    Aero-naut pilot
    Hi Ronaldo, I know Cormorant "Steve". Built the Aero-naut pilot boat! Some time back maybe he made his spot light to work! You can try to PM him and ask him if he did? Cheers, Ed

    transmitter information
    Hi Mariner, On the associated RX there should be socket marked 'BIND' or possibly 'BIND/BATT'. That's where you plug your 'lanyard' in for the binding process. It's only a shorting plug between the signal pin and ground which tells the RX to go in to binding mode. Can you post the make and model number of your TX and RX please. I may have the manuals in my archive. But the binding process is essentially the same for all 2.4GHz sets. It's necessary so that your RX knows the signature, and hence hopping sequence, of your TX and will only respond to that and no others. Cheers, Doug 😎

    Occre Ulises
    this one nearly finished.
    Ollie "G"
    Based on the kit Ayton Cross by Mobile Marine and dedicated to my two grandsons. I have added a working winch for towing aft, two working radars off the mast , running/ navigation, towing , wheelhouse and deck lights. Raboesch 19x22 bow thruster and sound system from Component Shop representing twin deisels. The two main 15amp ESC's are Electronize (unfortunately out of business now). The hull is GRP with wooden superstructure.
    Formidable, LT100.
    Wooden Drifter Trawler, Formidable, LT100. Scale 1:24th. Long term build. Work boat built first
    RO-Marin Neptun
    Christmas present last year, built over a couple of months of weeknights and days off. I’m real pleased with her, the kit was well thought out and the instructions and documentation were more than adequate to get her built. Krick has done a fine job of resurrecting the old Robbe line. I need to add ballast to the stern and rig/flag the mast, but for all intents and purposes she’s done, ready to play.
    Royal Daffodil ex OVERCHURCH
    After a complete refurb the Overchurch was renamed the Royal Daffodil. My model depicted here is scratch built on fiberglass hull to 1/48 scale. She now rests in my workshop next to the original Daffodil circa 1918 after she gained the "Royal" status for her role in the raid on Zebruggee in WW1 1918 together with her sister ship the Iris. The current Royal Daffodil rests in Vittoria Dock Birkenhead laid up and will not again see any service again.
    PT 109
    Scratch build from photos and old Elco plans. working spot and port, starboard lights. everything made except from people which was a racing car pit crew team.
    HMS DAFFODIL 1918 later to become Royal Daffodil
    HMS Daffodil fitted with armour for WW1 raid on Zeebrugge in 1918. Scratch built on fiberglass hull. No plans, just from old photos. The Mersey Ferry requisitioned by Admiralty and later to become Royal Daffodil in recognition of her actions at the Zeebrugge raid.
