Sounds like these are intended to be on their own individual channel.
Either that or a matchbox solution.
It is on/off, but the force is adjustable (on the ground) so that should work fine.

The tires are nice.... solid rubber, not too hard and not too soft. I have already painted the rims silver so they don't look like Soviet era wheels.

Not in the same league with these from AMAXRC. AMAX are $50. Electron are approximately $270. Amax are for 90mm size EDFs. Electrons are for turbines.

Got a set yesterday, 1 worked, the other has an open in the electro magnet itself. E-mailed AMAX we`ll see how good customer service is. A simple continuity check before packaging would have found this! The one that works does a good job. Hope they replace the bad unit without a lot of trouble. Richard Driftmyer CMSgt USAF (R)
