    Fast attack craft
    Hi Guys, Follow on from my thread "work with
    Balsa
    " I said that I would try and have a go at designing a boat for the EeZeBuilt site. As you know I have not worked with
    Balsa
    wood for many many years. I only made the hull and superstructure to see how it will work out. So hear is my first attempt. I am not That happy about it so I think I will have another think. Martin555.

    Work with
    Balsa
    wood
    Hi Red, Now that you have explained what a "sticky" is, no the subject of this thread was working with
    Balsa
    and as I have not used
    Balsa
    wood for so many years I was just sharing my thoughts and experiences, as I might help the newer members that have not used this wood before. As more experienced modellers I think that we tend to lose sight and forget the new guys to the hobby. There is nothing worse than trying to understand some of the more complex stuff when you can't understand the simple stuff first. Anyway enough woffel , the servo has it own built in speed controller. When you strip off the gears and remove the rest you are left with this (see photo) Motor and speed controller. The pot you can use to zero then any movement from the TX stick will dive you forward and reverse. You can replace the pot with two equal resisters ( I think it's 2k2 not sure at the moment. I don't know what other motors you can use it on that is to technical for me. Also if you remove the motor you can then connect led lighting circuits to it. You can see this on utube. Martin555.

    Thank you JB, As you know I mainly use recycled plastic for my model making and have done for many years. I think I was still at school the last time I used
    Balsa
    . I have a small bundle of
    Balsa
    that I have had hanging around for years so I am going to have a go at making a boat with it. Martin555.

    EeZeBilts From Keil Kraft
    Martin Westquay - wonder if an EeZeBilt could be made of Depron as DG suggested - that should overcome your problem with
    Balsa
    . Saw that it has been used for boats seem to recall by Ron Reese ? Covered it with stockings? Local hobby shop had some Depron a couple of years back - thought about it and returned a week later to buy some - sold out and never restocked . Shop now closed and no idea where to obtain any here. What do you use to glue the stuff anyway - bought a pool noodle to make an easy rescue boat - cant find a glue locally that works on it. (know its a different material to Depron)
