RC Car system

Liberated an RC Car system: Futaba TX & Shreader RX.

Trigger can be adjusted from spring centered to full forward low/off.

Shreader RX is smaller than JR R610.

Got is working with a couple of Jeti ESCs.

Plan to do a S400 something and attache the line to the TX; this one is older and doesn't feel too bad.

May be a while; but I'll post notable progress.

Hi Jim, sounds interesting though personally I would prefer to avoid radios mixing it up with C/L. I like to get away from the hassle of interference, frequency control etc. Actually, thinking about it, infra-red might not be much better if too many people start using it.

Or did you mean by "attach the line to the TX" that you were going to run the trainer output down the control lines ? I gather that's what the C/L scale guys usually do.

Are you starting to get the impression that there's only the 2 of us left around here ? Oh well it was a brave idea.

Well Steve there's not many around; for now.

"Build it and they'll come"!!!

Sorry to be short and confusing.

Will attach nylon control lines right to the RC Car TX.

This will be the quickest way for me to get into the air; not the most eloquent.

Just an experiment.

So in the plane will be RX, ESC, etc.

ECL motor control list as I've see it here:

battery/motor -- go
jrb cut-off relay

above need help/below alone


below. build handle & e-c lines

battery in pocket, power down the lines
jrb cut=off relay w/switch in handle

slewin servo testers
pot or switch in handle
servo tester in handle -- the most eloquent!!!

That's really a lot of ways of doing it!
