Not very difficult to do. Got it at the motor shop locally. Dude
looked at me as if I'd three heads when I told him what I wanted and
what for.

Three wires: One for motor left winding another for motor right
winding and one return. Not very complex.

Have fun playing. It's already broken. What could happen?

> I saw that the difference between the two Control Box is the Azimuth Display, that the G-5400B one has on the left and on the right side of the display: 180 S, while the G-5500 one has on the left side of the display: 0 N and on the right side of the display 90 E.
