Making the RC @3DBenchy by Thullen: Part 1, Electronics

A few weeks ago at 3D Meetup Sweden I saw the RC Benchy designed by Thullen. Once I saw it I thought it was a great project, and as such I decided to build one.
Today we are looking at the first part of this series, a overview of the electronics in the boat.

In the upcoming video’s we will be glueing, painting and putting it togeter/testing it.
