Antenna patch

Yes conectir on the board, then any antenna with u.FL fits. It's not for the faint at heart to solder those u.FL to the board, but can be done. Next time I have mine open I'll take a picture if you need/want it.

Re: Antenna patch

and if you look at the tracks on the stock board (and you have the skilz or knows some one with them) you can stick in a u.FL on there. I have done that some time ago and it works fine. that is just a FYI.

Also Note, on any solar system you want any measurement and controlling to use absolute minimum power. Those LED meter do eat a fair chunk of power. The meters listed above on ebay can be bought very cheap, if you search a bit on ebay. have Fun :D

Most cheap dvm needs very low supply and current. IMHO you don't need a ubec. You can get units (display only) ready made for this. I will have a look for some links on ebay when I had some sleep, just back from nightshift. I made some circuits for the same purpose many years ago, it was self contai...

Re: Help with Frsky Lite as TTL converter

I'm from SA originally, but live in Germany.
I think you have been answered in the other thread. I was not sure if maybe the regulator got overloaded. if it does then you have the same type of symtoms, but seems it is not the problem in this case.

well TC use the same RX, and for him it works with a stock 9x (stock firmware) on the controller. He tested this and could not duplicate it.

Re: Help with Frsky Lite as TTL converter

As suggested elsewhere also, See if you can "tap" your 5v from the Buzzer/switch board, Not from the main board. You may be overloading your main board 5v regulator. That regulator is rated only 100ma ...and the one on the switch board is also 100ma but it's not used.

The only thing you have to watch out for is radio setup like trim and endpoints. Changing RF modules types may require some small adjustments, but in theory it should all work.
