iRangeX IRX4 4 IN 1 Multi-protocol module Review
For those of us not familiar with this magic black box yet, you won’t wanna miss this review. If you are like me, you have tons of cheap quads or maybe just never bothered much because of those childish transmitters… whatever the reason is, a 4 in 1 module makes shit cool again.
What exactly will it do?
The IRX4 binds to pretty much anything that you don’t already have a nice transmitter for. TinyWhoops and all DSM2-DSMX, that Walkera collecting dust in the closet, or the eachine e010 you gave the kids… take’em all back because no matter what WLToys contraption you are trying to fly may actually be some fun now.
What do I need to use this thing?
First you need a transmitter with Jr. port and then the OpenTx firmware. Sounds like a pain, but it’s actually pretty easy, I found a few good step-by-step video’s (links below) that walked me through it. I’m using the new Frsky Taranis QX7 but any of the Frsky Transmitters, the Flysky TH9X, Turnigy clone, Futaba’s with a Jr. bay all will work.
How well does it work then?
So far it performs awesome… pops right in and fits snug, setup is a few clicks for whatever protocol you want and it actually binds and stays bound. Distance seemed like the quality of your quadcopter mattered most, everything that I tried was in range further than the Vtx or battery was gonna take it so I had no worries. All in all, this is a definite score and will be an essential part of my gear now. I know the QX7 is ugly enough (mine is orange too) but who cares about that, just get one before they are never in stock again.
