Opened Overdrive


Well after some hours of playing around with the jlx overdrive, heres what I've got for now...

Removed wheels from Overdrive, opened chassis and pcb cover:

next, unsoldered the tech 1 rc brain ;) and added some screw contacts (dont know the correct english words)

ok, ive done the first preparations, next thing is to go to the elctronics shop to buy better fittng contacts and cables with correct colors, but now ...

... to find out how those optocouplers work, I played around with a bread board and (pervert I am) a singel power source. I attached one led to each (theoreticaly separated) circuit. Here switch is off and so are LEDs ...

.. here I press the button and both LEDs are on ..

Well time for bed now. cu tomorow.
