Riverman Caldercraft Tug
« on: June 15, 2008, 05:23:19 PM »

 I have to ask a question which may sound a bit sill, Can anyone tell me, can yu use futaba plugs into an Acoms RX?

I just bought the caldercraft riverman and it has acoms gear, and i want a new electric speed control, but i am stuggling as I am new to the hobbie.
I have a monoperm motor  which has 6V max 3A written on it 2 ch acoms rx / tx and a rechargeable FIAMM GS lead acid 6V 4.5Ah written on it.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Yes you can But you must file down the futaba plug just to get rid of the futaba lead in

Found this: Servo Chart. -
http://www.fatlion.com/sailplanes/servos.html




A simple speed controller will do:
P79 CONDOR 10/2 AUTOSET - 27.00 (P79S 30.00 - http://www.action-electronics.co.uk/speed.php
Mtronics Viper 10 or 15 - http://www.mtroniks.co.uk/

.... was this the Riverman that was on ebay last week?
         I had a bid on that

For Airtronics(USA) read SANWA. That might be an older chart Martin I believe Sanwa may have changed or are about to change to a more normal +/- layout.

Martin,
Yes it was on ebay, I like the kit it needs a bit of work to be honest, And i have a rented flat and no tools so not sure what to do right now,
I want a tug to do towing with, I have a big maritime heritage, my father does work for Lloyds of London and is a pilot, so I want to start towing and need a good tug, Not sure this is the right one!

I have two tugs that are surplus to requirements, and will be sold to finance radio and ESC's for new builds.
One is a smaller single screw with kort nozzle, bow thruster and working winch.
Other is a Smit Rotterdam thats just had her motors and rudders replaced.

Will post in 'Sales' section if required Martin?
