Assan X8D Hack module
This is the Hack module as it comes in the box.
The radio I’m going to put it into is a Futaba 7C. Here is mine with the back of.
I drilled a hole for the RP-SMA connector (Antenna connector).
Screwed in place.
Next we need to find the VCC, GROUND and PPM signal. Here is the FASST module removed.
Pretty straight forward in my case. I will be using a switch to switch between the FASST and the Assan modules. Note the crazy colors on the cables!
Here is a simple wire diagram of how the switch is hooked up.
Soldering the switch.
Soldering the wires.
I placed my Assan module underneath the FASST module.
There will be no need to see the Assan LED as it also uses a very loud speaker as an indicator.
I placed my switch in the place where the crystal usually sits.
No worries about accidentally bumping the switch during flight.
Done! You can now use cheap receivers.
