Originally only available as a 'DIY' project, several manufacturers now produce the MULTI-module.
Modules are available to fit in the standard 'JR' style module bay found on most radio systems, or 'Lite' modules available for the smaller module bay of 'Lite' radios.
Some radios are available with internal MULTI-module boards. Internal modules work in exactly the same was as external modules.
All currently-available MULTI-Modules are based on an STM32 micro-processor.
Examples of currently available MULTI-Modules:
Vantac MPM Lite, URUAV TMX5, and URUAV TMX5 Lite modules are not supported by the MULTI-Module project. These modules have been found to be be using the incorrect MCU (processor), which does not have the correct amount of flash memory.
If you have one of these modules you should contact the vendor or manufacturer for support and firmware updates.

iRangeX IRX4 Plus MULTI-Module
As well as the different JR and Lite modules, there are other differences in different manufacturer's MULTI-modules:
- Most modules have two LEDs, some have none
- Some modules have a 16-position selector dial and a button, some do not
- Most modules have a USB port, some do not
When purchasing a MULTI-Module, one with LEDs and a USB port is recommended for ease of troubleshooting and updating.
Radios with internal MULTI-Modules include:
- Jumper T12 Pro Hall
- Jumper T16 Pro / Pro Hall / Pro Hall V2
- Jumper T18
- RadioMaster TX12
- RadioMaster TX12 MKII (CC2500 Version)
- RadioMaster TX16S
- RadioMaster TX16S SE
- RasioMaster TX16S MKII (4-in-1 Version)
- RadioMaster Zorro (4-in-1 or CC2500 Version)
Jumper T16 Internal MULTI-Module
Some radios have a limited internal module which only includes the CC2500 RF component, limiting them to the protocols which are implemented on this module.
To be able to use the full set of 100+ protocols, choose a radio with 4-in1 module rather than the CC2500 version.
