Gents,

For the sake of quick reference, please list the size and specifications of your R/C transmitters, ESCs, and batteries.

Please tell us what you have, what size it is, where you purchased it, and any other pertinent specifications (voltage, etc.)

Thanks!

Gary

Gary--sorry to take so long posting this, but this is some of the R/C stuff that I have played with.


From left-- first is Planco 3 channel, 900MHz, 4.5 V max, 2 amp max has ESC but no fwd/rev  14.5 X 16.5 X 5 mm $60 for two right now. to get reverse the small tan DPDT relay 10 X 6 X 7 mm can be connected to one of the "actuator" connections. This RX does not use standard servo electrics. almost the minimum in antenna- two short pieces of hair fine wire abt. 3" long 

Middle --RVProject "Micro Fine-Tune Esc--abt.$30 Has fwd/rev. Meant for R/C car so max amps will be far higher than what we need. Max volts TBD but at least 7.3  27 MHz, 46 X 21 X 20 (reducible to 10 if you remote mount the crystal which by itself measures 19 X 16 X 5) Motor (top) servo steering connection (right side) and on-off switch (bottom) can be removed

Right- Losi micro T car RX (with ESC)  abt $45--Has fwd/rev. Again more amps than what we need, but exceed 8 volts at your own risk. 27 MHz.  41 X 35 X 14 mm (35 is reducible to 31 by remote mounting crystal-- same crystal as above



Hope that this gives you a small idea of what's out there- there is lots more -- (Gardenville? Woodie?---anybody???)

Herb-I am not familiar with the tiny board on the left, the center board looks like an IWAVER "knock off" version of a KYOSHO MINI-Z board (which I use), and there's the LOSI MICRO T board on the right. I have a couple of IWAVER boards, and a couple of LOSI boards just in case..... The KYOSHO board is capable of handling 11.1 volts while (as you know) the LOSI board is lower voltage. We have used 7.4 Li Poly's for the LOSI, however, my buddy Joe B uses 9 volt alkalines in his LOSI equipped locos. I am not sure of the power handling of the IWAVER board, it may be up to KYOSHO's specs. The tiny PLANCO board is about the size of the small boards that come in tiny r/c toy cars that retail for 5 bucks. There ain't nothin' wrong with the little boards, they have single speed, fwd and backward. If you have some little critter that uses a good gearhead motor and runs s l o w, you can get away with one. I have on in the Model T and it is run with a LOSI 7.4 volt 2 cell so the board can handle it.

Gary-when the weather is better & you can drop by, you will be able to actually see these boards and more importantly-see how well they run a locomotive. I know that when you get to run an r/c loco, the "dark side" will consume you too and you will begin to travel down the trail of wireless devotees. (how about them apples?)

A good overview of usual Lipo cell sizes you find here:

Juergen-

Thanks for posting, especially the link.

I assume that all the units that you pictured are 2.4 GHz

Time for another chapter of the island adventure?


Herb

Herb,

the esc's are frequency-independent. You can plug them to any RC receiver. Only the receiver has to fit to the transmitter frequency.

In case of 2,4Ghz the receiver must additionally be from the same manufacturer as the transmitter.

Hi,

found another tiny esc on the web.



LC302 from http://www.antenna-models.com/

But also the a bit larger LC301 is interesting, it provides directional light and an additional function as as I have understood.

Remembered this thread. Perhaps new RC enthusiasts could help to collect cmponent infos here.

I discovered a manufacturer that I didn't know before in another forum.

http://www.microinvent.com/mambo/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=21&Itemid=40

He makes very small receivers, some as well combined with an esc. For 2,4 Ghz as well as for 40 and 72 Mhz. (Also for 35Mhz but this is restricted to the fliying guild) For the 2.4Ghz receivers you have to use their own Transmitter system.



Getting information about the different things is a bit laborious, as you have to open the appropriate PDF.
