Hardware Preparation

All transmitters except for Taranis Q X7 shipped with bottom S.Port pins

  • The external module bay’s +ve pin has the same voltage as the transmitter’s battery
    • Check that the device being flashed is rated for the transmitter’s battery voltage
    • If it is not then either change the battery or add a BEC/voltage converter in between the module bay’s and device’s power pins
  • Use a servo cable with the positive and negative wires swapped at one end
  • Plug the modified servo cable on to the external module bay pins with the signal wire on the pin in the corner
  • Plug the other end of the modified servo cable onto the S.Port pins of the device to be flashed

Taranis Q X7 shipped with bottom S.Port pins

  • Use a regular servo cable
  • Plug one end into the bottom S.Port
  • Plug the other end onto the S.Port pins of the device to be flashed

  • Will not work due to missing or incorrect circuit components
