    Ah i remember buying one of those last time i did this kinda thing. Which one do i need to get...Hi-tech or Futaba? As i learned from my last experience, i need to get the one that matches the brand of servo!

    So the module in that goes in the gauntlet . . . You have a small clip for the A23 battery. . with with the slightest movement the battery falls off. How do you (or anyone else) have this installed in the gauntlet so you can move your arm around and not worry the battery falling out?

    I understand i can use hot glue to mount the board but that doesn't keep the battery from popping out. With the slightest movement the battery falls out and if its inside the gauntlet I can't do anything about it once I'm all suited up. Does anyone have some photos f what they did to keep the battery from falling out of the gauntlet board?

    Ok so I bought this extender piece for the servo. it looks to be the same size and pattern, but I cannot get it on, Anyone else having a problem, or does it slide on easy?

    I think he meant to actually put a dab of hotglue on the battery. mine shot out of the holder also, but I stretched the spring out alittle bit and put a small piece of electric tape over the battery and connectors. I tried hot glue, but I didn't like not being able to remove the battery.

    If you're currently offering these, I may need to take you up oin it. Already have 2 of your older versions...

    Would the servo side work with the old transmitter?

    no,the Modulation is diffrent to the servo.the new one is Frequenz modulatet and the old one works only with positiv and negativ power.i tried 100 ways to make it but no way.

    Hey m8, you should try using sellbuddy to sell these. Its really easy, and I could use the input and testing. Anyone that starts selling during beta, will get 3-6 months of unlimited ads free (always free to sell one item at a time though).

    It would be a huge help to get others using the product to sell.

    Has anyone gotten this installed completely and working? I don't see any photos in this thread. When i put mine in the servo goes either down or up and wont go the other way. It's almost like it is trying to go up or down further than the space allowed for the rangefinder. I hear the servo still running and pushing down even when it's all the way down. How do you adjust it?
  23. Jan 10, 2014, 10:57 AM - Re: NEW: Rangefinder remote kit and self contained lights #123

    Make sure the stalk is positioned correctly on the shaft extension. If it sounds like its trying to go further down than it can actually move, the stalk may need to be loosened and pushed back.

    What i do when setting these up is make sure the shaft is fully in the down (or up) position and then attach the stalk. Most servos are automatically set for 90 degree rotation. If it does that both ways it may be set for more than 90 degree rotaion. If thats the case, the servo needs to be replaced. When you buy servos you have to specify the rotation desired. My modelcraft one was correct in that aspect, but I bought a different servo to use because i wanted a low profile one, and also the hi-tec c1 shaft extension doesnt fit correctly on the modelcraft servo.

    I bought the Hi-tec HS-77BB lo-profile servo, and the hi-tec c1 shaft fits on it perfectly and its about 1/2" more shallow, so it gives you more room in the helmet

    HS-77BB Low Profile
