Sound module (2 days ago)
Hartsholme Electric Model Boat Club
Hi I’m now on with hms Brinton , coastal mine hunter my last ship in RN. Does anyone have a sound module that’s is programmable so I can put on the Napier Deltic , or does anyone know how to build in the sound please. They’re too expensive on line and the Deltic one they’re selling sounds nothing like the real thing.
Happy New Year all by the way. Back sailing soon as stitches healed and I can bend. Nobby
Hi, I just emailed the waterways museum regards this year's spring model boat show and before I book my flights to the UK. Their terse response was that they will not be hosting the show this year or for the foreseeable future. Do you know if it will go ahead this year, and if so when and where ? Many thanks aleks
The Torbay club no longer exists, the club had trouble with a rogue swan who had made its home on the small pond and was rather aggressive towards members of the public and damaged models being sailed on the water. Council were not interested in removing the problem and members started to disappear, some joined the Exeter club who sail up in the Teign valley at Canonteign Falls. Sailing on the larger pond at Youngs park is possible out of season or after 6pm during the season because of the pedal boats not operating. I don't think the council can ban the use of models on the ponds as it is a public park and signage would have to be in place. It was purpose built for the use of sailing model yachts in the 1930's.
What an absolute travesty, the wild life fraternity seen always to have the councils support, although I am in support of wildlife issues I sometimes think it is taken to extremes to the detriment of other equally important issues. I am currently having wildlife V model boats sailing issues in Leeds, we can only keep battling on, don't give up.
Our club recently held a sunset sailing session, its surprising how a cheap set of battery powered lights from a pound shop can add yet another world to r/c boat sailing, so why not have a go at your club too, great fun cheap to do and once finished, you can remove the lights ready for regular sailing.

The Winnipeg Model Boat Club was formed in 1994 by a group of enthusiasts. We build model boats of various scales and subjects, both operational and static. While not specifically a radio control club, many of our members enjoy outfitting their boats for radio control operation. We are a noncompetitive club. On Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings throughout the spring, summer and autumn, our members can be found sailing their boats at the Riley Family Duck Pond in Assiniboine Park. In winter, we meet monthly and talk about all things model boat-related as well as discuss current projects and plans. Our annual regatta is held in May at the Riley Family Duck Pond. We also take part in a number of public displays throughout the year at HMCS Chippawa, the Red River Exhibition and the Mega Train Show.
For more information about the club or how to become a member, please contact us.
We also proudly support: Naval Museum of Manitoba HMCS Chippawa 1 Navy Way, Winnipeg, MB Canada
