TeleGPS sled setup
Attach the Battery
If you are using a maximum width () battery you will only use a single verticle cable tie as the sides of the sled will laterally secure the battery. If you are using a smaller width battery you should use at least two cable ties, or ideally three. Ideally the vertical cable tie should be applied first, followed by the horizontal cable tie(s). A piece of double stick tape between the battery and sled provides extra insurance. Always be sure to properly secure any connections between the battery and tracker so they are supported during flight and recovery.
Secure your TeleGPS
Secure your TeleGPS using 1/4 inch long 4-40 screws. Care should be taken that no metallic screws used result in a short. The choice of this mounting hardware is the responsibility of, and at the discretion of, the user. Be sure that the battery retention cable ties are pulled tight, so they do not exert excess pressure on the underside of the board.
Securing the Antenna
Once your TeleGPS is in place, thread a cable tie through the holes flanking the antenna brace and secure. This provides extra support for your antenna, and takes some of the load off the TeleGPS board. Note: this sled is designed for the stock wire antenna, and will require substantial modification for a different antenna option. Such modifications render any Guarantees void.
Mounting your sled
The base of your sled contains a nut capture designed to accommodate a 1/4-20 nylon lock nut. There are myriad ways to exploit this for mounting, and we provide multiple accessories to make this as easy and space efficient as possible.
