      Well I had thought I had explained things but maybe it was only in a way I understood.

      I'm not going to proceed with a redo on the wants/needs list until I can take photos of the yard and show a scale drawing of the yard.  This seems the most sensible approach going forward.  Since I am in the process of ripping out a number of shrubs out there I won't take photos until that is done or it will only confuse things further.

      Really, it all makes perfect sense if you live in my head.

      Thanks.

      Bart, I see a nice large back yard for that layout! I think you need to claim eminent domain!

      That must be 10 years old that photo.  Does not look like that anymore.  Larger garage now there and a second patio plus 6 trees.

      Drat! was hoping for a simple answer.... so less space and more obstructions?

      I picked up a Piko Mogul off of ebay about 18 months ago. It has been a work horse and it will take smaller radius turns ( I have 5 foot and a couple of 4 foot)  It was super simple to convert to battery/RC. I was using Del's Rail Boss 4 in it (super simple, easy to install), I just converted it to the Revo System....which was a pain in the ass as their instructions are out dated!

      Good luck

      What was wrong with the Revo instructions?

      Strange, the manuals I found on http://www.revoelectronics.com/blog/cat/manual/ seem complete and have sound...

      @Greg The sound in the manual is for an external board  (Phoenix) using the Aux harness....it says nothing about using the sound onboard the current Revo RX.

      Bob, this is because for some reason, instead of using the manuals at the beginning / top of the page, you have decided to use the OLD, NON SOUND manual at the bottom of the page, provided for people who have the original NON SOUND units.

       

      It could be identified better, but you see the date of 2016 on the manual you are talking about? Notice the manuals at the top of the page are 2017?

       

      Use the manuals at the top of the page.

       

      Greg

      Greg, I'm confused, the pdf's at the top of the page, done in 2017,  are wiring diagrams.  What have I missed?

      OK, to start, the manuals at the bottom of the page are for non-sound.... so looking at them is wrong if you have the modern revo with sound...

      That's half of it.

       

      I did not look at the manuals on the top of the page more than they were for the revo with sound. They are the right hardware... I keyed on this because he said the manual he looked at was to hook up a revo to an external sound board..

       

      Yes, it looks like the USER manuals are missing for the on board unit with sound.

       

      Weird....

       

      I think you use the super base receiver manual... on that page,  the trackside receiver is pretty much identical in function as the on board.

       

      Greg
