CX2 Transmitter DC Input Port

Is it possible to run the CX2 Transmitter from a DC power source rather than from batteries?

i have tried some rechargeable aa batteries and the result was horrible because of their low voltage output... using good high quality aa batteries (energizer or duracell etc.) they last a really long time so battery usage should not be too much of a problem...

what? I use rechargeable ni-mh in a lot of TX and have never had a problem. Alkalines drop under load to what the ni-mh read under the same load so how can that be a problem

Thanks for your replies.

I use the LP5DSM transmitter to run on a Heli-X simulator on my PC. I would like to plug in a DC adapter for when I practice. I tried to obtain a DC-adapter from Radio Shack with the correct tip polarity. However, the transmitter did not seem to work when the adapter was plugged into the DC port. Has anyone successfully used a LP5DSM transmitter with a DC-adapter?

these charging plugs are wired so that the batteries in the TX only recieve charge current from the TX charge plug with then TX power switch is in the OFF position.

AS mentionned above, the LP5DSM transmitter plug is ONLY for charging, when you turn it on, it will disable the plug. I have always use NiMH in my LP5DSM and never had a problem & usually last for ever....volt reading from 5.8 on fressh charge down to 4.8 & then I recharge because thats what the manufacturer suggest not going below 4.8 volts....
