Still have to consider weight of paint

this is common. when i was last injured in a non fault car crash 5 years ago, i went back to the doctors when this offer was made. i asked 1 question. with the whiplash and shoulder injury i received,was i cured? he answered if course not. he issued me with a note to pass onto the insurers,  stating that in the short term the initial injury was not healed, but no more could be done physically. it was a further 4 years before i could say it was fully cured, and that i could actually sleep on my back. they do this to stop further clai.s down the line, as all injuries take a lit of time to heal properly

It's doing what a servo is supposed to do on a switched channel.  With the switch in one position, a signal is generated to tell servo to take up a corresponding position.  When the switch is operated, it generates a new signal to cause the servo to move to the other position.

Hi Pete,
I think the brass fitting on the end of the v8ht transmitter module will be an RP SMA Female (oddly the brass fitting with the pin in the centre)

The overlap was sanded back all round leaving a nicely planked deck. Then the rear hatch was assembled and sanded to fit.

Next the cabin locking rails were fitted. These have a pre-cut hole and the instructions require you to drill through this to the underlying hull box side with a 5mm bit to take a locking pin. I found this quite a faff (technical term) as there wasnít enough clearance to get a 5mm bit into the pilot hole at right angles to the surface. I had to drill a pilot hole with a pin drill and expand it to size with a round file. Pieces of 5mm dowel were fitted in the holes to act as locking pins.

The cabin frame was assembled and the locking plates glued to the bottom rail. The cabin was fitted to the hull and the front windows added.

Tamiya used to market a combined ESC /Receiver  with a small servo attached for their 1/10 cars . Snag is they are 27mhz which can sometimes be a problem depending on your location. Would seem to be a Futaba product made for Tamiya . Work equally well with Hitec or Futaba transmitter or the Tamiya one of course - take up to 7.2v which would suit a small 2 cell Lipo - not sure how they would run on a single cell. I have three of these combos which still work very well after 30 years - possibly they make an up to date 2.4 Mhz version ? - or there have been sets for sale on E bay from time to time (fairly recently). Run two servo type motors easily - more than enough power for the Vosper..........There was also a high powered version by Futaba for a motorcycle using Mosfets , allowed up to 20amps - but as with motorcycles no reverse..............Works well but a bit of a pain when stuck somewhere after a lapse of attention...............
