Hi Michael

Watching this with interest.
I have not come across this unit in the UK, and it looks interesting.

On the pickups,
if you imagine putting the loco on a siding with the points (switch) set to the main line ie against the loco,
then the point blades will put a dead short across the running rails that the loco is standing on.

You really don't want the radio control unit to be trying to drive this short circuit,
as it won't last very long!

So you have to disconnect the pickups from the motor.
