    Roy, I think we spoke about the process of making this kit before, didn't we?
    There was something about compromising the accuracy for the benefit of transporting the model.

    Its an odd build, I met the salesman for Robbe who had the first Valdivia with him and he let me run her. It was at the Dortmund exhibition, my German was a little better then!

    I sort of interviewed him for an article for International Boat modeler magazine prior to the build review of model.
    He was the one who suggested the model was done by Robbe as he had been aboard for a while and had loads of photos.
    One of the things was, I asked him how he moved the model around. He said that as the masts dropped down it would all fit into his Clio car!

    Was that OK as a reminisce Andy?

    Dear, Colin.
    Firstly, thank you for those words of wisdom, secondly I'd love to show the photos of the set up but since it's Valdivia, everything is hidden by the deck. That's one of the odd things Robbe did. To mount everything on the underside of the deck is borderline insane.

    When I put all the pieces together and inside I'll attempt to make a video. Can't however guarantee you'll see everything clearly enoughπŸ˜”

    Photos of your setup would have helped a great deal, and still would be very interesting.
    Cheers Colin.

    I'm sorry dear builders but, as much I enjoy reminiscing old times and appreciating the good old quality (unlike these days), I have to share my great joy. The set up is finally working properly, not even a tiniest noise. Red wired separatedπŸ‘
    Huge thanks to all of you for helping me navigate this journey through my discovery of ESC machinationsπŸ˜€

    Well, we learn throughout our lives and still die stupid.
    Let's then reduce our ignorance more and more every day, shall we?

    Just a quick word, my speed controller gives out 6V through bec but in spite of that I had problem with the receiver before removing red wire. Very odd

    Hi Colin, the Fleet Tx's are lovely to look at just like the brushed alluminium Futaba M3 Tx.
    Beautiful piece of design and so nicely balanced.
    I have a Futaba 27Mhtz FM 4 ch set as well as 3 off 6ch Micron 27,FM rx.s. Terry used to do kits so these were all home built and worked straight away, needed no tuning.

    I also built his very nice 6ch Tx with a centre loaded aerial, got a small fault on it at the moment but as I have all the circuit drawings I can fix it myself. Way back in the days of 16 pin (DILIC) chips and transistors.
    Micron now specialize in RC for model railways.

    You can't poke a boat with 2.4Ghtz!

    I do enjoy looking at the vintage stuff especially electric motors. I was up at the Warwick boat show some years ago and there was an old bang bang system connected to a Graupner Kinematic electric motor driver.

    I picked up the Tx. and started running it very much to the surprise of the guy minding. I think it was a chap called Needham.
    I had one as well in the past, mine was bought in Germany in 1958 used it then but proportional came along.
    So it was not in use but I took it to work to show to a colleague and overnight someone stole it!
    It could only have been our security guards!

    Roy, still have my FLEET SYSTEMS setup complete in original box from 1972. Transmitter, reciever and 4 servos.
    Good solid bit of kit that still works, now only used for display at vintage shows.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    With Doug's remark, 'call me Fleet'. Triggered off a thought about Fleet and Sanwa radio control equipment.
    They have non-standard servo wiring as the red and black wires are swapped over.
    I forgot that once before and wrote off a Fleet Rx.
    If you swap them over everything works OK.
    regards
    Roy
