  1. Yeah, just to the throttle channel.
  2. I've had some Far East orders over the last month and they made it here in good time. Great radio and you can flash the firmware to get more channels and more functionality. It's a win win radio.
  3. My charger won't charge unless the main connector is plugged in. You can buy a JST charging lead separately. https://www.modelsport.co.uk/index.php?product_id=376837&gclid=Cj0KCQjwtLT1BRD9ARIsAMH3BtUIYD09pRxBTStqQAFgyl1VzG__jjvohJEOn8iNhoRPQRoI852EvdwaAv86EALw_wcB Also, Lipos are easy to work with. Takes about 10 minutes of reading to know everything you need to know.
  4. FlySky here too. The FS-GT3c is only 45 quid and you can flash the firmware to get a load more channels and funtionality out of it.
  5. No maintenance hatch for the Rx either so it's an original tub.
  6. I put a bit of washing up liquid in hot water. Washing up liquid also acts as a replasticizer for old, brittle plastic parts. The other thing you might like to get is a set of bearings.
  7. Crashed, nice project. If it were me, I would strip down and clean everything. You might want to invest in a small sonic cleaner. Wives and GFs love sonic cleaners as they can put their jewelry in them. I would then build a Rough Runner.
  8. Are you going to stop drill the cracks to stop them spreading? I feel your pain.
  9. Here's my rebuild: I had a few issues there that you might come across.
  10. Do you strip them down for the cleaner or put them in complete?
  11. Silver can 540s are 3.27UKP at Hobbyking. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/540-6527-brushed-motor-90w.html
  12. Which is bad design because the nuts deform and you end up not being able to to get the box off without taking the bolt out. The point of a well nut is to from a friction fit with the well walls.
  13. Hi Kev, the re re just has two holes and no tube/well sides to press against. I'll post some pictures later.
  14. Merry Xmas everyone. Here are a couple of pics of my runner project. I reamed out the rear 'well' hole so the nut fits. But with neither 'well' actually being a well with sides for the nuts to expand against, I'm going to have to make something the box will be loose or the nuts will get squished.
