Vanguard up date :- hhmm not so good radio failure happened again not sure if its rf interference from the motor or the BEC not providing enough power to operate all the servos or a problem with the radio I have swaped out the receiver once for a known good one will have to pop to Maplin and pick up a couple of ferrite rings trythat first then work through everything else

Richard do`s your offer of some blue foam still stand if so how much do you want for some mate ??

Of course the offer still stands mate, pm me your address and how much you want...it's in sections 3"x3"x24". Two or three lengths be enough? I want nothing for it Mark, I got it for free so you can have some for free.
