DX6I rf module
I am converting all my 72Mhz RX's to 2.6Ghz. I have 2 DX6I TX's but the problem is I have 25 planes ready to fly with 72Mhz receivers.

My 72Mhz TX has a model memory of 99 models.

Now the question;)

Since I really dont want to spring for a DX8 (no $$$), I was thinking of removing the RF module from 1 of the DX6I's and installing it in my 72Mhz TX. All of the functions are done on the main CPU board and then the signal is sent to the RF module to transmit it.

I have done this with another 72Mhz using the FrSky 2.4Ghz TX module. It worked great and was thinking if I could do it with a FrSky TX module why not use the Spectrum TX module.

I have not opened up the DX6I TX to look at where the module is but if it is a module then removing and installing in my 72Mhz should be a snap.

Any ideas????

RE: DX6I rf module
If you are planning to mod a 72mhz to 2.4 you probably should find an actual module and adapt it to the 72.
The Rf section of the DX6i isnt what you would call a module.There is no button that forces it into low power mode for
preflight tests.Other reasons too.Its more than just hacking a module out and swapping.
There are probably a few other upgrade paths that would work out alot better in the long run.

Something like this might work!  (And keep you from cutting up the 6i !
