    • Hi Joe, thanks for the input. I will pass this onto JK.

    • Press and hold #9 to increase volume, press and hold #7 to decrease volume would make more sense.

    • Revo update.

      I asked JK for variable sound volume and he said YES!!  I explained how Dallee and Phoenix offer this capability.  In the next revision of the receiver firmware he will add it. Not sure when or what buttons he will choose. I suggested using button 9. Press and hold  for increase volume and press and hold to lower volume. 

      What would you guys like to see?

    • Hi Steve, you will need to get the USB programmer to update your REVO RX.  After you get one or borrow one, download the USB program from Precision R/C web site.  Next download the SD60 and SD33eco files. 

      To use the USB programmer follow the one page instructions. It is a two step procedure to upload new sounds.


      Enjoy, Don

    • Yea!   Now, how do I upload it?

    • Hi Guys and ladies. Here is an update to the REVO RX.

      Sounds SD60 and SD33eco now have a manual horn. Use button 4!!!

      When using the USB programmer remember to press reset to load another sound and if necessary remove the USB programmer and reinsert if it will not load another sound. 

      I keep asking for variable sound level not three steps but we got a manual horn.

    • Yes, that's right, Fred! I have been able to 3D print an Aristocraft Mallet Pilot, 21500-166. At first, the replacement part was made in several pieces before final assembly. Now, with my 3rd 3D printer, I am able to print it in one piece. 

      The new part is made with thicker vertical posts and has a brace running under the grill bars of the pilot to strengthen it further. It is also possible to mount it to the locomotive with 4 screws rather than just 2. These improvements should make the part stand up better from the odd branch, rock or debris lying on the track. 

      Photos are in a new album I just uploaded.

      This printer is a Wanao Duplicator7 Plus.

    • Its great the Gilbert is providing us with the parts that we need for our hobby. And he did a really good job on all of the parts that I have ordered from him.

    • Gilbert at GLX, now has brake wheels...if you have a particular style/type you want...send Gilbert a sample and he may be able to produce them for you.

        I have seen two styles similar to the Old Aristo ones...

    • Sean, thank you for understanding me and not taking it as confrontive.

      It's funny there is no convenient place to put a link.. or a "masthead"...

      I think the best thing the moderator could do is put a sticky in the forum and embed a link in the text, and probably bold it.. I think you might be able to do this so you just clicked the sticky topic.

    • In better times, the answer would be an advertisement w/link above the list. Now you have provided.

    • Greg

      Now that you ask ..good question

      I looked back to all the venders threads .. no site links offered

      I wonder if each moderator should have a short intro and a link to there website in there signature .. like you have.. 


    • March 29, 2018 12:10 AM EDT
    • Where did you want it? on a sticky thread? I'm not sure where you could make it convenient....



    • March 28, 2018 7:11 AM EDT
    • Thanks Greg

      The reason I posted this ... you would think if I ( RDL Hobbies ) had this section I would of had a link to the site.

      Greg I capable of doing as you suggested.. :  Thanks again

      I was hoping ( RDL Hobbies ) would notice the missing link..  and add it to the beginning of his section..

    • Cool!

      I've been sort of shopping around for our "mainline" loco following the demise of our LGB 0-6-2T that would look "right" on our free-lanced "Hawaii inspired" Triple O.  I am taking the guide for the real 3' gauge OR&L and the plantations it served, bracketing the 1880-1920 time period.  I understand PIKO, like LGB, has a bit of a "gummi ruler," which is OK by me, if it looks "right." Never having seen this locos in person, I was just wondering if either the tank engine or mogul might allow me to "Americanize" the line a bit.  

      For the record, I am also weighing HLW's 4-4-0 (the OR&L had two that served for nearly the whole life of the road) and LGB's Forney (Almost all of my stuff is LGB, and all but one works after 30+ years, 15 or so in deep storage.).  All curves are LGB's smallest radius, which I believe is 4'.


      Thanks, now off to work on my Mik's challenge!
