RC Helicopter flying, RC Cars and RC boating

Made for other people and me to track what I am doing when with my remote controlled units. It started out with helicopters. Hence the name.

If only one of my units is of interest, this unit can be clicked on the right and only posts regarding that unit shows up.

Some pictures of the Sub build

Now I have mounted the motor, the receiver and an on-off switch. I have taken the Futaba switch apart as it wasn’t really suitable with the wiring. Instead I will use the switch for the main power to both the ESC and through the ESC’s BEC also the receiver. Using the switch allows me to turn the sub on and off from the outside of the submarine. I still need to do some soldering and some extra wire to get the switch integrated though.

I also mounted the receiver antenna in the frame. I drilled a few holes around the frame and pulled the antenna through so now the antenna follows the edge of the board. The only thing I am worried about is if the antenna will be too close to the ESC.

Here are some pictures of the build:
