    Yeah the book tells me how to do the link so hopefully thats easily enough, and LED's are simple to, the FeatherTwo are out of stock at the moment but will keep an eye on them, as im only running drill motors hopefully will be reliable

    I have spoken to Rory a feathertwo duel can run 2 12v 550 (standard drill motors) overvolted per channel so they are plenty. Also they should be back in stock very soon

    I'm tempted to buy one of these so can practice driving etc and with the transmitter etc as they sound like a lot of fun

    Antweights are a bit fiddly to build (well, I find them anyway, I have all the delicacy of a concrete breeze block) but they are properly good fun. Feathers are a bit of a different beast in how the drive purely because of the size/power difference but the principal is the same

    Thanks for all the feedback Theo & Michael. Since I already have the FeatherTwo I may as well try that with the old receiver & if that doesn't work I'll know what's wrong & what to do about it.

    Adam I have one (or two) of those Shakey antweights & I cannot recommend them enough. Not only are they fun but they also can teach you a lot without you even realising it. For instance since they run on Lipo batteries I learned how to handle them properly.

    Yeah I think I will invest in one, I assume I need to get a charger for LiPo's?

    Yep, you need a specialist charger for LiPos. A Turnigy Accucell 6 is the charger I use, never let me down yet. You'll also want to invest in a LiPo bag to charge them in, which are dirt cheap anyway.
