How to protect Realacc RX5808 screen?
#1
I recently cracked my Realacc RX5808 screen and bought a replacement screen. The screen is very fragile at the lower corners and in my case, every other line on the screen disappeared when it cracked. 
So do anyone have a good tip on how to protect the glass from not cracking again? I was thinking about using some hot glue as support, but it could be a bit tricky to get the glue in between the glass and the print card

You can try using "iphone" screen protectors Smile Might even help it from scratches... I guess the trick there is to spread the pressure when something is in contact with the screen, so using multiple layers might even be better!

The problem with these screens is the overhanging glass plate at the bottom corners. they are very thin and doesn't have any support underneath. I had my module in my pocket while testing the nextwave, and when I took it out, one of the corners where shattered. It looks like La Forge has fixed this by putting a thin metal plate protector around the screen so you can't apply pressure to the glass at the corners.

I filled the gap between the glass and the print card with some hot glue so we'll just see how that holds up

I have my RX5808 installed in my HD3's with the supplied cover.  I remove the antennas every time I put the goggles away.  Cant say I've had any issues or concerns about the screen being damaged.  Not sure it's really an issue?  Don't see why you would remove the module once it's installed but the hot glue sounds like a good idea if you really do have to keep installing/removing the module for some strange reason.

There is a lot of firmware development on rc groups for the rx5808, so every time I want to flash a new firmware, I have to remove my module. I don't use any doors or anything in front of the module since they tend to break off the latches on the cover

Fair enough, are the firmware developments really worth keeping up with that regularly?  Plugged mine in when I got it, has been fine, no real need to update it from my perspective unless I'll suddenly get +20% range.  I actually think there's an update for mine to add more channels but I really don't need them so haven't bothered yet - in fact completely forgot about it until now.  Probably should do that sometime!

They are quite interesting and offers easier ways to operate the unit. On one of them you don't need too look at the module to change channels and bands. The developer also states it has better filters for switching so the image is maybe better, but the range should be the same. But since my screen cracked, and every other line on the display was not working, I went back to the laforge fw1. 6 because I wasn't familiar with the other fw, and it wasn't so easy to read the small text on the ruined screen.

If you bought the module some time ago, it could be worth updating to the latest firmware as it fixed some channels being wrong.

I try different fw to check out the latest and greatest, but I don't think it is worth trying for people that just wants something that works
