  1. Hi there I need some help please with my vintage Tamiya RC car. Today i tried to use the car but i cannot control it from my reciever. So i tried to set up the ESC and followed the instruction manual guide, trolled through Youtube etc and i got nothing at all. The set up i have is as follows: Transmitter - 2Ch Acoms Techniplus Transmitter Crystal - 27.045Mhz Reciever - Acoms 2Ch reciever (AR-2 /27) Reciever Crystal - 27.045 ESC - Tamiya TEU-101BK So, here is how everything is connected in my car. The reciever has the steering server connected in Channel 1 socket and ESC is plugged in to the Channel 2 socket. The ESC has its battery connected too. During setup the motor was disconnected. I followed the procedure where the transmitter was in neutral settings etc . I switched on the power switch and then pressed the set button for about 1sec. Then i pushed up the (CH2) stick and pressed set and then pushed it down and pressed set. The lights did not change or do anything. I switched of the power and switched it on again. The ESC beeped twice and the red LED flashes away with a beeping too. I also noticed the the wheels are twitching and the steering servo also twitches now and again. I understand that previously i would hear this beeping noise (when the car was working ) when the transmitter was disconnected and when switched on the beeping noise would go and the car would be drivable. These are the checks that i have carried out. - Transmitter works well on other cars using the same 27.045Mhz Crystal. -Replaced the ESC and Acoms recioever. -Checked wiring etc So, cxan anyone give me any other fresh ideas to what i need to do please? Any help much appreciated. Thanks
  2. Hey folks, Selling my vintage Acoms Techniplus Ap-227 Mk3 2 Channel 27 MHz Radio. This is made in Japan not the ones that were made in Hong Kong. See photos attached. Includes transmitter, receiver, 27Mhz frequency crystal, and servos. The radio and receiver are in great condition. Both servos are working great. One servo has a some melted plastic due to being used for a mechanical speed controller. US$30 or best offer. Free shipping to continental USA only. Or buy it through eBay at https://www.ebay.com/itm/304067706273?hash=item46cbd8fda1:g:ubAAAOSwUhVg8Hke
  3. I would like to get my Hi-Lux Monster Racer up and running after 25 years. I want to continue using the original acoms radio gear (AP-227 MK3). Can I connect an ESC into the acoms receiver? If so, what ESC would be suitable? The current receiver does not have BEC on it and is sealed so cannot plug/unplug wires into it. I assume that definitely means I will need a different acoms receiver? All new to me!
  4. Hi All, Trying to get sorted for some bashing and noticed that I am missing the battery cover for an Acoms transmitter. Please let me know if you can help. Many thanks Mark

  11. Hello everybody, I am giving away an old acoms 2 channel FM pistol transmitter. It comes with a 27mhz crystal and a plastic geared servo. The Transmitter has throttle and steering trims, reverse switches, steering dual rate, uses 8 AA batteries and is missing the antenna. It still works fine. You can get a screw-on antenna for a few €. The controller comes with an acoms plastic gear servo. Unfortunately I do not have a receiver anymore. I am willing to give those away as long as the "buyer" takes care of the shipping costs which should be 5-7€ max.

  13. Hi guys I,ve got the failsafe set so the throttle is at neutral and the car turns hard left. my first question is if i run the car then turn the TX off to test it the failsafe kicks in after about 3 seconds. is this correct as i thought it would kick in immediately as soon as the TX is switched off? my second question is how do you set the failsafe so the car brakes? if while setting the failsafe i pull the throttle back to activate the brake this causes the car to run in reverse if the failsafe kicks in.(hence why i set the throttle position to neutral). cheers Karl
