Power cable for AD20/PS2
« on: August 27, 2006, 03:51:28 PM »
I power my AD20 and PS2 via RC battery packs.  One cable has been giving me trouble so it's time to make some new ones.  I have obtained the male ends for the connection to the RC batteries.  The existing cables have a straight mono 1/8" male connector.  I want to switch to a right angle connector and I can't find what I'm after.  I can find the connector without wiring no problem, but idealy I'm wanting a cable that I can hack up to connect with the RC adapter.  Been looking online, but to no avail.  Cound someone point me to a cable with a right angle mono to hack up?  If all else fails I'll make the right angle cabling myself but I'm no expert solderer, so I figured I'd try the TS base first.    - John

when i ran a rc set up into my ps-2, i just used a adaptaplug set up.  they are available in ra 1/8 ts. 

only soldering (easy at that) would be if you wanted to tin where the hacked up rc plug went into the adaptaplug lead but could tape it good too.

Hooray!  My lazy ass finally assembled new cables last night.  Adaptaplug 6' extention, two adaptaplug 'F' right angle mono adapters, and two sets of RC battery repair kits.  A couple snip snips, a crimp crimp here and there, shrink tubing and voilla.  Initial testing indicates all is well.  We'll see how it holds up for NMAS on Saturday.

For anyones future reference:
