Re: R607FS RECEIVER

Thanks Peter
Is there an alternative to the Electowise switching unit?
I have had the back off, nothing burnt, but how do you test them?

Re: R607FS RECEIVER

Hi All
Back again
The BEC wires are one red,one brown.
I do not have a record/photo to show where the wires go.
I presume its red to the center terminal and brown to the outer edge of the receiver? or the edge next to the electronics?
I know its terminal marked 7/8

Re: Another new toy

Hi Adrian
Same as you mainly but Mach 3 has simple wizards to do straight forward milling and turning built in.

Re: Another new toy

Hi Adrian
An interesting buy. :D
I have a Colchester Master from the 50/60,s era converted to CNC with a vertical slide and rotary table i.e 4 axis.
The software I use is Mach 3 which has its problems but works 99.9% of the time faultlessly.
Best of luck with your buy.

Re: R607FS RECEIVER

Hi Peter and all I need to know what colour wire goes to what pin? What also worries me is can the connectors be put in both ways which will swap the wires round. I have ordered some Futaba connectors,I hope they are easy to put the wires on. My definition of bridging is a separate wire between two ...

From the receiver two lots go to the Electrowise type 48-2w. (red,white,black) One l...
