Hi One & All
Thinking on the battery I am just going to leave it were it is, make up some new leads so that when it needs a charge I can just plug in a charging lead, O.K it means that I will have lost a 6 volt battery but in the end I will have saved some building time,

I have now got a small 6 volt smoke unit for her, unfortunately it is an oil type never mind.

Hi One & All

I have now come to the decision that I am not at all happy with the way this build is going, so I am just going to take a rest from it, I may come back to it at some point in time but for now it will be sent to the back of the yard ( to the end of the garage).

Hi,
I don't know if I missed part of the battery/accu diskussion, but dealing with 6V you can also use 2S LiFePO, they should be as safe as NiMH cells and can be much smaller:

I use these:

(unfortunately they are out of stock at the moment, but I'm running the 9.5 Lifeboat from Graupner with them, 2nd year now, never had problems)

They are much lighter and smaller in size than NiMH (even 5 cells).

Best, Joerg

Hi Joerg

Thank you for your suggestion with regards to the battery's, its just that I seem to have problems along the way, most of them have been down to me, so it is time to take a step back and recharge my self.
