Precise, clear instructions! Thank you for that Andy.


I suppose it doesn't become evident until you make the set up connections, which I haven't up to this point.

Very glad you understood because explaining isn't my strong point  {-)

Hi Andy


Good plan with the P40 I think. I've taken a similar approach but am using tx mixing to get same result. I think its going help reduce the banking seen on a lot of the 1/10 aquarama builds, we shall see.


Have a good trip.
David.

Counting down now  :-)  This time next week I'll be back  :}


I'm surprised that after 12 days away my finger tips are still healing from modelling abuse, ought to be like brand new for a while at least  {-)
It's too early to start buying anything yet but midweek I'm going go order an etched parts bending tool, most likely one by Trumpeter mid sized. There are quite a few to choose from but I doubt I'll ever need a big one and I'm not paying £75 plus for something made in China even if the brand claim made in USA  %%

Hi David
This is same brand but a different model to Stans.
It has four working faces and you rotate the one most appropriate to the front.
These do not get discounted and this is the best price I can find.
There are copies on Banggood but they look like they are cast and plated rather than cnc machined.
Stans 8Ē is over £80 delivered
The 5.5 is not far behind at 72.95 plus P&P 4.95
If I did battleships like Stan I may have spent more money for the longer models

Morning Andy


Just posted something here as your thread is falling off the forum list...


You've been back a week... Wondering if you've lost the boat...?


 ;)

Good morning David.
It's a case of you've got to do what you feel like doing when you feel like doing it  O0


I was torn between groundhog day or continuing with an old flame on the arrival of these



Gives you a while to catch up  :-)

Hi All


A question on the P40E after setting up and with every thing in neutral, if I apply just left or right rudder I find a motor will start which one depends on which way I move the rudder stick. If I apply throttle forward or reverse then apply rudder then I get the desired effect of inboard motor slowing down.


Mode is throttle left stick. Any help appreciated.

I donít know Mike but that would be useful for parking the stern end against the dock by blipping the rudder.
A question for component shop

Thanks for your answer Andy.
I did ask, but was told the code has never changed and has always been like that.
Something that I thought was just not right.
Oh well onwards

I can only think that applying rudder without throttle has little to no effect so it's perhaps programmed to apply a little throttle autonomously
