Ever wished your Turnigy 9X transimitter had a backlit LCD? Wish no more! the Turnigy 9X LCD backlight kit is here! Other solutions require soldering or use a noisy inverter, voiding CE and warranty. However the Turnigy LCD Backlight Kit is LED driven and is a snap to install!
No soldering is required, you can do this simple upgrade yourself. If you can use a screw driver you can install this backlight!
Specs: Input Voltage: 8v - 13v Current Draw: 60~90mA Color: Blue
They are talking about the thick foam pad in the transmitter, a real pain to get off when I did mine. You replace it with the included thinner foam backing. I do not recall if it maters which side faces the LCD screen, but I do not think it dose. However they show red wire to the top and black wire to the bottom of the transmitter.
Sorry tractor, that is not correct. As I said in my last post, at about 1:36 (to 1:45) in the video, the presenter is talking about peeling something off and it is NOT THE FOAM BACKING. He had already talked about peeling off the foam backing at about 1:20 to 1:22.
My bad. I just looked at my order history I ordered this 12-23 2011, Wow. I looked at the video and it seems you are right, also while they hold the glass flat, but when they pick it back up and you view the glass from the side it looks as if the paper has been removed from the side they had down. Again, apologies. On the plus side mine still works.
Yeah!!! Now my 9X has a display backlight!! *LOVE*

Ordered one :) Thanks Hobbyking!!! But I think it'll be better to make it white color instead blue. Readability on a white background much better. Maybe you will make a better and faster LCD for replace for our Turnigy 9x, because original is so sllloooowwww...
Got my backlight and installed, it quite bright and not hard to install in to the TX. Carefull with wrong side when you install because the other side is not really bright. One more thing if you want to turn the light of when flying, mod a toggle switch is the best way.
Nice day you all :D
