I believe this controller has three 'speed steps'? - Rather than being fully proportional..Before I set about making a dummy AA cell (I have swotted up on Utube) I can see how 5 cells will reduce the speed of the train but how will that control the sudden start and stop please?
So it will give 1/3, 2/3, or full 'power' (voltage, presumably) to the system. These will be fixed-steps, proportional to the overall voltage supplied, so with one less cell, 'full-speed' will be lower, as will the other two steps.
This should not make any difference, though convention would be to put it at one end, or the other, of the string of batteries.And does it make any difference whereabouts the dummy cell is in the pack of 6 batteries please?
