    It would be a waste of time calling me, even on blue lights and two tones it would take me at least 1 day and you would have very little left

    Hi Len.
    My intention, so far, is to use LiPo batteries to save space. I will use fairly large capacity units. I will probably use 7.4 volts for the equipment with suitable voltage regulation. The motors will run on 11.1 volts and the receiver feed via the BEC on the ESC. This is my plan at the moment. My wiring will be far away from that diagram supplied by Krick. If you hear of a large fire in Hungary, I probably got it wrong.
    Peter.

    I cannot promise to finish one project before starting another. I know, I tried.

    Hi Len.
    After inspection of my crane I have found that I did not glue it together, just friction fitted. I will add a brass section to raise the height of the crane and replace the lifting rope. I am a lucky (or just lazy for not having glued it) boy.😁
    Peter.

    I should have no problem with that method Colin. Most of my railings collapse on their own anyway.😁

    ColΓ­n,
    That is an interesting thought, might have to move the bollard further back! Hope Peter reads this.
    However for me until I understand and learn about how graupner multiswitch system works, I have disconnected both the anchor and hoist ( even though they are wired and could work),sorted some of the lighting am using an 8 channel receiver!

    Good morning Len, looking at your dinghy problem, I worked on acanal maintenence boat a few years ago and it had a collapsible section of guard rail to allow the dinghy to be launched and retrieved.
    Cheers Colin.

    Peter,
    Have looked and tried, amount of lift is very little, I considered removing railing back to pillar near hoist but dinghy fouled up with bollard! Also tried smaller dinghy but did not look right good luck, will be watching with interest.
    In the process of hiding loose wires by zip ties and sticky tie clips under the deck, and wondering if battery(no 285) is needed as battery ( no 289) should be sufficient with a spur off to feed receiver?

    Lucky me. It is only pushed together so far. I can add a lift piece. Thanks for the warning.

    Well spotted Len. I can now see why this could never work. I will try to do a modification to the upper railing to see if the dingy will raise over the lower railing. If it will, I will add a chain. I think it is too late to modify the crane but I will look closely at it. I do not want to spoil the crane as built.
    Peter.
