I'm fairly certain you'll need to modify it... I have a Devo6s, and the internal "antenna" is basically the same as the antenna in the Taranis (a shielded wire with its and - soldered to the board). There's a well documented antenna mod for the Taranis, the same concepts/practice should be applicable to your Devo10. I haven't heard of anyone replacing the Devo10 antenna, but if you're not daunted by some delicate soldering, it should be possible.
I did not know that about the Devo10. An adapter would be the easiest way. If you don't want that (sticks out too far or whatever reason), you could swap the stock pigtail for one that terminates in whatever you like. rp-sma to ipx.ufl pigtails are super cheap on e_b_a_y or from b_a_n_g_g_o_o_d.
Haynboy8.......something for you to consider before using any adapters, each adapter will reduce 1db, so two connectors will bring the antenna down to 3db
IMHO, Whyyy's suggestion to change out the connectors is a better work around
There's no reason why it wouldn't, it's simply an antenna. As you say it would just be a matter of morning the 9x. I would just go ahead and buy the whole frsky module, it's way better than the stock 9x module, and then you won't need to modify anything.
I dont have a tranais , but look at the antenna here.
This one has a hole in the middle so its RP-sma . Check the antenna of the taranis
Does it have a pin or a hole in the middle ?
If it has a pin then this will fit
if it has a hole then u need a rp sma to sma connector
Gadgieboy, You'll need to do the Taranis antenna mod to your Tx so you can have a replaceable antenna. Then you'll be able to install this and get a even better range than before. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIUgA6byOxA
None short of hacking your Taranis. I wouldn't do it. What is wrong with your Taranis as it is, have you experienced a signal loss? If you are going that far out that you experience signal loss then perhaps you should consider a UHF module to plug into your Taranis because the Taranis range is pretty good as it is.
Well then I guess that you will be hacking your Taranis.. In the message below this one Whyyy gives some detail into what is required but there is no plug and play solution. If you don't have any experience with soldering and circuit boards I would not do it but would try to find someone that does. Because the radio does not have a SMA connector for the antenna you will need to replace the broken antenna with a SMA connector, just make sure that it is the correct gender.
You'll need to open the case and do a little surgery on the internal rf board to use this 5db antenna. It involves soldering an ipx/u.fl connector to the board, and using an ipx/u.fl pigtail terminating in a rp-sma bulkhead-type. This 5db antenna screws into the rp-sma. FOUR things you'll need: 1) ipx/u.fl pcb mount (cheap on ebay)* 2) ipx/u.fl to rp-sma pigtail (at least 6cm)* 3) the antenna* 4) the stones to do the surgery and risk your taranis.

I bought this antenna and tested in the FrSky diy module, under ‘Range Check’ mode, I found that using this antenna the range is shorter than the original (2db) antenna, the original (2db) antenna the range is approx. 130m while this antenna the range is approx. 100m, I don’t understand why this antenna is inferior then the original (2db) antenna?
It truly gives 3dB boost over original 2dB antenna - confirmed with RSSI feature of FrSky telemetry. Even though it is longer then stock antenna, still fits my Turnigy 9x styrofoam box, without removing antenna.
