Hi Everyone,

Sorry if this was covered in another thread.

Is this the transponder that we use at the Dojo?

TRP GiroZ Transponder V2

http://shop.tinyrc.com/product.php?productid=21125

Does it matter what number I get? I'm assuming someone already has 8,10 or 11, but those are the only number available right now.

thanks,

BT

B, it certainly does matter what # you get but I try to deliberately order #s that no one in our group has, so you're fine w/ your #11 that you ordered - thanks! :)

Hey Bryan,

Let me know how it goes with my hopefully-not-busted Transponder. You can either reply here or PM me, I check at least once a day here.

I will be probing it on my bench tonight. If it's a part other than the micro, we can probably fix it before the next gtg!

L, can you spare 5 cents to try to fix the transponder? It looks like you connected it backward and blew the protection diode. Like I said, it will cost you about 5 cents to try to fix it. I will get the part for you!

5 CENTS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOO!

I don't think I can afford that :(

just kidding, I'll give you 10 cents, keep the extra 5 for a tip!

actually D was making a digi-key order and he bought the repair part... so you can thank him if it works. I won't be at the GTG on the 29th, but D will have your transponder.....

Yeah, and when you're done w/ that, maybe you can look at L's transponder!? :D:p

FYI L it ended up being something like $0.36 so you owe me maad $$$ now! :D

For reasons beyond my control the part did not make it in time (it's currently in transit though) but I will get it to monkeyZ before the next event so he can get you sorted. :)


Btw, I have pretty much everyone's transponder #s on the little sheet I use to gather payment info/freq/etc. each week so will post a thread listing everyone's after confirming tonight. :)
