Thanks Greg - that gives me an idea of something else to try.

Well, it worked, sort of. Operation on 7.2v separate battery is even slower than running off the receiver. Weird. I wonder if I made a bad solder connection....

The "spool" of the winch should be removable, right? Just like any other sail arm? Mine doesn't want to come off, and I don't want to force it.

Whirlwind Olympic

Hi
I just stumbled upon this thread.
A couple of weeks ago, I had 2 WW Olympics serviced and brought back to life.
This was done by a man in Germany who was reccomended to me by some German RCSailors.
He is quite elderly and I corresponded in German.
When anyone is interested, I could get in touch and take it from there.
Please contact me off list.
