Hi there. Im new to these forums, despite being a regular reader of the site for the last few years *sorry* and ive got a few questions, seeing as u guys here seem to know what yr talking about I bought one of those Akasa FC-01 controllers a while back and its turned out to be a hunk of junk. One channel has gone down, altho its still recieving around 10-11v cos the full power LED is still on. Damn surface mounted components means i havent a hope in hell of fixing it - unless anyone here knows what might be wrong I basically just wired up 2 evercool 8cm fans and a few days later it was toast. What i really wanna do is fix up my own controller as i have the soldering/wiring skills (just not any FC knowledge). Ive been eyeing up the Bit Tech 'rheo baybus u cant overload' as a potential, but its lowest setting of 1.25v is a bit of a worry for me - id prefer at least 5-6v lowest setting. Ive broken apart a zalman fanmate controller (the design is dead simple) and have thought about building 4 or 5 in parallel to act as a FC - can anyone recommend or shoot down this idea? I guess im just loathe to spend 25-30 quid on a shop bought one that could be built for under £10 Plus its good to have the bragging rights, yeah Hope someone can help, or maybe even reccommend another design i could use.... Laters.
