I've taken the liberty of re-Posting some of Michaels latest 1:35n2 critter photos here.

R.C. of course ! ... powered by a nice slow :slow: running precision gearbox-motor & 'FlySky' 2.4 GHz receiver etc.





The Nye, Inyo & Esmeralda Railroad No.20 out on a test-run.





The cover for the water tank, which carries all the electronics, hasn't been attached to the frame yet.

Michael used a single 7.4-Volt LiPo battery, for his power source I believe.


Not only is the critters 'FlySky' installation a high-quality 2.4 GHz system ...

... but the components are VERY affordable as well.


I obtained the same parts ( other than buying two separate 3.7-Volt batteries ) ...

... for these prices :-

:old dude:

£3.84p inc. P&P - 'FlySky' Modular 2.4 GHz Receiver.

£2.54p inc. P&P -  E.S.C. Electronic Speed Controller.

£2.72p inc. P&P -  2x LiPo Batteries 3.7-Volts.


& that's it ! :shocked:


The component cost for 1 loco is just ... £9.10p inc. P&P ! ! :cool:
