pm8 virtue redefined question

i am going to order a virtue redefined board for my pm8, and im wondering if u still need the eye adapter for the redefined board, or was it just for the old virtue board?

in the pictures it look like it is a connector for both wired and ribbon eyes.

the redefined board i just ordered last month (for dm6-10, and pm8) has both slots on the board for wired and ribbon eyes.

I bought one for a pm8 as well. Works pretty good I think it makes the batteries last longer cause it pulses the less instead of being always on.

worth the $52 in my opinion.

just reccieved the virtue redefined board for my pm8, the contact for the ribbon eyes only has 3 slots, the original board has 4. and it's to small to connect the ribbon eyes in it.

what am i doing wrong?

I just looked at mine and you are correct the connecting ports are NOT the same.

I think alot of us use wired eyes so we just assumed the ribbon port would work.

I think you have 2 options:

1. Buy an adapter to change your ribbon eyes to fit into the wired slot.

2. "Upgrade" your eyes to wired eyes and painstakingly fit them into the pm8. Ive done it but its a PITA

I ran into the same problem with the redefined board. Someone here used to make thin wire eyes, others used a Dremel to make a wire groove in the body which I don't recommend. I ended up using the stock board as I couldn't find a proper adaptor that works.

I use plain ol stock DM wires that come in the medium kit.


you can use a set of lines man pliers to flatten the cable and then a narrow flathead to stuff them next to the Solenoid.


However I got really tired of having to do this every time so I got a dremel and used the sanding attachment.

If you have faith in your self then do it. there is nothing that seals where you will be sanding.

But my pm8 body had already been milled on so i didnt care anymore about it being unmodified.

Old thread but good answer:

Contact VirtuePB. They still have them, just isn't on their site.

"DM6/7/8 Board to Rail/PM7/8 Ultralight Frame Adapter - Note: This is necessary for using a Board in a Rail/PM7 Ultralight Frame. Also requires a DM6/7 board (sold seperately)."
