I think the Taranis Pistola by Eficker is one bloody brilliant idea. Not just for those of us who don't get the hang of driving surface vehicles with sticks, but as a system to replace most other pistol style transmitters when it comes to channels and fine tuning options.
The original design is only lacking 3 things that I am trying to add to it.
1.) Support for the 2nd Gimbal
2.) Having the 4th trim rocker switch
3.) being able to use the JR Module Extension.
As a first Step I've tried to modify the back plate so it can accept 3 new add on designs by providing 3 different kind of mounting options with the ability to route wires through them.
Changes to the Backplate so far are:
1.) Cloned the 3rd Rocker Switch location for the 4th
2.) Added a Mounting Spot on the left side
3.) Added a Mounting Spot on the right side
4.) Added a Mounting Spot behind the pcb.
5.) Freed up the rear mounting spots to be able to screw into them from the outside
The JR Module Bay is based off of dmyers7 Design.
I've modfied the Backplate so it can be mounted directly to the back of the Taranis Pistola.
It will use the lower Mounting holes of the PCB and will not block the Rocker switches or the Antenna Outlet. I don't know how to mount the cables yet, but I will figure that out eventually. The Bay itself is now securable via 2 screws to the backplate.
This Thing is a purely theoretical thing at the moment, and very much WIP since I haven't yet received my X7 and the other parts are still not done printing. So I have no clue if it will even fit where I have placed the mounting spots. You've been warned :-)
