Header rows on the R/C

Has anyone found a proper header or connecter to use with the input rows on the R/C. I havent had much time to check it out for myself and i would hate to use a bunch of cd-rom to sound card cables for their ends. I am going to try and measure the pins and check out NIO and the other electronics suppliers. If this has been covered in another thread or has been posted I would appreciate a link to it.

Re: Header rows on the R/C

I can't say for sure, because I don't have the controller here with me, but unless they changed something, a standard PWM cable should fit it.

Re: Header rows on the R/C

Right now, we're using IDE cables salvaged from old computers. We just need to cover the signal pin for each 3pin set, so having two rows isn't a big deal. If we find something cheap that works better, though, we'll probably be quick to use it.

$5 each, from Innovation First, is pretty steep. Tower Hobbies' $8 isn't any better.

Re: Header rows on the R/C

3-conductor housings: jameco.com, part number 157382, $0.24
female crimp pins: jameco.com, part number 100765, $0.09

The documentation describes how to use them. I use the cheap crimper from Radio Shack. Buy 50% more crimps than you need because you will mess up a lot until you get the hang of it. A pack of three housings w/ 9 crimps from the local hobby shop costs $6.00.

I've been using some nifty AMP connectors that I found at Digi-key. The information can be found toward the bottom of the infrared beacon tracking FAQ.
