I thought I’d better start part 2 of the QCX Mini thread, as there are probably a few more tweaks in the pipeline as more people complete their build and start activating with it. My build is coming along nicely:
I decided not to install the reverse polarity diode, as it will make installing the 10uf capacitor in parallel with the voltage regulator easier. I always use powerpoles, so reverse polarity is very unlikely. I have a 10uf electrolytic at home but it’s 63v, so a little large. I’ll have a look in Graz on Monday and see if I can’t find something smaller. I’ll post another picture when I get it installed.
