    I know more about full size sailing vessels than I do models but Steve-D is quite correct in saying you need momentum in order to come about. The usual practice with a vessel with a long straight keel would be to let her pay off a little to get a bit more weigh on her, then sail her round slowly rather than putting the helm hard down. if she still got into irons, backing the foresails would help to bring her round. it wasn't

    s..
    I recently tried 2 ESC(s) into one battery connection then into 2 channels of the radio. Received wisdom said that one of the red leads to the radio should be disconnected. This I tried and one ESC ceased to function. So to prevent unwanted feeding on the positive lead from one ESC to another I fitted a diode to each of the ESCs. if you were to do the same I think your setup would work. However if your TX has mixing capability then why not use that ability to mix rudder with the 2 outboard motors so you have the added steering of the 2 outer motors? Any how fit the diodes please this should prevent the ESCs damaging each other its a simple job https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/20x-1N4007-rectifier-diodes-DO41-1A-1000V-not-4001-4002-4003-4004-4005-4006/131111242950?hash=item1e86d6ccc6:g:ZFcAAOSwczhbVMNh:rk:11:pf:0 20 diodes for Β£1 the silver band is positive so goes towards receiver plug.

    LED Tug Mast Navigation Lights
    Hello, Doug! I’m happy to report that my eyes are finally healed & I’m ready to get cracking on my tug’s LED lighting improvement project. Needless to say it’s so fantastic to be able to see again. The infection was so bad that I had to move around the house for weeks with at least one hand on the wall or I was in danger of falling or walking into the china cabinet. I lost what’s called β€œstereo vision” & had no depth perception. it was a nightmare to say the least, especially considering that the source of the infection remains

    . But I just had a checkup at the ophthalmologistβ€˜s office & I was given the happy news that all traces of the infection are completely gone. Hallelujah!πŸ™πŸΌπŸ‘πŸ‘ BTW, did you complete your tug’s mast LED lighting project? I recall that you had finished up the mast itself & had its LEDs working. Were you able to reinstall the mast in the pilot house roof & get everything back together without any problems? At one point you had mentioned possibly making a plug & socket arrangement for the mast so that it could be removed for safer transport to the lake. Were you able to follow through with that plan or was it just is easy to simply re-install the mast? finished for your dog? if so, how did it come out? I hope all is well with you & that your many projects are all turning out successfully.

    How do I find out the voltoge of my motor without it burning out
    Hi Chris I know of no easy way for you to determine the voltage. However motors do have a coil resistance value measured across the terminals. Also if you can see the coil windings a thick wire usually indicates a motor designed for high speed and current. A thinner wire may produce a motor with lower speed and less current and more tork. If you check the Graupner and look at the windings this may help you identify the other two. In my experience it's usually too low a voltage that's the problem resulting in slow revs and little if any tork. At the other end of the scale too high a voltage will result in very high revs and lots of sparks from the brushes. in this case if you continue to apply the volts you will damage the motor. Many electric drills were powered by motors rated at 9v and did indeed have an impeller cooling fan. That said Mabuchi and Johnson produced a vast range of motors all looking similar on the outside but wired very differently inside depending on the ultimate use. I suggest you try with progressively higher voltages and assess which is best for the two
    unknown
    s. Finally most motors are designed to work over a range of voltages so I usually measure both the upper and lower values so I can select the right motor for a particular model.

    Using old motors
    Well, I know I said I would be using older motors, but I think keeping them for older (non speed) boats is maybe the sensible thing to do, but the main reason for what I'm sure you'll all consider to be the obvious answer is that this weekend, my NiCad powered drill gave up the ghost, or rather its ancient batteries did, and

    to me so did my son-in-law's! So suddenly I had 2 big ol' brushed moderns, but more than that, ESCs correctly matched to the motors as both drills have speed controls AND forward, neutral, reverse switches (and little finned gizmos which I take to be heat sinks) so what defense have I now against the "use modern stuff" brigade? I shall keep my older Taycols, SELs and Basset-Lowkes in period correct hulls. So, the question is.....is there any reason why I shouldn't use the speed controllers that come with the drills and is there any harm in running the motors at less than the voltage they run at in the drill function? After all, I won't be doing up any 3" screws with these boats! Cheers, Martin

