Hi all, I ordered a 9C the other day. Can I use the Campac (aftermarket) from my Super 8 in the 9C ? :?:

Thanks,

John Wells

The Campac module is the same, but the programs won't transfer from the 8U to the 9C...you'll have to start from scratch on your set-ups.

I think they're all fitted with the frequency module, but not the campac board? I've got a campac that I bought in Toledo a couple of years ago that's in my 8UAF. It has something like 40 model memories and I'm hoping to be able to use it in the 9C.

I saw an online computer download somewhere that supposedly, will convert your campac info from the 8UAF to data that the 9C can read so you don't have to program much. Does that sound right? Maybe I didn't understand it correctly.

I haven't seen that program, John, but if it does that there will be lots of happy Campac'ers :D

I have seen it work but you have to buy or build the reader that you hook up to your pc and then the program converts the info. If I remember correctly it plugs into serial port on pc. I'd like to have one since I switch between my 8U and my 9C from time to time. I want one of the bigger memory pacs so I can have all planes in both txs.

I sent them an e-mail the other day but haven't heard from them yet. I need two, one for each tx and I want to get the pc reader if they have them. That's the reason for the e-mail, to find out if they have the new ToolPac.

Gordo was right, mine came with the campac module, but I changed it out with a higher capacity module that I bought from Don Edberg that had been in my super8. I went ahead and programmed my models into it (WHEW!) I set the reversing and end points, then most of the numbers (expo, d/r, mix percentages, etc.) were basically the same, so it wasn't as bad as starting from scratch. I noted the numbers from the Super8 and entered them into the 9C. I had nine models to program, not near what some guys have though.

I thought the new screen was easier and quicker to follow. Copying from one memory to another was easier too. The one thing I don't like, and it's minor, is that the neckstrap hooks on up higher on the face plate, which causes the transmitter not to balance as well when suspended from the strap, but I'll sure be able to live with it :) .
