    I'll second that, great work Giles. Can I ask which model receiver you have you used for this project?

    It's an RX 47 Kim, with two ADD1's to give me additional reversible ESC's
    So I'm using
    4 X reversible ESC
    2 X Servo

    At the moment I'm using a temporary transmitter, which is all knobs - but Andy at Micron (UK) is very kindly going to produce me a TX with four joysticks (and a knob....)

    Best,

    Giles

    Thank you folks - I confess I used focus stacking to get the whole loco in focus with that picture, but it did come out nicely.

    Here it is (briefly) in action (unlit)

    Giles the loco is even more impressive in motion, but the gates and the operators leg is simply brilliant. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: :thumbs:

    That is really impressive Giles, well done. :thumbs:

    Have you considered putting a small servo in the cab of the Garrett to operate the drivers arm on the throttle ?? :scratchchin:

    Cheers, Gary.

    Some scenic work has been going on, as well as producing the laser components for people.

    Incredible video Giles. I've never seen anything quite like it before.
    don't know what I can say really as it just wouldn't be enough.
    thank you for sharing your wonderful work

    Giles - superb, my only critisim would be that the truck suspension didn't compress when the cable drum hit the load bed :avatar:

    Brilliant video and models - Ralph over to you :giggle:

    But at least the factory building is nearing completion at last (and the crane working again...). All the guttering and pipe work seemed to take days.... No - it DID take days.
