    Hi Peter,
    Another little brain wave.
    Just convert a servo to continually rotate and and set the pot to the midpoint
    You then have a forward and reverse motor/ gearbox.
    I think that might also work.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Good idea. I have some old servos. I will look into this. Thanks Martin.

    Hi Peter,
    I have just had another thought.
    Maybe you could use striped down servos!
    I don't know what motors you will be using but the PCB from the servos might do the job.

    Hi Martin.
    Your solution is very useful. The DΓΌsseldorf does have a lot of available space to add these servos. If there is no suitable module, I will use this. I will need to build three so you can see why a small module would be a little easier. Thanks for the solution. I have a way forwards. I will be back to you later about how to best cut plasticardπŸ˜€

    Hi Mouldbuilder,
    I don't know if this is of any use to you but this is the only forward/reverse method that I know

    Martin.

    I am seeking some help with the electrical setup for my new Dusseldorf project. The model, when completed, will use 15 channels to operate fully. I am using a Frsky Taranis Plus transmitter with the x8r receiver. I have purchased two frsky sbus 4 channel decoders which will give me the required channels. I have most things covered, I think, but am a little stuck on what module I will need to make the small geared motors work in forward and reverse on one channel. I have a lot of the Turnigy rc switches to operate most of the functions but these will not give forward and reverse options.
    I have been thinking that I should have the main items such as rudder, throttle and lights etc operating through sbus on channels one to eight and the more difficult functions, such as the crane lift and lower and the anchor up and down, directly through the receiver on channels nine to 16. I think my problem with the lift and lower (reversing motor direction) might be solved this way by using the on off on switches, several of which are on the transmitter. I would love to hear what those who have experience of multiple channel usage think and possibly if there is a module that I could connect through sbus to give the forward and reverse option I seek.
    Thanks.
    Peter.
