Howdy guys, there is a real procedure for "firing up" an r/c locomotive (or any other r/c device)
and that is to turn on the transmitter FIRST and then the loco, turn the loco OFF then the transmitter.
I have made that mistake time and again and almost all the time when I turned on the loco first, it would "take off" without any control.
Now, there may be some other reason for Bernd's control situation but this is just MY experience.
I was warned by r/c flyers and car racers long ago to switch on the Xmitter first and off last.
It works every time (for me).


BTW Rick, if you don't wire up a layout to begin with then you might "get the drift" faster.
Necessity is the Frank Zappa of invention...or something like that.

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