Hi Bob , The revs were all over the place , did not respond to the stick sometimes , the motors ran at different speeds to each other they were wired to a Y lead into 1 channel of the receiver , i tried everything but nothing worked so ended up sending back . They were cheaper than the Perkins ones but looked identical , anyway i got 2 more Perkins ones and they were fine .

Take Care Bob

Best Regards Dave

Thread: JJC units
26/01/2020 12:16:24

The overhauling issue was in my opinion more a problem with the JCC separate amplifier and not so much the master unit , the amplifiers were rubbish , i ended up using a 40 watt Maplin 12v amplifier which sounded great but my batteries hated it LOL

I see , your sort Kip

Hello Kip,I have used JJC sound units a lot over the years and have plenty of spares , The larger one is called the master unit and the smaller one is a slave unit .The number 310 is the recording that is on the chip as yours are the same you do not need the slave unit , all you need is 12v supply and a 4 watt speaker into the top terminal block and a Y lead from your ESC to the wire from the master unit . I am not sure what sound the PE310 is but i will look at my spares and let yon know ,Regards Dave

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
