I didn't say both, I said ONE !!

Have you had a look at the drawings,both motors have been changed one at a time and did make no differance to the rotation on foward or reverse,i have just been and run the motors as they,forward movement is correct i do beleive starboard side clockwise port side anti-clockwise in reverse both the motors go clockwise,if i go and change the wires on one of the motors the forward motors both go clockwise and in reverse rotate as the should in reverse rotation,now i have tried this test on both motors and did make no differance at all,i have also tried to change the rudder to another channel but i think it will only operate on channel 2

hi
 
I think we have over-looked the simple solution that Uncle Albert  might have done and that is to swap the motor wires over at the terminal blocks on the fuse board - %)leaving the motor wires soldered in place is a lot easier I think than getting the soldering iron out. :-))


aye

Hi Colin looking at the photo you do not have the rudder servo plugged into the p94, can you confirm if you have ...........or is it plugged into the receiver, if it is plugged into the receiver this is in correct as it should be plugged into the p94 as  shown in the diagram.

Regards Dave.

hi i think itís time now for Uncle Albert  to box the p94 up and send it back to Dave - for the boss to have a look at the unit.  Dave will decide it is at fault or whatever.   By the time we have spent waffling on  {-)- on here Dave could have had it sorted and Uncle Albert could have been sailing. :-))

Send it back to Dave Colin, he's already said he'd fix it if it is the problem.

In the time we have spent wafflling on about this Dave could have fixed it and sent it back to you.

Further to this tale, this customer eventually sent back his P94. It arrived at 12.40pm yesterday. I tested it and found that the fault was due to a fatally damaged microprocessor. The only way this damage could have occurred was either incorrect connection to the receiver or excess voltage from the receiver. Both of these are considered to be 'user' issues and thus would preclude the unit from free repair under the terms of our warranty. However for various reasons we don't consider it worth our while to pursue payment from this person. The microprocessor was replaced, the unit was re-tested and subsequently returned to him by First Class post at 1515 hrs yesterday afternoon.
