Hey guys. I am looking for the little tiny plugs that fit the two prong plug for the gun flash and one other plug. I will need 4 of them form the two tanks. Any idea where i can get them? This would be for pin locations J1 and J3

I think you can order them from Clark when you order the boards. Should have couple to spare, but not 4..........

Didn't know that I had to order them when I ordered the boards. Was under the impression that all needed plugs came with.  I will buy what ever you have spare.

Al, I will see what I have in the spare bin......... Also, if you upgrade to high intensity flash unit then you don't need to use the little connector for the flash. The only one you really need is for the IR.

The high intensity flash is a great deal, they're like $11 or something and really SNAP, it'll light up a dark room with gun flash. 

I have a mix of LED's and the high-capacity and really, either is fine.

Those tiny JST plugs are a pain, I really could never figure out who uses what standard plug and I wish ordering them in bulk was easier. Clark did, or used to.. supply a couple of those cables with each board, IR and Muzzle Flash, I have a couple laying around for future projects :\

Clark actually never supplied them Curtis use to add them in as his value added re-seller.

I took care of Al from my stash. I order them in batches e-bay... Can never have too many plugs and wires... :-)

Especially when we accidentally let the magic smoke out.

I am going to try 5A first but I have the feeling that will blow under load so it will probably be a 10A Michael has been playing with them and I'm sure will throw his 2 cents in too...

I have blown 3A under normal test runs, but if you are doing work on the electronics I would use 3A just to be more sensitive and conservative.

I think 5A is good for everyday use but if the tank is running fine and you have a heavy load then go with 10A.
