Eclipse 7 switch relocation
I want to move the ch 7 switch to the gear location and vis versa, I'm using ch 7 to toggle a camera shutter and it's current location is very difficault to get to while flying. I opened the radio to see if I can simple trade their locations but there's not enough wire to do so..... I was thinking of cutting the wires and soldering them mid way. I don't use the gear switch and probably never will. Has anyone done anything like this before? Thanks for the help!

I've moved switches around in an Airtronics RD before with no problems. Some things to keep in mind:

-I'm sure it will void any warranty you have

-Take care to ensure good, clean solder joints

-Be careful not to get any solder splatter or anything like that inside your tx

-Cover any bare solder joints with heat shrink to keep anything from shorting out.

It all depends on how comfortable you are with your soldering skills!

Rather than splice the wires in the middle, you might want to consider just replacing the wires from switch to switch completely, with longer wires. That might be a bit cleaner and neater, without having a solder joint in the middle...

Good luck!

I opened the radio today and switched ch7 and the gear toggle by cutting and soldering the wires. Job was very clean, heat shrink worked out too. Those are some small wires!www.rceyeonline.com

Good deal. Yeah, that's one of those things where neatness counts!
