DX6i Backlight install using the $5 Turnigy 9X Kit
Installing an EL panel as backlight in DX6i Transmitter. I followed the excellent directions posted here - http //www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=339313 Backlight purchased from HobbyKing - http //www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh viewItem.asp?idProduct=17128 I did a few things wrong such as not marking the LCD position and not using 3m tape (didn't realize I didnt have any until I'd started), as such the screen is a little bit off, but I'll fix that when I get the right tape. The advertised current draw for the backlight is 60~90mA which is pretty minimal. I have not noticed a decrease in time between charges, but I always charge well before I get a low voltage alarm.
