45 nickers or even 30 nickers for an RX is alot when you're used to spending a tenner on 8ch 35meg Corona's... especially as I've had nothing but faultless performance from them.
I cant be throwing anything off a coastal cliff with doubt in the back of my mind so I cancelled the order. I'll will wait for the Frsky hack to come back in stock or just wait a bit longer before I get into this 2.4 lark.A deflated me.....out
CT8F module has FCC AND CE markings, thats not the problem with these modules.What is that when binding they sometimes dont bind correctly and push all your servos to there end points .Another prob it has that if the link is lost it will not always re bind, I have alot of experience with these and I wouldnt even trust them in a foamy, others have had better luck than me, even my uncle has used them with no issue apart from the servo end point prob.If you bind the rx then turn your tx of for a few seconds , thats it , it wont rebind untill you have turned the rx off and back on.The best is the v2 dsss module for range.But like iv said in my expierience there not reliable, infact after loosing a wizard compact I through mine in the bin.Scott r
You could always buy it, and then not have the worry about what material to make model bags from?
Stevo- went Corona 2.4 a month or so ago with my JR 9XII.Never a glitch, really.I've found that, like Geoff N, the Tx needs to be a couple of feet away from the Rx to bind first time.I'vd done some bench trials when I've turned off my Tx to simulate loss of signal, turned it back on after 3-4 secs and got control back immediately.I'm well pleased with the system- ok no fail safe, but I never had that anyway.AS a retired guy with limited cash, I would not be jeopardising my hard won models.Ok I know people here rubbish cheap Chinese stuff, but similar to the Corona 35meg Rx you've used a lot of, their 2.4 meg, for me, performs faultlessly.PS mind you, my module was Corona built bespoke for a JR Tx. Dunno if I'd trust my soldering expertise in building the DIY version.
Hey RogCan I trust the Corona hack module after reading some of these report? I dunno.Was it that people had a bad install or had bad early versions? I dunno
Why not buy a secondhand 35Mhz tx that has a module port ? Loads of these going relatively cheaply now everyone is flogging their old tx's and buying 2.4 dedicated stuff.I suppose the SX is hard to beat though in it's price range granted....
Hi Patsy, there is nothing wrong with the Corona V2 hack module, the only issue is, can you solder the aerial coax to the pads on the motherboard successfully without damaging the board or the aerial wire? This needs to be done with care and precision. As is usually the case with this type of item..the problems are customer induced, not the tech !You also need to check that it is compatable with the PPM stream from the encoder ( positive or negative going) Phil-G and myself use these modules in our 2.4g single channel sets. Check out Phil-G's posts re the Frsky, he has done a lot of eval work on them if you want further info on them.Shaun
