Chris I was refering to the sound unit, it looks very big, or is it the camera perspective?


HI Bob its just how big the picture has made it as its a new sound unit from components shop an its only about 3inches by 2inches so not big at all an it sounds great hope you are gettin on ok with your carrier ?

Hi Chris
Coming along , looking good. Question the water intakes look like your planning on cooling some big heat load ?


HI Dave yea the water intakes are for the ESC  FUSHION power AN it goes up to 280 amps  as i will be running four motors to drive tiger  so it  might get hot hence the water intakes but now i dont know if i will use this type of ESC as im still confused about this BEC on a ESC


an  in my R/C INSTRUCTIONS it says the R/X has a BEC CONFIGERATION fitted in it but one german gent says the R/X  FROM THE GERMAN  TRANSLATION has not got a BEC   in so at the moment im still confused about all this all the guys on here treid to help me BLESS THEM but im now waiting till my freind comes over an we can talk it through on whitch way to go
all best

Hi Chris,
Your receiver, definitely DOES NOT have a BEC fitted...


On the lighter side of life... it's nice of you to think I'm a German Gent...  but spent close on 20 years working for the British government, and for the past 20 years for the German government...
Still have my British passport, just been renewed  ok2

HI Colin many thanks for that bit of info i know you said it before but in the english instrucktions it says battery eliminator is installed in the receiver circutry so are they sayin this is a BEC  in the R/X  an they have made a mistake THOUGH  ?
CHEERS

Chris it says in the germa instructions basically, the rx has no power and recives it from the electronic of the bec system from esc, to prove it I disconnected my esc and guess what no power to rx.
