powering a Tiger
« on: June 04, 2013, 09:47:20 pm »

Collecting bits and pieces for the new/rebuild of my 1/96 HMS Tiger, it ran with monoperms (the small ones with a reversing lever 6 volt) want to run at 12 volt this time, would 380 x4 be adequate or not? if not what suggestions.

four times RE385 or similar will result in less of a speedboat effect at full power.

Thanks for the reply, nearly cost me a new keyboard though, just taken a mouthful of tea when I read it. {-)
