I'm probably missing something obvious, but it isn't clear to me how the ribbon connector connects to the F16-V2 controller. The connector does not appear to be keyed and it seems to fit in either configuration.


Is there any documentation on the expansion board> I didn't get anything with the delivery.


Thanks

The side with the red wire goes to the left on both boards.

I'm not familiar with that board but in almost all cases with ribbon cable the pins have a marking for the number one pin position. Install your Ribbon cable with the striped side towards the number one pin on both boards being connected.

For future reference, the manual for is located here:

See section 3.2.3 for how the ribbon cable is connected.
