Control Box repairs
« on: 08, September, 2010 - 17:09:28 »
Have fixed a number of control boxes recently and have had problems finding a good replacement for the ZTX 449 - Luckly I have now managed to source some new ZTX449 so with that and all the other stuff turning up recently we should all be on the road for another 25 years !! :)
