Have a quick peek at the thread "electrics" and you will find more info on Bobs boards including a link to another boat site (sorry) that explains all about them.
Happy sailing today but watch out for a change in the weather later on.

the speed boards you are thinking of were for model cars like you said
i think they were made by mardave but like you said the resistors used too
glow a bit as i was into model cars when they first came out hope this helps

This thread brings back memories.....I put a bobs board in my old Talacre, built 23 years ago. After years of neglect and no use, and I do mean years, maybe 15......I got the boat out, brushed the dust, wiped the connections and into life she sparang. The board still works as good as the day it was put in. A great piece of kit....I would love another one..

Out here in darkest Africa getting any controller is a mission but I did note that Timiya did have one in the local toy store which I quickly purchased for that rainy day. Seperate resistors on the side and works reasonably and is cheap to boot.

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.

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.
