Altitude encoder to a good home

Post by Timothy » Tue Oct 18, 2022 7:11 pm

My AK-350 altitude encoder kept dropping to zero then returning.

I eventually gave up and fitted a new one.

I have now opened up the old one and there is evidence of a powder, which may be corrosion or spillage, around the feet of the output transistor and maybe one of the ICs.

I don't have the inclination to fiddle with it, but I would say that there is a PROB50 that it is fully recoverable.

So, if anyone wants an altitude encoder, has a bit of time and energy and the skills, let me know and I'll post it off to you.

Has to be better than just binning it.
