Howdy Peter,

If it doesn't have speed control (proportional) then it probably isn't what you want.

With that stated, I started off into r/c with little cheap r/c car boards which had no speed control,
but when I installed one in a 1:48 railcar I built with a Grandt 80:1 gearhead motor,
it worked quite well.

The geared motor would "spool up" and then go top speed, about 10 SMPH,
and when stopped, it slowed down OK.  All because of the gearing.

If this isn't much money and the board is small enough,
I'd say get one and mess with it.


It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
