Yay another transmitter mod, i have managed to pick up all the parts needed.
Reasons of this mod:
-Cheap Multi memory Transmitter that is 2.4
-Cheap System that uses cheap recievers.
-Has to have Digital display so u can see what you are adjusting.
-Has to feel very close to a high quality transmitter.
-Recievers have to be small and a min of 3 channels.
-3rd channel easily accesable
-Easy access to dual rates.

What I ended up getting.
1x XP3-SS w/ recievers(2.4 that comes with AE cheap RTR)
1x XP3D w/ recievers(FM 10model memory and LCD can be bought forums or ebay for about 30 bucks ish)

The Goal:
To merge these 2 systems.
So you end up with a XP3D-SS a 10 model memory 2.4 Radio system.
With receivers usable from AE that cost 19-40 bucks a pop.
***Small Down Side AE/Futaba electronics have an issue still running Long antennas***

Other options:
You can buy a XP3D and buy a chinese module and use Chinese Receivers. Reason i did not go this route is i cant get the recievers fast or cheap since i get hit by exp shipping costs.

Build Pics coming soon.

XP3-SS Dissambled, Pink Outline, You want the back case that module and the antenna of this transmitter.
The little Board with the Switches, just unscrew it and let it go with the left overs.


XP3D Dissambled, Pink Outline, is what you want to keep.

The XP3D has an FM/AM antenna output from the board. Its the white wire attached to an L piece.
As seen just cut it or desolder it from the board. Like seen below.
(You can leave it if you want but I need this peice to turn the other left overs into a Simple FM)

Reassemble the back of the XP3-SS onto the XP3D Front.
Make sure the holes from the XP3-SS Back Line up with the Front Pins of the XP3D


The pins from the XP3D Front.

Now Reassmble everything and You should now have a XP3D-SS.
Full Digital 2.4Ghz Transmitter with 10 Model Memory, Dual Rates, End points and ARC etc. etc. Pretty much all the basic bells and whistle you need.
Including a 3rd channel button on ur grip which you can dial % in also.

Your transmitter now uses these 2.4 recievers. Which can be bought new for $25-30 USD, used for even cheaper.
XP TRS401-SS 2.4GHz 4CH Receiver

The menu remains the same and manual will follow these instructions.
