Hi Mike
Cant find the paperwork at the moment, mind you the instructions were rubbish and the drawings weren't much better.
I can however give you a link to my build on Mayhem.
You will need to register and log in to see the photos.
Hope this helps

Hi Robin
I dont know about the fail safe as I tend to use the speed controllers with a fail safe built in, ie no signal, no throttle.
The Planet 5 LED screen is for the voltage of the Tx batteries.
 You can use rechargeable batteries.
Why would you want to programme for multiple models when all you need is a receiver in each one bound to the Tx ?

The Planet 5 R/C does a conversion kit for a couple of quid to convert the ratchet stick to a sprung loaded stick. The servo reverse switches are easier to operate too.
I have the Planet 5 and the Giant Cod and the Planet 5 is more user friendly.

You use wire cutters for ballast, bit expensive isn't it ?

Thankyou Colin.

Hi Andy if you need some encouragement with giving up smoking this might help.
Edit: It should happen automatically if you press Return after pasting it in.

I think it is a bit dangerous to tell Leslie to start changing motors etc. when we dont know what sort of setup he has in the boat and we dont even know what boat he has.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
