Re: RC Newbie

Adrian,
I now have motion on both sides and functioning steering. Many thanks for the wise words.
Now all I have to work out is the winch motor. I’m leaving the sound module until I’m feeling a bit braver.

Re: RC Newbie

Thank you, Adrian and Kian, both. The mist is beginning to clear and I now start to comprehend the view through the mud!
I’m off to try this out now and hope to have good news soon.
Cheers,
Phil

Re: RC Newbie

I’m sorry, Dennis. Your post doesn’t make sense to me. All wiring is as described in the motion pack manual and I assumed that it would work. Reciever plug 1 is linked to the left joystick, fore and aft movement so is the obvious control for the motors.

Re: RC Newbie

Kian, Having a right ‘mare uploading photos so I’ll start with the written description. Both motors are connected to the Speed control terminals as per the manual. The winch motor is connected to Switched1. Terminal 1, marked THRO on the receiver, is connected to R/C input 1. The steering servo is c...

Famo: Go! Don’t go!

Coming to the end of my Famo build and am installing the MOP. Wired up as per the manual the winch motor is running as soon as I power up the system (even before being paired to my transmitter). Also unable to get the main motors to respond to the Tx. Moving the stick produces a small, relay type cl...

Re: RC Newbie

I have now worked out which channel does what. Thanks again Adrian. However I am unable to get either drive motor to run. Also the winch motor runs as soon as the power goes on! Just a tad annoying..
As ever any tips or advice would be gratefully received. Phil

Re: RC Newbie

Thanks Adrian, I have the red fuse version. I’ll see if I can find a servo in the morning and report back.

RC Newbie

Apologies if this is a bit simplistic but as a total rube when it comes to Radio Control I’m very much of the plug in and play user. Building the Famo, I’m now at the point of bench testing the electrics and, after a visit to a local store I bought an Exmitter EX7, 7 channel outfit. Now trying to ge...

Re: Famo winch and lighting

Thank you both. I hadn’t noticed the need to shim the snail cover so will give that a try. I’ll also try a small u/j as Florian did. Hi ho, upward and upward, 🥴 PhilC

Re: Famo winch and lighting

Hi Phil, the winch turns nicely with the drill and it also turned for approx 10 seconds when attached to the motor with the tube but otherwise no go. Phil

Famo winch and lighting

Good morning wise and knowledgeable builders, How have you managed to get the winch to work without binding as the drive shaft and motor axle are not aligned in a straight line? I have tried the connector provided, wouldn’t turn; tried a flexible link with tight pvc tube, wouldn’t turn. I’m wonderin...

Re: Stolen Quad

Thanks for your posts, guys. If photobucket would only behave I’d put up a couple of picks but it’s being a pain just now!
Only the Quad has the Caunter scheme and apart for some fetching, pale green covers on the seats is completely OOB.
Fingers crossed, Phil C
