Revolution Eyes

Is there any chance someone has mapped the eye circuit of the Revolution loaders? I have a board and motor, but instead of tracking down a set of revvy eyes, I would like to just make a set. I have an emitter/detector set from Radio Shack. The eye connector for the revvy has 3 wires on it. There are 4 total leads for the emitter/ detector set. Is a resistor necessary? Do both anodes get power from the same wire, and the cathodes each get a wire lead?

Cool idea, I wish I knew for sure. If the parts aren't too spendy, you could always try out your ideas. Seems like the way to go for making a motorized pocket hopper! (Is that what you're building?)

I'm sure you could splice the 'black'(I'm assuming here) wire down to one. I know they do this on some markers. For instance in the Dye markers, one side has a white wire, the other has a red, but both have a black. The black wire is spliced down to one wire before getting to the board.

Well it's 3 or 4 bucks for a package with a 3mm emitter and a receiver LEDs. Im not building a pocket revvy. Just a regular revvy. I have the shells, board, and motor, just no eye board. I have been in a hardcore tinkering mood lately. The eyes I had went to turning a VL Force (constant run) into an xboard VL eye force (which feeds pretty quick now too).

I thought about running the power to both LEDs from one wire then the opposing leads would go to the respective pins, but I could really use a schematic or something for that.

I forgot I had another revvy. Since it was a mess, I tore it apart and cleaned it. While it was apart, I took a good look at the eye board and drew it out. All good now.
