Introduction: Turnigy 9X Ultimate Upgrade ! FrSky XJT & X8R Modules [Installation and Betaflight Configuration]
The Stock Turnigy 9X transmitter is a great, mostly affordable transmitter, but unfortunately, it has a range of only 500m approximately. Using the FrSky technology I am going to show you how to boost this range to 1.5 ~ 2.5 Km.
You will need:
Step 1: Step 1: Remove Stock Module
To remove the stock module you need to pinch the clips on the back of the transmitter first. Then unscrew the module and remove the PCB from it. You will see the antenna wire coming out of the PCB, you can unsolder it, or directly cut it.
You can then unscrew the antenna from the top of the transmitter and remove it completely.
Tip: Close the hole of the antenna to prevent dust from coming inside the transmitter.
Step 2: Step 2: Enlarge Pin Hole of XJT Module
If you try to directly plug the XJT module into your Turnigy 9X you will find that it doesn't find correctly. That's because the square hole of the pins is a little tight.
You will need to take apart the module, and enlarge the square hole so that it fits flush inside the module bay.
Step 3: Step 3: Assemble the Module
Now that you have enlarged the square hole of the pins, re-assemble the XJT module and plug it in your transmitter and you should be good to go now.
Step 4: Step 4: Installing the Receiver and the Betaflight Configuration
If you wish to know how to install the receiver and configure the transmitter in Betaflight you can watch the youtube video where I cover those topics in detail.
Step 5: Step 5: Last Crucial Step
If you made it so far, your transmitter should seem to be working fine, and you might be wondering what could be this last crucial step.
