    Hi Phil
    Re your less
    I have used these a lot on models
    I use 2 1.5v AA batteries that means you can use them without resistors job done

    Regards
    Dave

    Hi
    A few years ago I bought the S100 kit from an engineering show at Alexander palace
    It's a very good kit a thought that I would put 3 shafts in it as per the original
    I planned to use a speed 400 for centering shaft and two out runners on the other shafts
    But found that the speed 400 gave me all the speed you would ever need

    I hope you do finish it as it will fly and look good on water

    Hi re the winch
    You should look at the model cars set
    they do 1.10th scale working winches which just plug into the receiver
    Hope this is usefull.

    I ordered 2 props with Westbourne on the
    5th Jan and they took a visa payment on the 11th Jan for them

    After many calls to them with no result
    I finally received them on the 30th March
    I do not think I will ever use them again

    I ordered some props from Westbourne in January and they still have not turned up
    when I got thro to them after a week of trying there excuse was that they had moved
    and this was the reason for no being able to get thro to them

    Like somemore model boaters who have been charged for the items they do not have in stock

    If I finally get my gear I will not use them again
