Mine only has 4 channels, no frills, like yours. They just didn't cut the wires though.

Yes I just checked and the voltage regulator with a multimeter and it is a 5v regulator. They have to drop the voltage to 5v, as the 8 bit microprocessor only works with 5v. The CPU specs I mentioned in my link earlier, do show that the CPU would be running at about 5v in order to use a 4mhz crystal for its clock frequency.

Now they could operate the rf module at a higher voltage, but I didn't check that.

The 4 wires on mine, from that connector, go to the 2.4ghz RF module.
The small connector with 4 wires (next to the larger connector with 12 wires) goes to the trainer jack. The larger 12 wire connector is to the pots on the two gimbals.
