Fried Turnigy 9x

Postby Moos » Wed Oct 06, 2010 10:34 am

Before I contact HK, I would like to give it a try here.
I accidentally connected my 3s lipo the wrong way to my 9x, the tx has three pins and the batteryconnector has two holes, so there are two ways to connect..
Always did it right up till 30 mins ago.
I hit the on switch and poof it said with smoke..
I opened it up and saw the circuit board(the small one where the batteryconnector is) had some curled up copper linings.
Could I replace this board and where would i get it?
It is the version 1 9x, I use the Frsky module which I hope is still alive..

I was lucky enough to get a replacement PCB for one of the FlySky 9X radios I bought which had a faulty processor but I suspect that was at least in part due to "who" I am :-/

The reality is that you're probably better off just to buy another radio since the hassles of convincing the manufacturer to part with a board and the freight involved would be hardly worth the effort.

could you trace the burnt circuits and solder in a bridge wire to where the circuits end up (at a component)?

Buying a new one is an option but the v2 9x has the integrated module and I liked the v1 where you could choose..and use my frsky module.
I am going to try and solder a bridge-connection but I am not that expierenced with PCB`s..
thanks guys

i recieved my turnigy 9x v2 the other day and did the swap to Frsky. was not hard to do. instead of snipping the grey aerial wire i unsoldered it from the module to keep it long (just in case i decide to reuse it) and also removed the original floppy aerial from the transmitter which is hot glued in (the black plastic core, not the grey corrugate which is part of the Tx case). The original aerial can then be mounted externally. Ok so not as easy as the v1, but if there's a will...

Ok, if the soldering doesnt work I will order the v2 and modify that.
Question: if you look at the pcb, where would you solder the bridgeconnection, I am not sure..
I pointed out where I would think to connect, what do you think..

It is a shame you are so far away or I'd suggest you send it to me so I can take a look.

Unfortunately I suspect the postage would be worth more than the radio.

Yes but thanks Bruce, sorry for posting this thread in the wrong topic by the way.
I am looking for reasonably priced Tx`s besides the Turnigy but I cant find one that can take my Frsky module..
I could go for an Aurora 9...but the Turnigy is so cheap..
The thing I hate is the waiting..
