Opening JR 10X?

Just picked one of these up from a friend and wonder what's involved in getting the case open. Thinking of checking/replacing the backup battery and possibly a backlight kit.

On prior radios only a few screws and the back comes off, but this one looks to be quite a bit more involved.

Anyone successfully had one apart?

Work carefully and slowly.

One thing to be careful of is the two small snap roll switches at the top of the back case. Easily broken.

The four allen head screws in the antenna mount have to be removed.

Be sure to remove the screws behind the battery pack and on the bottom of the transmitter.

You can remove the two rubber pads on the rear of the case.

Be very careful if you go as deep as the touch screen and LCD. Their cables are fragile and there is no replacements according to JR.

It's a great TX.

I have had mine open to replace the module pins that were damaged by a defective Fly Dream module.

Not a job for the faint at heart but dueable
