I wanted to change the firmware on the 9x then i got bored and wanted to add the frsky to make it a better radio.
So i have the fatshark googles but i also wanted to add a 7 in monitor to my rig.
But i wanted to use the same power as the battery so i snaked it thru the old antenna hole. you can see the power wire mesh cables in the pictures. but i wanted to more directed leads so i had to open up the monitor and add my own cables.
Then i wanted to have kinda a NASA looking tx so i took everything apart and made it white.
This is inside the monitor. just had to find the video in and power in.
monitor now mounted
I made my own plugs with some pins rows I found.
checking to make sure all wires are correct.
a couple of drops of hot glue so wires don’t pull out.
shaping hot glue.
add a nub to match the cable so I don’t forget which way to plug it in.
Soldered wires to board checked it 3 times. better safe than sorry!
Error is normal and reboot..good bye 9x!…HELLO ER9X!
OK Now I got bored with the radio so I decided to take everything apart and paint it.
I masked most of it any thing I miss can be remover with a q tip and some acetone.
I thought it would dry fast it drys to the touch in 1 hour but it take 7 days to get solid.
Weather is so nice I decide to put it back together after 3 days. I am painting another one fire engine red if I mess this one up.
Houston… we have a go! for monitor!
Everything is working ER9X looks good!
You can see where I snake the power from the radio battery out the antenna hole.
the monitor mount is from http://polakiumengineering.org
the yellow plug is the monitor power that connects to the tx power.
I dremeled the pin mount shorter to fit my fr-sky pack and removed the AA battery pack and added a lipo battery.
battery connected with new plug and shrink tubing.
Battery fits like a glove!
Now I added a Sun visor.
This should work!
Added my logo and mug shot to the radio to make really custom-made!
Hope you like my radio!
