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.

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.

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.
