850 Brushless by canabus Admiral   Posted: 7 days ago
Hi Andy Slightly more power with a brushless motor is a no go!!! Brushless motors the same size are far more powerful !!! But, the about same RPM a Turnigy L5055-700kv(500 rpm more on a 4S(14.8 volts) Lipo battery would be a good replacement. Mind you at 1600 watts( about 2 and 1/4 HP) these will used in a large boat like a 46" Vosper Crash Tender or a 46" Sea Queen!!! My move into brushless motors I have found that they are 7 to 10 times more powerful and equal to, if not better than the old IC motors!!! My Sea Hornet, Sea Commander and Huntsman run brushless motors . My Crash Tender is getting the 5055 motor, so it will be interesting to see what it will go like!!

Thanks Jarvo

Fairey Huntsman & Swordsman by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
Hi Andy, I have 'twined both the 34" and the 48" Huntsman, i used 600 size motors in the 34, and 850 motors in the 48. Both were very quick, but, the run time was poor, about 10 mins. With modern lipo's or big Nimh batteries they would be a lot longer especially if you used brushless motors. Props, on the 34, they were 35mm x 3 blade brass, on the 48, they were 45mm x 3 blade brass. Sad but i sold them some years ago but now have a 48" fireboat to play with. Mark

Fairey Huntsman & Swordsman by AndyG009 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 12 days ago
Does any one have experience of models with twin motors in the Fairey Huntsman and Swordsman? (Or any boat) Would like what size the model was - what motor(s) were used and prop sizes, and was there any 'mixing' of motor control with rudder control.

http://r.ebay.com/OjgaMs Me mother finally finished the boat fenders, scale 1/11th ideal for Huntsman 31 or larger, also perhaps a Tug boat or other old school pleasure craft. A lot of attention to detail has gone into making these, 1 set offered. Stephen.

Hi Pilot I have the Precedent Huntsman 34" hull with the 3648-1450kv, 100 Amp car ESC, 2 blade 40mm 1.4 pitch CNC prop and at present only running on a 3S 5800mah Lipo. I am still working on the cabin and that windscreen. Installed the front, rear, toilet and kitchen windows and frames today. The boat is very quick in the 35-40KPHour mark, so it's not slow. Canabus

hi .thank you all for your help.i have built the boat to power setup stage the kit by the way is a precedent huntsman 31 wooden i.will look at the hobby king site keen to get on with it steve

huntsman 46 by canabus Admiral   Posted: 21 days ago
Hi Pilot If you are using 540 can size (35-36mm brushless motor) a 3639-1100kv 800watts, 3648-1450 1600watts or a XK 3674-1900 1769 watts. All run on 100Amp ESCs, but check the maximum voltage they handle. I use car ESCs with the electric fan on top because they run cooler at slow speeds and no water plumbing required. The same with the motors no cooling. Props for these motors 37mm 2 blade or 40-45 mm 2 blade. If you go for a larger motor for a larger prop, a L5055-700kv 1600watts same ESC, but, start with a 2 blade prop about 52mm. Battery a 3-6S 5800mah or more with a C rating of 40 plus. I have used the 35mm motors in 34 to 40" boats, but, for my 46" Vosper Crash Tender I am going to the 5055. To large a prop will cause over heating of the ESC, battery and Motor. A in line amp meter(Hobbyking 9598000004-0) is the one in use. It reads the maximum amps, so for run speed amps slow speed up to maximum as a hit the throttle hard will give you maximum amps.

huntsman 46 by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
Hi Pilot, first of all welcome to the forum. Do you have any modeling experience?? Which kit or plan are you using??? I would recommend an outrunner look for one with about 700 - 800 watt output, 3s or 4s rated with an ESC rated at least 100 - 150 amps, as a start with a 40 - 45mm brass prop. Kit or plan, reduce the angle of the propshaft to about 15 - 20 degrees electric motors can lie lower in the hull which was designed for I/C motors with their flywheel hanging below the motor, needing extra clearance. Suppliers. Have a look at the hobbyking site, for motor and esc, once you have the basic build underway, decide on the batteries you are going to use. Hope this helps as a starter, look round the web sites get more info and we can direct you further as to your requirements Regards Mark

Fender addition by Novagsi0 Commander   Posted: 23 days ago
Since reality TV has reached full swing on the box the Huntsman has stepped up a gear. The front fender has been fitted and incidentally my mother who made these, has been busy making another set she plans to offer them for sale via Ebay, to gauge what interest there could be.

Richards 48" Swordsman by olly49 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 29 days ago
I bought and built my Huntsman back in the late 70's. Decided last year to refurbish her. She is powered by a T600 brushless motor, 2 11.1 v lipos these are positioned midships, x50mm prop, tends to start bow down but when on the plane she looks a beautiful sight. I must say of all the boats I have this is the favorite one.👍

International Model Boat Show by Novagsi0 Commander   Posted: 30 days ago
Good show, I attended Saturday. Got a load of bits and pieces for my huntsman was certainly better than the model engineers show a few weeks ago.

Motor problem by canabus Admiral   Posted: 30 days ago
HI Richard I drop my prop angle to 9 and 1/2 degrees on my Precedent Huntsman 34" after removing the old IC motor. Running a 35 mm brushless motor on 3S and it's very quick!! More a speed motor than a motor cruiser. Canabus

Motor problem by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Richard, that lead acid is way too big and heavy. I Remember going on hols as a kid, car was loaded up, all family, roofrack, deck chairs, tent and so on, and Dads old Moggie Traveller would barely climb the Welsh hills! Same here, its just dead weight, ideal for a tug etc, no speed required, and ballast needed. This boat wasn't any slouch in its day, As Havelock says, it was originally built as a ic powered model so could stand being heavy. To achieve balance, its a matter of moving things around, not adding, so just move things forward, you will be surprised how the weight increases once you start adding Deck clutter, fittings and so on. Lightweight, is good. Your comment, stood up in the water at half throttle isn't going fast, its just bad weight displacement causing the bow tyo be too high. That setup would never have been that fast, the motor/battery combo will never cause a heavy ply boat to be going that fast its standing on end Couple of things to consider. Your nimhs, how many times have these been cycled, and what sort of charger are you using? A reasonable charger will give the information, if I know what you are using, Ill advise accordingly as you might not be getting the best from these batteries what prop are you on Think of an rc plane (if you fly them its easier) If the cog is too far back, the nose is pitching up, and its almost impossible to control, it almost porpoises in the air, and is very bad. COG is vital on a rc plane, nose heavy is better, only because its more controllable. COG is equally important with a boat, but harder to see the implications, the hull will give us false info, such as if the bow is up its on the plane, no, not necessarily, its not planing due to speed, its just out of balance. Shifting the weight radically will let you see this, sorry for the ramble, Wish you where closer to me I would love to help hands on👍 Ive tried to find a suitable video of my Huntman to display what I'm rambling on about. This video is poor quality, but it displays that boat moving very fast (25mph with on board data logger) but look how flat it is, its planning, as the forward 1/3 of the hull is out of the water, but its not standing on its tail, this is because its balanced. You boat is pretty similar in design to this so whilst you wont want to go this fast, the picture should look the same. This Huntsman weighs 6kg with batteries (lipos, you will NEVER get a nimh or lead acid to do this) and is 4 foot long, so quite a heavy old girl first constructed as an IC model in the early 70's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5-YmmElIfk&t=34s and here is a picture of my 3 foot aerokits fireboat, bow up, is it planing, no, its way out of balance, it wasnt actaully going that fast Hope that helps Paul
