    Extra channels
    Re - I still don't understand why JB needs two RXs in his boat either. I'm supplying a free shovel Doug (shovel-Doug- get it.πŸ˜‚) The reason I have 2 RXs is that the new compact sound unit has a main power in and a 'throttle' lead to the RX (self contained
    module
    with speaker). The 'throttle' lead is Siamesed with the ESC throttle lead then to the RX. The other unit is a multi function
    module
    with a separate speaker, and for the throttle, it has a port for the throttle lead from the RX which then goes out a port in the other end for the ESC throttle lead. I am using a converted Mode 2 TX (twin throttles) so 1 ESC/sound for STBD is on r/h stick (ex elev) and the Port side is on the left hand stick (ex Thro). If you plug the new unit into port no 3 (throttle ) and the other into the elev channel you get some sort of feedback (even took out the Pos wire,- still does it. Solved by using ch3 on the second RX, Can you dig it? I didn't get where I am today by not confusing people!!😁 JB

    Re: 40'' Seaplane Tender, new build U
    Hi MT, sound units are actually for cars but have a choice of 58 sounds from V8s to diesels and are the only ones I've seen which seem to sound ok. You have to go through all the sounds and try them through the throttle range but there are a number which sound ok for boats. You can also plug them into your computer and make a few changes such as throttle sensitivity, turbo sound and volume etc. The sounds are proportional, from starting to full throttle and are all WAV sounds which seem to be split up into small 'samples' and as such, some are not quite linear but are useable. There are 2 different models, One is the 'GT Power' sound and lights model - version 2 (the better I think) which comes with all the pre wired and plugged LEDs needed for a car, (h/l, t/l, indicators etc) and comes as a
    module
    and separate speaker, (you can plug 2 speakers into this
    module
    for better sound). The other model is the 'GT Power' Car Engine Sound 'mini' which is just the sound
    module
    and speaker in one box. This works the same as the version 2 model but at present I'm having a problem with the Mini, which has the wrong model for USB adjustment installed, (sounds can be selected manually on the
    module
    but when you plug the
    module
    into the comp and open the
    module
    control panel, it's for the wrong model, - sound files are still viewable though) I'll have to contact GT Power for a fix (going by their on line help page, they seem quite ready to sort problems out and give solutions) Cost is around $56 NZ for the version 2, and around $ 51 for the 'Mini' version which is comparable to most other sound units available, but with more features than some. Apparently, if you send the GT Power tech/help guy a complete WAV sound file (ie, start, idle, and steady slow acceleration to full and back they will make a sound file for your unit and email it back to you,(yet to try but would be brilliant if true) Units are sold on Ebay, Ali Express and Banggood (and many other model shops) and it's worth shopping around all of them, as there are big price differences. These are also sold as GOOL RC sound units but are made by GT Power. ( http://www.gt-rc.com/en/msgBoard.jsp ) You will see the home page on there. I use a number of their products such as battery chargers, rev counters, battery checkers etc and all seem very reliable and work well. I don't think they sell direct, but they are sold everywhere. For Rooky Sailors benefit, the motors are Gool RC 540-45T 7.4V brushed car motors which have ball bearings and replaceable brushes (motor is rebuildable). Haven't tried them on the water yet, but the 45T (12000rpm) should be tourqy enough (different turn Nos are available) John B

    Stern
    module
    assembly
    This weekend I decided to do more work on the Gato Submarine. Now I am starting to realise how big this job to build the model is, let alone the WTC which I am thinking about and starting to plan in tandem. I have been working on the stern
    module
    today trying to get the rudder and aft planes in a working state. I have followed the video made by a kind soul on the internet which I am finding very helpful. To make them fit properly has resulted in a lot of filing and reshaping particularly on the rudder. All of the edges were interfering all over. After a considerable amount of adjusting, they now fit and work perfectly. A hole was carefully drilled right through the height of the rudder to allow for a shaft to be inserted for operation. Small holes were also drilled through some waste material to produce two running bearings for the rudder shaft. There has had to be a considerable amount of material removal inside the stern
    module
    halves to allow for the planes and rudder to work. This was done using a burr in the Dremel and files. Great care was taken not to remove too much and go right through the part. I am having a little problem with warpage of one of the stern halves. You can see the gap between the parts in one of the photographs. It might be that they will glue together without incident if I fix them well with bands during curing. Does anybody have a cunning plan to straighten this part before gluing? I have purchased the propeller shafts and tubes so further work on this
    module
    will continue when they arrive, probably towards the end of July. I have now purchased my chosen motors. They are MFA 360. I have also ordered the raw materials to make the motor mount and servo trays. I wonder if I have to put the usual three suppressors on the motors if running a 40Mhz transmitter. Next time I am going to work on the bow planes. I will have them working and retracting. I bought the gears for the retracting mechanism today but have found them to be too big on diameter to fit two side by side in the bow
    module
    . The gears are perfect in every other way so I think I will reduce them to quadrants which should fit nicely. More cad design work for me I think.

