Hitec Flash 5 transmitter

If you have a Flash 5 or 5X, I'd like for you to look at something
inside it. Send me an email so we don't clutter the group.

Re: Hitec Flash 5 transmitter

It requires pulling the back of the tx off so you can see the circuit
boards if you are up to it.

Re: Hitec Flash 5 transmitter

I got a Flash 4 on ebay. I opened the case to check out the guts -
the manual says the 5 channel stuff shows in the display and to ignore
since the switches are not installed, and I was curious if maybe the
connections are there.

Not many people know that a Futaba 4VF needs only a mini toggle switch
and a couple short pieces of wire to add channel 5 for retracts! The
pads are unused, but available and functional !

Anyway, the righthand stick ( looking at the inside ) has a pcb for
it's pot connections, and there are 3 unconnected pads at the top of
that pcb. The trainer switch connects to 2 pads on the top of the
lefthand stick pcb. I'm curious if those 3 pads are for the 2 dual
rate switches and the ch 5 gear switch, and if so, how are they wired.

Re: Hitec Flash 5 transmitter

Above the boards that the pots connect to s a board labeled - Flash options
2 PCB - all switches go to connectors on this board.

On the top right of the board is a 5 pin connector wired from top to
bottom.
red black white red black going to switch 1 and 2.

The top left wired black red white red whit goes to switch 3 and 4. The
right side (viewed from the back) is fed from the connector on the pot
board. The same is true for the left pot board feeding the left connector.

The right hand wires feed:
top to bottom
red center sw1
white top sw1
black bottom sw1
red top of sw2
black center of sw2
bottom sw2 N/C

I do notice that the 2 and 3 pins on the 7 across the top board were not
flow soldered like the rest and appear to have been hand added. These go
from the pot board (RT02)via the option board to sw2.

Hope that was of some help.

Re: Hitec Flash 5 transmitter

I printed your reply. I'll take a look at mine in the next day or so,
but it doesn't sound promising.

Thanks
