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.

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

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

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...!
