    Nerys sounds like such a wonderful person and her memory will certainly be remembered especially in this forum. I know lots of members will find it difficult to posts to this sad news but I know they will all have fond memories of her contributions to this site and she will never be forgotten.
    Condolences from a complete stranger who was touched by a lovely human being.

    Now that I've ventured into the world of RC as part of my Sea Urchin build I've reached the point of installing the motor for the prop, so the question is why is there a brushed and brushless version of motors and what ESC and battery are needed? I was given the brushless motor with the kit but no other electrics.
