Railroad remote control system
Hi all: I have a question but first some background:
while I'm a sailboat R/C enthusiast, I also build 1:13.7 scale trains. So it's been 8 years since I built this:
Here's what it looks like under the hood:
It contains the following:
ProBoat Waterproof ESC Electronic Speed Control; cost was $40
Ranger II HiTec Radio transmitter/receiver CH 70 75; cost was $40
It's powered with NiMh 9.7V battery
I don't use the servos; rather, I purchase a motor block and that powers the train.
I'm thinking that over the 8 years since I did this, technology has evolved somewhat and more products are available.
Can you recommend a similar low-cost system for me as I intend to start building more trains now.
Here is the first one on my search. There were a lot more.
