RD6000 PPM Connection Points

I'm trying to install the FrSky 2.4Ghz module into my older Sanwa/Airtronics RD6000 and can't locate the connection points for the PPM signal. Has anyone done this already, and if so, can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Success!!

Success!! My RD6000 is now up and fully functional on 2.4Ghz! It really wasn't rocket science once I was able to locate the PPM access point.

I pulled Gnd off of the gnd1 point on the board, V++ from the top of the on/off switch, and the PPM signal off of the trainer plug.

A quick note here: The trainer plug on the RD6000 is a bit strange. Looking at the plug from the front, the signal in lead is at the far right, or Pin 5 if counting clockwise from the left. What's strange, is that the lead on my xmtr was black! Who uses black as a signal lead? There's a diagram of the plug at: OnGuard has posted an image of the plug at: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1098611&page=7

This little adventure wouldn't have been possible without the help of Scott Morton. Scotty, a big shout out and THANK YOU! for your time and advice.
