|Over the weekend I converted a Bachmann On30 Porter 0-4-2 to RC.
Installed a DelTang RX61 receiver, Pololu 9 Volt step up regulator, 250 mAh LiPo battery, reed switch and a charge jack.
In order to hide the battery I made an oil tank to replace the coal load in the fuel bunker.
I still need to paint on numbers and weather it but otherwise it is done.
I test ran it at part throttle pulling three heavily weighted cars.
It ran continuously for a little over one hour.
On recharge it took in 243 mAh so, the run time will basically be one hour.
A 2 cell battery would greatly increase that time but would not be hidden.
