Bought from Amazon, their return policy is astonishing in that they allow one to return "used items" ie packed up best you can with a little grubbiness due to being "tested /used"
so THAT could solve your problem. At THAT price I do believe you should expect it to -"work"!
I did this with a £900 coffee maker that was appalling. Amazon collected!!!! then refunded me, so I would do that and think (start) again.
I know YOU Ian,,,, if its broken - you should fix it.
Nowadays (with respect) if its broken send it back, IMHO.
I dont like doing it and Amazon currently unfairly biases it AGAINST suppliers.
IMHO. ;)

General / Off topic: Chinese crane remote
« Last post by Ian Brooks on Aug 05, 2022, 7:53 am »

Does anyone have knowledge of these F21-2S crane remote control s? Specifically, any idea why two of them simply stop communicating with the remote fob after a few days of working fine?

Like this:

Ive ordered a different style (the ones that failed both looked the same but were different inside, obviously from different factories.

Any ideas? I’m back to the pendant now!

I’ve been watching some of this series

If the link doesn’t work, it’s called. “ 1500 miles in a tiny speedboat#13- to Scotland “.

It’s about 2 chaps going around the uk coast in a small RIB..
The link will take you to the Scottish bit where they come up the coast.
They go past Bute and up Loch Fyne.
Places that some of you will find familiar.
Hope you find it interesting.

Headed over to loch Fyne on Thursday, met John at log house base camp.
Managed a short trip to Otterferry and back, the oystercatcher had Workbench on tap 🤗.
Friday, we headed south ultimately ending up in Skipness looking across towards Arran. After eating and observing a possible fog bank heading our way we set off for home, not before an ice cream in Tarbert. It was pleasant sitting in Tarbert harbour, quite warm. On leaving the harbour we had to negotiate some young sailers being coached at the harbour entrance, probably not the best place to learn the art of sailing with liesure and commercial traffic passing in and out, it looked good fun though.
From Tarbert we set for Otterferry for refreshment and the final leg home.
We did a cycle run from Salaan bay up to the b road towards Millhouse, the hill down to Millhouse was too steep for me to consider as the return back up didn't look fun!
Highlight of the trip for me was seeing a basking shark close up, as I had taken a different course across from Salaan to Skipness it was too far for John to get to my location in time, small regret was not taking a picture of this amazing creature.
Saturday I did a solo trip to inveraray and back with some interesting heavy chop on the return near the caravan park which gradually and unexpectedly subsided before getting back to the loghouse where John had been repairing and testing the boats engine.
The weather deteriorated cutting short any further trips with torrential rain falling in the evening.
As ever it was worth the traveling, around 100 miles covered on the water.
