Duke of Cornwall by Neil-S Seaman   Posted: 5 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 51"/7000g Duke of Cornwall Capable of 4mph and a runtime of 30mins Twin Propellors (3 Blade 20mm) Direct Drive to a Torpedo x 2 (3 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 6Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Electrinize (5Amps) ESC - Comments: This was a static scratch built model constructed in 1970s. The boat is a model of the Lizard and Cadgwith lifeboat 'Duke of Cornwall' which saw service for 23 years (1962 - 1985) and saved 93 lives. Model runs very well on the water and achieves a good scale speed when both motors are at full power. 12 volt gel batteries, control by two Electronize speed controllers which plug in independently to receiver. She has a two tone siren. Steering (like the real thing) was rather sluggish, a single blade rudder but it improves by using the two engines. Recent work is to add 3 lifeboatmen (DK Models) and RNLI flag of the right age. I think she now looks ready for her first crewed outing! Hope you like (hint!) the internal pictures now added and close ups of the crew.

S 100 Schnellboot RC build by kmbcsecretary Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Doug yes I did try the three prop set up first MFA 385's if I remember correctly running on a electronize 30 speed controler.but replaced them with a Graupner eco 500 I think ?

Graupner ranzow refitting by kmbcsecretary Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
I originally built this about 6 years ago when I was still a novice builder and some mistakes were made and it ended up partially sinking , it was left in the workshop for about a year before I decided to refit it out. The deck just lifted of the framing without any problems because it was rotten as well as some of the framing , the motors and prop shafts had seized and most of the electrics and the battery had shorterd and corroded due to the sinking. I had been doing the odd bits of the refit over the past couple of years not really in any rush to complete it. After replacing the rotten framing I started to replace the electrics with all new gear Battery 12v 7mah Motors Mtronic 560 Working crane using 3 mini motors with Mr RC world micro speed controllers Working anchor winch (krick I think) Full lighting kit and working radar Main speed controllers electronize The pictures shows as it is now ready for the new decking to be fitted

46" Firefloat What Motor/Battery by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 months ago
Hi John, you might now be scratching your head, and wishing you have not asked the original question! This seems to be a common issue, as the boating community is light years behind the other disciplines, rc cars, planes helis and so on, its probably due to the facts general boating doesnt really need the later generation technology, the average boater age is probably higher than the other disciplines so budgeting might be an issue, and there is less younger blood in the clubs to explain the lipo/brushless etc. We see posts with a load of numbers, specs, warnings etc, its enough to put people off. Im a big fan of brushless/lipo/ 2.4 etc, been doing it for years, its cheaper and more efficient (once you have the basics) but for the average guy, who just wants to spend an easy afternoon at the local lake gently cruising around, brushed motors, nimhs batteries, even lead acid, will do the job👍 Your 4 foot ply boat, once painted, with fittings, will be heavy, I know, I own one. Those 600 motors are not big enough, they are better suited to the smaller 3 foot boat, then, pushing them with a 6v lead acid, just cant do it. The battery will be screaming HELP!! I started 15 years back exactly the same, 600 motor, 6v battery, massive 50mm prop, I knew no better and took advise from people who didnt know what they were talking about😡, remember those gold hi tech speed controllers!! I had one, it melted, literally melted on the first use😭 Get 700 size motors, they will need to be water cooled, as mentioned by jarvo, the nominal voltage or below isnt good enough, power them at the max voltage. Brushed means you can use one apropriate esc, look out for electronize (are they still in existance?) or mtroniks, preferably use nimhs batteries over lead acid with a high mah. If after all this you want to venture into lipos and brushless motors, go to a club, spot a boat that is similar in size to yours, if you like the performance talk to the owner and gain experience and knowledge that way, it will save money, lost time and a lot of disappointment, I have been there so feel your pain. I say I would never go back to brushed motors and none lipo batteries, but I always want silly speed, not runtime, after 15 minutes Ive had enough and am bored. Rambling over! My 4 foot boat is twin brushless and uses 4 lipo 5000mah cells per motor, it will do 25mph for 15 mins, then I go home😁 Message is, you can get a "reasonable" performance from brushed motors, with the correct batteries, right props, but weight is the enemy. Looks lie you are at Biddulph, get onto Dave M a moderator on here, and arrange to go over to see the crewe and district boys on one of their sailing days, take your boat with you, they will help👍

