Twin Stick radio mod.

Postby Bigdave » Sat Jul 25, 2009 4:10 pm

Let me first say that I don't suggest doing this mod and am in no way suggesting anyone do it as it will automatically void your warantee. :shock:
So don't do a stupid thing like me and try this. :twisted: :wink: :twisted:
That said I wanted to show you the almost finished twin throttle stick mod that I am doing to my Tracker-3 radio. 8)

I purchased the radio for one reason, well two :roll: it was cheap and I wanted a twin stick computer radio on 75MHZ.
I had modified two of my Multiplex Cockpit radios before to twin stick and missed having that feature but did not want to cut up one of my EVO's.
So far the mod has gone much easier than I had figured but it is not finished yet and there is no sure bet that I did not bonsi the radio. :cry:
I will let you know how it works out.
So as they say on Mythbusters
"Do not attempt to do this at home" :lol: BD.
