Hello from Sussex, England.
Have watched various things on here and currently twiddling with 009 and 16mm narrow gauge, both using Deltang stuff. Seems easy, even to me, and there are some good helpful suppliers here in the UK. 
So hoping that the thread looking at lower-price receivers with ESC will be fruitful - I've often wondered if there were compatible ones as I only use direction and speed control. 
Cheers,Peter

Hi Peter :wave:



Great to see you here on Freerails ! :bg:



There are a ton of 'affordable' high-quality R.C. receivers & E.S.C.s out there, so I have discovered.

Perfect for modellers who don't want to needlessly throw tons of cash at overpriced & expensive systems. :f:



When I first looked at the cost of R.C. I was amazed at just how much money people seemed to spend on it. :shocked:

But looking a bit deeper, found that some users 'thinking outside the box' were able to do high quality installs affordably. :thumb:



I guess by 16mm narrow gauge, you mean what us Brits. call SM32.

It might just be me, but I haven't seen that much stuff in this scale, outside Blighty.

Am looking forward to seeing some pix. of what you're up to Peter.



The 'FlySky' receiver & E.S.C I've sourced would be perfect for SM32 I think.

At an amazingly low £6.38p inc. P&P for an install of both items, anyone can afford decent R.C. ...

... If they can get good information, on how to do high quality installs cost effectively. :!:



Hear from you soon.



All the best.



:moose:

Howdy Peter, glad to see you here on Freerails. You will find some helpful info about r/c here as well as low cost alternatives. Just grab a cup & look around. Ask if need be.
Also, here you don't need pesky photo host sites, you can upload your photos to the gallery and then post them in your threads. Very simple and no idiots holding your photo hostage!

Have fun and run a train today...
Woodie
