I just bought the align 6a external bec. Is there a way to mount it on the outside of the machine so I don't have to remove the canopy?
Any photos will be great.

Thanks
Luis

A search for "switch mounting" in the T600 forum will present many relevant discussions including Align regulator mounting and 2-in-1 switch mounting.

I've both mine mounted in the position it shows in the blueprints. It allows you to access the switch just inside the canopy near the main needle (see pic in my Gallery)

I would suggest you add some hot glue or similiar to the wiring where it exits the Heatshrink both ends as this seems to be a weak point.

Ive got mine mounted on the plastic nose section , ive then drilled a larged hole in the canopy with a tapered hole cutter , so I can flick the switch and check the batttery level.

In the position I described above you can see the battery level LED's as it is shaded by the canopy whilst behind the model on the bench and in the hover.