Question- Prop rotatio direction? by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 months ago
Hi Dave, I’ve gone for the single electronize esc simply because the reviewer who did a refurb in septembers model boats mag and he seem to find it fine? I’ve modified the rudders in the hope that she will turn ok. If after testing I find it does have difficulty turning, I shall look at swapping the current esc for a pair. Thank you for your comments, kind regards sy

Dauntless by NickW Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Doug...it's this one: and no that little issue is still ongoing...have changed my Tx/Rx/ESC to Turnigy....the Mtroniks ESC's I was using were 'compromised' regarding the set-up...I now have a programmable card to set up my ESC's - The Dauntless has been converted to a Police launch, it's a twin screw using two Electronize ESC's.....just needs a Tx/Rx and batteries, possibly looking at lead acid x2

Servos & motor having a wobbly by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Doug I well remember these chokes and that capacitor. I do believe modern thinking is to wrap the low current wires to the ESC round a circular choke, there are never any chokes in the supplied ESCs motor leads. I do recall advice on one of the forums regarding not putting any inductance in the motor leads, not sure if it was Electronize or Mtronic who gave the advice. They both adopted high frequency pulses for control a few years ago and there was lots of discussion as people upgraded their old ESC to a new one. Chokes were quite common in the past but the technology was vastly different to that used by modern ESCs. Are you sure the interference is from the motor? I had a very similar symptom with a faulty servo, very similar to that Eric is using. I have asked him to unplug the servo and see if the problem goes away. So far I have not had a reply so can only guess what might be the problem. Cheers Dave

RAF fIRE TENDER MAST DETAILS ?? by none Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
Yes upgraded the motor to a torpedo 850 12 blots on an electronize 15 amp esc. Goes quite well

12 volt motors to esc,s by none Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
The esc stuff is all working now. So i have just hooked up a LM2577 Voltage Booster input 3.5 - 30V, output up to 30V adjustable The idea is to have 24 volts battery input and the output stays at 12 volts. Having just said that it has come from action electronics and does not work .....Again. So I will have to stick with 12 volts .... so far as electronize esc,s go there heavy duty and also used so I have been told on the robots used in robot wars..

MFA Torpedo 850 motor by none Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
At long last I got there. These say they are For 540 dual motor or single motor So for an 850 torpedo it is a no go.. I think I will have to stick with these from http:// style='background-color:yellow;'>electronize.net/model_electronics_frames.htm

MFA Torpedo 850 motor by camyaj Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
I use these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122489724489?ul_noapp=true in my S-Boot and PT boat both driving 3x motors ie MFA 850's and Graupner 600's those Blue or pink ones I had trouble with as with Not electronize but the other ones.They are car ones and you could probably get similar ones in the UK . They may be chinese amps but they handle 40amps plus no bother

MFA Torpedo 850 motor by Threelegs Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
I have used Electronize ESC driving MFa 850's in my 54 inch Arun for 5 years with no problems and am putting the same system in my Tyne. As to cost, what is reasonable?

MFA Torpedo 850 motor by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Mark I was refering to the Blue as shown in the link posted by Sonar, I should have made it clearer that Electronize are brilliant and I have never seen or heard of any problems. Dave

MFA Torpedo 850 motor by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Dave M, the Electronize ESC's i was refering to are good for 24volts and i think 30 amps, the other reference was to the blue chinese esc's that had a nasty habit of smoking Mark
