    Re - The other problem is if i listen to all the things that are not good for me then my funeral will be tomorrow Quite true Martin, I remember a story about a Russian farmer who ate around a dozen eggs a day (in the days when eggs would kill you) and had been doing that since he was young,- he was 105 and still riding horses. I have about 10 cups of coffee a day and have since teenage years, I also smoked a pack a day from 18-50yrs - also rolled my own for years and smoked every tobacco known to man while working on Norfolk island for 2 1/2 yrs (duty and tax free stuff from round the world) in the 70s - still here (maybe not in quite as good condition as I might have been otherwise) but can still go sailing, walk 7km (our beach is 3 1/2 km each way, so real handy) in 50 mins without a problem, like a lot of similar older people (sometimes I think I'm doing well on the beach and then get passed by an 80yr old jogging!๐Ÿ˜ฎ All depends on your metabolism and if you can get a but of regular exercise to burn of the rubbish๐Ÿ˜Š. I used to smoke Russian
    s (bitumin road scrapings rolled in old news paper๐Ÿ˜‹) and Camel (dried dead camel scrapings rolled in newspaper and toasted lightly over burning camel hair) was my favourite eastern brand. If you can survive those 2 you can survive anything๐Ÿ˜ I it feels good and makes you happy, rip into it! you could be run over by a bus tomorrow, and that can be real bad for your health.!!๐Ÿ˜‚ JB

    Re: 40'' Seaplane Tender, new build. mods and improvements.
    Hi Doug, - rats nest indeed! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thanks for the nice comment BTW, I do actually have ID tags (masking tape on wires),- you can't see most of them as they are hidden behind the felt lining and under the deck and floor boards. I also use male and female JST plugs reversed when 2 connections are close together. Main power into systems comes from each battery, and splits into a number of JST connectors which supply each particular unit. It's hard to get so many wires neat and tidy in a limited space, as they don't always exit or enter the units in a convenient direction, and some don't bend all that well. Short of cutting all the wires off and substituting my own, I just do the best to fit them as they come. Looks messy but when you are trying to fit 2 ESCs, 2 sound units,(which have to be lifted out while wired, to get at batteries) a water pump, 2 1800 mAh LiPos, 2 remote switches, a battery monitor, 2 shaft oiler reservoirs and a UBEC and associated wiring (including light feed wiring to cabin top) into a space of around 200x200x100mm it's bound to get messy! A problem is finding nice quality flexible silicone wire (especially on JST plugs) which bends nicely round things. Most wire products you get on line are stiff poor quality stuff, and you don't know what type it will be till you get it. Main thing is that it all works and you can't see it with the top on๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š Re- the smoke,- I have 3 Heng Long smokers (one of which I've modded (see vid) and am experimenting with ways of making them compact, (been done on You Tube with a smaller fan than I used (in place of original pump) stuck directly to the side of the smoker tank. The smokers work really well, - just have to reduce the size (maybe a small motor in a tube with a propeller to replace the pump) Hard part is finding smoke which is 'waterproof' as it has to come out with the exhaust water. Usual baby oil smoke just disappears and doesn't travel well down tubes, (even without water) so the unit needs to be close to the exit with a non oily smoke. Perhaps an incense stick or
    in a tube?๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Š JB
