My #1253 is on its way to Australia; received email a week ago however the tracking page doesn't work just says my order is confirmed. Nevertheless, fingers crossed it'll be here next week or so. Very exciting!

Edit: Just read back a couple of pages; no need to be worried about no international tracking. And thanks SilentWarrior for that excellent review, the wait is so much easier now!

Alert!!
After receiving my parts, I finally had the time to open the housing of my throttle and disassemble it.
After putting the sensor into place, I was about to connect the pin to the PCB. Following the downloadable instructions (very precice, btw), I found, the connector of the sensor doesn't plug in easy to the counterpart on the PCB.
The photo in the instructions shows the red cable in the outermost left position
However, the red cable of the new sensor is on the other side of the of the pin.

I know that the connector has a specific shape to prevent plugging in the cable the wrong way, but regarding the picture in the instructions, my direction is wrong (at least if I refer to the colour of the cables)

So ... am I right to connect the pin to the PCB with the red cable on the right side? (like shown on the first picture)

Pic's attached (first mine, second frm. instructions)

Maybe someone can check in which direction the connector plug sits on their PCB?
Please! AGM 65 update and I can't fly the whole day long ;-)

Yes how you have it in your picture is correct - I've changed to some new cables recently and it looks like some of the colours are to other way around from the instructions.
As long as the connecter is in the correct way then it will be fine.

Very well spotted I will update the instructions accordingly soon.

Great initiative Delta. I love it when people in the community come up with their own (superior) solutions.

My slew button is starting to malfunction. The press down functionality still works, but the x-y movement is not recognized.

I am wondering whether your mod will fix this issue as it includes its own PCB. Can you comment on this?

Budgie. Two words. Get it. It's awesome. You'll actually love using the slew afterwards. A bit pricey but worth it

It should fix it yes - did it just randomly stop working at all or does it still move a little bit?
If it still moves a bit it should fix it - but if it just completely stopped it’s possible it could be something else wrong.
