MY 10 channel reeduino transmitter

Post by drigotti » 10 Nov 2018, 02:16

Just started putting together a homemade 10 channel reed transmitter based on Phil's encoder. (Thank You Phil!) I purchased a 10ch Controlaire reed transmitter that was in very sad shape off of eBay. I harvested 5 switchcraft toggles, an on/off toggle and a edgewise panel meter. The case will be made from a BUD #CU-3008-A aluminum enclosure measuring 7 x 5 x 3 (178x127x76).
I plan on adding a buddy box switch as an addition to the Spektrum DM9 module for the RF.
Anyway...the journey begins! Stay tuned!

Is the original case beyond repair Dave? I always liked the look of Controlaire gear
though we didnt see many over here, even Mules were unusual.
Cheers

Phil,
The tx was missing the back and the front looked like someone sat on it. The antenna was broke in two. No saving it possible. Getting the toggles was the main idea. They are in good working order.

Here's the final result. The aluminum case is wrapped in vinyl. Callie Graphics supplied the decals from my art work. I'm scratch building a Carl Goldberg Sr. Falcon to fly with this setup.
Thanks to all for the help!

You did a really nice job on the 10 channel Reeduino golden retriever transmitter!

The Sr. Falcon combined with your "new" radio should make a fun package.

For what its worth I have attached a copy of the decal sheet that came with my original Sr. Falcon kit.
I have tried to clean up the yellowing using windows "paint", there may be a few blotches left.
