Default DX7 Add a LED light & Relocate Neck Strap Mod

Hello, this is what i did i will try and show it best i can, (disclaimer) use at your own risk. I'm sure it will void your warranty
I want to apologize for my spelling now.

Radio Disassembly Step 1 - Step 11
Neck Strap Mod Step 12 - Step 14
LED Mod Step 15 - Step 18, Step 21 - Step 22
Radio Reassembly Step 19 - Step 20, Step 23 - Step 24

ok Tools Needed: Phillips Screw Driver, 5/64 Hex Wrench, Needle Nose Pliers, Side Cutters, Soldering Iron, Solder, 11/64" Drill Bit, 13/64" Drill Bit, Drill, Either a Dremel with a Cut off Disk or a Hacksaw.


Parts Needed: Chunk of small gauge Wire, short piece of shrink tube, 3.7 Volt LED (i used a Radio Shack 276-316 Blue LED, My Favorite Color) (or if your LED is 1.7 Volts you will also need a 47ohm resistor soldered inline on the Positive Led)


Step 1: Remove the battery. Then Remove the 6 Screws on the back of the Transmitter.


Step 2: Take the two half's of the transmitter apart. BE CAREFUL there is a wire connecting the two. now remove the screw holding the battery socket on the back half of the transmitter.

Then you'll have this


Step 3: Remove the 4 Screws Holding on the 2.4GHz Transmitter (I Chose to remove the ant wire, be very careful the plug is very small and kinda fragile, also takes patients to put back on)

Then move it out of the way


Step 4: Remove the 2 Small Black screws, and 1 Silver screw w/Washer from the Power Control Bord.

Then move it out of the way