    Fairmile c class maiden voyage
    Sounds like you need to have a dedicated TX for the boat. I had a similar problem as I fly planes also. I bought a Hobby King HK6s mode 1 which is a basic 6CH but is easy to convert to twin throttles for boats (I have 2,- 1 for smaller planes and 1 for boats + a 6x, 9x and 2 9XRs). Makes life a whole lot simpler not having to use relays and switches for motors. The other TX is the Fly Sky 9X (Turnigy 9X, IMax 9X) which has more switches and functions (plus easy to find extra RXs outside HK,- 3ch, 4ch, 6ch,which suit) or if you want overkill, a TGY 9XR pro and JR
    module
    , which has everything you will NEVER need on a boat . Maybe you could use a program to pulse lights, (I have it lowering the flaps on my Cub in 2 stages in small steps /pulses and slow stepless up for eg,) or perhaps have the center motor only coming in over 1/2 throttle through a separate RX,- options are endless. I think the HK 6s is the best if you just need a 6CH or the 9X for more features. You can use the rotary switch (6s) through a Sky RC remote switch (eg) to turn on lights etc plus the toggle sw for another function. Just depends on the $$ really Not sure if you are using Lipos, brushed or brushless setup but either way sounds like 2x 3s 3000mah 20c lipos should work, especially if your motors are brushed 12v , also maybe try reducing the prop pitch or diam to take a bit of load off the battery/s. Depends obviously on a number of things such as space, motor type (no of poles, KV, size etc), boat weight, battery type and capacity/discharge rate etc. Lipos are by far the best option for powering models.

    Motor forward and reverse
    I am seeking some help with the electrical setup for my new Dusseldorf project. The model, when completed, will use 15 channels to operate fully. I am using a Frsky Taranis Plus transmitter with the x8r receiver. I have purchased two frsky sbus 4 channel decoders which will give me the required channels. I have most things covered, I think, but am a little stuck on what
    module
    I will need to make the small geared motors work in forward and reverse on one channel. I have a lot of the Turnigy rc switches to operate most of the functions but these will not give forward and reverse options. I have been thinking that I should have the main items such as rudder, throttle and lights etc operating through sbus on channels one to eight and the more difficult functions, such as the crane lift and lower and the anchor up and down, directly through the receiver on channels nine to 16. I think my problem with the lift and lower (reversing motor direction) might be solved this way by using the on off on switches, several of which are on the transmitter. I would love to hear what those who have experience of multiple channel usage think and possibly if there is a
    module
    that I could connect through sbus to give the forward and reverse option I seek. Thanks. Peter.

    WTC/Sub Driver.
    Hi Guys, Another little update. I have installed the remote on/off switch in between the pump and the pump switch arrangement, fitted some connectors for the battery and battery charge systems,fitted a small digital volt meter and fuse holder. Completed the wiring and tested all systems. Everything in this WTC is bits and pieces that I have collected over the years. I must admit that using the standard servos made it a lot more difficult to get it all to fit in. Because I am using the BEC from one of the ESC’s it means That the battery position on the receiver is not used, so l have decided that I will power the navigation and running LED’s from it as when it is powered up I get 4.5 volts from it which is ideal for the LED’s. I did plan on having the signal light working in morse code using an Arduino board but I have not got the room to fit it in. I will see if I can make some sort of simple flashing system instead, if not then I will have to forget it. Here are some photos of the forward and aft

Not good for the SLAs 😑 IF they assume it is a 4S 14.8V Lipo they will cut off at 4x3.0 i.e. 12V which will drastically shorten your run time; you'd have to keep the SLAs near fully charged (13.6V) all the time.

    Exciters/transducers
    Hi Neil (or Neville?), There are two issues with using four. 1) Since these 4 Ohm transducers work by bringing the surface they are mounted on to move like a speaker cone, there may be no advantage. in fact two on the same surface may create waves through the hull side that partially cancel each other and thus reduce the volume. True, they may sometimes combine as well. This effect will happen in specific frequency ranges depending on the stiffness of the hull. Put one each side on the largest open area available as we discussed for the tug. Cheaper anyway πŸ˜‰ 2) Speaker impedance and the minimum that the amplifier can handle. Check the Digisound specs Output Impedance to see if the amp can handle 4 Ohms or only 8 Ohms, which is the case for all sound
    module
    s I have seen or used. As with your tug, two x 4 Ohm transducers in series gives 8 Ohms for max volume from an 8 Ohm amp output. Four in series would give 16 Ohms which would significantly reduce the volume produced. Two x 4 Ohms in parallel though only presents 2 Ohms to the amp, which highly likely will blow the output transistors 😑 All four in parallel would be only 1 Ohm which would most definitely produce the 'magic smoke' 😭 Don't forget to put a little enclosure around the back of the transducer after it's stuck to the hull.

