battery charging by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 day ago
Hi Roy, I like your want for the answers! I have an eagle tree, great bit of kit, but, you are relying on the given info regarding the battery to be correct. As an example, I have an internal resistance meter, I fly planes, so rely on accurate lipo battery info. The "c" rating, and milliamps on most chinese battery stuff is grossly over egged! as are esc ratings and so on. I wouldnt get too hooked on these stats. If the batt is losing a cell, throw it and get another, its not worth the hassle. Overlay that graph with volts, this should correspond to the amp spikes, and if you have a gps then also overlay speed, faster is more amps is quicker volts drop for enjoyment 😲 check out my amp draw on my Huntsman!

huntsman plan by Black Dog Jack Seaman   Posted: 5 days ago
Now you mention it, I might have got carried away there! I now think I must have sent off for the plans after reading the two articles. Apologies guys. (Sulks and shuffles off, head down).

huntsman plan by Black Dog Jack Seaman   Posted: 7 days ago
Model Boats magazine January 2016 ncluded a free plan of a Huntsman 31 complete with photos and a step by step build guide. Unfortunately the model is 24". I also wanted a bigger model so I redrew the plan double size. It wasn't too difficult and only took a couple of evenings with a some lining paper from B&Q and a calculator and voila! At the moment I am planking the roof of the cabins and trying to decide between a brushless motor and an old Weston rare earth brushed motor I used to use for fast electrics. The article in MB also ran into February 2016 where all the fiddly finishing bits were described, also with many photos. I expect one can obtain back issues from their web site. Anyone interested in Huntsmen should get these two issues for the detail alone.

Window Repairs by rolfman2000 Commander   Posted: 8 days ago
I picked up a 46" Huntsman yesterday, so i have the same sort of restoration as you have, but bigger 😕 First thing to sort is the "started" planning on the decking. There must be somewhere I can buy strips of timber to plank with to save making my own. And what does one use to represent the black interplank waterproofing ? Otherwise I have to take off the bits already glued on. Cheers guys, Dave W 😊

Precedent Huntsman 34" by canabus Commander   Posted: 10 days ago
Hi All Repaired one of the broken cabin pieces under the aft side window and added strengthen timber forward and aft(windows). The gap under the windows to the deck, I laid down two layers of masking tape and mixed up some Selley's Plasti-bond. Pushed the cabin onto this and waited for it to harden. Removed cabin, removed the masking tape, sand the areas and spray filler undercoated. A nice clean gap!!! Canabus

Hi All Drop her in the water today with a battery, motor, ESC to see where to place to battery. Looks like the sits over the strut at this point. Still a long way to go on this one. Canabus

Sea Queen refurbishment by canabus Commander   Posted: 20 days ago
Hi RNinMunich I agree with you past, respect the past but move forward. With a lot of areas of limit to IC motors we have to move to brushless motors and Lipo batteries. I have changed over with the times and running brushless motors in my Aerokits Sea Hornet, Sea Commander and a restoring a Precedent Huntsman. These old boats can go as fast if not faster with the change over. Canabus
