Another crash tender - Posted: 4 years ago by topperles
Built this In early 70's . I couldn't at that time afford rc or an engine so It was a display model until around 2000.
Now, one of 18...............I'm going to have to stop , or get a bigger house ......

HI , have you some details of the petrol engine and where you got It..any problems? 💭
Response by RICLILLICO on the 7th Aug 2014
hI there the engine Is a zenaoh 26 with a clutch fitted the engine can be bought from millpond models co.uk It runs on petrol 2 stroke mix had no problems yet had too modified the boat to fit the engine as the kit was ment for electric power lol.
Response by B Newman on the 31st Jul 2015
Hi, I've just noticed your RAF RTTL. Looks good. This coming winter I plan to build a RTTL from plans I have acquired. Overall length 5ft. I guess with your IC engine it moves pretty quickly, I'm going to have to stick with electric power as the sailing sites in the South West are all sail or electric only.
Happy sailing

Thanks

RAF Crash Tender - Posted: 4 years ago by raj002
This Is a Kitshack 46 Inch Crash Tender. Nearly finished with a bit more detail yet to finish powered by 2 1400 kv brushless motors running on car speed controllers at 7.2 volt. Goes like stink! Has working rotatable fire monitors which are scratch built

Response by mbrownhill on the 19th Jul 2016
It looks great - I am just starting to build one. Do you have any recommendations on the fire monitors? I am going to use Robbe and make them rotate.

Do you find the twin motors too much ?
Response by raj002 on the 19th Jul 2016
I made my own from bits of tube and old coins for flanges. The nozzle is just sleeved down with progressively smaller tube till it squirted about right. Pump is a standard grapnel unit. Hopefully this link to a photo blog will work. https://picasaweb.google.com/102817163504371499744/RAFCrashT...
The link will give you details of the motors and speed controllers and the props I used. It's quick!
