Please fix it! I would love to mod a X2R with with a Triplestack variant.

I already ordered the X2R TripleStack board but I haven’t gotten around to assembling it. I can do some testing on it if it’s helpful. It’s the least I can do to support your work.

Check your board, there might not be anything wrong with it. So far just one reported problem

What should signs of a problem should we look for? A quick visual check shows that spacing between the pads shouldn’t be an issue, but it’s difficult to tell what’s going on with the traces that aren’t exposed.

I aslo checked the normal 17mm Triplestack base boards I ordered by accident and I may have found a problem with them. One of the three boards I ordered has an electrical connection between the center hole a smaller hole close to it. None of the others have it, so I think it could be an issue.

What 6mm springs do you use for the tripledown rev2 17mm?

Patiently waiting for packages from China.

Coftheconsumer, can you recheck those boards? One of those pinholes does need to have a connection to the center/springpad legs, but it’s not the one you circled.

I built a d80 with triple stack driver this week. I finished today and was excited as I took some extra time with this one. It was working great this afternoon and I decided to rest and then put it through the normal tests to check for runtime and heat and such. So I entered programming mode to disable thermal stepdown. I waited for option number seven. Then clicked within the first second to disable TS. Well after doing that, it went to low mode and stayed there. Now it’s stuck on low without the ability to reenter programming mode.

So I think I might have bricked the firmware:(
The driver and driver cavity are fully potted as well. Anyone have any ideas?

I’d say post something in the firmware thread. This one doesn’t get much traffic

Ya. I’m thinking there’s not much I can do but dig it out and try reflashing it. Thanks:)

@PD

Is the firmware you linked in the OP working correctly? I think I remember you mentioning somewhere that something isn’t working the way it should (was it LVP?)?

I’m basically searching for a 3-channel clicky firmware that features a turbo timer…
