battery charging by Trillium Commander   Posted: 3 hours ago
I have a related but different question. I have 2 battery packs each comprising 5 new AA NiMH batteries of 2550mAh capacity of a well-regarded and long-established manufacturer. They are not charging up to their rated capacity. I have put them through 6 or 7 charge/discharge cycles and the maximum charge they will take is 1200mAh. The packs will charge to full voltage, around 6.8V, and I discharge them down to 6V. More than one cell must be defective for it to be only half capacity, and how likely is that. Are there any other techniques that might restore the capacity, or are they forever stuck at 1200mAh? Roy

Precedent Huntsman 34" by colinhubbard Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 hours ago
Sorry to throw mud in your water, but if it's a huntsman it could be 28 , 31, or 32 ft the same applied to swordsman. But who care's as most of the kit form boats where 1/11th scale. My wife uses 1/12th scale figures from her dolls house days in her Huntsman.

battery charging by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 hours ago
Hi nutrunner and Mark If this is a NiMh or NiCad battery I suspect if it is completely flat and has been stored for some years in this condition it will not take a charge. My experience is that even if you can split the battery and resurrect each cell they will never hold any voltage under load. If you can find the local club you mentioned in another post there will be an expert available who will advise the best way forward. I suspect your best option is to buy a new battery. Model cars and planes use the same batteries and there will be a local shop. Good luck Dave

Hi nutrunner I used to live on the Wirral and there are several clubs nearby. There is one at E Port, they used to sail in the top lock basin on Sunday mornings. New Brighton has a club as does Hoylake, at the Lifeboat station and West Kirby in the park. Runcorn also has a club. E port cover a fairly wide area so not sure which of the above might be nearest. All have friendly members who will help you with your new venture. Dave

Precedent Huntsman 34" by canabus Lieutenant   Posted: 12 hours ago
Hi All Adding a few more pics!!! New driveline arrived this week. Funny scale to build a boat at as the real one is 31 and1/2 foot and this is 34", also the cockpit area is shorter and the rear cabin is longer. Canabus

Precedent Huntsman 34" by canabus Lieutenant   Posted: 13 hours ago
Hi All I bought this boat as a unfinished project with an used radio and Merco 40 motor. Sold the motor with the new electric starter and started pulling the boat apart. Removed all the old driveline etc. Repaired the forward deck and removed the paint. Stripping down the cabin to repaint, also removing cockpit floor and seats.

Hello! In my case, I use vinyl car decorative stripes. Ebay offers them very cheap, less than US$4.00 with shipping and everything. Once I apply them, I use a hairdryer to melt the vinyl a little bit. With this method they stick very well.

Still in DC but getting back to Germany in early December. Looking forward for a meeting with you and any other model boat rebel upon my return.😁
