I have a receiver crystal and a pro piccoboard, but I don't know how to install the crystal. I see a socket for it, but the plug is way to big for the little crystal leads. Am I supposed to solder it? Is there a polarity? If so, which way does it go?

If its a normal futaba type crystal it should just plug in with out needing any doctoring or soldering to either the Piccoboard/Crystal. Have you got the ablilty to post some pics? I don't understand where you've got leads coming from either...

The crystal came from helihobby.com, I don't know what type. Did they give me the wrong kind?

I don't see any other place to put the receiver crystal. The piccoboard manual has a picture pointing to that spot with an arrow that says 'Receiver crystal'. I am beginning to think I have the wrong kind. Can anybody confirm that?

What you've got there is a "wire ended" crystal meant to be soldered onto a board and not plugged into a socket. The blue socket is right, the crystal is wrong.

This may be simple error on HH's part, or not. Send it back and make sure you get a proper replacement or a full refund.

Thanks Rob_T. The crystal came with a package, I did not order it seperately. Thats why I was not sure if it was wrong. I thought it was more likely that I was doing something wrong, rather than HH. I will see if I can get it exchanged.
