Intention is to supply a 'kit' of receiver + soundcard, ready to go (as best I can).

One of a couple of 'kits to do stuff' I am hoping to make available...

But don't hold your breath!

Very nice Phil, great idea :thumbup:

Re: Hunslet " Britomart"

Thanks Steve. I've seen that pic but never looked through to the back ! ...which begs the question... Why??! :scratch: My only guess would be to let smoke / steam / heat out on colder days where you don't want the port holes open, but it is just a random guess. Not sure why you would do that on an ...

I assume YouTube for video? - Any 'gotchas', cost-implications, to this?

No gotchas with YouTube, free as you have a Google account, easiest way of doing video's IMHO.

I will leave the rest to others.

Thanks for your replies guys. I wasn't having ago at anyone in the thread and like I said I did find it interesting reading, It's OK Rod, I don't think anyone thought you was "having a go" at anyone. Electrics can be baffling that is for sure, electronics even more so, even for me. I was ...

Re: Cheapo diesel sound card

On reading this thread I am glad it's all worked out Philip, yet for me and I presume most of use who are not that well informed with electricity stuff, buying a 'Cheapo Sound Card' isn't something that would be worth it for use, possibly because we would end up blowing stuff up with all those resi...

Re: Cabbed Hunslet

Not much on this for a while, mojo isn't all that high at the moment. I have not rivited it, added detail, nor weathered it, not even added buffers, but it is as it is and makes a nice base for a loco. Other than adding buffers, that's probably as far as I will go on this for now. Sorry it isn't to ...

Re: Cheapo diesel sound card

PS. It's probably advisable to protect the link from P3 to the soundcard with a 1k resistor, or maybe even a 4.7k resistor if you're powering the soundcard with 7.4v Rik PS - Now corrected the label for the switch and added the 1k resistor to the wiring diagram (see above) I am no electrician nor t...

Re: Cheapo diesel sound card

That's pretty much the wiring I used for mine, but without the buck convertor, the sound card I bought can handle 2 x li-ion batteries (8.4v) with no issue so just run them direct from the power input of the RX.
