9z synthesizer incompatabilities
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just bought a Futaba 9z, nice radio, really heavy.
I was told that the synthesizer module does not work with reduced channel/single conversion receivers (i.e. foamies).
Sure enough I seem to have located the problem on day two.
My 9z refused to work with Realflight G2, connected through my Realflight interlink controller.
Raw data showed a scrambling and mixing of unrelated channels, 1&2 were mixed, 2&3, 3&4, and so on.
I checked, and cleared, all conditions and mixes in the 9z, no good.
Checked modulation (must be set to PPM), still no good.
Swapped synthesizer module to crystal module (should be no effect, as it is set to not transmit), this fixed it.
This problem with the synthesizer may also manifest itself if it's used in trainer mode. Don't know yet.
