  1. Here is my almost finished ground station with the most recent addition. I vandalised a dashboard clock in order to get the case.
  2. Pea nuts. Done. I'll post a pic when i have it mounted nice and proper on the Rx.
  3. Thank you Thomas. My head is spinning from trying so hard to measure and remeasure all afternoon and solder without dammaging anything in the process.
  4. Now that is some weird s--t. I've noticed that the pics i posted were squeezed side to side but this is downright scary. I tried to edit the post to fix it but no good came out f it. Here is what i was attempting to post.
  5. Here is what i got so far:<BR>There are 2 free pins and 10 connected ones.<BR>The first free pin is dead meat regrdless.<BR>Video Tx off;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Tx on;<BR><BR>Second&nbsp;&nbsp;free&nbsp;&nbsp; pin 4.66v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 4.75v<BR>pin 1 (connected) 4.94v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 4.94v<BR>pin 2&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 2.50v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 2.51v<BR>pin 3&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 0.40v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 0.65v<BR>pin 4&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 1.05v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 4.26v<BR>pin 5&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 0.05v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 0.05v<BR>pin 6&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 8.94v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 8.94v<BR>pin 7&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 0.45v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 0.45v<BR>pin 8&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 0.05v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 0.05v<BR>pin 9&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 4.93v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 4.93v<BR>pin10&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 4.87v&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;4.87v
  6. Thomas, It is a 2.4GHz Lawmate standard Rx. I did just that, measured all the pins with the Tx off and than onceore with the Tx on. I just didn't write downm i was looking for a large variation on one of the pins. I'll doit again and write down the voltages. The only weird thing i noticed was pin 3 among the ones connected (the first 2 starting from antenna side are just hanging in the air) showed .64v with the Tx off and .32v with the Tx on.It is the only one as far as i can tell that showed any changes in voltage between turning on and off the Tx. Wich is a 1W Lawmate. I was affraid being in such close proximity in the sleeper of my truck something might give.
  7. For some reason they also got reversed but you get the picture.
  8. Someone sent me the first pic. The green/white wire is soldered to the RSSI pin of a Lawmate Rx.I can't tell for shure but it looks to me like the first pin. My Rx seems to have a slightly different pin arrangement and i tried measuring the voltages of all of them with the Tx off and on and there was no fluctuation on none of them.. Some of them measure 5v some more but the voltage staued the same regrdless of the Tx status. It's hard to focus and find a suitable angle with all that shiny stuff and on top of it all it seems that the quality is even worse after uploading.
  9. Anyone out there using a Lawmate Rx that could point to me the RSSI pin? I am reluctant to go by trial and error as i have a tendency to fry electronics.
  10. I'm still waiting on mine. Mr Ricky Ricardo did you hear that?
  11. What a neat setup you got there Phil.I envy you.
  12. Doc i probably did the same thing.I know i heated the crud out of it when i applied the heatshrink.now that i removed it to take pictures maby when i rewrap it again it will come to it's senses. Daniel please speak plain english.I have no clue what DIY and that other hulabaloo stands for.What i'm using is a former Eagletree Datalogger V2 who succumbed to my dremel in order to extract the Allegro sensor out of it.As far as i know it is the 50 amp version.And after you gave me all the help in the world and rereading the manual for the umpteenth time i hope i got it right.If not there is the new V3 recently unleashed upon the masses so i can always load up on some more Eagletrees.Or give Mark a chance to the title of world strongest sensor with the IF 100 amp.See how well it fares when i lay my hands and blow torch on it. Here is the order of the wires: green - pin 3 Allegro/pin 1 on the board(from left to right, facing the board with the battery on right) white - tab 4 Allegro wich on my setup goes the the ESC positive(if that makes any difference)second pin from the left on the board black - pin 2 (middle) Allegro, 3rd pin on the board red - pin 1 Allegro 4th pin on the board Please don't tell me screwed up yet again.I don't know if i can take it.And the clutch of my truck has decided to quit his day job so i'm not a happy camper stuck over the weekend at a Freightliner service center in tropical Minnesota.At least i have some time off to destroy more electronics. The Scorcher PS. I'm going to post a picture on RCGoups since i'm unable to diminsh even a VGA resolution photo to 120kb.I'm not only bad with electronics i'm also bad with software of any kind.
  13. Here is my best effort to date.Still a long way from home.
  14. I'm not shure what i'm doing wrong but i can't get the amps to read 0 and the ext voltage is nowhere near.It's fresh charged a 5s lipo wich should be 20.5v if i am to go by what the TP charger shows.I increased the value for the current sensor all the way to 1000 units and brought down the reading from 69 amps but i still get 1.7 amps with only the battery hooked to the sensor.I suspect i screwd up the Allegro again for the 2nd time.And the 2s lipo supplying power to the Dragon also is messed up.
