Thank you Mark i thought you had to buy special grease so that's saved me some money, cheers

Solent RC Model Boat Club at South West Model Show by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Hi Gerry, Easy answer, light machine oil. 3in1 or similar, dont use WD40, also grease can be heavy and cause drag on the shafts, oil all the way, especially if you sail in salt water. Mark

Midhurst Model Engineering Exhibition February 2018 by ads90 Commander   Posted: 8 days ago
It was a really good show yesterday at Midhurst with Basingstoke, Phoenix, Swiss Cottage, Portsmouth Model Display Team, Portsmouth Power Boat, Selsey and Springbok model boat clubs to name a few. A good many visitors and good camaraderie between clubs, so good all round exhibition which also included great model train layouts and the fantastic Meccano modellers. Here's to next year guys.

krick romarin "ex robbe" by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 days ago
The Robbe factory was sold off probably with most of the moulds and equipment when the company got into difficulties. There are some kits available and Cornwall Model Boats stock the available range. I would check the Krick site for their postal charges to the UK. The demise of Robbe and Graupner was a big set back for model makers universally and its a pity many of the resources were lost before a rescue was possible. I agree with Doug E-Bay does have them listed occasionally and I have seen them at Model Boat Shows bring and buy sales. CADMA is possibly the next show (2nd - 3rd Jun), the Mutual Model Boat club appears to have moved to September not forgetting The Model Boat Convention on 25th - 26th August.

Too Powerful Brushless ? by Tica Lieutenant   Posted: 16 days ago
HI there With that setup you are trying to make a boat fly :-) Several members of my local modelboat club is running the same setup as I do with my Classic. And that is a Graupner Compact 260Z 1380KV for the Classic 2S is more than enough and 3S will still make the Queen fly over the water. So a 1100KV on 3S with a 3 blade semi racing prop will do a great job. You could also cut down on amount of "S" on your existing setup and program the ESC to slow start.

Riva scratch built boat update by Alan999 Lieutenant   Posted: 20 days ago
I launched her yesterday and she went well. No ballast was needed and I put a 9.7 battery for powering. She is very fast and two weeks time will go on the boat clubs water in Torrevieja,

Orange Mystery by Biggles Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 20 days ago
I have a BloodAxe which is very similar, I contacted the designer Roger Stollery at Guildford Model Boat Club, he supplied me with a sail plan, I also spoke to him on the phone, he was very helpful. Might be worth trying to contact him.
