Maj,,,if you strol by, I have a brain teaser I would like to mod into the Taranis cheap, and not to intrusive way of using some old ****py fourchannel radio as a slave to control just pan and tilt functions for a camera man without getting in my way to fly the plane. Or am I really talking about a second receiver for just camera functions which is basically to much weight and money that direction. Also your idea to split the 9X radio apart as I had nothing to loose paid off in spades, thanks man you was right in that the micro switch was bad and some donor radios from previous builds I had done did have one that was compatable and is now working, but I would rather not do that again as it was very hard to get it to take solder. In the process though I bid an out ragously cheap bid on fleabay and won it for what I could buy one for from International ware house without shipping. Guy baught it last year and never used it. So now I will have an extra I am planning on hanging a Frsky XJT or a EZUHF 433 on it for a moduel and see what trouble I can get into with it. The weather has turned warm and I kicked the girls out for the three day weekend and its nothing but flying until I dont have batteries,,,,lol
For FPV it's possible to work pan and tilt with a "head tracker" but that's not 100% foolproof as that requires wires to be connected to the radio and your goggles. For FPV and videos, your other idea of using a separate tx/rx makes more sense. You fly with a) and use b) for pan/tilt. If you are going to do aerial surveys or inspection videos (which is what I intend to do..) using two sets of radios is the way to go. Weather here has cleared as well ... more flying in my calendar. Good Luck Newey!
Not aware of any frame for X Quad Tilt Rotor option in MWC unless somebody makes this code. However, you can use the regular copter code and use separate channels to control the tilt servos for forward flight ...
a) Make sure you install the Silabs driver. b) If using the USB port, make sure the jumper J1 is connected. c) Also try using a different USB cord. d) Try different USB ports e) If all fails, you can connect a USB Serial adapter (Silab or FTDI) to Serial 0 (beside the rx pins) connect Rx-Tx, Tx-Rx, 5v-5v, Grd-Grd. When connected to the computer, you might have to install the correct driver for the adaptor chip .. go to the manufacturers site to download the driver.
Great unit, with all the features you need for your MC. And the price is awsome, so normally, you cannot make a mistke on buying this unit.If you buy this features in europe, you will pay 3 times as much or more. For the HK price, you get at least the gps module ( sometimes ) but not incluiding the board, wich has a big and powerfull processor also. So another time, where HK makes our hobby affordable. This is what the MC-Flyers need to upgrade their machines.

Received the board today from HobbyKing .
After reading about all the broken Micro USB connectors on other FC like the Crius AIOP , I had a good look at the USB connector BEFORE connecting anything.
The micro USB connector is soldered to the board at the rear corners and also has 2 tabs half way down the sides.
Close inspection reveals that it does NOT have a lot of solder to hold it in place and YES it is likely to break off without some extra solder.
The side tabs do not appear to have been well soldered, my guess, surface mount automated soldering has not applied sufficient heat to get the solder flowing well around the tabs which are part of the larger metal connector shell, using a fine tipped soldering iron, care is required specially on the side near the pin headers, re soldered the metal tabs and also the rear corners of the connector, I don't think it will come off now.
Do keep in mind that is a very small connector and the cable can be used to apply sufficient leverage to rip it clean off the board, no amount of extra solder will prevent that, so be real careful not to apply sideways forces to the cable when plugged into the board.
The quality of the board, the soldering of all the other components, I can't fault it, all looks excellent.
Lots of information now in the files tab for the product at HobbyKing.
I connected the GPS to Serial 2, and the flashing LED
