All you need is the module out the back and put into another radio ... Jumper .. FrSky ... 9xr ... 9xrPro .... etc.

Module doesn't care about protocol ... I have er9x working with my one of my 9xr's on FlySky module !!


So are all modules interchangeable ?

With most - yes because they follow the JR Design format.

The only item you have to be careful about is older JR radios such as my JR Propo from the 1980's that started this module system ... is that the older JR has a voltage on a pin that is not compatible with later modules.

But it is only very late model radios with altered FW that will not take a regular module FlySky / FrSky / Orange etc. Even this PL18 will take a FrSky DJt ... V8JT module once they make the adaptor available.

Here's the original JR module that started it all in my JR Propo :

[DSCF0704]

Yes I still have the box etc.

[DSCF0707]

I have actually used a FrSky module in this just to see if it would do it ... and yes it did. But I did not fly with it as my ex Wife when I left UK years ago ... left this radio and my Futaba 6m in the shed where they got wet and corrosion affected internals.

That is a super cool radio you have there 🙂 
allso fun to see how radio's in the years after it still came in packages with slots for servo's, but not have them actually come with those servo's 🙂 

allso:

That JR came with Tx + 35Mhz Module, Rx + 35Mhz Module, Tx and Rx xtals (in those days you could only use JR xtals as they had a slightly different intermediate freq corrector than other brands), 4 servos of user choice (yes - you could choose servos to have in the set at no extra charge), charger, DSC cable, Tx and Rx battery packs.

As of a couple weeks ago I now own a Jumper T16 Pro.  Price through Amazon was only $253.00 CA delivered. Other then me racking my brains learning new lingo (programming)  I am very impressed with it  and it is now fully supported as of  a day ago.

Now the fun begins!
Looking at the specs and reviews I think it'll be a decent radio for you Jeff.  Lots of stuff out there to learn the programming side of things too. In theory you should be able to do most of the things I do on the Taranis, but just watch the videos and read the bits and you'll get it in no time at all 😃
Multi module is a help so you can run a few different protocols if you wanted to.  Not sure if they've ironed out the problems working with FrSky yet but that protocol seems to be the most stable amongst the multi module options.  I worked with Pascal to develop the FlySky AFHDS2A protocol but it was still sometimes a bit buggy which is why I switched over to FrSky in the end 🙂
Whoever said nothing is impossible had obviously never tried slamming a revolving door...

I think Jumper upset a few people a bit like Hobby king did when using Opensource FW and locking it down.

FrSky even though my fav module system - is a bit cheeky I think having used OpenTX for their gear to then have a go at Jumper for doing similar.

I would seriously consider Jumper - but only when I can reflash with ersky9x .... which today is not possible.... Jumper have 'firewalled' that.

@Sterling101  @solentlife  Both of you two are way ahead of me when it comes to all this programming crapp 😃 😃   For me now to do multiple and complex mixes (brainwracking) is somewhat easy now, my FlySky TH9X to me is a great tx for the price and it does lots but some easy common stuff you think should be in there isn't. I think it cost me under $100.00 and it came with one or two rx's . I really like the idea of the multi protocol and it was a big selling feature for me when buying a new tx because I didn't want to just possibly throw my dozen or so rx's away. Now also if there is suddenly a great deal on a different rx I don't have to care what protocol it has and I will be able to bind with it.  Also down the road if I pick up some telemetry sensors I have that option. Plus I liked the price.

Wildthing ... fully understood and I agree that the big selling point is the Multi capability.

I too am looking at it.

Halloa people 🙂

if you have been having an eye on that new PL18 radio from Flysky you problable noticed there are some things to be desired in the receiver-availability for it..
Which is why I did me a DIY project to see if I could make the SMALL iBus / sBus FTr16S receiver work for (smmaller) airplanes..

Here are my findings / what I did....

All kinds of planes, multi rotors, heli's, cars & boats..

Bit of a a how to / info on about model-matching with the AFHDS3 system / PL18 this time..
Hope this is informative...
