Default Which Lipo Fits In My Spektrum DX6 ?

Hello,

I would like to replace the sealed NiCad Battery Pack (8xAA) in my Spektrum DX6 transmitter with a LIPO. It appears none of my 3S Lipos (1600mah, 1800mah, 2200mah) will fit in the battery compartment of the DX6 due to their width. I have an assortment of HC Flightmax, Eflite and Sky lipos, and all appear to be abit too wide.

The existing sealed NiCad pack is 100mmx28mmx28mm leaving very little, if any room to spare in the radio battery bay. If you have purchased a Lipo that you know for a fact DOES fit in the battery bay, can you please post the brand/size and source, it would be very helpful.

Thanks,
Ken

Check this one out and check the deminsions for the battery and what you have for space in you TX it fits in the DX7 might fit yours. I have one in my Futaba 7c and love not having to charge up all the time. Read the product review from people glanced quick at them that is why I know it fits the DX7.

Thank you for the link. Couldnt find any dimensions for that specific lipo on their website. Well.... hopefully someone somewhere has done it to an actual DX6.

thanks again,
Ken

This is right from the battery site and what it fits.

Compatible with Jr/Spektrum/Futaba radio transmitter.

Highly recommended for Spektrum DX5, DX6, DX7, Airtronics RDS 8000, Futaba 7C and more!
Serious Power for Serious Hobbyists! The Blue LiPo batteries have been in the RC industry for a while now and is very well-known. Don't believe us? You can google it or youtube it and see for yourself.

Of course the DX5 is 4 dry or NiMh cells, so it won't work in that radio. You kinda get what you get with them.

Agreed!! Great example too. I have dealt with them before. Unless I get accurate dimensions or hear that someone else had success with that "specific" Lipo in a DX6 I cant help but be a abit leary.

thanks,
Ken

Here are the dimension I should of thought to just measure the one I have.
Length is 10mm width is 3mm and the thickness is 2.5mm. Hope this helps you out.

Im gonna take that as 100mm x 30mm x 25 mm. And, that may very well work ! Thank you John. That was alot easier than trying to get the correct info. from their sales dept.

Thank you sir,
Ken