    Wheelhouse roof detail....and a paint problem !
    Because of the curvature of the wheelhouse roof the searchlight, mast, aerial and other fittings need some shaped wedges to sit on so that they sit vertically, this is particularly important for the searchlight as it is designed to rotate. I cut and shaped some plasticard for these and when I was happy with the angles I superglued them in place on the roof and used a small amount of filler to blend them into the roof profile. Similar spacers were made for the anchor where it sits on the forward cabin roof as well. After masking off the surrounding areas I sprayed a coat of Halfords white primer on the roofs and immediately noticed that the paint β€˜crazed’ very badly for some
    unknown
    reason. I had used panel wipe to clean the roof before painting and was spraying over previous coats of the same primer so this was really disappointing to see 😭 I had to leave the paint to harden for a couple of days and set about stripping it back to the base coats as much as possible and then re-masked and sprayed again….only for the same thing to happen again 😑 This was despite pre-warming the can and shaking it thoroughly for the prescribed two minutes. To cut a long story short I discovered that the new can of white primer that I had recently purchased was faulty and it was spraying considerably more solvent/carrier than pigment and this heavy overload of solvent was the cause of the problem. Halfords replaced the paint without argument but I had to wait another couple of days before I could remove the paint and start over again for the third time. Happily the replacement paint was OK, the re-spray was successful and the final gloss coat is to a reasonable finish but the whole process set me back a couple of weekends and was a very frustrating experience 😞 An isolated case I’m sure but after previously stating that Halfords paint was OK, I now reserve my judgement and remain cautious with their paint, and I now do more test sprays just in case…..

    You can paint laquer over enamel ,but I would suggest going back to the base wood.Use a primer sealer to seal all the other paints out then go from there.I know what your talking about,happened to me till I figured out how to deal with it.Ive even gone as far as to brush on a couple layers of 30min epoxy deluted 50% with denatured alcohol to use as a sealer then start my primers to get smooth.Do Not Paint Enamel over Laquer,the enamel takes a long time to dry which attacks the under layment of any paint/primer.This is why the bubbles form under the paint you just put on

    Hi Brian The hull is very similar to the Tarpon produced in the 1960's, especially the four portholes on the raised deck. The cabin is different but this could be a later addition/modification. I did think it may have been a Dumas kit but I have scant knowledge of their range and was hoping one of our American friends would comment. It certainly looks the part and I hope you have many hours of happy sailing.

    Motor Size for Vliestroom, Model Slipway Buoy Vssel
    From the info you have provided it would appear one motor /prop shaft is running tight. Turning the prop of each motor should feel free. if one is tight then it's likely your lock nuts at each end of the propshaft have become loose and tightend on the prop tube. Releasing the coupling and slackening the prop shaft should solve the tightness, if it's still stiff then you possibly have a problem with rust etc in that shaft, which will need to be removed and cleaned with wire wool. Do make sure the locknut at the prop end is tight to the prop, the adjustment is made at the coupling end, and there should be a washer between each locknut and the prop tube. Play should be minimal, we used to use cigarette papers but as long as its free all will be OK. Too big a gap will allow water seepage. You can check the motors by disconnecting the ESC and applying the battery direct. Both motors should give similar performance. Haverlock has explained how you can check each ESC but please do heed his advice about disconnecting one of the red wires from the receiver plug. Each ESC has a built in BEC circuit and you will experience some strange results if two are connected to the same receiver. As a matter of course I usually test all me new ESCs with a small motor outside the model to make sure it is working OK. it was not

    in the past for ESCs to fail out of the box. it doesn't happen often and I have always received a free replacement but it's easier to find out before installing. if you do have a damaged motor perhaps you could provide a picture so we can advise as to a suitable replacement. A 50p coin included in the pic will help gauge the size.

    to me at the time of buying the kit,the plans were all in French 😯 unfortunately I don't do French......none the less, I got over this using good old fashioned gumption and luck 😁 The boat has a 3 blade screw and is driven by an MFA Torpedo 500 Motor 6v-12v with a Techniplus servo and 2 channel 27mhz transmitter.Awaiting less windy conditions then out for a maiden voyage.

    , timed my measurements by 2.5 instead of triple them. So at the time thought to small for RC, still had a free sail in now defunct boating lake, in Stamford Park, Ashton-u-Lyne, found her to be very stable for her size. Recently bought her out of "retirement" and busy getting her set up for sailing with micro servos, electronic speed controll and 2.4GHz RC. This picture was taken in small garden pond on a old SLR manual focus camera. (4/10)
