Default sanwa super exzes battery box

hi all,
i just bought this radio, used and without battery.
therefore i'd like to ask you:

- which voltage must be used?
- must the black wire be at the center or at one side of the plug (and which one)?

in case i use wrong voltage or i swap the cables, i will fry my radio, isn't it?

Hi,

Can you post a picture of the front of the transmitter.

Want to be 100% what version of the Sanwa exzes you have. I've a couple here and I'll check battery configuration for you.

Hi,

This is what I have:


Battery box:



The Sanwa Super Exzes is the last of the 'old' version of the Sanwa Exzes series. It uses a 3s lipo or 8 aa batteries and the connection is the (very) old Sanwa style. (It is opposite to the now standard Futuba order.)
So as per the photo, negative is the middle connector, positive is the top connection. (Note this is the reverse of the now standard Futuba order.)

Hope this helps. Any questions, just ask.

MiCk B. :-)

thanks Mick!!!
the manual was not clear, and i think that having connected the battery the wrong way damaged my radio unfortunately...
i'll ​​​​​​ get in touch with a radio technician, hoping the problem can be easily (and cheaply) solved.

Hi,

No problem at all. If I remember correctly there is a tiny (surface mount fuse) along the power track, coming from the pins where you plug in the battery. It's a small black square along the copper track (I think).
You need to take the transmitter apart to find it.
Basically follow the track on the PCB board from where the battery plugs in.
