Okay, found this: http://wiki.openpilot.org/download/a...cccopter03.jpg Not the best picture, but you could probably map out the connections via the picture.
Its dead easy to solder it, use power for the SBL jumper, this is 3.3V regulated.

Some more news, all new CCs in future will come with the serial cable now.

Adapter for Spektrum is being made as well for the people that want plug and play.
