I have a resolution to the Planet "replacement" problem.   :-))

As stated previously the "new" Planet is totally useless, having only two stick movements, and both in directions I cannot use.

The model shop I bought it from online, together with three extra receivers, have vey kindly agreed to refund me in full when the repackaged box returns to them.  Very nice of them, as essentially is was my fault for not looking at the photo more carefully (two trim tabs missing).

So I went down to my usual local model shop is discuss a suitable replacement, and look at it carefully.

The recommended replacement for the Planet T5 is the Radiolink T8FB, imported by J Perkins who used to import the Planet.  Same price at the sub-spec Plant, as are the receivers.  I also bought 3 Rx's, which are more compact than the "new" Planet.

Two full axis sticks, four movements.  8 channel

for full info:

I shall first convert one of my boats and do a full practical evaluation.
More news later  O0

Making the carry and display box for the Clyde and made a box for the mast section to keep it safe. bit more detail to the mast section. excuse the hammer handle just there to keep it upright till I set the Clyde to water line level and it will have sea effect round the ship.
hoping to get some wiring done soon so I can test her in the water.

We are selling shed loads of these 2+2s. They are a very good marine set, if you consider it an upgrade from a 2 channel set. The extra functions include a 3 position, not 2 position switch,  for channel 3, very useful. Plus a proportional dial for the fourth channel.
Also both main throttle and rudder switches have dual rate functions. This is very handy with a sail winch on the up/down function for example.
Another improvement not mentioned in the text, is the lower hinge point on the tx aerial, a very serious weak point on the old Planet 5 and 7 sets, causing many failures. With this lower hinge point being protected by the handle, less chance of it being sheared off! I know this cos my current T5 has the aerial hanging off. My last one had a steel pin VERY carefully inserted through the pivot point, and I am about to remove the external aerial completely and re-insert it inside the set, for use with one of my RC tanks. Range not being such an issue.
Having spoken to J Perking, the importers, when these sets were first being spoken off, they were squarely aimed at surface modellers. So far being very popular amongst boaty types, RC crawler fans ( Muddy people one and all! ), plus the bigger gauge railway boys.
So, all in all a decent piece of kit aimed at us, not the flyers. That alone is something to applaud. Also, loads of room to rip out the standard electrical switches and chuck in bespoke stuff, but that's just me :}

If I were you I'd start with the 40mm one. You might even find that a 3-blade 37-40mm bronze prop would be better, but that's best left until the 'fine tuning' stage.
