 The Devo 7E is the best value for money transmitter that you can buy that DeviationTx supports. It shares the same smaller body as the Devo 6 but instead has a 128x64 pixel LCD screen similar to the Devo 10. The Devo 7E is the best value for money transmitter that you can buy that DeviationTx supports.

 It however only has 128k of flash memory, which is barely sufficient for DeviationTx. It is equipped with only two 2-way switches and a range limited RF module. There are proven modification though to overcome these limitations. It however only has 128k of flash memory, which is barely sufficient for DeviationTx.

 + 
 +== Disassembly == 
 +All modifications have to begin with disassembling the transmitter. Here's how to do it.

 == Extra RF Modules == == Extra RF Modules ==
 +You can install up to 3 extra RF modules in the Devo 7E, for a total of 4 modules including the stock RF module. Two quite easily and the third via soldering directly to a processor pin.
 +
 +Alternatively you can [[:​building_the_multi-module|build]] the [[modulelist:​multimod|MultiModule]] instead. With the MultiModule,​ you will not need to solder to the processor pin and still use all 4 modules.
 +
 +The process is very well documented in the wiki page "​[[:​rf_module_installation|RF Module Installation]]"​.

 +If you'd prefer not to fool around with soldering inside the stock RF module, or you damage the stock RF module, you can replace it with Walkera'​s full range module used in the Devo 6/8/10 transmitters. This requires removal of the stock RF module.

 == Arduino to PPMin for Extra Inputs == == Arduino to PPMin for Extra Inputs ==
 +The trainer port can be hijacked for an arduino to provide PPM signals from nearly any combination of switches and potentiometers. This modification effectively takes over the trainer port by mimicking a 2nd connected transmitter and injects PPM signal to the channels. Note that once you do this mod, you will not be able to connect another transmitter to the trainer port.
