Nice one JR Dont think it will be that aerobatic if you leave the engine as a pusher but worth a try
do you think you could do a video on the 9x battery conversion I want to do the same but have
heard if you get it wrong it will just burn out on ya so it would be nice to watch someone who has
got it right....thanks if ya can.....keep flying

yeah i saw a vid where he pulled the back off and soldered something to something and pluged in a lipo and it was all good
then i saw another vid where some guy used a rihno 3 cell and said all u gotta do is cut the plug off the AA battery pack and solder it to ur lipo (but it was only this 1 special "Riho" brand battery)
well im a cheep ass so i grabbed one of my old lipo (2650 3cell i got from xheli), and cut the plug off the AA pack and soldered it onto an adaptor (so i can unplug that to charge it)
now i dunno wat it would do if i didnt have the back light in the TX (it may get hot or blow up hell it may even poop gold i dunno)
but yeah im a cheep ass and it works for me (and if it fails then its only like $60 for a new one)

I think it will fly but... how much wing did you cut off of it?
Also as Ak flyer said watch that Lipo... It's pretty banged up

I am trying to get a 9x from November :D
Do you know what battery would fit in the back of the Transmitter?

I got one of the 1C lipo packs made for the TX. I put a different plug on it, but no taking the back off and no fuss. works a treat. Any 3 cell will do the trick.
