I read here that they've included the original firmware authors' name in the user manual, muradshak you may be able to confirm:

girish, the package din't include a manual.It came with a quick start guide and they have asked us to download the manual from their site under the files tab of the product window.They simply copy pasted the entire er9x manual,which they should be ashamed of.Secondly, they found time to remove the original authors.And when the open source community responded they came up with a lame excuse saying they were in a hurry when they tried to release the product on Christmas eve.Following the response, they included some names in their version 2 manual which i haven't currently checked.

Yea so true, they even left sentences like "bear with me..." and screenshots showing GOOFI as the name. If they'd have credited the authors I'm sure HK would have taken a bigger credit up its sleeve; and yea if those pots were replaced with hall effect sensors, this thing would be phenomenal....It anyways is at the moment Wink

I flew my sky surfer with the 9XR transmitter today. As I am used to heavy radios this felt light. i used the frsky module in the back. No problems as of now. Sticks are better than 9X. I need to adjust the indent but overall I would say guys go ahead.
cheers

Anirudh,we both are in the same boat..Even iam planning to do the same..I wouldnt be going too far with my gear though..Iam gonna take my baby steps..I think you should look at the cheaper and legal(not in the whole sense)alternative to UHF by using a 2.4gh signal booster with the frsky module which will give you a range of 10+km by www.bevrc.com

That's great to know that someone else had also planned about something similar.... But I guess I'm gonna go with a tc which has a range of atleast 2km something like the spektrum dx8 I know it's expensive but I have an open ended budget when it comes to radio equipment cause that's what is primarily holding you're plane up in the sky and giving you the capacity to control..... I hope that there are no customs issues for bringing the dx8 to India...... Thanks

Frsky fitted without any issues. Just plug the module and bind the receiver and do the range test before the flight to make sure the installation is ok.

Anirudh - Iam flying a sky surfer.
The frsky module has been reported to have a range of 1.5+km LOS. It also features failsafe for all the channels.I also ordered a 5dBi antenna which is said to double the range. With this setup i can easily get a 2.5km without a hitch,may go further. I have a really tight budget hence iam looking for all the cheapest alternative to do FPV,and reliable ofcourse.
If budget is'nt a problem, get whatever you want. But i personally dont see any reason to get expensive tx's when you have a $50 tx with so much flexibility with the custom firmware and trainer ports and very reliable and tested module system like the frSky which will cost you 1/3 the price of the spektrum.You can spend that money on an arduipilot ar any similar autopilot systems to get your plane back.

Regarding fpv planes i would suggest you to get the skywalker. Tons of space inside for all your fpv gear  Thumbs Up

What your saying is also completely true.... But a range of 1 to 2km is not good enough for me I've decided to go with the futaba 7c.... And also failsafe is not a worry for me cause I'll be using the apm2.5 with the gos module.... I currently have a bixler 2 and love the design of the Skywalker x8 it just looks collosal in the sky but it's only bank and yank.... I tend to depend on the rudder a lot.... Cheers and happy flying....

The range i mentioned was of the stock frsky setup,use a signal booster and you get 10+km range..If its UHF,you have plenty of JR standard modules like rmilec,ezUHF,chainlink,dragonlink etc that is more than compatible with 9xr..Anyways,the choice is all yours Smiley..Let  me know after you have finished your setup..happy flying  Smiley

That is until they check your parcel. I was kinda apprehensive about bringing a tx,but i heard some guys got their tx's without any problem. My order reached on the 9th day after shipping from hong kong.So,on the whole transmitter's are restricted items unless they are type approved. Above all UHF's which i heard is using the frequency used by police and secret services is definetely a no.But you have a chance of bringing it in without the customs noticing it.Whats left is the signal booster,though the 2.4ghz frequency is license free using a 1W transmission output is illegal.

There are lots of factors that affect the range of a radio system. If you plan to fly a distance of 4km,you need a system that proclaims 8km just to be on the safe side.Besides that 2.4ghz systems are never ideal for fpv especially long range.Reason being that you'll have to fly LOS whereas lower frequency systems penetrate obstacles. What ever radio you choose when it comes to long range fpv you'll need to do some mods.You can use a windsurfer reflector for your futaba which directs all the signal waves to the direction you want,it does something like directional antennas.You have lots of option bud..I suggest you to do some mods if you are looking for some serious range

I'm actually not too worried about the radio part of it anymore.... I'm more worried about fpv equipment..... Do you know anyone who has a fatshark system here in India..... I mean the customs have a problem with anything related to rc it's just sad....

I have seen lots of threads where people mention they bring fpv stuffs from hobbyking and bevrc..Even i plan to get it from them..Its a matter of luck getting stuff's through customs..Its rare to find fpv gears in LHS..There is www.hobbysea.com who had some fpv equipments which went out of stock,not fat shark though..He said he can get me if i pay half the price and the rest after getting the item..Try contacting vineeth of hobbysea

Rob,there isnt currently any modules that support the internal antenna.Though hobbyking proclaimed its release,nothing is known as yet.All the modules in the market makes use of the built-in external antenna.For orange modules you can use the orange spectrum rx or any spectrum receivers i suppose
