    ๐ŸŽฌ FAIRACRE BROADS CRUISER, NEW MOTOR AND ESC
    4 months ago by jbkiwi ( Fleet Admiral)
    Flag
    Fitted the new 550 45T brushed motor as a replacement for the ancient and slow 70s Graupner monoperm. Goes a lot better now and has a decent speed range. Handles and rides quite well for a skinny boat. Prop is a Graupner 40mm 2 blade (don't know the pitch, -fairly fine) Using a 2200mAh 2S LiPo battery which probably gives around an hours running slowly, or 30 mins of hooning around.

    Battery was only charged to 8.25v and ended up at 7.7v. (45%) after about 3/4 hr. I'll probably fit a Hobbywing ESC as well, for a bit better reverse action, as the El cheapo car one is a bit slow finding reverse at times.

    4 months ago by Rogal118 ( Chief Petty Officer 1st Class)
    Flag
    Typical yorkshire weather, after 5 minutes it chucked it down so had to make a quick retreat. used just one 2200 3s lipo for now but need a bigger lake/pond really as can only give full power for 3-4 seconds, so stop -go is not good but was hoping to get some good photos-videos, but the rain stopped play till another day.
    Edit, forgot to mention. most of run on centre prop only. the last 5 seconds or so is full power, well nearly.

    Looks good Roger,
    Whilst the comments on paralleling LI-POs are correct. I have never had an issue. I have used two identical cells and fully charge each separately until the charger cuts out.
    Would never try two partially discharged cells as then the current might flow from one to the other creating the overcharge rate problem
    Recently decided that rather than use two cells, why not use one at once? This reduces weight and eliminates the concern.
    Think you need a larger pond! Glad to see the weather is consistent with my memorys.

    MODEL BOAT SAILING - AT BUGSWORTH BASIN
    Bugsworth Canal Basin, the head of navigation of the Peak Forest Canal, was the largest and busiest inland port on Britainโ€™s narrow canal system and the only one to survive intact. Famous canal and tramway engineer, Benjamin Outram, built the 14 mile long Peak Forest Canal from Dukinfield to Bugsworth, although plans to extend to Chapel Milton via Whitehough were never realised. Construction of the six mile Peak Forest Tramway in 1795 linked Bugsworth Basin to the limestone and gritstone quarries in Derbyshire, and the canal linked Bugsworth to Manchester and the trans-Pennine canal network.

    Its correct in every respect and its the correct texture too.
    Every single part of the kit was drawn in 3D cad (123D Design) and produced on a Forms2 3D printer. Then everything was scaled down to 1/16th scale and thse are now available from Tony Bakewell, the new owner of Speedline Models. See facebook๐Ÿ‘

    I really like this and the mechanics for the realistic rowing action, not forgetting the really nice planking and fine detail on the boat. Upon looking at the expression on the rower's face, I was wondering if he suffers from Piles?
