Action units revived
« on: June 01, 2020, 09:31:28 pm »

Can you help me please .


Over the years of making model boats I have amassed a plethora of ACTION UNITS of just about every type , and was wandering If Dave could advise me please :-)) [size=78%] [/size]


As he will know I set my trust in Dave when I came back into modelling and found him a very reliable source of honest information , hence my trust .
I have now successfully built and own 7 models and sold one....... as it was to much for my arthritic back
During this period I had one turn turtle and sink due to using a cut price RX bargain :(( [/size][size=78%] but as luck would have it I was covered by home insurance so was able to make a claim and with the proceeds bought a MMM tug which gives me great fun but as my back gets worse I was looking to build something smaller , then remembered I had been given two years ago  a Vac mould hull and Kort drive + shaft + prop for an off shore trawler , and after lining this hull with resin / mesh to beef it up I was looking for something better to build and finally ended up with deciding to build a replica of an RN university Training Patrol Boat ....P292 HMS Charger ...to be exact [/size]


From My sloop chest I decided to use my surplus ACTION units which I had accumulated over the years .


THE PROBLEM .

I have an ACTION 775 motor [ not sure if its a 5500 or 1200 rev ] and a P80 ESC and a P93 v 3 dual ESC and I am not sure if I can use either to run a single motor without having to purchase yet another ESC CAN YOU PLEASE ADVISE ME .....ASAP

All me other ACTION units are ready and awaiting to be rejoined but pending this answer I am in a quandary {:-{

As an after thought I meant  to ask if a P100 Noisy thing could be reprogrammed by Component Shop as my computer is Apple and the disc /lead purchased many moons ago is window based ?
I realise that this would be chargeable but if it could be done then that would join its family of ACTION units alone side its amplifier .....can this be done please

I don't think that this is appropriate for an open forum, Ivor.  If you want advice then your first recourse is to Component-Shop, the current manfacturers and distributors of ACTion units. There are contact details on their website. If they are unable to answer your questions then they may pass them on to me.
