Help! Taranis Spektrum-module

#1
As in title, ....
I have an Orange-module for my Taranis X9D so that I can or should be able to use my spektrum-based receivers ...
but this Orange-module does not work. It is a known problem: the button on the module, needed to be used to switch from DSM to DSM2 .. DSMx-mode .. does nothing.

Can someone point me out to the/a correct module for my X9D, so that I can link to spektrum-receivers?
Thx

I have one of these OrangeRX modules as well, and even when it binds it is flakey. I have read that it can be flashed with the "Multi Protocol" firmware, and that it fixes all of the problems with the module. I ended up just getting a 4 in 1 multi module so that my radio will bind with just about everything.

Here's a link to the thread on OpenRC forums: http://openrcforums.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8753

Does the 4in1 work well with the horizon hobby BNF models?

If its anything like the 4in1 module I have, when you set your radio to external tx or change any of the settings, try backing out of the model and then going back in.... Like select a different model, then go back to the one you were just in.

For some reason my module will not bind or work until I've done that. Almost threw it in the garbage until I figured that out. Not sure if anyone else's modules work like that or if mine is messed up, but it's worth trying...

best bet is to build a spectrum hack module if you want to fly BNF spectrum planes. They are pretty simple to build. I've done a few. It uses a true spectrum DSMX module from a Dx4, Dx5, or Dx6 transmitter. I switched to this from a orange rx module once I started buying the expensive BNF planes. So far I've had no issues. It also allows you to bind from the radio in the menus just like a frsky receiver and also numbers the models so you can't accidently use the wrong model on the radio with the wrong plane.

I am also using the 4-in-1 module (iRangeX IRX4 Plus 2.4G CC2500 NRF24L01 A7105 CYRF6936 4 IN 1 Multiprotocol STM32 TX Module With Case) but do not have, or should say have not had this issue. I did however flash it (https://github.com/pascallanger/DIY-Multiprotocol-TX-Module/blob/master/docs/Compiling_STM32.md). I may just build a spectrum DIY module....just because :)

I've flashed mine as well. Not sure what the issue is, but it's a minor thing so I just live with it.
