Should have plenty of room in the cab for the RC equipment.

Hi Wes  :!:


Now that looks like a speedy lil' model !  :P  :slow:  :thumb:


How much dough $$$ you got, to spend on microchips ?  [whack]


That R.C. install could run you up a nice FAT bill, if your wallet hinges are well oiled !  ;)

OR ... You could have a go 'backwoods' styleee, with more modest funds.  :cool:


Do you want to control dozens of locos at the same time ?  L:

Or just 1 ?  ???


Do you want the loco compatible with the latest iPhone technology ?  L:

Or just a simple throttle ?  ???

Pretty much the ONLY AFFORDABLE sound option, is M.R.C. 'Loco Genie' ...  :old dude:

... but some might say (possibly correctly) they don't do enough current (A) for 'G' ?

(only one way to tell for sure ... nothing like a good smoke)  :mex:


Could depend on if you just wanna haul a few mine cars on the flat ...

... or a backwoods 'Daylight' passenger consist, up 5% grades !  :Crazy:


Mmm  L:


:java::moose:


Si.

Still in design, the goal is 2%-4% grades, and typically a 3 car consist.

Loco Genie is not to be found.  MRC site has an HO version only.

cheers,

WES

Hi Wes  :wave:


That's the one !  :P


Some enterprising railroaders use 'em for other scales, believe it or not.   :shocked:
Just an idea ... I was raised by the 'great unwashed' R.C. backwoods folk.  :old dude:


The 'FlySky' option, with 'modular' E.S.C, is very affordable, no sound though.

There are plenty of BIG MONEY $$$ options ...  :cb:

... Check the Freerails R.C. Forum out.


:)

The Loco Genie is rated for 1.5 Amps. 
Not sure what G scale engines draw.

I've used RC car components and they have worked quite well.

Looking into some of the micro receivers with built-in ESC. 
Space is always an issue with my 1:35n2 locos. 
G scale should be much easier.

As far as scale is concerned even though I model in 1/35 scale,
I often use O scale parts, as well as HO and G scale stuff. 
As long as it works and looks right I'm good with it.
