I thought this would fit, but it doesn't!

The receiver seems to have different (smaller) connectors than listed on the website. Here is a photo:


What connector is this?
I'm willing to bet it's a Molex Picoblade 3 pin connector at 1.25mm pitch.

It is nice to see that you are making the casings tight. The small size of your receivers is one of the main attractions and you should try to make the casing as tight as possible
The prototype does not have any screws. Might I assume that you are contemplating using glue to hold the case together? It would be very good to be able to open the case and put it back together again. You could consider using the a product sticker as a wrap around tape. To open the case one would cut the sticker at the side of the case. To put it back together one would apply some clear tape on top of the cut sticker.

The OrangeRX receivers are all made in Orange color plastic. This is a distinguishing feature for them. You could consider using transparent yellow plastic for promoting your brand in the same way.

Also, yours looks like this product:
http://www.lemon-rx.com/shop/index.p...product_id=104

and not the one you have linked in your prior post. In which case, if the description is correct, they are JST-SH connectors at 1.0mm. If you can check with a pair of calipers the spacing of the pins it'll tell you - I've been waiting on these rxs with 1.0 mm connector, as that's the connector that works with Spektrum linear ultra micro servos and the tiny rotary servo they offer.

You are right. I ordered them and at a later time checked what connectors are used. I must have checked the wrong product page... Stupid me.

Spektrum has a tiny rotary servo?

If you mean HobbyKing, yes, the ultramicro linear servos fit the new Lemon (1.0mm pin spacing as the AR6400), but the 1.7g rotary servos need a new plug, having 1.25mm pin spacing. As an aside, I just noticed that the ultramicro linear servos are listed twice on the HK site: here(regular throw?) and here (long throw?).

They do! Pricey, but plug & play with AR6400 / AS6410 series boards

Thanks, Ben, I obviously didn't know that .... Not too pricey, IMO, since they cut the price in half. I have no idea of how this Spektrum with its "0.18 kg-cm @ 4.8V" torque stacks up against the HK's "0.075kg @ 4.2v".

At any rate, good to know I have an alternate small rotary choice choice to plug into my Lemon.

The real question is why are aircraft like the UMX Yak and UMX Beast not equipped with little rotaries.....

Can someone confirm that the little rx pictured earlier by JenR actually have the 1.0mm pitch JST-SHR connectors?

Yes, they do!(I have three of them and checked before my last post).

Just to clarify, Lemon currently make the 6 channel featherlight with both 1mm JST-SH connectors (the one shown in the picture and at the link below) AND with 1.5mm JST-ZH connectors (Spektrum AR6300 type).

This one.

http://www.lemon-rx.com/shop/index.p...product_id=102


We are hoping they will soon have a third variant with Molex Picoblade 1.25mm (HobbyKing 1.7g servos) as well.

Awesome. I know a long time ago I had looked at the one which must have the 1.5mm pitch connectors and was disappointed that it wasn't the UMX compatible system that I had wanted. I failed to see these had been released. Very cool!

Thanks!

I had thought so too but it's been confirmed they're JST-SHR 1.0mm pitch connectors
