I am discussing it it is a stupid waste of time.
This entire hobby is a stupid waste of time AND money. Who cares? We're all here to have fun. If I had an old GY240 lying around that I didn't care about, I'd totally give it a whack.

This is NOT a waste of time because:

1: It's an opportunity to learn.
2: It might save you $140 (or potentially cost you $120)
3: It'd be fun just to try - which is the WHOLE POINT of ANY hobby.

imho, if it's something you're not interested in, then don't bother reading about it.

I hooked up a GY 611 to 8.4 volts to see if it would work without damaging it guess what it did not hurt it . 611 has a voltage cap so it just doesn't come on but when I hooked it up to 6 V it worked fine again.Some people look at money in different ways .I dont understand why people want to tell others how to spend their money.Also these same people will spend twice the money buying cheap lesser quality equipment to save a dollar.

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

This is cool.

I have a friend that was into the hobby for like 30 seconds before he crashed and killed a raptor 30. Its still in a box after 2 years. He has a 240 on it... if I ever get bored and decide to rebuild that piece of junk, I'm sure going to do this mod. If it works, its going to have a 401, if not... well, at least the rappy will be put out of its misery for good

Wasn't there a similar article on converting a 501 to a 601?
