Good evening. Does anyone have a good part number and source for the EXT-VOL adapter that comes with the 7003 RX? I'm looking for 3-4 of them. Can't find them on Towers' Site.

PS Not the $50 dollar action just the short cable contained therein.

Your best bet is ebay. I have made the cables from scratch before, by sourcing the connectors. But its pain in the *ss to make. Not worth the trouble.

Thanks but that's not the cable i'm looking for. I have plenty of those. I'm specifically looking for the cable/short extension that comes with the rx that plugs into port2

I suspect you will have to buy it from the Futaba Service Center as a repair part. Then you will still need the $17 cable. Or you can just buy the $50 voltage sensor. Or better yet, buy the $70 current sensor, which gives you voltage, current, and capacity.
If these receivers are going to be used with a FBL controller, get a controller that feeds this info to the receiver.

Btw, you may want to try RCJapan. They can get a number of parts you will not find on Tower's site.

I'll call Hobbico mañana. I have quite a few of those $17 dollar micro pico cables laying around. As indicated before I only need the short extension.

I don't think you can source them separate. You are talking about the little circuit board that connect to port 2. I might have an extra one. from a heli I lost.

Here's the Futaba external voltage cable:

FUTM5551 CA-RVIN-700 EX VLT CBL R7008SB US$19.99

These parts can be ordered through any hobby retailer who sells Futaba systems and accessories.

It's not an S-Bus2 sensor, but the cable you plug into the external voltage slot on your receiver.

Thanks Brother but that's not the part I need. Futaba Part# P-S412 (External Voltage Adapter) is what's needed.

Not familiar with that part number. The Futaba R7003SB receiver comes with an external voltage cable, and then you must connect it to the part I mentioned in my previous post. That's per the R7003SB instructions:

I have lots of the CARVIN cables. It's the extension that's elusive. 7008 architecture is built into the RX. 7003 is external via the short extension which contains what would be the 7008 architecture. In any event, as I mentioned. I've no need for the CARVIN; just the 7003 extension which Hobby services doesn't have; sooooo I summoned the Lads @ Fast Lad UK and viola. But I could use a few more. Trust me; lol the part number I have is the external voltage adapter. I guess Futaba USA's thinking is that if you misplace or damage it you'll have to fork out for the entire assembly. I ain't mad @ that but I still think it should be a part that's in stock.
