Would it be possible to add the size of that thing in the specs. Having the size, peoples might try to fit them in others brand of transmitters.

The backlight measures 42 x 84mm and 2.5mm thick.

Thank you Schnozzer. I bought two, one blue and one green, and could fit them in my ZD remote. I prefer the green as the blue make it harder to read the display. For those of you how would like to retro light ZD remote, I have 3 of them (little differences in all) and the display on my new one has an opack silver backing so light doesn't come through. The backlight can be cut on 3 sides (extra info for others buyers) and you will need to cut one side to fit it in a ZD. This is how it look on a www.link

Every time that I actually assembled on of this with this light I try to make sure that nothing is in contact with the circuits. but perhaps more important is to use some kind of wax designed to make sure that no corrosion can start on the contacts.

Installed in 15 minutes, looks great. FYI, make sure the PCB clicks down all the way when re-installing to properly engage the buttons on the front of the tx.

Shipping was fast, and arrived safe and sound.
I am a noob, and this was my first plane I bought that needed assembly. Instructions are super easy to follow as was the assembly to perform.
The only trouble I had was attaching the wing to the fuselage. It was a tight fit and needed a bit of trimming. I have yet to maiden it due to high winds and rain in the area lately.

LCD Backlight Kit - Green is very nice for my Turnigy 9X but, but LED lights have been peeled away from the bar. We modeller :-)) superglue stick to the LED panel and now it's OK. Beware the remove the static-rubber is not easily torn. Excellent and useful product. I am here: http://sites.google.com/site/klubrclbb/dennik-2011

Turnigy 9x users only.
Some mods are a good idea and some not so good. In this case good if you count yourself as technically competent. This job is a little bit tricky and could easily go wrong. When you remove the pcb there several connectors to unplug which is not so difficult if you don't pull a wire off a connector but most tricky is the fine thin ribbon cable in the centre which can easily be torn and should not need to be disconnected if treated carefully. You will also find that the removal of the old double sided foam at the back of the pcb will not come clean away in one piece and if you use any tool other than your finger to remove it you could damage the minute pcb tracks. If you damage the ribbon cable or pcb tracks it's game over. Note also that the backlight display is a little too long and protrudes as do it's wires very close to the four up-down and left-right menu keys and could interfere with their operation.I did this mod on my old V1 Turnigy X9 first and decided not to do it on my new V2 X9 because of the above reasons. A newcomer to this hobby could easily end up trashing a perfectly good TX. Experienced modellers go ahead if you really want a backlit display.

I bought the green one as it was the only one in stock. I ordered a spare just in case. They arrived in about three weeks to Atlanta, GA in good condition. Installation was exactly as per the photos and Youtube video. This basically a JST connector pass through with a small circuit board attached encased in heat shrink. Two of the wires then flow through a surface mounted resistor to two micro leds which are glued to the end of a piece of acrylic. The LEDs seperated from the end of the acrylic but can be glued back easily. It lights up very bright but for some reason my Turnigy 9X will not turn off with the backlight installed. The screen remains illuminated and the LEDs continue to glow faintly with the TX switch off indicating that there is some current flowing through them and keeping the radio on. I inspected all of the solder joints and the PCB of attached to the JST pass through cable and found nothing that would allow the current to flow around the switch. I will have to do a bit more checking. I suspect a sloppy solder joint some where. 3 stars for not working right out of the box
