|Thread: BRUTUS MK 11|
Get well soon Paul
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
Hello Bob , My first Perkasa i used the same esc as yours i got from Perkins and were fine , However i bought 2 more more for another project from another supplier and they were awful , Hope Yours are not the same Best Regards Dave

|Thread: JJC units|
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

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.
