I was recently “reinforcing” the waterproofing on my Maytech V2 remote as I have read about a few failures and weak points in the potting from the factory. Mostly following @Flightjunkie 's post about using epoxy or conformal coating to cover some of the connectors and double up the coating on the screen. Well I put too thick of a layer of epoxy on the back of the screen (my fault) and when I tried to put the screen back in the housing it bent and cracked.
The remote still functions just fine but as you can see from the photos, the screen is pretty much useless now. Its even worse in the daylight and you can barely read anything at all. Im pretty bummed as having battery voltage and RPM feedback was one of the main reasons I purchased this remote in the first place.
I contacted Maytech about purchasing a replacement screen from them (understanding that my warranty would be voided) but they will not sell me one and rather offered to just sell me a new remote altogether.
Does anyone know if this is an off the shelf screen that I could purchase from alibaba or something and then just resolder and recoat in conformal coating? I hate that I broke this thing and would hate to replace the whole thing and just waste it considering I have only really used it one time. It makes me sick!
