1/72 Type 22 Frigate
« on: 12 January 2024, 17:41:04 »
Hello all,

Turning to this incredible source of knowledge to help(!) with my newest RC model: Fleetscale 1/72 Type 22 Frigate (twin screws).
I've got a couple of Speed 850 motors, and a 12v lead acid battery, but nothing else so far.

Would be thrilled with input on ESC, receiver, and capacitors that would suit this setup the best. I'm also not super clear how to wire in the capacitors.

Any insights would be most helpful!

Well Simon,
You have not given us much information to go on..!

Reicever = any that match your transmitter..
ESC = any that match or is better than the voltage and ampage drawn by the motors..

As for the matter of capacitors, 47 uf from the motor terminals to the motor case, and a 100 uf between the motor terminals.. some DC motors have these capacitors built in..!!
They are only used, so as to reduce electrical noise..  which does come in handy when useing the older radio gear.. when the receiver is situated near the motor..

That said.. place the receiver as far away from electrical noise as possible..

The modern 2.4 GHz Radio gear, is not quite effected in this way..
