  1. Hi I was looking for a more conventional 'normal' screwdriver, but powered, and I found this: https://batavia.eu/product/tool/compact-grip-screwdriver/ It's pretty much the same dimensions as a screwdriver, but does the job very well. And the battery is charged using a normal USB cable. There are other wonders on that site too, including a handheld chainsaw!!
  2. It was the Futaba 4GRS, the only 2.4GHz stick transmitter with memory and display on their website. The T6K is also a bit too expensive for me, although of course I am quite happy to spend 200 quid on a car! Duh...
  3. Thanks guys. I did eventually work out the Ch3 and Mode settings after I wrote the second post... ....but what a newbie error! I followed the motor-to-esc wiring diagram in the TL-01 manual, instead of what is obviously a new revision in the ESC manual, ie yellow to yellow....duh... What makes it even dafter is that I did it right in the first build, an M-05. Anyway, all is now working and thanks to all for their kind assistance.
  4. Thanks for your reply - I think a reset is probably for the best. I have tried it with a different car and am getting the same result. I tried a Spektrum DX-2E pistol but didn't really like twisting the little wheel. Ideally I would like a twin-stick with display and memory, but the only one I can find is a Futaba for nearly 300 quid!!
  5. Hi chaps I know the FS-i6 is meant for aircraft/helicopters, but I thought it was possible to use it with cars?? Needless to say, I can't get to work (fully). I have a TL-01 chassis which I know is working (servo and motor). When I bind the transmitter to an FS-ia6B receiver, that works. Now the whole lot is controlled by a known working TBLE-02S ESC. Whatever I do with the transmitter, the steering works but there is no sign of life in the motor. I notice that the previous owner has updated the firmware to the hacked version that allows for 10 channels. Would I be better off resetting the unit to factory? Or should I abandon the transmitter and get a 'normal' two-stick jobbie? I can't even get two channels to work! Help!!
  6. Yep, I have a TBLE-02S. Practically brand-new but throttle function not working. Steering is working and therefore the switch is also OK. Happy to send just for the postage. Ninian Yule
  7. Very much just into rc as a pastime - definitely not a racer! I shall just buy several bodyshells and pootle about the odd empty industrial estate at weekends! On that basis unlikely to get any hop-ups, though you never know. Although it's not bad, already a bit dissatisfied with my Carson radio and its lack of memory. Now that I have more money to spare, my next step will be a CC-01, probably the very tempting Land Rover Defender. And again some more bodyshells... Then I'll probably get a TT-02 and leave it at that. Although I do fancy a Dancing Rider. Darn you, Tamiya!
  8. Thanks to all who took the time to advise and welcome an ancient decrepit newbie (65!) It just needed a slight adjustment to the tie rod to the servo. All working fine now. I amaze myself at how easy it was to set up...I did find the build itself quite difficult, especially those bloomin' screws that tighten up too early in their holes! Have just finished masking my first bodyshell (Mazda Demio) and have now sprayed the first colour (black). I deliberately chose this shell as it only needs two colours! First time also that I have ever masked and sprayed the inside of anything - at one point I had it sat on my head while masking!!
  9. Surely some mistake?? Even allowing £15-£20 for VAT etc from Hong Kong, that makes the Bronco ridiculously cheap! A certain Scottish outlet is selling it for £165!!
  10. Hi all Santa bought me a lovely Charleston kit to celebrate my return to the hobby after an 18-year absence. I had built a Hummer in 2000, preceded by a Beetle in 1982, but gave up both times because the models just were too darn fast and difficult to control. Thanks to the wonderful ESC those issues are now solved! I have finished my M-05 chassis, but as you can see from the photo, with the servo in neutral, neither front wheel is lined up properly. Can anyone advise which bit(s) I should adjust?? As a born-again newbie I'm at a bit of a loss... Thanks for any advice you can give me. Ninian Yule
