Hello RSSD50, Unfortunately, the internal antenna cannot be used with this module unless you do some cutting, soldering and drilling. Also I heard that it gets ****py range. If you ONLY fly with this module, you can do an easy antenna relocation to the top of the Tx behind the big handle. This allows for putting your TX in a case or on the table without having to remove the antenna every time. Check it out on YTube under my channel XXXTechRC. Hope this helps!
Hi Hurley. It looks like the UMX planes use DSM2/DSMX, and that's exactly what this module is. So, yes! Double check your specific model, but if it says DSM2/DSMX, you're good to go! Hope this helps.
Hey Michael. I'm guessing you're in the US and you chose "International Registered" for shipping? If so, I had the same experience and it took just over 2 months to arrive. NEVER use that method of shipping. I've suggested that they don't even offer it as an option b/c customers are getting pist. Use Swiss Post for 1-2 bucks more and you'll get it in less than 2 weeks. Hope this helps!
Radiotech- I use this module on my Taranis. I do have one question.
How many channels can you run with this module, on the Taranis?
I think it's 8 channels, but i'm wondering if I could use an orange 9 channel and still use the 9th channel. And so on, and so on... for other DSMX/DSM2 receivers with more than 8 channels.
Aces all around. I have two that I am using in turnigy 9x radios. One is running er9x and the other is running open9x and they both work perfectly. Range tests are flawless. Works with every single dsm2/dsmx receiver I have tried so far. The case is quality plastic, the screws aren't soft metal, the antenna is nice and sturdy, the electronics/traces are all soldered very clean and nice. Highly recommend this one!
Recieved my today and it just drops into the turnigy 9x. Binding is same as spektrum and works floor less. I recommend this unit.

Having overcome the ch2 issue (somewhat), I test flown using the module.
Tx=Turnigy 9x flashed with Er9x.
4ch with Ailerons on Ch2
Frame length had to be changed to 18.5ms from the deafault 22.5ms for Ch2 to work normally. Otherwise, Ch2 is sluggish.
Rx=Orange 6ch DSM
- Orange plastic is of good quality with 4 machine screws securing the lid. - One drawback is the antenna position at the bottom-right (1) without a tx stand, the tx will be resting on the antenna (2) at 90deg upright, the antenna is directly behind the tx handle - this is in the antenna nearfield and will most certainly interfere with the antenna pattern.
- Inside the module, the antenna is attached to the pcb via a small coaxial plug and a short length of cable (read: able to move position of antenna if 1 wishes...).
- Pcb is held in place by carefully positioned standoffs built into the casing.
- I had problems locking the module into the module compartment on my 9x, only one of the clip clicks into place. I suspect this is due to the height of the connection pins. Nonetheless, i feel that the module is secure enough.
- I had no binding issues with the orange rx.
- I was also able to change the operation mode by following the little instruction sheet that came with the module.
- With the Frame length fix i read in a post by Gemini, all channels work well indoors
Hooked it on to my Futaba 8FG to enable PNP stuff. After some wiring and channel remapping it worked. Posted a video on youtube, watch ID CfdCuRmx0jc if link wont show up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfdCuRmx0jc

okay, i got this just a few days ago. ch2 aileron is glitch, and i would not fly with it. however, remapping aileron to ch5, and then ch 5 to alieron and it works just fine. but losing 1 ch is why im giving 'quality' as 3 stars. this is still a five star product in my opinion.
i have contact hobbyking warrenty desk and we shall see what happens. i still really want my aileron channel back!
