Well had another go today and am pleased to say all is working as it should.part of the problem was that the new motor was sticking.

, and not turning prop making me think the problem was the transmitter set up,Thanks for your input guys.Its a british waterways tug I,m building.I bought the hull off Ebay the rest is built from plasticard.I,ll try to post a pic when finished.

Cheers Neil

Hi there people

does anyone know of any literature or notes on setting up this transmitter for boats.I,m used to the old 27mh sets .i have the instruction book but it makes no sense.Its based more on remote car operation.As do most of these type car or plane.getting to the stage where i,m going to go back to the old type sets.i,m in a club but work at sea so rarely get time to attend anything to ask advice.So i,m hoping you guys can come up with something.Thanks in advance.

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.
