The latest thing coming out of WL Toys, the maker of the popular v911, is the v929. It’s a Blade MQX size clone if you are familiar with that quad. The v929 is a good, fun, stable quad and I am having a blast flying it.
My only issue with it is that they model the canopy after the Walkera Ladybird. However, thanks to the work of forum member Darsh, we have a pretty cool looking canopy.
Every now and then I see someone on the forum looking for the Turnigy 9x manual. So I compiled a few and am linking them here for your convenience.
First up is the Imax-9x. Which is the same radio as the Turnigy 9x. The manual is fully applicable and has nice soft colorations. Looks good. Click on the logo to download from Box.net:
The Copter X is also a pretty nicely put together manual. Fully applicable to the Turnigy 9x. Click on the Copter X logo to download from Box.net
The Eurgle is a no frills, black and white manual. Good because the PDF is only 6MB in size. It is available in two parts from Hobby King, but I combined both parts into one file to make it convenient for you guys. Click on it’s logo to download from Box.net.
Basically, you have a 4k7 (4700ohm) resistor soldered to the 3.3v and signal pad of the DSM2 module. (Pins 2 and 6)
Then you simply got three wires that needs to go to the appropriate place…
Pin 1 is your ground pin. That’s the Black wire and should be soldered to any ground point on the transmitter. Those BIG rectangular pads in the third pictures above, are a good, easy place to solder to.
Pin 2 is the power pin. It’s the Red wire in the photo and need to be connected a 3.3v power source. It can take power from a 3.3v regulator like the one I harvested from the donor transmitter, as seen in the third photo, or alternatively, a 3.3v uBec. Both the 3.3v regulator or uBec takes power from a suitable source on your transmitter. I have always use the pin (7th pin from the left) that feeds power to the rear module. I cut the trace and put a RX switch on it. Flip one way and power goes to the rear module. Flip the switch the other way and power goes to the DSM2 module.
Pin 6 is the signal pin. That’s the White wire in the photo above. It needs to be connected to your transmitter’s PPM output. A diode is soldered inline as per the schematic previously linked to.
I’ll make another post on how I use a common receiver switch, like this, this or this, to flip the power between the DSM2 module and the module connected to the rear of the radio.
