I think by memory this is how I wired it up.
Viewed from the back of the trainer plug where the wires would be soldered on.

Another good day slope soaring at Don heads today, pity the wind wasn't stronger most it got up to was 12km/hr.
Managed some good flights with the weasel and speedo.
Here's some pics I took. Not the best, I was taking them with one hand while flying with the other.
Paul specked out his easystar and almost ended up out in Bass straight.
Brendan brought along his new wevo, really cool kit.....Must resist!
Craig came up from Hobart and managed to hunt down enough lift for his fat albert.
Cheers....Continue Reading

Here's a few pics slope soaring at Mt. Myrtle, Elliot,Tasmania, Australia from a couple of weekends ago.
Craig came up from Hobart for the day with his LEG fat albert.
Paul maidened his new bee. I flew the weasel with lots of ballast.
We had a good strong W-SW wind blowing. In the end we ran out of stuff to use for ballast.
Great day, can't wait to get up there again soon and try out my new speedo thermo and JW 54".

Here's a few pics from a great day slope soaring at Don heads, 7AD slope 9th January 2009. We had a nice gentle NE sea breeze.
Doug came up from Hobart with his MS composit swift II's, MPX fox chuckie and his newly repaired Jart but unfortunately there wan't enough wind too see the Jart take to the skies. Paul flew his EasyStar, Big mugi and EPP delta pusher. I maidened my MPX fox chuckie and flew my weasel which as always flew great despite having a half stripped out servo which must have been caused by "car hangar rash".
All in all a great day!
Cheers....Continue Reading

Here's a couple of pics of my Multiplex Fox Chuckie slope conversion.
Ailerons + elevator, 3 x 3.7g servos, 350mAh nimh battery.
Maidened last week, needs a bit of cg tweaking but flies pretty good.
