Flight Deck sensor/transmitter coded?(5 posts)

Flight Deck sensor/transmitter coded?TFerguson

Does anybody know if the cordless Flight Deck transmitters are in any way coded to the receiver bracket? I lost my transmitter and hope to pick one up cheaper than the whole kit.

TIA,
Terry

Quality Bike Products has the wireless sensor listed as an available small part. QBP part number is CY6562. I'd guess an LBS would charge about $10.00 for that part.

It doesn't make any sense to me to code individual units because the transmitter range is so short that you'd never get interference from another unit. In fact, I suspect that's why they are built with such low power.

I'm a believer in installing computer sensors on the front of the fork. That way, if the sensor gets knocked into the spokes for any reason, the motion of the wheel will push it away rather than pull it into the spokes and rip it off.
Thanks.... It was off the front of the fork.....TFerguson

but the magnet turned around and the screw side ripped it right off of the mountin strap. It was in a crit last weekend. I hear ping, ping, ping, PONG and I see it bouncing down the road. Looked after the race but couldn't find it. Thanks again,

They may not be individually coded, but I have tried to use Specialized and Ciclosport transmitters with the flight deck and it would not work.
