faulty E700 PUB wanted - pretty please (-:

Anyone got a faulty E700 PUB they dont want?
I damaged mine (what a plonker !) and need to recover some parts from a doner board.
I'm willing to pay a reasonable price.


Thanks

Re: e700 PUB operating voltage range ?

Thanks Somebloke, yes I received the E700 and it does run down as far as 6v without issue.

e700 PUB operating voltage range ?

Sorry if this was covered before.

How low in voltage can the E700PUB operate?
I know it states 12v, but devices can often operate at lower than stated voltages...

I want to run it from 7.2v (2S Lipo), so would I need a voltage step-up board or will a 2S lipo run it?

Thanks

Re: Lenses for spotter- yes again!

I see what you mean, very fiddly in the field, zoom and focus are nor easy to get right in the dark.

Re: Black sun ruby

I see the BS Ruby is designed for 1 battery, i.e. 4.2v max.
So there is no on board regulator I assume.

Does anyone know if a 2 battery version will become available?
My DIY system used 8.4v for everything.

Thanks

Re: i.r relection

Nice solution. I fixed my moderator reflection problem by fitting a sun shade extension to the scope. It casts a shadow over the moderator so no reflection. I also lowered the IR source so it's closer to the scope, then moved it backwards closer to the stock, these changes also helped put a shadow f...

Re: New scope from Falcon...s18i

I ended up getting a great deal on a falcon m18+, ffp 4-18x44. It works great with night vision, the fine cross hairs are clearly visible, without illumination. From x4 to X15 it's clear as a bell, but just as you approach x18 it gets dimmer but still usable. I guess the 50mm objective would be even...
