I have noticed although out of stock Hobbyking do a combined servo and esc block at 10gms with lead which may be suitable as a replacement for my duff unit in the vapour. The unit at around £17 is far cheaper than the also unavailable original product. Has anyone else experience of these matters?. Cheers Stuart Marsden

Take a good selection of close up photos Stuart, of the Vapor installation, and any other you may do in future

It is easy to loose track once your block is out, which way it goes back in, and the wiring

The motor wires are desoldered from the U/S block

And soldered into two holes at the end of the new block

Files can be downloaded from the block sales page.

These blocks can be used in self builds of the order of 50grm

Watch out, as mine was DSM2, and I keep a Tx for these

Many thanks for this, it is definitely becoming a throw away society. It appears it is as cheap to buy another model and pinch the gear! Once Fairbanks and I probably have a go.

They are not out of stock at Steve Webb's (Servoshop) as 2 arrived from there today. They are 25 quid though.
