I started this in another thread but I figured since I was going to do some modifications to it I'd just start a new thread. Just a quick recap I sold my Taranis Q X7 and my Eachines goggles on RC Groups and bought a used Taranis X9D for $125.00. It has a scratched screen so I ordered a new screen and a 6 position Pot and knob to install for the Pixhawk flight modes I intend to buy for a video platform down the road. I just realized how much more I like the feel of the X9D over the Q X7. I was thinking about changing the gimbals to the Hall sensor gimbals but after checking these out they are much smoother than the gimbals on the Q X7 so I'm going to leave them. I just upgraded it to Open TX 2.2.2 and installed the Amber sound pack, it all went pretty smooth. This is what I have on order from GetFPV.

This is the 6 position pot/Knob:

This is the new screen:

Here are a few pictures, I'll probably do either a video or pictures of the mods.

Hey Al, I know this is an older post, but how wsa the experience of selling on RC Groups? And where/what forum did you use to do it?

Hey Randy, I have bought and sold a few things through RC Groups and all went well. The user profiles show if they bought or sold anything and gives them a rating. You decide who pays the shipping. Here is the classified home, anything else you need let me know, good luck.
