Converting the controller to a pistol grip type.

I used a style of transmitter that's common in most rc cars, I cut the handle off and simply glued it to the RFX battery cover. I did this because I am used to pistol grip controllers. The RFX controller runs fine off of 3.7 lipo but if you want to use AA's just make sure you only glue the handle to the battery cover!

Thanks! what sort of glue did you use? I've just cracked my real car windscreen using an epoxy glue to restick the mirror :roll: so I don't want a melt down on my controller.

I used Tarzan's Grip General Purpose Glue. It dries clear and retains a small amount flexibility. It takes about 12 hours before it reaches maximum strength but its thick and easy to use!

Hey chris I have checked the packaging and the glue is made in Australia, if you can't find it overseas then try Tamiya ABS glue, it's made for most plastics and ABS plastic is common in R/C cars.
