Default 6channel 2.4 Pistol Radio conversion


Hey RC Fanatics,

Iam doing a bit of a poll here, out of many of the RC Forums out there, WHOis Converting/ Modifying their Radio's into 4 or 6 Ch Pistl grip Radio's ? ? ?

Iam Converting my Spektrum DX6i into a 6 ch Pistol grip radio. Among other RC's I run 2 Rock crawlers and as you may know they Run DIG setups, 4 Wheel steer, winches and such.
Ihad the idea of converting my Spektrum DX6 radio into a Pistol grip a year ago and some guy in Brittan ran with it and completed it. A few other people are/have converted there TQ2 TQ3's into 5/6ch systems using various other systems.

ANybody here doing this ? ??


Here is mine so far, hve not installed Switches or electonics just yet, but it's planned out except for all the wiring.

If you lost the programming screen, what is the purpose of the rolling selector? Or is the programming screen somewhere on the radio?
When did you go from black plastic case, to gray plastic case? Did you melt the DX6 case to make it into a pistol grip?
What is the purpose of the LED over the rolling selector?

Cool photoshop work.

I bought a KO Propo mars EX1 fm Pistol on Ebay for $40. and gutted it out. Used the trim buttons as DX6i trim buttons, fabricated a housing for the PCB and LCD bopard on the back of the KO raio.
The LED on the front is to remind me it is Powered ON.
