Its not just the switch, the PCB it attaches too is pooched, which has both switches on it <sigh>

One of our club members is an electronic specialist and he says he has the switchs and he can fix a PCB as long as it has not reached to point of being turned to dust...

He also has a spare 9C... my urges to kill are subsiding.

Guys if my hands were better I'd fix those switches for you.
I am able to solder now but I just do it for myself. It is just so easy to screw up a board and lift a pad.

Its oldschool, but wire can be used where the copper has lifted from the board. I guess I'm dating myself....I remember perf boards and tubes....wire snaking amongst parts the likes of which only an electronics geek would recognize.

There is no doubt there is tricks to fix it but it is not within my tolerence to do so.

He told me
"by bad , do you mean un-repairable even for someone who was hired by NASA to do emergency repairs on satellites... Unless the board has turned to powder, anything is possible"

I did that waldo

Very simple procedure, and it seems to work great

Zap strapped on tank and just rep lugged two tubes.

Wish I knew about this long ago before fooling around with perry pumps

i've repaired many a PC board with wire wrap. This was done on air port nav systems.
It's ok to do that as long as it's done with in IPC 610 guide lines. Which is also the same as NASA's guide lines.
Like I said if I was able to repair it for you I would DOG but I still have tremors in my hands.

Thanks for that Kerwin... The drive to his house was much closer.

He said if nothing else they could be wired to the switches direct without the board so there is options. I dont even use those 2 switches <more for the Heli functions> but I dont like anything half arse. He lent me his spare 9CHP so I can continue configuring the SHP and I have my Compac so I have a couple of my planes.

David22.....videos please!!!

Half arse is definitely not the way to go.....now full arse is a different matter all together.

Kerwin....sorry to hear about the continuing problems.....you're flying though!!!!!

Any body have an idea where I could get the balancing specs for a Global Wattage Empress? What's the norm for a top-wing trainer type airplane.......1/3 back from the leading edge? Thanks.

Oh, it's Saturday......who's flying?

Snow, you could always start at 25% of the mean aerodynamic chord. Safest way to go.
