    Converting a Spektrum DX2.0 Radio to 3.0 for free!

    Hey,

    I came across a way to convert your dx2.0 radio to dx3.0 a while ago, and made a how to video showing how I did it

    It's pretty simple, only required a soldering iron and a magnifying glass unless you have super amazing eyes xD

    Hope it comes in handy for some of you out there Worked for me

    As always, I am in no way responsible for any damage you may cause during the procedure of modding your radio. thank you

    The video below demonstrates:

    Ive seen this and Im not impressed with Spektum for it. $30 for a $0 mod :l

    You'd think there'd be more of a difference

    I understand your argument, but there ARE pretty substantial differences between the two versions, it just doesn't take allot to upgrade for free. I'm all for it as it means I can experience more features for free, and spektrum didn't have to de-design the circuit boards inside to give a few more features. Makes sense really
