At this point in time you are much better off buying one of the ones made by wise lite, tearing it down, removing all the rough edges, refinishing it and fine tuning it to make it work reliably. trying to cobble together a receiver from all the stuff that is available is a waste of time & money. trust me I have built a few of these and they are not easy to get working reliably and to keep working.
I am not trying to dampen anyone's enthusiasm , just trying to save you a lot of frustration!!
well if thats the case, then maybe if i can at least get it welded together it can be a toy for the kids to play with, since it probably wont work anyways!
pirate,what is up with wiselite?If Im gonna spend good money on a reciever I have to do a transfer on why the hell should we have to do ANYTHING to it?To me it should run right out of the box but maybe thats the norm and I'm still learning.
