Skycontroller 2 aftermarket charger

Post by Reddai » 04 May 2019, 18:54

Hi Guys,
I just got a 2nd hand Parrot Disco FPV on ebay.
The problem I have is that the "nice" (so to speak) company that sold me the package, forgot to put in the box the skycontroller 2 charging cable... I have opened a case on ebay but while I'm waiting I would like to start using my new toy!
I found in my garage a power adapter that would plug into the controller... but I have no idea of the tension and the polarity I shoud use...
I would'nt adopt the "plug and try" strategy because I don't know if the skycontroller 2 as a polarity protection....

Is there anyone willing to help me out ?
Attached you will find a picture of the power adapter I found
many thanks in advance!

SC's only need a raw 12 volt supply. The actual charging circuit is built in, so a lot of us use 3rd party chargers. Set your charger for 12 vdc, center positive, and be sure to select the correct size adapter. Simple as that. :)
