Complete! by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
So, having had a few days off during the week when "The Boss" has been at work has given me enough hours to finish The Waveney off! Its been a hard week of making the small bits n bobs from scratch using a combination of balsa, carbon rod, brass rod, plastic tube, plastic sheet etc to make the radar array, antenna mast, extra cockpit details ect. The deck winch was made from large Servo output discs! The RNLI flag printed off Google! This has been followed by alot of detail painting and laquering. Anyway, I think I have just about exhausted as much detail as can be had at this scale and and happy to call completion! Only job to do now is get it in the Hot Tub and add the 2 Kg of ballast to get her on the waterline. On water photos and video to follow in the last update on this thread! as for next projects? I have the Aeronaut Pilot boat sat in the pile and the Fairy huntress 23 plan and wood pack on route from Sarik Hobbies!

Model hovercraft plans by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
No Doug I don't use a dumbphone I'm not clever enough.😊 I've seen Hovercraft plans in some of the on line plans services such as Outerzone Pocket Aeronautics etc . Have a good Google Good luck👍 Oh ! by the way I think a skirt is essential. Some rubberised/plasticised THIN fabric is the best stuff to use or if not👍 oiled silk if you can get it.🤔

Spektrum, new, useless... by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
I haven't heard of that over here, Doug, but it sounds like something I would consider, as it covers more. Last time I tried I couldn't get any sense out of the brokers at all. One couldn't even understand what a "model aircraft" was! Didn't exactly fill me with confidence that I'd end up with anything usable. I think if the British Model Flying Association was still the Society of Model Aeronautical Engineers I would be far more likely to approach them, but the BMFA can go to hell with its naff logo too. Still don't see where chucking a foamy off a deserted cliff needs insurance! And boats, round here? Nah. This is Fenland, Nothing and nobody. You need CAA permission for heavy kites over here too. Anything over 11Kg, I think, or a certain size. My old chum built a 1/4 scale Tiger Moth, with a 35cc petrol engine in it. He also has a 1/4 scale Stampe. Huge things. Martin

Celtic Ambassador by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
Hi Jugge, all you need to do is fit a 'lighting board' like these- style='background-color:yellow;'>aeronaut-Port_Starboard_Lamps_with_Lighting_Boards.html to block the light going aft 👍 All the best, Doug 😎

Too Powerful Brushless ? by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
Hi Graham If we are talking about the Graupner Brushless Speed ​​500 ECO no 7295 then yes the Kv is 500 which equates to 7500 at 14.8v. It's 50mm x 80mm with a 6mm shaft so really a heavy duty motor and in a Aeronaut Queen 36" still much too big and powerful. You really need to resolve the drive train and shaft problems and this will be easier if you choose a motor of smaller diameter and power. A 36xx or very similar size motor at about 1000Kv or less (500Kv with 14.7v) will be ample. The prop should be less diameter than the motor. There are many examples of 36" model boats on this site and I do believe the majority of our members have used similar set ups, to those we have suggested, in their models with a large degree of success. It could be we are talking about a different motor as you refer to " the small outrunner motor". If so please post a link to a pic of the motor.

Newcomers? :) by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 9 months ago
Hey, just wondering what the deal is with newcomers to this mbc? I have an aeronaut Pilot and would love to try it out with some other boats in a more scale environment! Thanks Skipper44

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 9 months ago Just uploaded another running video! :) not too exciting but gives away the stage of completion XD, a few more videos coming soon, and hopefully the build part 3 in around a month when I've compiled all the footage! t

Aeronaut Pilot LKBM 04 by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 9 months ago
[Score: 9/10] 30"/4000g Aeronaut Pilot LKBM 04 Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 50mins Twin Propellors (4 Blade 30mm) Direct Drive to a Graupner 600 speed (4 Blade) Powered by NiMH (8.4v) 5Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through MTroniks (40Amps) ESC - Comments: Took me 7 months to build. Has twin esc so I can control each prop individually, twin rudders, a sound system, horn, working anchor windlass, 4 individually controlled lighting setups (cab / dashboard lighting, navigation, pilot and search lights), spinning radar etc. She gets up well on a plane, probably a bit over powered!

Skiff update by boaty Admiral   Posted: 10 months ago
Try Dens Models Website if you are looking for a small outboard motor. He is the dealer for the Aeronaut range that do both boats and aircraft. I have seen an outboard powered model in his range and he is situated on the Isle of Wight. Den is an excellent person with a longstanding interest in model making .😊 Boaty.

In side the cab, just finished the roof and primered the whole thing

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Current stage, I will be making a video on how I have done the boat thus far for the superstructure, and the cab which is currently being built!
