FrSky Receiver size, and X9D Pot repair.

A comparison of assorted receiver sizes. I thought the Hitec was small, but damn….rcvr compare angle rcvr compare top1 x6r coin

 

A combination of bad soldering joints, and my opening the case too much and disturbing wires resulted in failure of the aileron  pot wires.  The pics show overwicking of solder on the red wire (indicated by the kink), which made it very inflexible. Upon opening  the dust cover, I also found the brown wire detached.  Last pic shows the repair.
