I have a FrSKY QX7 digital telemetry radio system (radio transmitter) and on its' specification it says
Operating Voltage Range: 6~15V (2S, 3S Lips are acceptable)
Operating Current: 210mA maximum (both RF module and backlit are on)
The thing didn't ship with a battery and I'm just trying to use it for a drone simulator- so if this doesn't work, i have to wait for a battery to get here and that's not fun.
I have a 9v battery, cables, and the battery that will eventually plug into this has a 2 prong connector into the circuit board.
So if i take a 9 volt battery, add wires to it, connect those two wires to the two prongs right there... based on the above stated operating voltage range, will it... work without damaging the unit?
It's a temporary hack, I just don't know enough about electronics to determine how bad of an idea it is. Thoughts? Ideas? Other solutions? Resources that dumb people like me can understand?
