Spektrum DX6i Gimbal Retrofit

Spektrum DX6i Gimbal Retrofit

I modified my Spektrum DX6i to use FrSky M8 hall sensor gimbals. The M8s fit perfectly in the place of the original Spektrum gimbals.

They are indeed M8 gimbals even though the box says M9. Not sure why they were in the wrong packaging.

I was able to simply snip the wiring from the old gimbals and match the signal, ground and power to the M8 gimbals.

Repainting

After removing most of the internal parts to change out the gimbals I decided to give the radio a new paint job. Not shown is the masking of the details and grips.
