Integrated: I will snap in interior shot when I get a chance. I know Stephen has one of his inside (which he sent me for ideas).

Stephen: I actually put switches in the middle on purpose so they would be harded to get bumped or switched as I may have chargers on them and don't want it getting powered off. You can still easily get to them when needed. I used it today for first time and worked great!

all is good!

Bump for a great thread full of HOBBYIST ingenuity!

I just made a killer junction box. Pictures will be up today. Thanks to John F. for posting the Ohms, resistance formula.

The cheapest Alinco pwr supply are at www.hamradio.com

Cheap Alinco

I paid $149.95 3 and 1/2 year ago, now the price still the same. They offer free shipping for stuffs over $100.

They are 12 stores throughout the US.

I use it to power my Two-Way radio(s) and R/C racing for almost 4 years... Never ever have any problem.

Again JAP stuffs are good!!!!!

After reading the addendum and adding the sandbars to the 5v line I got a miniscule--- .015 v change.
Has anyone gotten the hoped for change in voltage?
As it is mine is fine for running the pulsar but APS just won't function on the low voltage.
I actually added 2 more just to see what happened but to no avail. Then I decided I better quit before I fried something.

Also, anyone looking for some CF decals: http://www.decalkits.com/carbonfiber.html
$20 for two 10"x14" is pretty good deal (especially compared to "R/C CF decals")
