    πŸ“ Best Tx systems for boats
    4 years ago by Sparkman ( Petty Officer 2nd Class)
    Flag
    I started out with a futaba transmitter ,then when I got more boats found that I needed another ,big mistake for me ,a transmitter with multi model memory is a must , some of the cheaper models for less than Β£50 are adequate ,although they are for aircraft ,I just ignore most features , the turnigy one from hobbyking at Β£45.13 p is ideal and receivers are reasonable too . Get the right mode , .it has the usual things you may need ,end point adjustment ,travel ,reverse etc .

    Yes it's bolted down . it's unistrut welded together ,and trolley with castors running in groove .cost about Β£110 to do it yourself .( perhaps I should patent it ) might try electric winch later
