You should design this so it can also take telemetry output from kiss

V2 already handles that along with OSD. Prototypes are on the way.

Awesome!

Aside from the cap that exploded I really like my V1 Reaktor, if you need someone to test V2 IŽd be happy to help you

Nice

I just wonder if my X4R-SB can stand in the back on the bottom plate with the new form of the PDB (the RSSI side).

How is powered the FC ?

Just connect to the 5v regulator on the PDB, although typically the X4R-SB would be powered by the Flight Controller to have a single cable from the RX to the FC.

I'am speaking about room space, not wiring

I'm not sure what you mean by "stand in the back". There is certainly enough room behind the PDB for the RX to sit on the bottom plate without extending past the back edge of the bottom plate if that is what you mean.

It's exactly what I mean (sorry for my bad english).

As you can see my X4R-SB with pin is about to touch the original PDB.

When do you expect V2 to be available? I just heard about your Reaktor frame last night and was about to buy two today but I don't want to have to turn around and buy two more PDB's for it right after buying the frames.

The current version PDB is the same size as the stock PDB. The new OSD version will be 15mm longer. You would have to de-pin the X4R-SB to have it fit back there with the V2 PDB.

I have ordered prototypes and expect them next week. Production units will be 2-3 weeks after that.

Ok, thanks for the heads up. I'll most likely order two or three frames now and then just buy the updated PDB's when they arrive later.

Do you sell those custom harnesses to plug the KISS FC into the PDB without soldering? I could probably build them myself pretty easily, but have no idea what the plug names are for the KISS side. Is it the same plug as on the PDB side?
