Behind the foam on top are pockets for the tools and extra parts. You can see how those pockets looks like over at Harbor Freight’s site.
I pulled out a block of foam, keeping them intact. Then cut a 1/4 off the bottom and reinserted back into place. It makes a nice little recessed compartment for my 1s LiPo battery.
Can anyone guess what this little momentary switch is for?
If you guess that the switch is connected to the LED light strip at the top, you’d be correct. It gets toggled when the case is close, turning off the LED. We usually fly at the local park after my kids are put down for bed, so the light strip is great. I rigged up a 3S LiPo to power the LED light strip. The strip of LED was like $5 bucks at Hobby King, and has adhesive on one side. You cut it to the length you need. Then I used a 3S 2200mAh LiPo to power the LED because that’s what I had handy. You can probably go with something less. However, I intend on putting in a charger that will pull power from the same LiPo in the future. So that 2200mAh LiPo should work out pretty well.
My Turnigy 9x is modded for DSM2, yes. A switch toggle between DSM2 and whatever module I happen to stick in the rear. In my case, I have the FlySky module in there…which is the protocol the v911, v929, 9958 etc uses. That’s how I am able to fly all the DSM2 and FlySky stuff with one programmable radio. It works great!!!
I think you misunderstood. I modded the 9x to ADD DSM2 capabilities. The existing module in the back remains. In my case, the rear module is the one that comes with the 9x…which uses the FlySky protocol. The same protocol the 9958 uses.
So, I continue to fly my 9958, v911, v929 using the FlySky protocol. Then when I need to fly the Blade helis, I flip the switch I added and it enables the DSM2 module I install internally. So, one radio…two protocols…all my micro helis. :D
Not yet Alex. Devo with DeviationX is the easiest way right now. Th9xer created a module for the 9x that will be able to fly the X4 using DeviationX code based. The pcb design is being finalized but the beta code is already available.
