Faller Power Tower FA140325 - Construction Log January 2007

Box Contents

Note: The large wheels on the car are upside down.
Fortunately I was able to put them the right way round later.

At this point the 'cable' was added to the model. The Faller instructions and diagrams can be a little confusing so I've produced an Alternative Threading Guide.

Once the cable was added, the first test runs were now performed.
I found that when the instructions were followed, the lower reed switch was
far too low down for it to cause the magnet on the car to break the circuit
and stop the car correctly at the end of a run. I had to raise the switch by several millimeters.

I've added a >>Start<< button to the Control Box
