2 motors 1 esc by sonar Lieutenant   Posted: 3 days ago
There are hundreds if not thousands of 0.1 uF capacitors across the terminals on Ebay what would be the better to buy.

Thin Flat Timber by sonar Lieutenant   Posted: 6 days ago
I have been looking for some thin flat timber for another project for some time and ended up on Ebay. Then another thought have a look down the local tip seems I spend A lot of time there but I don.t I Just look about when throwing out something that I can Not give away on freecycle. Anyway looking through the paints again Yep bought 4 small tins Assorted colours. £1 and tripped over a window blind that was left leaning against the wall. Picked it up and realized it was a wooden blind. And Guess what it was wood constructed with thin strips and NOT plywood.A little under 3 mm thick and 25mm wide. I guess ripped down into very small strips it would be Ideal for those that make wooden boats or even strip wood hulls. So yet another £1 spent. and stored away for later use. I guess buying something like this from elsewhere could cost a small fortune. I am thinking that your local freecycle website may also be a place to look..For free wooden blinds.

Tyne class lifeboat by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
I see you sail with Colwyn Bay and I am sure one of the members there will know how to get some video on the site. The model is a credit to your skills. Dave

First post... by Midlife306 Petty Officer   Posted: 19 days ago
Hi Dave, The 1/12 Bluebird is brushless (all running gear from PMB), as it's made from balsa, I've waterproofed everything with sanding sealer inside & out. To be honest I was planning on taking it to quiet stretches of the Leeds/Liverpool canal as I didn't think any scale model boat clubs would want anything to do with my boat, but I will have a look at what clubs there are locally. The 1/4.2 will be IC powered, I want it to reach a scale speed of 300mph so if I can hit 75mph in the real world with it I'll be very happy. I hope if I can keep it light enough a couple of Tiger King S27 Evo's will get me there. I've emailed PMB as they don't have any stock at the moment, to see when they are due some in, but I've not received a reply yet. Plan is to buy 1 engine initially so I can plan the layout & while I'm carrying on with the build I was going to drop it into this eBay hull to see how it performs. I have a couple of Enya 40ss motors, I'm going to try one in the Short Stuff & see how it goes. I can't cope sitting at home watching the telly, I like to keep busy😎 Cheers Wayne

Ellesmere Port Model Boat Show by jtdavid Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 22 days ago
hi, i have been today met a few members of colwyn bay club where I sail, had a great time spending money😁 and looking round the museum. there are some real old barges there👍. the model boats were also very nice to see. saw a fantastic aircraft carrier. there wasn't much sailing on the water as it was windy. david

Trawler "OUR LASS" by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 22 days ago
Hi ginnyginny Graupner may no longer be available. Look at http://www.cornwallmodelboats. tml they have a selection of Raboesch. I also found the no e-bay. You could give Jackie a ring at Model Slipway to see what they recommend. If you Google model bow thrusters you may find more local suppliers. If there is noise it's probably because the internals have rusted. Hope you find what you want Dave

Motor upgrade by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 26 days ago
Hi colindavies The D2836 will be more than adequate. In fact two 22xx type at 1000kv would be also suitable. You will also need two suitable brushless ESCs but they do not need to be more than 30amps each. The props should be the same diameter as the motor case so your existing props may be too big. I use a 35mm 3 bladed brass prop on my 34" Crash tender driven by a 3536 brushless outrunner and it really flies with an 11.1v 2200Ma LiPo. The 22xx size motors are popular with the quadcopter brigade and e-bay have offers for motors and escs. If you want reverse on the ESC this may be dearer. Dave

Saw this Tug under shelter in Mahone Bay, N.S. by Grandpa Lieutenant   Posted: 27 days ago
I know it was built in 1959 as the DPW tugboat "Enmore". It was named T.A.2 until 2009. Does anyone know anything else about this type of tug? I got the information from this website: http://tugfaxblogspotcom.blogs ndup.html

brushless motor for a aerokits sea commander by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 27 days ago
Hi Adijohn Welcome to the site. You can search the site for Sea Commander and will find how others have progressed with their builds. Regarding brushless I would expect a 35mm outrunner to be a suitable size with a prop of the same diameter and direct drive. The entry level power supply would be a NiMh battery of about 5000mAhr at 9.6 to 12v. If you really want the speed and endurance then LiPo is the best but does cost more and needs correct handling both when sailing and especially when charging. Brushless motors have kv ratings which indicate the free load speed per volt, so for an 800Kv motor at 10v = 8000revs (it will be less under load). They also have a wattage limit which is the product of the voltage times the amps, so for 10v at 20 amps this is 200 watts. If you exceed this the motor will overheat and fail. The ESC also has a max amp rating and best practice suggests this is twice the expected running current. You can buy a wattmeter to measure current and watts. There are many suppliers but have a look at -Shop?_trksid=p2047675.l2563. Hope this helps and if you like my response please tick the like box to help others find the post. Good luck and please post details of your build. Dave

Perkasa 49 inch by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 29 days ago
Neodym magnets are excellent for holding hatches, decks etc in place. I have just sourced a selection from ebay and bought two 10x10mm. had not considered using as a rescue aid but these magnets are exceptionally strong and once attached are very difficult to remove so certainly up to rescuing a model. We sail many yachts and it can be difficult to find a safe attachment without causing damage. I do hope you keep us posted on the automation of you features. On water shots are always good especially if they capture other models on the water. Dave
