Tekin RS Speed Control and HotWire – part 1

September 27th, 2009 by Trevor Coult

Recently I decided that I ought to start preparing myself for the move to LiPo in 12th scale, as and when I can afford the parts. the first thing I decided to get was a new speed control as I can use it with the rest of my current set up. I wanted one with 1S LiPo cut off and also was updatable as the rate of speed control development is astonishing at the moment. After looking at many posts on forums, talking to drivers and browsing web sites I decided to buy the Tekin RS speed control along with the HotWire computer interface.

Fusion Hobbies had both the RS and HotWire in stock at a really good price. I have used them previously and their service has been really good in the past so I had no hesitation in ordering from them. That and the fact you get a free packet of Starmix Sweets with every order! I had the choice between buying the RS or RS Pro version of the speed control but as I’m likely to only be using it with a 10.5 brushless motor I decided to buy the RS version saving me £40 in the process. This is good down to a 5 turn brushless so I’m not likely to going anywhere near it’s limits. Tekin are distributed by Much More Racing in the UK, so most good model shops should be able to supply them.

National Nattering – 12th Chesterfield 08-09

September 23rd, 2008 by Trevor Coult

I didn't really think there was much point in doing a conventional report on the nationals this season as Keith (Robertson) does a pretty good job for RRCI. There's always a few things to talk about that might not make it to a magazine report though, so I though that'd be better.

On to the first 12th national of the season at my home club, CARS.

A few bits and pieces related to this now.

The tech charts for the Chesterfield national are here.

The stock A final video is here.

The sports modifed A final video is here.

The open modified A final video is here.

Pictures are here.
