SLA question by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Hi Colin, Get well soon! So that you may be able to go sailing. This coming Summer! Cheers, Ed

SLA question by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Hi J.Barry, I run SLA's in my tugboats! Yes, you can put them in any position! They are sealed and there's no liquid in them. The batteries are sealed electrolyte-tight, immune against installation attitude they are solid! Cheers, Ed

Smoke generator by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 17 days ago
Hi Dick, It's a small smoker. So, I figure it probably smokes for about 45-1 hour! The one I have. smokes for 3 hours. On one fill of smoker liquid! But maybe you can call Cornwall Model Boats. And ask some questions! 01840 211009 Cornwall Model Boats Ltd Unit 3B, Highfield Rd Ind Est, Camelford, Cornwall, PL32 9RA, United Kingdom. Cheers, Ed
