Desensitize tuning knob on cheap eBay systems.

Recommended Posts

If like me, you've had trouble with the "Tuning" knob on the cheap imported systems, here's a quick and easy way to make it a little easier to tune. It won't help with the drifting and such, it just makes it easier to fine tune the receiver from the start.

I simply took the potentiometer out of the case, and added a 10 kilo-ohm resistor to each end of it. (two outside pins) It gives you a little less effective range for tuning, but makes it alot less sensitive. As the pictures below show, there's enough room for them to fit nicely back into the case.

Just thought I'd pass the info along... :)

Thats a good idea, maybe you could fit a multi turn pot ?
