Footy - Dutch Barge - Ernest Frank - Posted: 4 years ago by JediErn
Made as a joke out of a pair of clogs. But It does meets the Footy class rules.

Starlet - MM1048 - Posted: 4 years ago by JediErn
Designed by Vic Smeed In 1966 for the Magazine, Model Maker. Plan No. MM1048. Bought plans from Member and decided to build It as an upgrade to Wee Nip I.e. one sail to two sails. Sailed well. In strong wind had problems with mainsail so fitted a kicking strap which really made a difference.

Sorry for delay In answering. I made the sails from a Egyptian cotton bed sheet donated by my wife. They were then dyed with dylon dye.

Sheila - Posted: 4 years ago by 4clubs
Named after my wife Sheila, the yacht was purchased from the builder, as I don't do yachts, but thought I had better have one for those windy days when scale models become tricky. She behaves well, (as does the wife). Only Radio control on the rudder; the sails are set depending on the wind strength.

Photos for Nasraf:
As promised, close-ups of the hatch seal. The rim attached to the deck Is 0.5mm mahogany. The Inner skin of the drop cockpit Is two strips of 0.5mm mahogany glued together. The outer skin and cabiln are made from 1.5mm mahogany. The curve was formed by plank bending soaked mahogany strip. The channel Is filled with Vaseline to ensure a waterproof seal.

Maiden voyage.
One or two little Issues. Kept losing radio reception even at close range. Need to fit the satellite receiver In the nav cabin methinks.

HI Neil
Difficult to assess without a bit more Info as to type of R/c etc.

27Mhz and 40Mhz sets have longer aerials which are usually above deck but the connection at the case end can become damaged so you should check for continuity. Could also be unsuitable crystals If you have recently changed.

If 2.4Ghz your aerial does need to be above the waterline at all times. As you mention a satellite receiver this may well be your setup probably at 5Ghz. If you are using separate radio coms for the control and sat nav, could It be an Interference problem? An old and judderey servo can also play havoc with your signal.

Thanks, Dave.
It's 2.4Ghz and a new servo.
The receiver Is velcro'd to the underside of the deck.
I'll place the satellite In the roof of the nav cabin and see how It goes!

HI Neil
More than likely your aerial Is below the waterline for some time and I know from personal experience that this will cause loss of signal. Mine was In a Trent Lifeboat and still gave problems until I arranged for the receiver to be well above the waterline with the aerials pointing up.
