Anyone local to me?
« on: October 17, 2020, 07:57:52 AM »

Hi all, I need a hand in getting my tug setup. I bought it ready built and fitted my reciever and it all lights up
But for the life of me I canít get it running. Is there anybody close to Epsom Surrey who could take a look and tell me where Iím going wrong?


Regards




Darren

Port & Starboard - ESC ( 5 & 6 )  Electronic speed Controllers.  Mtronics

Forward - Another ESC, probably for bow thruster. Micro gyros.

Starboard Bow - Radio receiver ( Rx ) Frsky?  probably 2.4Ghz

Do the motors 'twitch' or 'play tunes' when you switch on?

 Can you post a pic of your transmitter?

I know it will be a bit irritating, but list what is working / what isn't!
 It'll help you.... us define the problem.

eg:

CH 1 - Rudder - Good, L/R OK
CH 2 - Starboard Motor -
CH 3 - Port         Motor -
CH 4 - Bow Thruster     -
