Smoke unit spotted on ebay
« on: August 01, 2012, 07:41:43 PM »

spotted this on ebay worth the money and i think and free postage.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Model-Boat-Smoke-Generator-12-Volts-/160856329597?pt=UK_ToysGames_RadioControlled_JN&hash=item2573c8cd7d
i have just bought one i like the idea of only using 12v for the battery supply.
i have one of the 24v ones and it works great in my large tug (plenty room for the 2 12v battery's).but most of my other boats are smaller so needed a single 12v unit.
if it works as good as the 24v unit i will be very happy.

When you get it could you do a video of how much smoke it makes? I prefer the oil burning smoke units, the smoke looks better to me than the water ones.
