    Hi Davidm3. Had a rummage through the spares box and replace the RX control box completely and put in a brushed speed controller.
    Managed to fit in a 1500ma 3sel battery. Runs ok on the bench and in my fish pond it will be given a real test tomorrow at our club pond.
    Stay safe you lot. Jim.

    have a look on AliExpress they sell the tx and spares for the FT 009, we at the Sheffield ship model society have a few of us that meet 2 to 3 times a week to race them, most fun we've had for ages. still don't know what the protocol is tho but they are cheap enough to replace the parts. just had a look and they have changed the radio to a new version cost around ยฃ33 for tx/rx combo good luck

    Just recently, one of our NTMS members son saw someone throw a Lionel model train box in the dumpster. He dived, and found a complete set with engine, 4 cars, track and transformer!!!๐Ÿ˜Ž

    My buddy JP was at a meeting of the Richardson RC club, the same club and field I flew at for years. Once in a while they have a mini swap meet after the meeting. He came home with a new, or near new Laser sailboat with transmitter and all for 15.00๐Ÿ˜€

    You just hav to attend a lot of sales, with an open mind & an open wallet. I once picked up a large (30"+) plastic twin with plastic gearbox for $5, researched her once i arrived at home 300km away, it was almost $300 in a hobbyshop. If you see something you must buy it, these opportunities seldom come along. You can always resell within your club circle if you regret your impulsivity.
