" Yes, the boards are that old and the Li Po batteries are just about that old "
I have to say, I wouldn't even be trying this project, without your inspiration.
I'm not 'pennyless', so I could EASILY go out & buy all the usual hi-cost R.C. gear, no problem.
However, as a kid with ZERO $$$, I always took on the challenge, to do what others paid 10x the price for, as a necessity !
Having just celebrated my 50th birthday last week ...
... I now actually ENJOY that challenge, and am always rewarded, when I can 'give the bird' to the jet-set !
I've consistently done this whilst designing & building electronics in vacuum-tubes, scientific-projects & more recently pro-audio.

" Low cost engines and RC gear always puts a smile on my face."
It's nice to have a big smile about these things !
Although the Model-Power Plymouth is indeed 'low cost' ...
... the R.C. system I'm putting together is intended to be HIGH QUALITY at 'low cost'.
I believe it would be just as at home in a $1000 dollar loco, as in the Model-Power Plymouth.
I'm just 'breaking the mould' & putting it all together for about £15 quid.
That includes ...
The receiver & electronic speed control.
The power regulator.
The battery charger.
So far, I'm on budget as well ... £15 quid ! ... for the ENTIRE high-quality system !!
That's inc. delivery P&P by the way.
