    Some photos of how I have laid out the various components in the compartments. I have my Lipo battery mounted laterally against the bulkhead in the cabin at the rear of wheelhouse (battery not shown). The battery is placed between the water-cooled ESC and the bulkhead. They are held in place with velcro as well as the extra battery box and RX box. I'm using a 3 bladed prop with a pro drive 35-42 brushless motor with a Viper 50amp water cooled ESC. The battery is a 3 cell 2200mah 11.1v Overlander battery. The RX is held in foam in an old business card plastic case along with a electronic switch to switch on the spotlight. In the aft compartment with the rudder is a 6v AAA battery box for the searchlight. When not in use, I keep the lipo battery in a fire proof bag inside a metal petty cash box for safety!๐Ÿ˜Š

    Looking at the photos there are a few changes to the kit from over 50 years ago. My kit didn't have the holes in the bottom of the bulkheads. Also the shape of the front wheelhouse windows are more rounded in the corners. I found this out when I ordered the window frame kit from SLEC. When I mentioned this to them they asked me to trace around the window frames and they made me a new set for just a couple of pounds. Brilliant! I'll be interested to see any other minor modifications. Cheers Duncan

    ๐ŸŽฌ RC Maiami, a bit of fun on the estuary
    3 months 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!
