De-pinning FS-iA6B

Has anyone ever attempted this? I am in the middle of a small build and really don't see a clean way to mount my receiver. If I could remove the pin board part of the receiver and solder wires directly to it this would become a very compact ppm/diversity receiver! I am half tempted to just give it a try, however, these buggers seem to be low on stock everywhere and if I ruin this one I am not flying for a while...

Any idea if this is possible?

Also, I attached a random picture that I found that gives an idea of the junction between the main board and the pin board. I can take more descriptive pictures later.

Tricky but doable, I did it on my second try .
What i did was to remove the pins first, by heating with the solder from the back, and pulling with small pliers. Then remove the left over solder with soldering wick and disassembled. Again a test of patience but not very difficult.

Thank you guys very much! You inspired me to try it myself and it went very smoothly and allowed my build to come together very nicely!

How do you bind your TX/RX if you need now? Do you have a way to do it without the jumper beetween Bind pin and ground?

I know this is an old thread.
Can I de-pin the side board from the fs-ia6b receiver? Or do I just leave it in the case?

Depinned mine.
You can bind after by shorting ground to bind pad.

To wire:
ibus servo top far left (with pads facing away away from you, antennas toward you)
ground top and bottom far right (this would be bottom left when flip over, pads facing away from you)
power bottom all but far left and right.

Added some pics of 2nd one I just did. Removed pins this time which was easier.
Blue wire in last pic is iBus hooked to top left pad, black and yellow and ground and power in 2nd to last pic hooked to bottom last pad (ground) and one in (power). As you can see a bunch of power pads ripped off but should not me an issue.

bind is one in from ibus so 2nd in on top left.

So to bind short pad that is one in on top left to pad on far right top.

Note the metal cover will lift right off if you tape Rx to frame with double sided tape and try to remove Rx. At least mine did and I had not even pressed down on it. I reinstalled with some hot glue when I hot glued wires and antenna.

Further Question on De-pinned


Sorry to re-open this thread.

So I have purchased a P180 180mm from gearbest;

There are no bind procedures presented within any help documents. I have found your thread thank god! I was wondering if you could please explain in finer detail exactly how to bind without my key. I understand you short to ground. If I view your images, are you specifying the "back view ground" on the right and the "ppmch1" pad on the front? This will be very helpful

For future reference: short this wire (soldered next to the ibus) to ground on the other side of the board. ( pro tip : leave it attached with some heat shrink on one side)
