    Originally built in the late 1950's by my dad, and rescued from his attic 22 years ago, it had major delamination problems, a seized propshaft, no rc kit only an ancient Taycol Supermarine motor which was ready for the scrap bin, but Doug in Munich offered to resurrect it, and I was actually amazed at how efficient it is now its refitted along with the special Doug converter box.
    25amp water cooled esc, flysky 6 channel rx. All ppowered by the 12 volt 7amp hour battery.

    Another Sea Commander back in action can only be a good thing!

    Classic r/c model boats need to be seen out on the water.

    Generations have missed seeing and making Aerokits models and many will be seeing them for the first time - mostly thanks to those of us that make the effort to restore and keep them afloat and in the public eye.

    Well done Colin ๐Ÿ‘

    Thanks Doug, no way but forward now, as you say I've had to wait a long time to get her on the water again.
    But now as hopefully my health improves I'll get to finish it. The motor is super quiet in use, and runs so smoothly right down to 52rpm.
    I might even fit my other Supermarine in my other sea commander as I think it is running at a much truer scale speed.
    I'm using singer sewing machine oil for the brushes.
    Thanks again shipmate for your help in restoring the motor.
    Did you do anything with the KG V.
    Cheers Colin.
