New Skyleader retro single channel transmitter

Post by RON » 06 Sep 2019, 21:07

Hi

Here is a video of my latest project, Its a Skyleader single channel transmitter,
Now, before you say..., I know Skyleader didn't make a S/C set, this is my take on it.
Using Phil_G's S/C encoder and one of the yellow mini OLED screens.
Not quite finished, needs a bit of tidying up but you get the idea

You insist on making things that didn't exist, don't you? :lol:

One word: Art.

Thanks Bruno,

Your right, I love making none existent stuff, I’m trying to imagine where single channel would be now if Mr Propo hadn’t come along when he did. :D

Plus, why make stuff that already exists, no fun in that.
For some strange reason, I’m really fancying building a boat for SC, might even build a custom made transmitter for it too, with port and starboard on it instead of left/right
I need to get a copy of that model boats mag with the Sc installation thread.
