Dunno , but mine ended up that shape after it took a roll. It still is that shape so don't worry too much it will work fine when I finish all my MODIFICATIONS -AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAArrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh - and find the bits I took off.

THAT WORD !!!!! What a Face


BTW If it is a bit crooked I wouldn't suggest you try to bend it straight as it could cause a stress fracture of one of the two joins.

Intersting response from John Boyes at Track Shack regarding r/c upgrades ...

" we don't supply R/C upgrade kits, but you will find everything you need at www.brianjones.free-online.co.uk including good advice!

The R/C Edrigs we supply from Accucrfat are just fitted with the one servo on the forward/reverse steam valve, this controls both direction and speed. I would suggest you have a chat with Brian Jones (he is well known in the hobby) and probably consider getting a 3 channel set to cover reversing & regulator & whistle, or possibly even go to 2.4Ghz"

I was interested that the installed r/c on Accucraft was single channel and costs a wapping 180 extra. Glad I didn't go that route.

Keep you posted on Brian Jones - has anyone else used him ???

I wonder if the frequencies allocated to RC for non aircraft are the same in UK and France

Thanks Clive

I was just about to post a question on just that subject.

Having downloaded Brian Jones guide to r/c control, my big question was can I use full range 2.4 Ghz in France.

But that looks as though it's no problem.

How things have progressed in r/c since my model aircraft days !!!

OK you were all listening to the Goon Show on your cats whisker radio sets while reading the Beano and building Meccano Models.

Don't ask me how I know ?
