    A modified wooden ornament by Hannah.
    All superstructure stripped off and fitted with all electrics prop, rudder etc.
    Now a little river barge. Handles well light to carry and good in water.

    Looks good 4clubs, (tell us sometime which 4๐Ÿ˜‰)

    I note the ESC 'has no clothes on ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Is it home brew?
    Also miss the suppression capacitors on that brushed motor!
    I know folks will tell you that you don't need 'em with 2.4GHz RXs BUT
    that don't help us guys who still use 40MHz in subs cos 2.4Gigs are allergic to water, they 'fly' away from it. Or simply cos the then expensive 40Meg kit still works so why chuck it away?
    Like the crew ๐Ÿ‘"Ahoy there landlubber"!

    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi! Doug
    no the esc is not home brew, it was from ebay.
    "RC ESC 20A Brush Motor Speed Controller w/ Brake for RC Car Boat Tank" for ยฃ3.37 works well and as far as the interference suppression with capacitors; no I don't find any need for them now I'm on 2.4ghz. All my models work from the one 6 channel transmitter, and none of them have any suppressors on, although they are all brushed motors. Never had any problems.
    I don't do submarines so have no need for 40Mhz or 27 Mhz.
    I like to keep things simple!

    I suspect that the concern was not for your models, but for other people's models which may still be on a frequency susceptible to commutator RF interference, and which may be sailing near your boats....
