The Turnigy 2650mAh Transmitter pack fits snuggly into any Futaba or Jr radio which uses a 4x4 AA cell battery configuration (see image). It includes discharge plugs for both JR, Spektrum plus other radios. It's built with a low C-rate Long Life LiCo Formular which isn't like a standard LiPo. It retains voltage for months on end without need for a storage charge so you can store your radio and fly once a month and not have to worry about discharging or recharging your pack.
With a capacity of 2650mAh this lipoly replacement for your old NiCD or NiMH will last four to five times longer. Probably the best advantage with a lipoly transmitter battery is that it will give a true voltage reading from start to finish which means you can say goodbye to the days where you thought your Transmitter was fully charged at home, only to find the voltage drop off rapidly when at the field.
To be a little more clear, do I need a mod to use this with the FlySky 2.4G 9CH FS-TH9X transmitter? The FS-TH9X has a JST 1x3 housing for the stock 12V DC (1.5AA x 8) battery pack.
I had to make a plug and cable mod, soldering a JST/BEC Connector and cable on the board of the very similar Turnigy 9x transmitter (with attention to correct polarity).
If I need to make a plug mod, what HobbyKing part number for the connector and cable should I order with this battery to fit the FS-TH9X transmitter?
Hi Arthur, Yes it does fit in the 9X. I use it in mine. The plugs on the battery are not exactly the same as the socket in the 9X, but there is one that works. You will just have to make sure that you have it plugged in the right way or there could be damage to the transmitter, so take not of the polarity on the battery holder plug. The alternative is that you can take the plug off the battery holder supplied with the 9X and switch it with the one on the battery.
2 thumbs up!
The battery came with the output polarity reversed. Damaged my Transmitter and now HobbyKing does not want to stand behind their product. If I could give this battery negative stars I would, along with their lack of support for a manufacturing defect. Hobby King is off my list of places to purchase.
