Hi, am ready to buy a board or two. I am also ready to pay for parts you have + schematic as far as I need to create another sized board for Futaba T7U to fit.

I too would be interested in a couple boards.
PM me if you have any repaired boards that you can part with.

Always the case (and lack of skill in that area) that stops me.

No need to fabricate it from scratch. ... 4AodBzsAkw Front Panel Express will mill it out, labels and all, in the thickness and colour of anodized aluminium you desire, and they can build it as just a single panel or an enclosure. I have used them for various bits and pieces in the past, and their quality /service is excellent. If you were going for a tray type radio, methinks a simple panel would be best - let the tray be the rest of the case.

Their software to do the layout work is free on the site.

There are also cases available, last time I checked, over on the Yahoo Groups MP8k list for building custom radios that are ready for you to drill additional holes for putting switches in odd places, etc.

Now that sounds nice. Like the idea of a tray format TX made from real metal. Mind you. Metal can be pretty cold to touch in the winter.

The Frsky Taranis is essentially the same board in a better case!

Has anyone looking for a skyboard thought of emailing SkyNorth about any returns or extras he held back on now that time has passed?
Just guessing but worth a try.

I have an extra, but I lost the USB cable for it.

And it has a 128 in it. That is the xr's only redeeming quality in my book!

FYI, I learned last weekend that this shop still had 20pc in stock: ... oard-.html

So if you're OK to pay the European price, you can have one.
