    ๐ŸŽฌ RC Maiami, a bit of fun on the estuary
    14 days ago by jbkiwi ( Fleet Admiral)
    Flag
    Just a simple model I built for my son about 14yrs ago. He wasn't interested (more into computers) so I use it for the salt water. Just a brass shaft and 12v high speed 380 motor, runs quite well. Ran it to try out the new 4K camera, (set on 1920x1080) but had to convert the vid from MOV to MP4 to edit it, so it reduced the clarity a bit. At least it doesn't have a blurry bit in the middle of the lens like my 10yr old one. have to figure out a better way, (or get a better editor)

    This might be clearer https://youtu.be/_gA_aiwfRWc

    Thanks for the info on your model, Dave. I thoroughly agree that the 50/60's models of the 'RAF Navy' vessels have a lot going for them. There's nothing nicer than a planing hull and two hot brushless!

    Hi wunwinlo
    This was built by another club member and sold on when he finished sailing models so we do not have the plan. It is a model of a Sea Plane tender and was probably built in the 1960's. It could have been a kit from the Maycraft stable or even Veron but also possibly built from a plan in Model Boats or its predecessors. Doug replaced the brushed 550 motors with two 2028 brushless arounf 1000Kv with scale 3 blade brass props and 11.1v LiPo 2200Ma. Models from this period are very nostalgic and I look forward to seeing your model some time in the future,
    Cheers

    hI, I like your model. Is it from the old Precision Models kit for the High Speed Patrol Launch? It looks very similar. I bought a similar model at auction two month'ago. I am giving it a refit and upgrade. The huge old brushed motor is coming out, replaced by two brushless, all the windows will be glazed and the lights reconnected. Got a lot on at the moment, so it might be an while, so don't hold your breath! If it is t he Precision Models kit and you have a copy of the draaeing, Iwould very much like a copy. Naturally, I will fully reimburse you

    At first I was surprised to see you with boats on open water in Canada.
    This week we finally have open water in Central MN, but it was just on the news that there is still 18" of ice on the lakes in northern MN.
    THEN, I looked at a map and realized that you are considerably south of me. Basically as far south as the MN Iowa border.
    OK, I'm jealous! I want to be able to play on the lake with my toy boats too!
