    Hi Joburg,
    Nice town, long time since I was there, '87 😲 bet it's changed a bit!
    A Great Aunt of mine used to live there then.

    Re viewing pics; are you using a PC / laptop or a so-called Smartphone or tablet?
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Launch day has come and gone. Overall I was very pleased with the way she looked on the water, but may I apologise for the quality of the video.
    First off, I was unable to get 1/200 scale dragonflies or a moorhen, which somewhat detracted from the realism, but most importantly, my ace photographer Octman was unable to make it.
    I promise to do better next time.
    I also learned that this is primarily a display model and it is so easy to damage or bend the many tiny parts.
    However, she has given me much pleasure both on the slipway and her short time on the water.

    Well that's something then, Doug. Any ideas why it won't bind? Could it be that trainer switch as suggested by somebody on here?

    Evenink Martin,
    Sounds like the old 'shaggy dog story' of the US sending the Russians a drill bit the diameter of a human hair, to show their engineering supremacy!
    The Russians supposedly sent it back with a hole drilled in it 😲😁

    BTW: first result with your TX!
    I knocked up a simple diode RF detector, connected to Dad's vintage AVO Minor (2.5mA range) and your TX is certainly transmitting SOMETHING!
    Now to try and find out WHAT πŸ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug 😎