    HMS HOOD by Trumpeter
    Yes I was that person with the transducer( amongst others). I originally had a speaker inside the lower superstructure of the tug, where there are window openings, but without any glazing, so in theory the sound should have been able to escape. The engine sounds were OK but the other sounds, on a different sound
    module
    , were only audible if the model was more or less within arms length, which I thought unsatisfactory! Aha I thought, use a transducer attached under the deck, other people seem to get satisfactory results. I didn't. I think that there is too much clutter on the deck of the Southampton,which is not that big, preventing the hull from doing what it is supposed to do. Next idea is to conceal a normal speaker on the deck disguised as a pile of pallets, with lots of lovely gaps to let the sound out. Chris

    Steam sound unit (variable speed)
    What I don't like about the 'Noisy Thing' is that apparently the engine sound stops for as long as you use any other sound; e.g. fog horn, ship's bell etc, so called 'General Sounds' in the Action description, if you use it in so called 'Throttle Mode', i.e. engine sound coupled to speed. In that case you may as well use a Switch
    module
    to connect the 'General Sounds' on separate
    module
    s to an amplifier with mixer inputs. The sound
    module
    s I found here (Germany) don't have this disadvantage. They have at least two output channels enabling a minimum of two simultaneous sounds. Specific sounds can also be coupled to switched outputs; e.g. to move cranes, gun turrets, or switch lights etc whenever that corresponding sound is actuated. Specific sequences of various sounds can be pre-programmed and initiated with one command using only one sound channel. Attached are extracts from the manual of a
    module
    from Neuhaus Electronics showing how to synchronise real engine sounds to the throttle. Needs a bit of PC work but no rocket science πŸ˜‰ and the sounds are then linked to the throttle stick position. Send me a PM and I can send you details including source and operating manual. The Graupner

    is very similar but I haven't experimented with it yet. Cheers Doug 😎

    Hi again Neil, did you mean their sound
    module
    s? Something like this? http://www.mtroniks.net/prod/Sound-Systems-For-Scale-Models/digisound5mLMC.htm Don't know these anywayπŸ€” Up to now I've used simple analogue sound boards (some home made) and microswitch /or relay control. Also have a Graupner programmable sound system in my stash, destined for Ark Royal. Doug 😎 Doug 😎

    Hi Neil, I know the feeling, but Gently Bentley! πŸ˜‰ What do you want your sound system to do? there are simple single sound boards e.g for motor sound; diesel, petrol, steam in various types, sirens - operated by a simple servo/micro switch/relay system or full blown programmable
    module
    s where you can load your own .WAV format sounds. There are thousands on the electronic spider web! Several years ago I built a CMOS driven relay board so I could operate four functions from one proportional channel: destroyer siren (Whoop Whoop!), smoke, lights, fog horn. Was a home made PCB about 4" square! Nowadays one mini
    module
    will do all that and much more; Plug and Play, plus you can load your own sound files from the PC, but is that so satisfying?? Another debateπŸ˜‰ Cheers Doug 😎 PS for some inspiration have a look at the Component Shop site under Action Electronics; sound! I've just bought the Asdic sound board for my destroyer; test report follows. πŸ˜‰

    Hi Dave, glad you found the pics useful, that's what we are all here for n'est ce pas? πŸ˜‰ may have a few more detail pics in the archive, will have a rummage later. The two 'black boxes' are 'ready ammunition' drums for the Browning 50 cal MGs. You can see them again in pic 14. They sit on an equipment box in front of the cabin, cos on this version there is an extra single 50 cal mounted on the port corner of the cabin. See pic 23!! The one after the starboard prop pic. The penultimate pic shows the MG in detail from the rear - Operator's PoV. The silencers (mufflers in American) have a simple butterfly flap valve to deflect the exhaust into the silencer box with an underwater outlet. BTW: the actuators are missingπŸ€” They were a simple rod mechanism actuated from the stern deck. Still looking for detail pics! Maybe we could figure out a way of coupling them to a motor sound
    module
    for 'Whisper Mode'?? Bit small to see when out on the pond though! Cleaning the glasses helped the eyesight a bitπŸ˜‰ straightening out the crossed eyes and retraining the brain took a little longer πŸ€” happy building and exciting but safe sailing, cheers Doug 😎

    Hi Nick, As basic as this sounds I got a switch that you plug into a channel on the rx to control lights or just about anything remotely. I've also got a sound
    module
    with 2 speakers from eBay that you load the sound onto a microSD card which I find amusing, this also plugs into a rx channel. Animatronics is new to me, I'm learning slowly, my 1/4 scale Donald Campbell should scare a few people. I'm also dabbling with 3D printed linear actuators at the moment, I'm up to 130mm of travel from a normal servo. Ohhh the entertainment πŸ€— Cheers Wayne

    Hi I believe President don't do the glass hull now due to a fire at the factory who produced them so now only have the wood hulls. I also have the 49" Perkasa (grp) hull you can see a picture in my profile, I run mine on a single prop with the following set up and it runs very stable and very fast although you need a big water to open up to full throttle.......... Leopard 4074 brushless motor Tinergy 120A ESC 35 prop 2x 500 4S lipos wired in parallel....... gives about 50 mins fast sail time even longer at a more scale speed. Mtroniks digisound sound
