    Has anyone done the 7th chanel upgrade without buying the parts from Canada? If so how and what did you use??

    You don't like Canada?? LOL!!! Just buy the parts from Canada. It's so much easier and you don't have to be guessing. Or you can get the lever from Dronefly.com. Either way you can't miss. If not do a google search in YouTube, I'm sure someone has done something.

    LOL sorry nothing against Canada :D
    Just ordered the lever from Canada today. Just have to wait a while to get it thru. Hope UK customs don't get it first

    And don't want to be soldering inside the controller

    It's a pretty easy install. You will definitely like it.

    Be aware that the video shows the wrong pot. You want the linear taper pot, not the audio taper one. See the comments to the video on YouTube for details.

    I've just finished changing the 7th Chanel control from the shapeways level to the knob on the front of the transmitter . . .

    But can anyone spot just what else I have done to my Tx? And bonus points for why I've done it too!

    Gotcha !

    You moved up the pin for the neck laze :lol:

    And for the additional points: You moved it for better balancing your TX with LCD mounted on it. Weight factor :lol:
