Not MINT - but well-looked-after !


Back in 'the day', 30 years ago... those old 3-speeds never 'did it' for me - they were not fast enough !


Now that I am as slow as those can go - they are too expensive for what they are - toy trucks !


No - it will go into a different boat, unless someone buys it.

I have had offers...!

Note that there is no battery box and switch harnesss...


...lost over time because the radio has been used in boats with an ESC.

Hello Alex,


I dug out the correct battery box for this - it took SOME finding as I have never used it !


The sticks are now converted to Mode 2 - and it has had a full makeover.


It looks ALMOST mint now... certainly as good as my old Futaba radio sets.
