Nope I have not switched mine out. The switching regulator mod is not necessary on the DX7. The DX7 runs at 130mA in DSM2 mode.

So soldering on a new connector for the new Lipo for some would make more sense than switching out a regulator or even doing the mod as I did.

MPI has connectors for the JR radios or you can cut the existing connector off the stock NiMh pack and make a jumper to the LiPo pack.

The LiPo is nice and light, I like this, makes the radio hang better after you do the strap mod on it also. With a LiPo I can get a full charge back into it in less than an hour, and having 2 its a quick swap if you get in a pinch and need to fly right away.
