Re: Stolen Van HJ 61 NJU White ford Transit

Its worth fitting a hidden switch or link somewhere to the electric fuel pump, something like an XT60 that can be pulled out in the same way as removing the rotor arm from a petrol distributor.

Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

What this means is that if the insurance company will wave the requirement to register then a mass boycott is on the cards !

Re: Setting up a twin

Do not extend the battery wires on the ESC's, only use one BEC or a dedicated BEC instead of the ones built into the ESC's. You can extend the ESC battery wires using capacitors, but that makes things more complicated than you want to look at ! I think I understand what you are asking, Opto isolatio...
