I agree Neil😉 The Turnigy is a good set and the RX nice and compact and light. Cheers Doug 😎

MFA TORPEDO 500 / BATTERY INFO by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi al, this is the sort of thing we mean - style='background-color:yellow;'>turnigy-180a-watt-meter-and-power-analyzer.html Not too expensive but can save a lot of expensive mistakes and misery! Used for checking before you get on the water as well as for testing batteries on charge and discharge. Cheers Doug 😎

3 x Brushless Motor control? by tomarack Commander   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi, as I wrote,I have no experience with Action Electronics products. Regarding the use of internal mixers in HKT6A , these did not suit for this case,neither Turnigy TGY9X.There is always one main signal as control and the other one(or more) as a signal dependent. I needed to mix two independent signals and that is why I chose an external simple mixer! To Dave M .. excuse me -I have no experience with brushless motors but in this case I do not know why it could not work. It is a mix of two control signals only ...What's the problem with that, if I use brushless motors?

FLYSKY FS-I6S TRANSMITTER by canabus Captain   Posted: 12 days ago
Hi All The Flysky and Hobbyking Turnigy IA6 are the same beast. The plug on the back is for both trainer link and software update via special cable. The only problem is the manual does not tell you to hold down the cancel button for about 5 seconds to save your settings. Also you can get telemetry sensors for temperature, voltage and rpm from the receiver back to the transmitter. Canabus

Hobby Engine Richardson Upgrade by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 14 days ago
Crack on Man👍 Know what you mean about many deliveries. I've become friends with our DHL driver, we meet almost every second day. I order 6 items and the daft supplier sends 'em in anything from 1 to 6 deliveries! The GF is getting jealous😉 Glad to see you got the Turnigy i6👍 The RX is nice and compact isn't it! Have you thought of a build sequence for the 'special FX' yet? Cheers Doug 😎

Hobby Engine 'Richardson' Tug Upgrade by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 14 days ago
Hi Neil, so far so good👍 My version is the Southampton, same hull and deck, including well hidden screws😡 but the older 40Mhz version without any special effects. So my answer to the 'Why change its' and 'It won't fits' is - If HobbyKing can do it why can't I? - and better! For a decent and inexpensive 6ch T/RX set I can from personal experience recommend the Turnigy HT-6 or TGY i6 or similar from HobbyKing for around 45-50 dollars 42 pounds from UK or EU warehouse. style='background-color:yellow;'>turnigy-tgy-i6-afhds-transmitter-and-6ch-receiver-mode-2.html Very versatile and easy to program, i.e. kill all the aircraft and heli widgets🤔 This set (and similar) was discussed in depth elsewhere here on the site. Look under 'Tank steering' ! Happy fiddling, Doug 😎

Model German docks from Krick, ABS hull, superstructure plywood, model is illuminated with reflector, position lights and mast, drive DC motor MIG 500 Boat 12V, controller 45A Turnigy bidirectional, LiPol battery 7.4 V 4000mA.

Crash Tender Shaft Tube Poistion by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Aye aye sir! Message received and understood! 👍 Go with what you have first. Don't look bad, but you have a pretty big boat there! One thing; NiCad 😡 that's a No No these days, at least swap it for a NiMh. For such a big boat and thirsty motor I would probably go for at least a 5000mAh. Aboat that size can surely carry it. Otherwise you could try a lightweight LiPo 2S = 7.4V. IF the ESC is declared as 'LiPo safe', then it shuts down when the cell voltage reaches the minimum, usually set 3.0 or 3.2 volts. A decent modern 2.4Gig RC set (e.g the Turnigy i6) will tell you the battery voltage by telemetry back to the TX display! 😉 If you ain't happy with the performance an upgrade may well cost you a candlelight dinner .... on top of the 80 quid! 😲😉😉 Let us know how it goes (the boat I mean 😁) Cheers Doug 😎

what motor by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
OK. So it's 4" smaller than the Sea Scout I am currently renovating and upgrading from a 50ies Taycol motor to brushless! So keep the 'stuf' lightweight. When I asked the same question for the Sea Scout a few months ago I got the following advice from Canabus, who seems to have considerable experience in this field 👍 "All from Hobbyking. Motor propdrive V2 2830- 1000kv 370watts 3.175mm shaft(9190000328-0)3S or 4S lipo battery. ESC 30A car(HK-30A)( XT60 connectors required), program card (HKPROG-CARD)can be used on the larger ones in the series. Lipo battery Turnigy 1000mah 3S 30C (T1000.3s.20) 89grams 75 x 33 x 19mm or a Turnigy 1500mah 3S 25C (T1500.3S.25) 113 grams 80 x 34 x 25 mm both have XT60 connectors. Prop about a 2 blade 30mm 1.4 pitch" I actually opted for a 3 blade prop and a 3S 3000mAh I already had, but bought the ESC and motor recommended and am now fitting them cos it made sense, was not expensive and came pretty quick - make sure it comes from the UK or EU warehouse to avoid possible import tax from Hong Kong or USA !!! This would be more than adequate to give your boat some Oomph! It needs more than my cabin Cruiser! For the RC buy a complete set already matched and 'bound' so you have the minimum of fiddling about as a rookie😉 I can thoroughly recommend the Turnigy HT6, AKA TGY-I6 , ~US$45 also from Hobby King. In a couple of hours one evening I could programme two models into it and get it to do what I wanted instead of what the factory thought we would want for plane or chopper! Instructions are quite clear, logical and lead you through step by step. It comes with a 68 page manual! But much you can skip if you don't intend to go flying with your boat! Attached is a pic from my manual with German branding (REELY)! But it's the same beast as the TGY-I6, second pic!! The whole package should cost around a 100quid and you're RTR! The RC set has 6 channels so you have lots of scope later for special functions; fire monitors, lights, horn, motor noise etc etc 👍 By the way; the motor comes with 3.5mm bullet connectors, and of course I only had 4mm 'other halves' but you can also get connectors, loose or fitted to cables and adapters at Hobby King. (You can solder them on with your 4lb hatchet!!!) Hope this helps, Cheers Doug 😎 PS don't forget a suitable coupling to match the 3.17mm motor shaft to your prop shaft (whatever that is, 4mm?)

Programmable Tx by NickW Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Doug after the problems with the electrics that you helped me with I moved entirely over to Turnigy, bought the programmable Tx, spent a lot of time 'in conference' with the tech guys at HobbyKing, so i'm now confident I have a great set up. The only thing letting me down were the instructions how to set up the Tx. I'd have been better off using the instructions for my electric kettle!!!! Until I found the 'how to' uploads on YouTube.....i'm now cooking with gas and the future is orange :-) have a good weekend my friend and happy boating Nick
