Got my GT2 the day before yesterday and started tinkering away. They said the FrSky X4R would go into this thing with the header pins on but I sure couldn't figure out a way to do it. I ended up stripping the TX down, soldering the wires directly to the board and covering the board with shrink tubing with some cut-outs for the switch and LED's. This thing is really compact (I mean really compact!) and very clean looking. The 5mm frame should take quite a bit of abuse. Here's a few pics from the install.

In case you're wondering, BOB stands for "Blacked-Out-Beast"! The thing is a dead match for my Harley CVO Street Glide, it's blacked out as well. Cleaned up a few other things, put some double stick foam under the ESC's, pushed them forward a bit to get the wires away from some screws and ditched the tie-wraps for electric tape. My GP Session sits square in the camera mount. It came pre-flashed with BetaFlight 3.0.1 so all I had to do was bind it to my Taranis Plus. I'm going to go through the BetaFlight stuff and BLHeli a bit more thoroughly. Can't fly here now anyway, single digits and snow. Maybe when we head to TX in January.
