    Hi there!

    First-time poster here. Second-month flier.

    I searched the forums for my query, but couldn't find a corresponding thread. Forgive me if I've overlooked any.

    I have an out-of-the-box, unaltered Walkera F210 3D with a 2.1 power board. It came with a DEVO 7 (not 7E) transmitter; it remains as-is.

    My question's this: What do I need to do in order to allow my F210 3D to communicate with a Taranis X9D+ (currently running OpenTX v2.1.6)? As with the other transmitter, I've made no changes to its hardware or software.

    I'm aware of Walkera's External Receiver Converter (F210 3D-Z-09) but don't know what other parts (&/or software updates) are needed to use it with the Taranis.

    If this is possible at all, any detailed instructions in onboarding the External Receiver — or any other preferably tidier methods — will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Cheers,
    James

    You need a suitable PPM based FrSky RX and the external RX connector.

    This FrSky D4R-II is marked as CPPM (not PPM). I don't know if those types are synonymous.

    Is it suitable for use with the Walkera External RX Converter and the Taranis X9D+?

    That should be fine.

    Cheers
