    46'' RAF Crash Tender
    Going back a tad to the thread around i month ago when MaggieM and Robbob discussed planked or painted decks. Comments were made about a shinny RAF Fireboat at Warwick, which is a very good friends project. His is 93. What else is in the photo is 94 built by another good friend. Much has been made in this thread about scale models and correct paint, plus position of, and colour of stern lights on these boats.( and the research too) So there is an element of modellers licence or personal preference, which has been discussed in depth. The is fine! However I would like to ask you guys as to how far you go with "License" As while 93 is a great model and sails very well, it scares the hell out of us all with the wake at full throttle. There is a glaring deviation from prototype design! The model is only single screw, and not twin as per prototype! Before you ask there is a barn like space inside her so it is not a space issue. So if it is twin screw prototype should it be a twin
    screw model
    ? Would you mark it down as a judge in a scale competition? Thoughts anyone, before I leave the country!!!.

    Transmitter Mode 2
    Hi Doug, I have now introduced the ELEVON function on my twin, independently controlled
    screw model
    s. That puts both motors on the RH stick (up/down) for simultaneous speed control and LH/RH differential operation for side to side. Tried to explain it in more detail in a recent Brave Borderer blog update. It is also covered in a recent Model Boats mag article. With twin, independent motors find it so intuitive that I like it. Previously had one motor on LH stick and the other on the right. Found them difficult to synchronize and then steer accurately. Pity my only tests are on the bench as no sign of ice free water here yet. Will report water tests in due course Rowen
