S 100 Schnellboot RC build - Posted: 21st May 2018
After a long time I am back trying to get a boat in the water, I have an old 32nd Parallel kit in mothballs unfinished. So to take an easier route I am converting an S 100 Italeria Schnellboot . Very slow going as there is little to no support locally so with out the net all would be lost......Given my current disability, this will be a 90/90 build , she will look good at 90 feet or 90 mph which ever works best....

I have a liking for Italeri kits myself. Built the Vosper MTB in 2011 then the PT 109 a few years later. They really perform well either with single or triple props.

Both of mine have 480 brushed motors, single props, and 2s Lipo 2200mAh. Ideal for small ponds where you can maintain scale speeds and if easy on the throttle you can have a decent endurance before the battery goes flat.

Hi Doug yes I did try the three prop set up first MFA 385's if I remember correctly running on a electronize 30 speed controler.but replaced them with a Graupner eco 500 I think ?

I am doing a lot of reading of posts online many back when this kit was new to the market.... as to my motor choice I winged it as I am not sure of what the motor sizes list here (300,500... etc etc) but did read a rule of thumb in that props should be equal to or better yet less than the diameter of said motor , so with brut strength and ignorance I have 3 Hobbyking ST3007, 1100KV that and a goal of keeping it light , thou I think I have read that 3.3 kg was ideal for scale ?....Again a 90/90 build , having lost all feelings in both hands from spinal stenosis I must accept what I can do now to what I once did or able to do with just a little more effort... Thank You All for your posts and help , and posting of videos online they bring me great pleasure and enjoyment ....Thank You
