Re: Complete starter, follow my progress

I am back. My goodness has it been this long? Well, I have spent the week back in the loft sorting things out, putting some bits on eBay and looking for some new stuff in the local shop.

I hope to get this thread updated soon :)

It LIVES... Just call me Dr Frankenstein! I stripped it down to bare parts, little pieces falling out left right and centre. There was a short due to unknown cause somewhere but the motor was fine when tested alone so simply cleaned everything and slowly rebuilt, testing every stage. Finally decided...

Okay, done th video but used my Nokia N95 as picture quality is better than my Fuji Cam! Unfortunatly that means it is in MP4 format and hence is best viewed with Apple Player. Ermmm, another point is it is 24.5MB (Broadband customers only please) for only 1 minute 27 secs of footage! If anyone can ...
