    Are you talking about batteries? If so, I am undecided at this point. The person who gave the model to me had two 12V sealed lead acid batteries in it. They are dead and are hard to dispose of. (I still have them along with a few others from my PC back-up systems.)

    I'm still quite a way from deciding. Most pumps (for the fire3 monitors) look like they are 12V and that might be the requirement. I do like the Hobbywing 1060's ESCs but I don't think they will handle the 12V batteries. I might fiddle with some 9.6V hump-back hobby batteries to see if the pumps work sufficiently. I will be using only two fire monitors as the lengthened (modern) version of the Dusseldorf FLB-2 only has two monitors.

    I attached a schematic/diagram that I had been working on as a reference. This will most likely change drastically.

    I uploaded three photos of the Dusseldorf FLB-2 (fire boat) to my harbor's Dusseldorf section. This shows a comparison of the original superstructure (Robbe/Krick) and what I derived from photos. Some differences are quite noticeable like the three large windscreens on the kit versus the five smaller windscreens like on the real fire boat.

    Had to set this rebuild aside for a bit while I get some other work done. Ah! - it never ends.

    At the bottom is an excerpt from the Krick instruction manual for the Dusseldorf fire boat. That is based on an 8 channel Futaba F-14 radio with a "multiswitch system". I don't know if or how many people actually use this setup, as it is kind of ancient now. Probably better and easier to use one of the moderate priced 14-18 channel radios so each switch/control on the transmitter has its own function.

    Whenever (if?) I get done with totally updating (eliminating the no-to-scale superstructure that Robbe came up with) my Dusseldorf FLB-2 - that is what I am planning to do.

    YOU can do it, think of pleasure with those fire monitors working and spinning on spot with engines , 1 ahead , 1 astern monitors going , just like real thing and proudly think to yourself I did that, go for it. Suggest taking picks before striping anything out and drawings and notes have done a few of those both models and big boats , if in doubt stop have a cuppa and look at the problem solves it most times and you have tapped into so many of us on this site one of us must have had that problem and will have a fix, do not be afraid to seek help, if you dont know, its not a stupid question, good luck Stephen.
