LCD Screen Backlight Kit for SpekTrum DX6i DSMX Transmitter
Demo video of our backlight installed in a standard DX6i:
Our backlight kits have many advantages and are of much higher quality comparing to low cost traditional or DIY or LED backlight. This backlight kit is intended to help you see the transmitter screen in low-light condition. Great for night flying and also add unique custom looks to your TX.
We designed this kit with one thing in mind, low power consumption. The advantage is that the light can stay on as long as your transmitter is on without draining too much of your battery. You will hardly notice any difference in term of power loss, however if you are running stock NiMH pack of 1500mAh or lower, we highly recommend upgrading to the Sanyo Eneloop 2000mah batteries as those will last much longer.
Backlit screen is a huge advantage for those that like to fly at night or simply want to make your radio looks unique. The backlight also double as an alarm which let you know your radio is on, lots of people forgot to turn off their radio after flying resulting in blown fuses, puffed lipo pack due to overdischarge, and worse case the puffed lipo could start a fire destroying your expensive radio.
