APX8000 model 3 to 1.5

Postby asmitty110 » Tue Feb 14, 2017 1:02 pm

Looking to convert my model 3 to model 1.5 so i can get rid of the bulky holster. What is needed for this? Is it just a simple housing swap with a new 1.5 chassis and housing?

thanks

just FYI for anybody considering this all you do need is in fact the rear 1.5 chassis and a new housing. Radio will power up and act as normal without the need for any other modifications.

Just for anybody who is wondering..i have completed this conversion. This is very simple to do and only requires a model 1.5 chassis and 1.5 housing. Nothing internal or software end needs to change.

usually people want to go the other way which is harder!
