it was really easy, but you DO have to open the radio up, as long as you take your time & take note on the "locations" you remove the screws, you'll be fine...
you have to "open" up the opening where the antenna exits the body of the radio, but that is basically it....I also drilled a hole in the Spectrum Module so the wire exited the Module Case and entered the Radio through the opening that already existed by the "prongs" that connect to the module..My Buddy has the perfect "plug" to use to cover the "old" hole in the Module so you won't be able to tell the difference....
Please note when you remove the antenna wire from the circuit board of the Spektrum Module that you do NOT re-install it in the wrong location.. there are 2 locations on the circuit board, just don't get them mixed up. On my Pro Module, the correct location is J1 & NOT J2...
good luck, it's painless AS LONG AS YOU TAKE YOUR TIME!!!!!!!
