    Yes, I do a board that runs wires inside the stalk to a 9V battery inside the helmet. To be entirely screen accurate the board would be inside the helmet, with wires running up the stalk, with only LED's in the top. You would then install a microswitch in the ear. I have done them this way for people as well, but the end user would have to have their own microswitch, and have some wiring/soldering skills, in order to run the wires and hook up the LED's.

    Not sure what you mean by blue switch. Basically I can provide my board with wires that you can run up the stalk, and solder the LED's to, and wires to solder to your own micro switch in the ear. Then you can mount the board inside the helmet. Some guys like it this way, especially if there is not a lot of room in the topper, or you want to use a microswitch instead of a tilt switch to activate. Personally on my display bucket, I have the board inside the rf topper, and run wires down the stalk to the battery, with a microswitch in the ear in the middle of the circuit.

    Re: Rangefinder boards

    Ditto if they are still available I would like to get one self contained to put in my FP rangefinder. I have the Ali ears for mine and no room for the micro switch.

    I assume these will work for an ASOK CC ? If so, I'm interested in taking a self-contained one.

    I make 2 types- one that is made specific for TF toppers, and the other is generic and fits FP, BM, DP, Asok and others.

    EDIT: Doesn't look like this will fit my current RF. Will keep it mind for an upgrade down the track though. Sorry for the hassle!
