Wonderful news! I knew you would get it figured out. Not knowing what type of transmitter you have, it might be possible to get even finer speed control by using the "trim" on the throttle. Of course, what I am thinking about may be ancient technology. The trim is sort of a fine tuning capability on older transmitters to get optimum performance from motors or servos. It appears you are using a 3 volt camera battery in the loco, you might get better response with more voltage. Again, not knowing about the system you are using this may be unneeded advice. A great small Lithium-Polymer battery is made by TEAM LOSI, 7.4 volts, and would fit into your loco. This company makes the battery along with a small charger and is available from most r/c suppliers. If you are interested, you might check it out.

Now it seems that you are "hooked" on wireless operation, you won't be sorry. Please keep us posted on the progress.             Woodie
