My suggestion RD is to solder the wires direct on to the pcb, there is no need to use those high pins to soldet to.
if you solder direct to the pcb, you can lay down the wires neat and tifgt on each side.

First I removed the connectors and soldered the wires straight on the PCB. That makes a smaller PCB and it allows better positionning inside the handle
To fix the PCB inside the casing I will probably use hot glue
That's what I did :)

Ohe.... missed that 😁🍺

It would be a big help to post some pics of everything, RD. Then we may be able to help figure it out.

RD,

How did you remove the switch top off the RDR Cursor?  I can't seem to figure that out?

Ah, there we go.  I managed to get mine off somehow.  But what size are those allen bolts?  Mine are either too small or too big?

Roger that Olivier, the hot glue will work great. I use Velcro though just in case I ever have to remove it. Also, the thickness of the Velcro sometimes becomes an advantage as a standoff. Also makes a great insulator as you can usually cover the back of a PCB. But then again so does hot glue.

Hey guys,

Searching information in a 100 pages long WIP topic is far from easy. Very often you know some subjects of interest have been discussed in a guy WIP progress topic but you can't remember where.
To overcome that problem I spent a bit of time to create an index of my own WIP topic. I put it on the very first post of this topic with link in the relevant part of my progress:
http://www.viperpits.org/smf/index.php?topic=537.msg7062#msg7062

Hopefully that will help many of you.
And of course i will keep this index up to date as I progress

Great edit!

This should be standard method from now on. First post edited with the updates and an index.
All of us should do the same. Even me that my built is frozen and it doesn't have anything important to show,
I will do the same just for motivational reasons...

Many thanks!!

I wish to make a tribute to a man who started as an internet acquaintance and became a true friend over time.
We had very good moments together and he never hesitated to help in any way he could.
Arend was someone I could always rely on, only as true friends can.
He was very strong headed while his health decayed and full of courage and always wanted us not to worry.
I worried anyway but I didn't tell you enough buddy.

I'l like to express my huge gratitude to my friend Arend who never hesitate coming down from Holland to help me solve tricky problems :)
But when I see his expression (see below) working on my pit different voltage, I was really concerned :)



Thanks a lot Arend, your help in really priceless.

This is how I will remember you and I will miss you dearly.
I find some joy in the fact that many guys around the world will have a though for you when our cockpits come alive, thanks to you.

Farewell Arend.
Olivier

That's Arend how I remember him.
Checked old emails, my first contact with this great guy was in the Spring of 2011.
Thanks for posting this nice photo RD.
