I've been seeing more and more people customize their transmitters so it seemed to make sense to start another image thread.

So if you've pimp'd your transmitter please post your images.

Here's mine, 42mm Square Gunmetal with the Silver lip. . . .

Here's mine with square nuts, wheel and break disk and the official grip upgrade which I wasn't too pleased with. (It's very bright.)

oooh fancy,does the red grip fit the same(quality wise)
i just dropped mine down a loft hatch,it looked sooo broken but luckily the battery pack just fell out:(

Programmers
2008.04.19, 10:14 AM
Actually na, it doesn't. It's fit isn't as good as the original one but it's the official thing. So I'm thinking it'll wear in over time? More like hoping it will lol.

You lucky so'n'so! I didn't see much point in pre-ordering as I thought no one else would. Silly me. :o That looks cool! Can't wait to grab one myself.

Do you still use the pairing stick to setup a car with the module or is it that 'set up' button I can see?

kinda old airtronics / sanwa m8 tx (used to be a time when almost everybody had one - it's still a pretty good radio though)... newer model is the m11....

herm,

Just something you bolt on. You have to get an adapter
for the square wheels as they are held on by 5 small screws.
Unless airtronics changed the way they mounted their wheels
with the m11, I think the one sold now should work.

If you get the tagu wheel I suppose the stock screw would be fine.

=====

Looks familiar prog, lol.

I was planning on getting the red grip for mine,
but it does look abit funky and they were out of red
screws. Looks like I'll go a diff direction though.

Unfortunately, won't rid myself of the antenna until I
convert the f1...

May I ask from which shop did you get this combo of Tx and 2.4G Module? I m thinking of getting one. I m getting frustrated with my KT18,it drains batt quickly and giving me intermittent fwd throttle if the batt is not fresh :mad::mad:

http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g10/Teejay_Cynthia/IMG_0225.jpg

When I use to run Helios I can not manually adjust the steering radius just like the UR's. So, instead I made my steering wheel smaller by using JDM rubber bands a.k.a. worn down kyosho 20's :D. Now that I'm so use to the diameter, I'm stuck with it. Also makes up for quick transition ;).
