Hi all

Just in case you missed Richardtheforth's post in "Bargains" here's one not to miss if you're thinking of going digital. Link
- £12 p&p to France (& Europe?).

PS I don't have any shares in Amazon ... yet!

Although problems are the exception, not the rule, if the set is for anyone else but you, I suggest you open and test the important pieces prior to the big day. Last thing you want is to discover a bad car, PSU, lane changer, or lord forbid, the APB. If you find a bad part, there's still time to get a warranty replacement from Hornby, maybe, but at the very least you can mitigate any disappointment by steering around any problems.
I have mixed feelings. I don't NEED one, but it is a great deal. If the quantity is limited, though, I'd prefer the sets be purchased by people who don't already have SSD, or the APB, or any slots at all. The sad truth, though, is that it's just as likely that people/businesses will buy them and sell them at a markup later on.

QUOTE (Stig95 @ 22 Dec 2015, 05:07) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Is this worth buying as we have ARC Pro release dates now? Still firmly on the fence on this one. Probably worth if for the cars and track but the Powerbase looks like a PITA to setup for a 6-7 year old.

We have ARC Pro release dates? When? Where did you see them?

The base CAN be a PITA, but in truth a 6-7 year old can easily:
1) hold the enter button for a few seconds, then press the brake button to pair a car to his controller
2) press the big "START" button to run a 20 lap GP race, which is the default race.

The rest of the menu system is not needed, especially if you take a few minutes to set up the car speed limits before hand, if you feel the need to do so.
