Re: CHIEFTAIN

Thanks for the pics Stephen.

Re: Spectrum Transmitter.

The "e" range of transmitters are the bottom of the range from Spektrum and have (to me) a very cheap feel to them. Also, the DX6e doesn't have dual antennas (diversity) so there is an increased risk in losing the quality of the signal between the transmitter and the receiver. Probably not much of a...

Re: Taper lock bush

If it slides off, you haven't done the two grub screws up tight enough. These things really bite when fitted correctly.

I take it you only have the grub screws fitted in the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions (with the slot through the bush vertical) ?

My memory of the instructions is hazy but I think it was more likely the driver had floored the accelerator and wasn't kicking the tank up through the gears fast enough.

Re: Mark IV No. 35

I'm sorry to hear about the issues you've been having, especially with Eric. Make sure you warm the electronics through thoroughly, as water can sit under surface mounted chips for a remarkable length of time. With the Toasty Tiger modules, I left them on a 25 degree radiator for a day, then in the ...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

I'd be happy to order from within the UK and post on abroad if anyone needs something from EKP.

I'll cost more in postage but at least it'll make it out of the country that way :lol:
