    RC equipment query
    Hi Allen, I use a Fly Sky FS-TH9X 8 channel 2.4 GHz transmitter. And by purchasing a few receivers you can program different boats and functions so you can use the one Transmitter for several boats. So as you say you will be using 2 channels but with this system you can grow to using more channels. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-9x-9ch-transmitter-w-module-ia8-receiver-mode-1-afdhs-2a-system.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=google_gb_shopping&countrycode=GB&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIuYLm443R8AIVgQsGAB3xZg-MEAQYAyABEgIgpvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&___store=en_us You can purchase this system from other places just look around.

    Battery issues
    Thanks I have two but both use twin 8 channel receivers and fully independent port and starboard control. The Speedline model shown has modified speed line jet drives so they don't leak and can be lubricated πŸ˜‚ My other which is in my Harbour and is a MBD semi scratch build that uses jet drives developed by OceanWorks in Hong Kong with my help. Far superior product 😎

    any body recognise this boat.
    Well Jim, I searched as many places I can think of but the boat is still a mystery to me. Although it looks like a ready to run boat as opposed to being a kit, I have a couple in my collection but they are from the 60's and 70's, yours looks to be probably late nineties onwards. Are there any makers marks, logos or numbers anywhere inside. It's a lovely looking boat whatever it is, cheers Colin.

    Boat Harbour
    To come
    Scratch built Steam launch. The plant was in my first steam build never happy with the final job.
    RNXS Exploit
    Scratch built, fibreglass hull, ply superstructure. Refurbished last year new brushless gear.
    Tenby Lifeboat.
    Based on a Speedline 1/12 kit, this was my 1st big build, took 3 years ish πŸ‘
    The Morrell, Shannon class Lifeboat.
    Based on a 1/12 Speedline kit. I’ve been building her on and off for a couple of years, not far off now 😁
    Midwest dinghy 1:12 scale
    This was produced to complement the Maine Boothbay Lobster boat that is also in my harbour. Although obsolete they can still be found occasionally on eBay at high prices usually
    1:32 scratch built RIB
    This is still in progress but I thought I would extract the photos from the huge gallery that is my stevns arctic build. No one sells anything appropriate for my need so making it was the only option. A friend sent me the outboard but I must stress he does not do it for anyone. So it’s all styrene and the outer is made from mitred pieces of tube attached to the floor with an upward curve. Then a keel is fitted to affix the bottom skins to. The photos say more than words and I will add more through to completion.
    Billing Boats Pearl Harbor Hoga
    A static display model converted for RC I bought the kit off a club mate who's had it for near 20 yrs I needed a break from more intense builds I have on the go and wood is a nice change. Four weeks to build (full time) including extra details. This is fully resin coated inside and out along with 1oz glass cloth. I replaced the handrails with stainless steel rod and the whole thing is satin clear coated. Gallery has over 300 photos
    Amati Riva Aquarama
    A static display model than can be converted to RC Amati do not pay any attention to weight! If you want to sail this you need to remove as much unnecessary material as possible. Gallery currently holds 611 images. Still not completed.
