Hints and Tips

Radio Gear

How to avoid Interference.


1/  The first consideration when installing your Receiver into your Electrically Powered Model is to make sure it is well away from the Negative Battery terminal, and the Motor. The Magnetic field can cause stuttering type interference at times of high current draw (i.e., Fast Acceleration)

2/  Make sure the Ariel tube is long enough for the Ariel wire. The tip of this wire is highly sensitive and should be as high, and as far away from the Motor as possible (yup, its that magnetic field prob again)

3/  If all else fails, a simple tip that often works for all RC Model enthusiasts is to wrap the receiver in Aluminium Foil, to shield against any magnetic and external radio interference.

4/  As a last resort, to protect against servo twitch, try ferrite beads. (available at Radio Shack or Maplins) These are threaded over the red, white (or yellow) and black wires of each servo.

5/  If you are using a FET Servo, the installation of a choke (a small electrical component) in the positive feed wire will smooth out any current spikes and reduce the possibility of "servo twitch".

6/  Another thing you might try is a "glitch buster" or "stutter stopper". Basically, this is a capasiter that simply plugs into your Radio Receiver and attempts to keep a level voltage supply to the Radio system.

General Advice

  For those starting in Radio Controlled Racing, here are a few Hints and Tips: Firstly, buy a Kit not an RTR. That way, if something breaks you will have some idea how to fix it.
  Radio Controlled Models are easily broken. A-Arms, Wishbones and Shock Towers, are all weaknesses and must be protected. To do this you can line the body shell with polystyrene, shaped to suit the curves of your shell and held in position using Shoe Gum.
  The Steering Servo is also a weakness in crash situations, so get a Servo Saver. Also get Titanium Shafts, Turnbuckles, Drive Shafts, Dog Bones and CVD. The standard steel types are far too easily bent.
  Broken Gear teeth on Nylon / Plastic Spur Gears are a common problem, so after two or three runs check the nuts or self tapping screws that hold the Motor in position for security.
  If the Kit comes with Plastic Bushings, Hop up to a set of Shielded Ball Bearings.
