Mtronics W-tail marine mixer connections. by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 days ago
Thanks Doug, So right for the job, but so expensive, I am trying to use what I have or can get cheaply. As you know I am rubbish with electronics. This is for my latest aquisition, a vintage model paddle Steamer with individual paddle motors and a rudder. The old system of a digimax 4 needs updating. How's the taycol coming on, my first big show is at Easter and I was hoping to include the Sea Commander. Cheers Colin.

Help with vintage rc. by DodgyGeezer Commander   Posted: 9 days ago
I think the Digimax had interchangeable crystals - but didn't it also have 4-wire servos? If so, you will need a full Digimax set.... In general, it is not a good idea to use Vintage equipment unless you know what you are doing. The kit will be old, could need maintenance or repair (which may not be easy to source) and will have less range, reliability and interference rejection capability than modern sets. It will be 27Mhz. You may have to repair the electronics yourself. If you source a transmitter which SHOULD work with it, but doesn't, you will need expert attention to determine what is wrong - again, this will be hard to find. I assume that you do not know if that receiver works at the moment.... Running vintage radios is rather like running vintage cars. They look great when they are operating properly, but need a lot of work to maintain, and do not perform as well as modern kit. One source of help might be the Single Channel and Vintage RC group here - . They have specialists in old equipment...

Help with vintage rc. by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 days ago
Hi there fellow boaters, I have just acquired a vintage model fitted with a futaba digimax 4 reciever. What is the chance of it working with any other type of transmitter, or do I need to buy a vintage digimax 4 transmitter. Does it have interchangeable crystals. I could change all the electrics but would prefer to keep it original. Any help would be appreciated, thanks Colin.

"Elke" by commodore Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 years ago
Hi! Alan I built an Elke In January 1974 for my son. We sailed It together for a couple of years and then he lost Interest (girls!) It spent the next forty five years In my loft (The model - not my son) until l resurected It a few years ago and, after a bit of a dusting and a spot of glue, relaunched It. It still had the original McGregor Digimax radio and speed controller fitted which, after renewing the batteries In both the receiver and tranny, still works a treat. I've since added a crew and some other refinements and It's often Included In our Club displays. Hope you get as much enjoyment from your model as we have.
