vetterick turned me on to another easy DX6 /DX7 mod that extends battery life to about TWICE what it is currently available by switching out the linear voltage regulator to a digital regulator ..... http://www.dimensionengineering.com/...ektrum_mod.htm Dimension Engineering digital voltage regulator upgrade.

Tickidydoc ..... Have you completed this mod also? With the LiPo and this mod you would have to remove the Lipo for recharge half as much! Less heat in the case from the digital regulator!!!

Mine is ordered and should be here in a day or two. Where I work we usually use DC to DC convertors which handle a lot more current ..... and this mod makes a lot of sense for those who just want to keep the stock battery and get twice the time between charges.
