Fast electric rc transmitters by boaty Admiral   Posted: 7 days ago
Just got a new Proboat Sonicwake .The e.s.c and brushless motor look very good but the STX2 TX appears to be a bit cheap . Not sailed it as yet but changed over to the Futaba T2HR system as I had already done on my Blackjack 29. I prefer the stick to the wheel and the Blackjack runs very well on the Futaba T2HR and has the steering adjuster on top right of the TX case. Has anyone else used the Futaba set in place of the one that comes with the boat.😁 Boaty

If the battery was along side the motor you could wrap some fleece fabric over both and use the heat from the motor(s) to keep the battery warm.👍😊

Actually I am more concerned about how to keep the Transmitter dry in misty wet weather than warming my hands. Sometimes here in Canada we can be sailing our boats when a sudden squall will pop up. How to keep my transmitter dry under those conditions is my main concern. In Canada we have hand warmers to put in our gloves that work very well. Shrug off the coldest days with these "pocket furnaces." Slip warmers into gloves, pockets, hard hats or between layers of clothing. Shake to use, air-activated. Heats up to 55°C (130°F). Safe, odorless and disposable. Heats up to 10 hours.

If it's really cold you can add the "tyre warmers" available from Hobbyking

Same here. I made a nice warm cosy out of a yard of leatherette - see below: Beats everything the wind and rain can throw at it...

Many years ago I used to do a lot of glider slope soaring. Standing on top of a hill on a windy day in the winter soon numbs the hands. I solved the problem by using an old tea cosy with a hole in the top. If the was rain around then a plastic bag was used over the top of the cosy. Alan

HI Ron, I have a similar one, very useful in the colder months, stops the wind on your hands. As a by product it keeps the transmitter batteries warmer, so they last longer, got to workout how to keep my motor battery warm to get longer sailing times!!!

Is there a way to...? by Haverlock Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
the short answer is YES! however it may be a little more difficult than your willing to undertake I guess you want to allow some one to select full throttle but have limited speed. Depending on your transmitter you may be able to have dual rates on throttle. if not read this article its a walk through on retro fitting dual rates on throttle. style='background-color:yellow;'>transmitter/

Paddle Steamer For Sale by Doug79 Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Colin Thank you for your inquiry. I live in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, I am looking for £200 o.n.o It is a great model. You would need your own receiver and transmitter. The other parts are all there but would need checking over before sailing.

Hobby King receiver clones by Bryan-the-pirate Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Colin I operate all the frequency ranges you mention. In the old 27 Mhz any 27Mhz crystal set work providing the receiver is on the same frequency. The same is true for 40 Mhz each channel will transmit to any receiver within range but you can't put a 27 into a 40 or visa versa. I tend to use half channels as these days I am unlikely to meet anyone using them. Ebay is a very good source of crystals. The 2.4 gig system work by binding with a receiver and will only obey a signal sent for it. Just like the old game Simon says if that transmitter hasn't given the command the receiver will not obey. I hope that helps Bryan

Mcgregor 1990s transmitter/receiver by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I know what you mean, i have altered my Mcgregor TX to Futaba, the receiver was gutted and a Futaba RX hidden inside!!! this was for use on some 60's models so it looked the part, modern internals with a retro outer case

Mcgregor 1990s transmitter/receiver by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Thanks Mike, just got one for my grandson to use with his tug, he's only 4 but really enjoys trying to manoeuver his barges, and getting quite good at it. Cheers Colin.

Mcgregor 1990s transmitter/receiver by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Looks perfect Mike, no programming, uncomplicated to use for the littlun, and at that price what have you got to lose? Don't dump the 35Meg set, you never know when you might need it! Like me and my Sanwa 35Meg set, 30 odd years old and still works fine so I keep it as backup for my Catalina. It's great that your getting your grandson started, we're gonna need replacements for the Old Codger Guard some time, and that includes me😉🤓 All the best, Doug 😎
