Well Arrow, I guess your computer is up and running again, at least after a fashion---.

When I get frazzled, I have a glass or two of wine, and that makes everything better.

And more glasses of wine make things MUCH better---.

buy a new one and use the old for a barge....(smile)
Had a fight with the spouse over buying this one, but the old one packed it in the day before we got our tax refund this year so that was not an option any more.

LEDs

I plan to use 12 Red LEDs and 25 White LEDs on my springer, what kind of power would that take. I will run them on a seperate circut so that if my battery on the ESC's end dies i can still see it if it is dark out. I know i need some resistors but not sure how many volts ect to use. Thanks guys!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hey Toes,
Since you are seemingly the expert here on this board would it be possible to make a pair of barges to go with a springer to skim oil close to the marshes? Use the barges for the skimmer(s) and the springer to move it in the shallow.....Just spit balling.

The scale of your springer model depends on how big you build the doors.

My springer is 1/60
