Sound module - Posted: 29 days ago by Nobby-Clark
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.

I've just bought a futaba 6L transmitter. The plan was/ is to use a v tail mixer to enable to use both shafts independent but connected to the rudder in ahead mode. I have two e s c's. Will the controller do the job please.
Motor upgrade - Posted: 7 months ago by Nobby-Clark
Guys, hi I came down to hartsholme today to trial run the build and was made extremely welcome thanks greatly. Er motor widthThe motors are T4A from mobile marine they were extremely hot so prop size adjustment is needed.
I am building again this time an inshore mine sweeper I have 50 mm graupner props on at the moment and am looking for a pair of motors to run off 12v LAB with 15 amp speed controllers per motor but cooler with out going to big I have 50mm per motor width allowance and 70mm length. I would like to keep up speed as inshore sweepers were fairly nippy 20knots real time. Is there any recommendations please ,apart from rebuild again.
