Could one of you Moderators or Admin's add a "D" after my "Purchase a 'Fly-Sky' FS-GT2E before Woodie has a heart attack.? ???   :)  :)  :)

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



Hi Guys :wave:



Just to let you know how much I spent on my R.C. kit :- L:



'FlySky' FS-GT2E Transmitter & receiver twin-pack - eBay $20 inc. P&P

'FlySky' additional receivers only - eBay $5 inc. P&P

E.S.C. 10-Amps. - eBay $3 inc. P&P



So you can get the basic TX. RX. & ESC. parts all in for about $23 inc. P&P :shocked:



Just add the battery of YOUR choice, mine I think were a couple of 380mA LiPos at about a Buck fifty a piece on eBay inc. P&P

A 6-port LiPo battery charger cost me another $1.25 inc. P&P on eBay.

Plus I also bought a high quality and efficient 9-Volt 'step-up regulator' two for $1 inc. P&P



No overdraft or VISA card meltdown was experienced by this R.C. customer. :cool:



:old dude:



Si.



P.S. For those who simply just can't separate the 2 concepts of 'cheap' & 'high-quality' ...

... just think of the blood-pressure lowering word 'affordable' ! ;)



This is a mega-mooodern 2.4 GHz transmitter/receiver specification ...

... with full frequency-hopping technology, for essentially ZERO interference ... EVER ! :shocked:



The transmitter is a very nice build quality as well. :)

Smooth 'quality feel' mechanism, both forwards & backwards.

The 'ergonomics' of the design, is just about PERFECT.

EASY one handed operation, making coupling/uncoupling an absolute BREEZE ...

... without having to put the transmitter down, or use both hands to hold & operate it.

Howdy Bernd...I fixed the topic just so you wouldn't have my "premature" death on your mind. The system looks OK to me but that "Capt. Kirk" phase pistol needs some fixin'. My buddy Dave and I just got a couple of old analog 27MHZ 2 stick transmitters (just what we wanted) on fleabay for $30 for the pair. Somebody had taken the battery contacts out and figured that "he" would scam a couple of old dudes. We installed Li-Po batteries in them and they both work like "burnin' hell". I was ready to build a new case for my old car transmitter but this satisfied me! (I must be really old for a transmitter to satisfy me...or crazy!)

Thanks Woodie. I don't think I could have stood the mental strain. :w:  :) :)

Woodie

Going to change that "Phaser" to something that will resemble the type of throttles we're used to using. L:   :brill:

It is of course the 'pot. in a box' approach, from Train-Sets that " we're used to using "

But why ?

Well, yes, it was easy enough, back in the day, to just bung a wirewound pot. in a box ...

... MUST be the right way to do it. :P



Bear in mind single handed operation for a 'walkaround' at all costs. L:

You won't regret it !

In fact WHY turn an innovative ergonomic dream, into a 'pot. in a box' at all ?



Oh IT IS a 'pot. in a box' Jim, but not as we know it !





NOT a 'pot. in a box'.

Mysterious Moose Mountains recent S.C.R throttle handset build.

NICE !



:moose:

As for 'Captain Kirk' style transmitters, you start with this:


and after a bit of tinkering:

Hello All, 

I too was inspired by Si's 'FlySky' info on the Tam Valley thread.  I already had TX and RX so I just ordered a 10amp ESC of Ebay.  It arrived from China a few days ago and looks just like the one you guys ordered but it came with instructions.  I hooked it all up on the bench on Friday and it works great.  I will now be back in the RC business.  I plan to put this in an Oscale switcher. Oh and the ESC was cheap only 4 dollars? And the TX and RX I have a friend gave me.

That is not much money to get going in RC.

Phil,

If I understand this right the Receiver works at 3 to 6 volts and you O scale engine probably has a 12 volt motor, correct? What voltage battery are you going to use?

Any chance you could copy and post the instructions of the receiver?

Bernd

Bernd,
The receiver I already had.  The ESC I bought outputs a constant 5v to run the receiver or at least that is what I have been told by my friend that is a airplane guy. The ESC I have is similar but different than the Flysky. I am using 3 cell batteries.
