|Mick. If the controller came with a marlin motor, then it would have been a 12v capable version as thats what the Marlin mototr run at. I will see if my Fantome manual has anything about the wiring thereof (it being what these kits were supplied with). I bought an electronic speed controller with mine, which came with a seperate sheet, but the instructions are very old so it might have something on it. Alternativly you could call MFA and they should be able to tell you what wire goes where. Ashley|

I don't think it matters which pair goes to which.
You would be using a fuse anyway so it shouldn't matter.

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.
