Aeronaut Spitfire by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 23"/1200g Aeronaut Spitfire Capable of 20mph and a runtime of 10mins Single Propellor (2 Blade S Type 25mm) Direct Drive to a Hobbyking outboard (2 Blade S Type) Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) Batteries Controlled Through Turnigy ESC - Comments: This is my aeronaut Spitfire. This was my second build following a lifetime of RC Aircraft. The kit was a joy to build with really nice quality wood and components with good instructions. Sourcing the outboard was a challange but Hobbyking had the solution. running on 2 x 7.4v Lipo and Turnigy water colled ESC this should go very well. Not had a chance to run it yet, but the bath test has shown no leaks and sits well in the water. Actionman and his clothing, helmet ect where sourced from eBay for about £12, bargin!

Aerokits Solent Class Lifeboat by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
I am a modeller of 45 years experience, mostly with RC aircraft but have recently got into boats. Have completed the aeronaut Diva and spitfire to a high standard but needed a challenge So, having spent a long time trying to source an un-started Aerokits Solent, I bit the bullet and bought a set of plans and templates from eBay. Overall the plans are good, the templates need some adjusting as we go for acuaracy. Have spent the last couple of weeks perusing the plans and sourcing the materials needed. A visit to the Balsa Cabin in Maldon, Essex provided all the ply and the internet has provided the main components I.e motors, props, shafts, ESC, battery, soundboard/speaker, servo mostly sourced from Cornwall model boats and Howes Models septembers issue of "model boats" had a great article on a refurb which has been very useful for hints n tips on required electrics and the little extras needed to complete. I do have a workshop where the model will spend most of its time, however my wife's conservatory has been invaluable for using my eBay sourced scroll saw to cut out the formers! The sheet of 6mm ply from balsa cabin was long enough to make keel formers 1 & 2 one piece! I shall post a more detailed update when I get my computer back from repair Monday!

Just put out a little running video, back home now so tile to crack on! Enjoy :) T

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Thanks guys! And yes AllenA I was surprised too! Funnily enough when both props were working there wasn’t too much difference in top speed, probably around 2 or 3 mph however the acceleration was much faster with two as was the stability! (And yes my minor spelling typo!😂 missed that one!) and thanks John, I’m really looking forward to putting the deck on! The rubbing strake and some fenders have just arrived so time to make some progress, however I’m am going away tomorrow on an army cadet camp (don’t worry I’m in the Navy section!! 😂) so will not be able to do anything for a week. Anyway I’ll try and make some more progress and look forward to reporting back again! Hopefully some running in the next video! Yours T

Thanks again, it is looking good. You are getting there! 😁

Aeronaut Pilot by AllenA Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
Love your ingenuity. If it planes on one prop the thing will probably take off. Lyrnyrd skyrnyrd... really!

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Here we are! I have just finished Part 2, it’s more narrative as a time lapse of the electrics would have been rather dull! I used a text to speech converter for the voice as no one likes the sound of their own voice! 😂 hope it’s informative/interesting. Yours T

I second that 👍
