Re: Sky9x Rotaty Encoder Option

Just fitted my encoder. Found the left and down arrows didn't work :o I found you need to bridge the lower contacts on each of the 4 directional switches. Maybe not necessary to bridge all four perhaps, but I did anyway. They are not bridged on the adaptor pcb. This applies to the ersky board, anyw...

It seems there's interest in 5 so far. I'd like to get to 10 before I start cutting. Maybe I should run the whole sheet and send the rest to SkyNorth. Hippo did you get my pm? I'll take 3.
