    Thanks Chris

    I was reading up about brushed motors the other day in a magazine. I think Iโ€™m going to have too โ€œbrush backโ€ up on my electrical circuit knowledge as well.

    If only I listened a bit more intently in school physics lessons 50 years ago ๐Ÿ‘

    Thanks for all the links Ron

    That should keep me occupied for a while and will dovetail nicely with all the other suggestions made

    Thanks Chris for the reply. I will have to follow that route I think.

    No particular model in mind as I think I need to understand the basics first and then dive in

    Iโ€™ve been looking around for a book that explains how to set up RC systems in a model boats including motors , rudder systems etc. I can find books from twenty plus years ago which are now rather dated (good for their time) but nothing on the latest methods and tech? There have been some good articles in the magazine but they do seem to presume a certain level of knowledge is already held.

    When I say book I mean and need something a Golden Labrador could read and understand until I build up my knowledge. I will learn very quickly but I just need the basics for now
    Thanks
