HMS Solebay
« on: 11 February 2024, 16:28:31 »
Well after a break of a few years due to moving to a new house I've purchased Solebay, I had intended to try a semi-kit HMS Swiftsure but thought I'd better get back to basics first. I followed Pegasus's build of Solebay with great interest and thought "I'd like one of those" so bought one very recently. I intend to build her with dual esc's at Ron's suggestion as it will give better control in manoeuvring along with a 4/6ch rc setup. As the build progresses I hope to post some photo's of her.

I've just ordered 2 x 10 Viper marine for Solebay and I was thinking of using the Flysky FS-i6 Remote system, does anyone have experience of this set and will it be suitable ?

Flysky is a great radio as can use it to control several models with one transmitter all you have to get is a receiver and relevant servos and escs i have 2 models controlled with the one transmitter.
It gets a bit of getting to know the pairing up but once you know it its simple.

My son in law has one of theses sets..
He is happy with it..  ^^^

But just to answer your question on "suitable"..!
Any radio gear with more than two channels can be classed as suitable..

I would say it all comes down to your budget, and what could be in the future..
1. Wether more than two channels would be required..
2. Mixing of channels...
3. The posibility to store different settings for different models...
