Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

rctimer Telemtry/GPS cables

Previous topic - Next topic


My green wire broke off my GPC cable so I';m using the telemtry cable for now. It';s so tiny, I don';t think I can bodge a fix though I';m open to suggestions.

Does anyone know if I can get a replacement anywhere? They can be seen here connecting the GPS and telemetry to the APM http://www.rctimer.com/product_837.html

Cheers, I shot off an email to umts and byod only seem to have the six cable/connector version, I need 4-pin to 5-pin (don';t know name/type of connectors I need).

I';ve since discovered, the 4xconductor cable I need has a DF13 4-pin connector at one end, and DF13 5-pin connector at the other.

I also require a 5 pin. They seem to be like rocking horse @@@@. Why do these manufacturers insist on these horrible df13 connectors!? The crimp tool is like £500! And the crimps and connectors arent cheap and difficult to get hold of. They use 0.1" headers for half the board and nasty df13 plugs for the other half. Is it not possible to make the whole board 0.1" headers!?

Thank gawd it was the 4-pin connnector end where the wire snapped off the crimp. Both telemetry and GPS kits came with original cables so I chopped and spliced. Not pretty.

As for DIY crimping, I can';t even see the crimps without magnification. Not sure I';ve strong enough lenses to work at that level these days.  :embarrassed

This is the 4-pin to 5-pin cable I use on my APM2.5 to hook up CN-06 GPS devices. You may have to move the TX/RX wires about to achieve the serial data crossover. That is easily done with a sewing needle to pull up the plastic locking tag (be gentle and careful not to overdo it) and extract the connector.

I';ve had a few of these from UMTS - they deliver very quickly too.  A bit pricey including postage, but cheaper than trying to tool up to make your own, as others have observed  ::)
