Andrew,

The plug and play complete module of components is what makes your system attractive to me. Buying a box of components I have to solder together would be a showstopper for me. I have other things to do other than build a Heathkit. Anyway, take it as additional input.

Don't worry, I am 100% sure it would never be in any parts that need soldering. All plug and play... connectors and extensions.... just more flexible to allow many combinations of items. And you can still always 'stick them all together over the speaker box' too.

Yes your right. My suggestions is very easy to incorporate. There is NEVER any need for soldering with Micro bullets connectors. This is how I would offer the systems.

How can you say that? It is not your design.

Soldering is not an issue. I would liken it to ordering a brushless motor or ordering kit to make a brushless motor. I prefer the former not the latter.

I think your missing the point here. Currently, MrRcsound offers all their systems as a plug and play. These are ready to connect via a Y harness and work great right away. The reason I suggested this, as did others is that when you have two half systems that are soldered as one it makes it hard to install in most planes. All we are suggesting is that the systems remain plug n play but they are deassemballed via connecters NOT soldering. This will ensure the systems remain truly.. Plug n play

Rest assured, Andrew will never sell a 'needs soldering' version! LOL
(Well, unless he makes another version for some 'kit' reason... but highly unlikely)

The real story is....I'm not in Antarctica. I travel a real lot for work and sometimes have no idea where I am when I wake up.....sometimes I wish didn't remember. I get so many people asking me "where are you this time" when they ring my cell, I just say the South Pole. I can honestly say out of all the places I have been, I have only come across amazing people. You get the occasional ass but they are the exception. Kinda like RCG.

I think I'm missing it as well or not understanding? are you saying that the use of the servo style connectors instead of the origional hard wiring was your idea? or that there be soldered on Micro bullet connectors instead of the servo style connectors Like I posted in my Mod video?.

I'm not understanding where the bullet connectors come in at? or where?

The point is that I know.....
I won't bother explaining why.... We will see Andrew's view at some stage, lol.

The connector types are irrelevant, it just needs appropriate and different types for each interconnection (so that it is impossible for someone to mess it up!!).
I have been over all this many months ago.... so it is nothing new to Andrew, or me. Mine was fully re-wired as per all that above, and with silicone leads, as soon as I first got it (Late July), seeing right from initial assessment I saw the need for flexibility in anything I could envisage using it in. It also had some connection issues due to the stiff wire and those 'blah green connector blocks', hehe.

Everyone!!!! No need to be jumping to conclusions here.

When I first set out on this endeavor (endeavour for some of you ) my plan to was to make a sound system for the general flyer. One that is all intigrated as one unit, as small as I could possible make it, and with the mobility and flexibility to be moved from one plane to another, at the field, in a matter of minutes.

I have tested many different components, speakers, amplifiers, etc. in an attempt to deliver a high output of volume with a minimum of weight. I hand build and bench test each unit for approx. 10 minutes before boxing it up an shipping it.

My provisional pattent is based on the fact that the unit is just that, all assembeled, tested, mobile, and ready to run. That is not going to change. I would never just give a box of parts.

Let me explain what the new version will look like a little bit better. It will look ALMOST IDENTICAL to the current version. The main difference is, in place of using the industrial double stick to secure parts, it will be Velcro, so that the component can be easily removed if needed. Each component will alsohave connectors on the wires. The wires on the base unit will be kept short, but extention wires can be added in. This allows for the components to be moved if there is not room for the unit as a whole.

I will get a video done as soon as I get the prototype done. It will be easier to understand then.

Andrew,

Thanks for the clarification. Look forward to the video. I installed a MT-60 connector to connect my system into the power source. These are my favorite connectors for low amp purposes. Seems like 3.5mm bullet connectors would also be a good choice.

Regards,

Jack

Version 3

The video will have to wait till tomorrow probably. I want to get the new amplifier on it before I do the video. Here are some pictures of the Version 3 with the current amplifier.

As you can see, it still can be used all as one unit. If you require extra room in a praticular plane, the Velcro makes it easy to seperate. The connectors allow for wire extentions to be added in.
