Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

JR 2610 TX & Getting to grips with 2.4ghz

I thought I';d post my conversion of my old JR2610 TX to 2.4ghz to save some money ....

I';ve been away from the hobby for a while but I';m gradually getting back into things and have recently built a quadcopter for myself.

A bit of background ... I know nothing about electricity (electrickery  :blink)  i.e. amps/watts/volts and PPM or SPCM is a mystery - BUT if someone explains something to me in words of one syllable or less I can normally understand it enough to have a go - especially with diagrams and pictures - That';s partly my sons autistic mind I am sure - I think I may be slightly autistic myself  :rolleyes:

SO - when I began re-kindling my interest I saw how cheap 2.4ghz can be if done by conversion and I set about researching what could be done with my existing JR2610 TX ... I had already discovered this site I began looking into conversion hack modules and found that for a mere £14 I could get one of these and give my JR2610 a new lease of life.

Fortunately the old 35MHX module inside the JR2610 comes out really easily a couple of screws and the whole circuit board coes out with the old fishing rod aerial with a bit of fettling/soldering and general ';making it have it'; hey presto I have 2.4ghz. It only required soldering 2 wires from the hack module to the wires I had to snip from the 35mhz board. I turned myself an aluminium ferrule where the old 35mhz aerial exited and made the new 2.4ghz aerial fit a treat - drilled a hole for the binding LED and fitted it with 2 small sets of nuts and bolts where I can see it on top - all perfect.

It works VERY well and I ripped all my 35mhz RXs out of my fleet and flogged them on Ebay - replacing them with these 2.4ghz alternatives. brilliant - good range - cheap - smaller aerials ... everyone';s a winner.

I';ve also added 2 IN4001 Diodes in the positive side of the wiring inside my TX so that I can use a Lipo battery pack in the TX - They are fitted in the TX wiring not in the battery circuit so that the battery can be charged normally outside the TX  - but when fitted the voltage is held down by the diodes so as not to fry the TX circuits - works a treat.  :smiley:

Decent TX upgraded to 2,4ghz and Lipo at minimal cost. :cool:

Excellent post XH558 im sure this will help others that find them selves in the same situation as your self when returning to the hobby to find out things have changed so much  :bravo:

A good job. Well done!
I did similar conversions to my JR X378 and 662 Tx';s last year. It has kept a couple of old but reliable units operational. I';m now waiting on a delivery from the next batch of Taranis transmitters :crossfingers:

I sold my 2.5g frsky jr3810adt for a steal last year . Now I need one  :banghead: anybody want to sell me a JR.?
