Modifying Cortex Partner Joystick Cable for V5


#1

Since We’ve been waiting for VEX to ship wires since September we’ve been debating on when to switch back to cortex…I then I noticed that the Cortex Partner Joystick Cable for Cortex has the same connectors but one end is backwards. Is it legal to crimp a new connector the same way the V5 Smart Cable is arranged? Will it work with the V5 Components?

The V5 wires won’t work with the legacy components.

And for crimping wire, you must use the VEX provided V5 wire for V5 components, and this is indicated by a vex v5 brand on the cable.
