Hi everyone

Could someone with a Cheetah Bug joystick please take some photos of the insides for me?

I've just picked one up that's been butchered and I'm not sure how the autofire circuit board is supposed to be wired up. The rest is obvious!

Cheers,

Dave

Thanks, that's just what I was after :D

One quick question... is the black wire looped round all of the switches and then to the autofire PCB?

Cheers,

Dave

Mods, this thread can now be closed.

I managed to rebuild my nice green Cheetah Bug and it works a treat, even the autofire works!

Thanks again for the photos :)

Just wanted to say thank you for the pictures. I've got a Cheetah The Bug where the micro breakers were malfunctioning. Turned out it was dirt, so I cleaned the surfaces with alcohol and they work like brand new again. But then I discovered that the black wire on the auto fire PCB was disconnected. Lucky me, these pictures helped me figure out where it was supposed to be soldered. Thanks!
