A dig through the stores
I now have a speed control, motor, prop, propshaft, servo and rudder. There's a receiver in my new (OK, bought for Christmas and not used yet) radio set. A battery will be nabbed from the drawer, I'm not having jelly cells posted 'cos they weight a ton.
Some of this stuff was bought for other projects and will need to be replaced, but not for the moment. It doesn't do to hang on to some bits anyway, the world moves on and they never find a use. Anyone need a 26meg receiver? Not anymore.
One of the advantages of being in a hobby for a while is you build up component stocks. I remember when first working in 3mm scale model railways, it was a nightmare as every project required a buying session before I could get stuck in. Definitely a disincentive to trying something new.
Thanks to all those who clicked on the ads, they don't pay a lot, but I've pretty much covered the speed control already!
