Having got the XHT installed and tested I’ve tidied up the installation of the little FrSky daughter board today.
This little board, joined to the mail XHT RF board by a 4 wire cable, holds the dip switches for mode selection (D8 or D16, for instance), 2 status LEDs and a binding switch.
I could have left it floating around inside the F14 case but wanted to be able to see the LEDs whilst in operation and also bind to rx’s without opening the case even though it is very easy to do.
As I’m not using the multi- switch unit I made up a small plastic board to which I could fix the daughter board which is only 12mm x 22m roughly and had no fixing holes or space for them. The board I made is longer allowing it to be screwed to the back of the switch plate so that the LEDs shine through one of the clear plastic windows normally pushed out to make way for switches.
A careful bit of measuring allowed a hole to be drilled right through the clear cover plate and the switch mounting plate so that a little pointy thing can be inserted from outside to operate the binding switch.
Overall I’m very pleased that, apart from the 40MHz label still on the front of the case, this looks like it could be a 2022 2.4GHz F14 from Robbe.
Pat self on back 😊 tongue in cheek.
