002). I need to know if anyone has HAS ACTUALLY USED this antenna on the FrSky VD5M model receiver. The antenna connection is covered with white material and I don't want to jimmy it up if it wouldn't work anyway. This antenna is longer than the original. Will it give me more range or will it just detune the receiver? Please don't speculate, be sure of your answer. Thanks.
Can someone provide a resource where I can find out which of the FrSky receiver models WILL benefit from the use of this antenna? If you put up a URL, be sure to substitute space characters for the periods in the address. Thanks. VJ
Almost all the full range ones already use this antenna, therefore none of them will benefit (This would just be a good replacement for damaged antennas). The D8R-II, V8FR-II and so on all use two of these antennas, look at the product pictures to see. The active part is the little bit at the end, notice there is no difference. Now, an antenna that may help with performance is the 40cm receiver antenna as the extra length could be used to get the antenna out of the model and away from interference from electronics or materials such as carbon fibre. If you are using dual antenna receivers also make sure that you place the antennas with a 90 degree angle between the two antennas so you can get good range in multiple axes.
Length is not important. It's the length of the exposed core section at the tip that's important. As long as the exposed section is the same length as your original it's goin to be fine. White stuff remove using acetone/silicone remover... Forgot which I used......it dissolves and wipes off. Yeap good luck!
Maybe ... you need to open the receiver. If the antenna has a little coaxial plug, then you can replace with this one.
This little coaxial plug are quite standard ... I can use this antenna over a GSM module, using the plug ... and it work perfectly ,-)
It is a replacement part. Buy it only if you had your original antenna damaged or if you like to have spares on hands. To replace it on D8R or V8FR, just open the case and unplug the old antenna applying a minimum force to it and plug the new one.
This antenna has micro coaxial plug so the only thing you need to do is open the case, unplug damaged antenna and plug the new one. But please be careful not to damage socket on Rx board - it's really small and needs delicate handling.
It replaces original antennas if, for example, they were damaged. You have to take Rx apart. Original antennas have to be pulled upwards to remove them from Rx. There is no locks, just pull vertically up. After tke new antennas and push them into place. Regards
I bought these as replacement antennas for my Multiplex RX, but I noticed that the exposed parts on these are 33mm whereas those on my Multiplex RX are 30mm. Weird. I don't understand why these are too long.
