Is there really any need?
« on: January 25, 2017, 06:06:15 PM »

These from a German Facebook page, dunno why you would need this many variable channels (although I could find a use for 4!)

Somebody must have a really good memory! %%
All those sticks and no labels.  Although, if you needed to read the labels, it would probably be too late by the time you found the one you wanted.

Wiring all those up the respective transmitter thingies would be a skilled job.

This is Martin Holst's, Denmark, set up, sixteen channels.
He is running large scale trawlers and is controlling net drums, line winches, and trawl doors.
That is about five channels right there, add ESC, Rudder and bow thruster that comes to eight.

I think he also controls pumps for the load tanks maybe one or two channels...

I think he has a plan.  %)

Martin's boats are incredible , if he can get a crane to work he will let alone the winches , net drums and as Umi says pumps to control water into ballast tanks to simulate a pelagic trawler taking fish aboard. They tow scale nets in the shallow bays near his home and I've seen photos of nets with a few kgs of shrimps or small fish in them !!
