    "The pulse stretcher is scratch built." Excellent job GrahamπŸ‘ I've been looking at some stretcher circuits using the good old 555/556 timer chips. @ Rooky: I too thought of the Action

    Pulse Stretcher, but it only goes out to 160Β° end to endπŸ€” Happy stretching folks 😊 Cheers, Doug 😎

    Fast attack craft
    Hi Martin, "It will need to be bigger for RC." Actually I don't think so. There are so many mini, micro, pico, RC components available these days, look at the Deltang RXs etc for model railways for example! http://www.micronradiocontrol.co.uk/ I managed to squish two 385 motors into a sub hull WTC only 5.7cm (2.25") wide.
    Electronics
    , except ESC (visible next to the battery forward of the engine room), into a similar, but tapered, compartment in the bow. So motorisation and RC must be possible with your boat with 4.25" beam. But in your case, as you say you have no possibility to get to a sailing pond😭, I s'pose static models is the only solution ☹️ But can also be a source of satisfactionπŸ‘πŸ˜Š Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Doug, Well all that just flew straight over my head!
    Electronics
    is not one of my strengths. The question of IC type well I will post the answer shortly. All I will say is it works a treat. Martin.

    Re: Hellenic Navy - La Combattante IIIb class Fast Attack Craft
    When I get some time I will send you details of the strobe circuit and you can advise me on the right size resistor. I already managed to get 4 LEDS working off the circuit that was built for one, but with a suggested mod and change of resistor could do 2.
    Electronics
    are not my strong point. I did spend some time learning about the ensign the boat was named after when I was creating the nameplate.
