    sound module
    Hi I’m now on with hms Brinton , coastal mine hunter my last ship in RN. Does anyone have a
    sound module
    that’s is programmable so I can put on the Napier Deltic , or does anyone know how to build in the sound please. They’re too expensive on line and the Deltic one they’re selling sounds nothing like the real thing. Happy New Year all by the way. Back sailing soon as stitches healed and I can bend. Nobby

    All hooked up, nowt happens...
    Sounds good to me Selwyn πŸ‘ That board is a sensible (essential) idea in that setup. Stops a stronger battery trying to charge the weaker one.πŸ‘ I have several Action Electronics modules as well (duplicated some 😁) They're good, well made stuff. Anyway, your brushless ESCs will 'see' 12V so setting them up as running on NiMh should do the trick. if you set them up as 'LiPo' they might think it is a 3S 11.1V battery and try to let the volts go down to 9V before cutting off!! Not good for the SLAs 😑 IF they assume it is a 4S 14.8V Lipo they will cut off at 4x3.0 i.e. 12V which will drastically shorten your run time; you'd have to keep the SLAs near fully charged (13.6V) all the time. Bon chance mon ami, let us know how it goes. All the best, Doug 😎

    Steam whistle sound with smoke
    Just pondering how one would set up and sincrconize a simulated steam whistle. Since I’m not running on steam I could use smoke from my smoke unit and of course a steam
    sound module
    . Any ideas as how To do this? My thought was using the RAM ship whistle which works with a micro switch. One servo would control both the whistle and at the same time release squeezing off neoprene tubing would allow smoke to issue out the whistle. Anyone thoughts on this would be appreciated.

    Exciters/transducers
    Hi Neil (or Neville?), There are two issues with using four. 1) Since these 4 Ohm transducers work by bringing the surface they are mounted on to move like a speaker cone, there may be no advantage. in fact two on the same surface may create waves through the hull side that partially cancel each other and thus reduce the volume. True, they may sometimes combine as well. This effect will happen in specific frequency ranges depending on the stiffness of the hull. Put one each side on the largest open area available as we discussed for the tug. Cheaper anyway πŸ˜‰ 2) Speaker impedance and the minimum that the amplifier can handle. Check the Digisound specs Output Impedance to see if the amp can handle 4 Ohms or only 8 Ohms, which is the case for all
    sound module
    s I have seen or used. As with your tug, two x 4 Ohm transducers in series gives 8 Ohms for max volume from an 8 Ohm amp output. Four in series would give 16 Ohms which would significantly reduce the volume produced. Two x 4 Ohms in parallel though only presents 2 Ohms to the amp, which highly likely will blow the output transistors 😑 All four in parallel would be only 1 Ohm which would most definitely produce the 'magic smoke' 😭 Don't forget to put a little enclosure around the back of the transducer after it's stuck to the hull. Cheers, Doug 😎 PS What 'Oldest First' button? I don't see one. if you are using the dumbphone App I can't help you. I DON'T!

    HMS HOOD by Trumpeter
    Yes I was that person with the transducer( amongst others). I originally had a speaker inside the lower superstructure of the tug, where there are window openings, but without any glazing, so in theory the sound should have been able to escape. The engine sounds were OK but the other sounds, on a different
    sound module
    , were only audible if the model was more or less within arms length, which I thought unsatisfactory! Aha I thought, use a transducer attached under the deck, other people seem to get satisfactory results. I didn't. I think that there is too much clutter on the deck of the Southampton,which is not that big, preventing the hull from doing what it is supposed to do. Next idea is to conceal a normal speaker on the deck disguised as a pile of pallets, with lots of lovely gaps to let the sound out. Chris

    Steam sound unit (variable speed)
    What I don't like about the 'Noisy Thing' is that apparently the engine sound stops for as long as you use any other sound; e.g. fog horn, ship's bell etc, so called 'General Sounds' in the Action description, if you use it in so called 'Throttle Mode', i.e. engine sound coupled to speed. In that case you may as well use a Switch module to connect the 'General Sounds' on separate modules to an amplifier with mixer inputs. The
    sound module
    s I found here (Germany) don't have this disadvantage. They have at least two output channels enabling a minimum of two simultaneous sounds. Specific sounds can also be coupled to switched outputs; e.g. to move cranes, gun turrets, or switch lights etc whenever that corresponding sound is actuated. Specific sequences of various sounds can be pre-programmed and initiated with one command using only one sound channel. Attached are extracts from the manual of a module from Neuhaus Electronics showing how to synchronise real engine sounds to the throttle. Needs a bit of PC work but no rocket science πŸ˜‰ and the sounds are then linked to the throttle stick position. Send me a PM and I can send you details including source and operating manual. The Graupner module is very similar but I haven't experimented with it yet. Cheers Doug 😎

They take their control signal directly from the RX ESC channel and have a socket on board to connect the ESC, whoever's it is πŸ‘πŸ˜‰ The sound is however synthesised to enable this. Dave's Action Noisy Thing is obviously the better choice than the Micro modules bur of course more elaborate and thus more expensive. Seems to be very similar to what I found here in Germany.

