Is it possible to down grade a model III to a II by just changing the keypad to a model II and housing? I have a III FPP but never use the FPP and like the model II better. Would it confuse the controller or cause havoc?

Swapping the hardware should work just fine. But if you want it to be fully compatible with CPS options, the code plug should also be changed.

Changing the code plug requires Depot. We can't discuss that part here, but you get the idea.

You won't fry it. It's all good. The only buttons that will not work are the numerical ones.
