Another new member from the UK here...I've been attracted to this forum by the high level of technical information regarding radio controlled model railways which is an area I'm particularly interested in. Hoping to build an oo gauge garden railway in the next year or so so it's all useful stuff.
There is a lot of useful information on here about radio control so I am sure you will find it interesting. Any queries, just ask, there are also plenty of people willing to help.
There is a growing interest in radio control in the UK, I have been using it in my modelling in 009 for over two years now, and there are quite a few people using it in various scales.
Also there have been a number of developments in the DelTang radio control equipment which many people in the UK use in the smaller scales, and DavidT, who builds these, is also on the forum here and keeps us up to date.
