Mr F...Thanks again, lots of good info there and I've saved it for reference.

Hi Dicky, good to see you are making progress on your latest build... I'm watching :-))

 I could be misunderstanding the ACTion P79 instructons and I have a 6v 4.5amp SLA (bought today from the local Maplins...on offer at the moment..6) but it says not to use a 6v SLA or 5 cell pack, photo of the relevent part below I hope...I intended to use a separate 4 cell Ni-mi for the RX...? i have the necessary cells/charger so it would be straightforward.

I have tested all the radio gear...ESC etc and it works fine..no problems...

Have i got it wrong..? :embarrassed:

Dave is very insistent on the point that his products are intended for 4 cells of NiMH and that's it, but low drop out BECs work very well with 6volt SLAs and supply the correct voltage.

Ah! I see...I can make my own BEC and run the RX off the SLA then...I like it...I have done some electronic assembly in the past so no problem, just need the right circuit etc..  :-))

I'm back, re-incarnated as JaB not jb thanks to Martin :-))

Broke my mayhem login a while ago, started suffering with my spine had to shelve the corvette, had a major op a few months ago, spinal fusion, cage at the front of spine 4 bolts and 2 rods at the back. piece of new bone in the rotten disc... titanium bolts were 500 apeice!

going away for a week in the lakes soon, i need a rest! keep falling asleep in the daytime.

If all goes well i'll get back on the revell after, with any luck we might even see it on the water :embarrassed:

Been doing a bit on the corvette, over 5 years since i last touched it, got all the electrics back in and it works ok, i used to be good at soldering but yesterday it took me four attempts to solder the connectors on the battery wires, used (wasted) all the gold 4mm ones i had  :embarrassed: twit.

I need to connect the rudder servo to the tiller arm...should i use brass rod or piano wire? i have both in my stash, can't remember what i've used before..memory's  going south i think. not easy picking up after a long lay-off :-X

Ta for any advice.
