Randomly browsing through DealExtreme I came across this. That looked like something I could use! I would just remove all the electronics that were already in and replace them with my own. It would even have mechanical trims in place. Sure it was a bit on the expensive side, but the whole idea of building my own transmitter to save money was long gone anyway.
After a couple of hours of tinkering, I had removed the digitizer and transmitter boards from my old transmitter and moved them in the new enclosure and everything was working well.
|Inside the transmitter it's a big mess of wires.|
|Front view of the transmitter. That antenna sure looks suspicious...|
|It is very awkward to carry this thing around. Flying with it is no problem though.|