Was a home made PCB about 4" square! Nowadays one mini module will do all that and much more; Plug and Play, plus you can load your own sound files from the PC, but is that so satisfying??

    My tug has 2 motors and an Action Electronics P40 mixer. I have been looking at the Technobots Combo Engine
    sound module
    but was wondering if this would cause any problems as I assume from the Technobots site that the module would normally have to fit between receiver and the ESC, but with the P40 mixer in situ would I have to connect from the mixer to the ECS instead,or from the receiver to the mixer? I was going to ask on the Technobots forum but after registering I was unable to find a way of posting a message. Probably a bit too dim for them ! The way I see it, one of 2 things will happen, if connected between receiver and mixer the
    sound module
    will behave as though there was only one motor, whereas connecting between the mixer and one of the ESCs the sound will only reflect what is happening to that particular motor. I have no problems with either of these situations, although I think option 1 is better, but what I am concerned about is that one of the options may be so wrong something fails, and all I have ended up with is a smoke generator!

    well .. I do not use practically the rudder, because in this configuration on my model is practically ineffective, even though is still working on can 4 - Rudder. Due to difficulties in setting internal mixer of the transmitter for 2 motors, I chose an external V-tail mixer; it struck me as easier to adjust.I had always had constant problems with the engines, it turned out at the end that it was defective ESC on one of the two engines.I had to buy two new esc, but from a different manufacturer. The system then worked ok, so I did not need to change the settings.

    Hi Tomarack - yes I suggested that option of connecting a mixer in my first post on 28th July and I think it's a good one as a human is involved in the mixing scheme rather than some pre-determined mathematics which may not suit everyone or may not cope with unforseen conditions. But it does cost a spare channel - so it's down to individual preference

    Cormorant - I'm not in my own back yard here, but v-tail mixers for elevons mix the elevator channel with the aileron channel. So I assume you would need to use those same (aircraft) sticks on the TX - unless like Haverlock you have a Taranis! This puts control solely on the RH stick (assuming a mode 2 TX). Marine modellers like to have the throttle on the left stick. I wouldn't be happy with the throttle elsewhere than on the LH stick from the point of view of failsafe. Aircraft have so much space and height around them that in tempoary loss of signal the safest option is to keep flying as you were so the non-throttle channels stay at their last setting until signal is re-established - so if you are using an aircraft non-throttle channel for your boat-throttle in order to take advantage of the TX's inbuilt mixing, then in the event of signal loss you may find yourself heading out of the lake and into the carpark. The (aircraft) throttle channel differs in that you can usually program it to take up a user defined position in event of signal loss.

    your rudder needs to be fed as does your second ESC so you need a "y" lead to connect both your ESC and your rudder servo to the same output. if you want to have control on one stick you could use a elevon mix ( elevator/aileron ( see page 12 of instructions)) then you could leave your rudder on its own channel.

    Thanks for that, it seems a mixer is the best way forward. Couple of points:- 1.I assume I can use one stick for this operation. The rudder and elevator are on different sticks - rudder and throttle are on the same. 2. Not having used a mixer before, where does the Y lead fit in?

    If you wish to use a Spektrum DX6i then I can only offer the idea to use the "v tail " mix and connect your 2 ESCs to receiver outputs for rudder and elevator. You can take a "y" lead connection to the rudder servo. The reason I said the taranis is that its a completely open ended TX so you can mix anything with anything and have logical switches as well.

    Hello Alan Permission to join this forum? Octman and I are old school friends and have been modelling on and off for 50 years. He and I have been trying, in vain so far, to use the mixer on my Spektrum DX6i. I am building an Aeronaut Pilot Boat which has twin brushed motors, which I would like to control with one stick and use the motors to assist turning at low speeds. The Spektrum instructions, which leave much to be desired and the many youtube videos, deal solely with aircraft, so I am struggling. Unless there is anyone out there that has programmed a DX6ifor this purpose, the description of your rudder mixer seems to be the ideal solution?

    Agreed! - if you have a number of models requiring mixing, the additional cost of a Taranis over a more humble TX (mixer per model) will soon pay for itself as you can implement free mixers in all of them. But not everyone can cope with programming high end TXs. For some I know, just binding a receiver is an ordeal - yet these same guys can tackle the most intricate detailing on their models whereas I use Flora tubs for the cabins and toilet rolls for the funnels! We're all wired up differently but the great joy of a club is there is usually someone who can help you out with any skills you are lacking.
