Ok, so after hearing about the supply problems of Deltang and getting product from them I decided to try out the 'FlySky' that Si. suggested in his post on the Tam Valley thread.

I've got the the Tx and Rx. I also ordered an ESC from E-bay. Still awaiting for the battery and battery charger.

So, a question for Si. The ESC came without any instructions and I can't seem to find any on the Net by Googling. The questions are, what do the two switches do? One is on the circuit board, the other is wired in. The two red and black wires with the red connectors, which is which? I'm figuring one is for the battery, the other for the motor. So, is the female plug for the battery or the motor?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Bernd

Hi Bernd :wave:



I am actually messing about with those parts at the moment.

Including removing the 'FlySky' receivers plastic casing.



They need to fit in a Porter tender, under construction at present.





But before trimming any wires, or changing any connectors ...

... I decided that a 'spaghetti bench test' would be wise.



The 2 pairs of red & black wires emerging from the E.S.C. for the battery & motor are ...

... cable-plug is for the battery ...

... cable-socket is for the motor.



The 3-way white/red/black wires emerging from the E.S.C ...

... should be connected to the 'FlySky' receivers Channel-2, observing correct polarity.



The single pair of red/red wires emerging from the E.S.C. ...

... terminates in a cable mounted general on/off switch.



I actually don't know what the switch on the P.C.B. is for.

But it MAY be an on/off switch for a 'brake' function.

Which if true, will have little effect for trains on either setting.



When the stuff is wired on the bench, I'll flip it and see !



:!:



Si.



The battery & motor connectors will both be discarded, as they are quite large.

I might use the on/off switch perhaps.

The 3-way white/red/black cable-socket, may get cut off & wires soldered directly to the receiver.



At £3.84p inc. P&P for the 'Flysky' receiver ...

... & only £2.54p inc. P&P for the E.S.C. ...

... experimentation is a low-cost risk !

Si, glad to see that this thread is about wiring the board...I first thought that somebody was trying to sell the damn thing here in which case I would need to fire up the "delete topic" key.

You gots some 'splainin to do Lucy!

I've got all the parts needed to convert my Bachmann Shay except for one thing...a round tuit.

Maybe you'll get some more converts on BPRC the inexpensive way.

Someone should manufacture round tuits. At work over 40 years ago there was a critical shortage of them, it seems this is still true!

Amazon here in the states has the Tx/Rx for $29, A Hobbywing ESC goes for $21, both with free shipping.

First for Michael M a Round Tuit.




When I was on a machining forum I used to say that I'd get a round to it so much one of the members cast a Round Tuit in aluminum for me.

Same here. Still waiting for the batteries. I'm installing one in an HO old Blue Box Atheran F7 A & B. The battery pack is a N/MHi 6 volt battery pack.

Thanks for the answer to what wires are what, I knew the three wires go to the receiver. Was confused as to the other two with the cable plug and socket. I figured that the switches are as you say. Just needed to confirm that. Thanks. Going to do the same with the connectors.

One thing that doesn't seem clear is the binding plug. On the pdf instruction sheet on this system it shows the binding plug plugged into where the battery power should be plugged into. What's your take on that?

Bernd
