    Hi all

    Last year I had to make a emergency swap of the controller card to my spare falcon and it was done on the roof so I seem to misplaced all the connector, can someone please let me know where to get some replacements and the size?

    cheers
    Richard

    If you're talking about the small 4-pin connector, that's the type that was linked to.

    Be aware that there are several makes of similar 3.5mm pitch 4-pin plugs and they don't always interchange well.

    The link I posted shows ones that look like those used in both the Falcon and Pixilite16 boards
    I used them for the LOR Pixie16 - they were a perfect fit. - no guarantee they will fit yours.
    You have to purchase the complete unit. Base socket and plug, but at that price, they are not expensive.
    You could also try Jaycar, though there's are nearly $ 5.00 each.

    This link is for a 10 lot buy @ $4.18
