    Thanks for reply Guys, the boat was pre owned and would only go forwards I thought it was a car esc but I did manage to get to reverse, but reverse doesn't work well i.e. its intermittent, although its usually enough to get me out of the weeds ๐Ÿ˜Š. Looking at what I can see online docs it doesnt show a brake function, maybe I just have to live with this ?

    Hi Guys, I need some tech support. I have this speed controller in my fairey huntsman, and it works quite good however I have a problem with reverse. For e.g. I cannot go from full forward to full reverse also reverse only initiates intermittently, forward is always fine. I know the Receiver and transmitter are fine, i use them in other boats no probs, im thinking it maybe a parameter in the speed controller, any tips greatly received Thanks Dave ๐Ÿ‘

    HI thanks for reply, I think you're right but worth a try. Graupner couldn't help.
    But yeah maybe a bush could work, I'm reluctant to change shafts as they look about right

    HI John 1/24 for the Elco PT Boat.

    I dont think they are correct for the Later Perkasa torps.
    check out my site www.perkasa.co.uk by the way ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Im sure you could make these just patience and a steady hand.
    They are just brass nuts polished round in the drill, then hacksaw cuts to solder the small brass strip

    HI John,
    Thanks for the compliment Im glad if it was of any use to you.
    There is an article on the nmm Perkasa, but Im sure you spotted it.
    You could try contact Les Brown through the link on my site I think he bought the nmm kit.
    I like wood and brass myself ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Good luck, it would be great to hear how you get on,

    HI Please have a look at my website www.perkasa.co.uk you can try les Brown via small warships group, he has some. I believe the makers of the Precedent kit will also supply a copy.

    Hi, this is my Ebay Crash Tender restoration project stripped ready for re-build.

    It is an original kit but needs a lot of work as you can see (some times I think it would be asier to start again - but good fun).

    I'm not sure how old it is exactly, it cost me ยฃ50 from ebay. Hopefully it will be ready for next summer.

    It will be electric powered, probably by a graupner speed 600 single screw.
