Receiver and Controller

Postby dagide91 » May 12th, 2017, 4:21 am

Hi all,
I'm building my first RC sailboat model (RS75); I'm stuck trying to find a suitable receiver + controller...
I found this: https://www.banggood.com/FlySky-FS-i6-2 ... rehouse=EU but I don't know if it's ok for a boat. What do you think?

Where can I find suitable and cheap radio hardware (possibly shipping from europe)?

There are loads of options available. You only need 2 channels.

here's a really cheap sets:

I've flown gliders and it's good to have a really accurate expensive transmitter but the sail boats it's not as important in my opinion.

I've bought lots of servos from hobby king in the past. great website.

I also can't find the rudder pin plate.. The most look-like thing I found on hobbyking is this: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/water-rudde ... loats.html

Can you please help me again?

Hi, I don't know where you live as there is no indication, but if you are in Britain you cannot go wrong with Cornwall model boats. http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/cgi ... 1_21MA3064

Their selection is fantastic and they are very helpful and their delivery service is really good. This is the type of rudder that I used on my 750. Best wishes and good luck.

Great, I found the same model on ebay with shipping to Italy; my main problem is that I can't find things correctly because I can't find the right name in English.

Thank you to both of you, my boat will sail soon :)
