This manual does als apply to the TBS CROSSFIRE module

What you need:

Removing the display

As a few of the connection points are located under the lcd-display you need to remove it.

The easiest way to do this is by powering up the modul (by usb or in your goggles) and let it run for about a minute till everything is warmed up. Nor you should be able to gently remove the display and flip it over
