    I am back again! still having problems!
    I have been able to connect the blue flashing light and allocate it to a switch via a Krick Ro8220 binker unit!!!!
    I then wired the running lights together and tried to allocate a switch so I could turn them on and off at will, the allocation was successful (tried the flashing light which works) but will not turn the running lights off or on, tried them on the channel and switch for flashing lights but still wont work( they work if I connect them directly to a battery).
    Have tried every combination of 2 & 3 wires without success! any ideas?????

    sorting out and checking wiring, so far so good! put boat in water today to check for leaks( and basic driving and turning) pool 8M*4M, not big enough as boat goes "mas rapido". found I had 12mm water in hull, fortunately not affecting electrics, My own silly fault, did not make sure water inlet pipe for pump was above water level! now letting it dry out but thinks that is the only water ingress!
    next stage RADIO SETTINGS but will do 1 at a time, Garage now warm enough to work in without gloves.

    have been moving forward slowly from restarting from scratch, reading manuals and have changed the speech on transmitter to english( the controls have been changed some time ago).It is saying " receiver voltage" on the transmitter it is showing 2.7v, I have then checked the voltage going into the receiver (trying several cables and even plugged power supply directly avoiding the switch)and is 6.5v so is it a faulty receiver or the transmitter?

    Jonathan,
    Just heard I can get my cable from my postbox Monday so will be able to sort the wiring, trying to work out wiring plan (see photo), what do you think?
    In case I get fed up have ordered a Tamiya Konghead 6x6 car kit from cornwall so I can relax a bit, have plenty of areas to play with it( due wednesday)!

    Jonathan,
    I have just sent a message to Robbe modellsport (Graupner agents for europe )via their website, explaining the problems and included the comment about the translation of the manual, also asked for an email address so I can send a copy of the wiring diagram for them to look at

    Jonathan,
    regarding previous entry about graupner 3970,emailed Krick and just received a reply"With the module from Graunper you can switch a consumer on and off. The module is connected directly to the receiver and is not available. An alternative from us would be the Uno switch article number 67201 from us."
    looked at comparision and found" the 8249 is designed to be used with the robbe/Futaba Multi switch"(see photos).am now wondering if I used wrong units (used them as recommended in build instructions and wiring plan)?
    Regarding brainwave started transmitter and very quickly wished I had not as could not find switch settings"NOT A HAPPY CHAPPIE"😭😭😭😭
    Am wondering if I was to reduce the number of channels, by putting all lighting together and removing the servos for the vertical movements of the monitors, would it make it easier? but it still means setting the transmitter up!
    Because of the hassle, I am seriously considering having a break from the Dusseldorf and making another model before having another go

    I have been checking and cofimed all wiring is correct and no sign or smell of cooking except for the common earth, which have to sort). unable to upgrade wire to swg22 as our village is in lockdown,we can go anywhere in arboleas but not to ALBOX 7km(where my mail is delivered) away as is outside provence unless I try to play hide and seek with the guarda! I have found 1 servo,pump as well as the 8249 reversing module no longer work and will have to replace!
    question, is the graupner3970 Switching module multi-function SXH the same as the ro8249reversing module f. multiswitch? if so might go that way and decide and order the next model i want to cut down delivery charges
    Might have had a brain wave regarding switches after reading notes several times, could it be that you select the channel the drag it down to the apropriate switch and "set"it?
