Hi. This should help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7FOoRGlR68 It is a video made on board by a model maker. lots of detailed images on the net, I used Google search and had a trazillion hits!! Good luck with this one, I am completing the Billings kit, it is quite old and the wood used is quite poor, I recommend to anyone building her should replace the old wood cut out sheets. This was my first attempt at using a bow thruster, made it from some micro plumbing PVC pieces , waste brass and an old motor, it works great and I recommend it as a nice side project. Take care and have fun, should be great weather for a little Delaware pond fun!! see ya at the waters edge. Mark.
A part built Solent just sold on eBay for £100 buyer to collect. I’m building one at the moment from plans bought on eBay (I’ve a build thread going as we speak). If you have reasonable building skills that could be an option?
Hi smear Welcome to the site. You can find models on e-bay from time to time and there are also copies of the original plans plus templates for the formers to enable you to make from scratch. There was a recent article in one of the mags describing a restoration and I suspect it will have resulted in a high demand for the models so they may not be that easy to find. Hopefully you will find one soon. good hunting Dave
Hi Neil, sorry but they do tell you that. See pic! Extract from the pdf file data on the site, which one can read before ordering! Check this out- http://www.componentshop.co.uk/pdf/P94.pdf You need the slots for the heat sinks cos you seem to have the 20A version. Which is more than you need for the Richardson I think. I don't need the slots cos I bought the 10A P94 Lite version. What do we learn? Slow down and read the manual and small print 😉 Cheers Doug 😎 Have a good break. Kit-Kat? 😉
Hello, I am the sven from germany / herford and looking for a building plan of : lesro "sportsman " from model boats to build this boat .. look directly the construction plans, I know there was as a complete kit to buy, but someone has or knows someone who still something drawings has for a replica .. my question, do you know someone who still has documents from the boat i'm looking for plans, drawings, bodyplan, scrive board or anything form the boat I'm glad about it, thank you who has something or knows can send me an e-mail email@example.com
Tx Doug - Looks like another piece of kit to put on the shopping list. Previously had just used a charger from Component Shop and when the lights stopped "blinking" to me that was it. Nothing is ever that simple 😉
Tx for the advice Mark - had been researching and your views seem to back this up - edging towards 2 x 11.1v lipo in parallel 2200mah or slightly bigger dependant on budget. which will be removable. May i ask what "C" rating you would suggest. Not sure my skllls warrant a pic build yet as my 2 previous builds were just modified plastic kits, basically copies of other peoples builds online, not just as testing as this seems to be.
Hi All This Thread was started to seek help on Brushless motors. I have used and built Action kits for many years and was friends with Craig Talbot who introduced the range. I posted this link in response to the original post http://www.componentshop.co.uk/p40e-marine-motor-mixer.html?... This unit is just for the mixer and does not include the ESCs and can therefore be plugged into and used with brushed or brushless ESCs. Doug' post previous to my comment showed the diagram for a mixer and twin ESCs that were for brushed motors. There are no connections at signal level to allow for the mixed brushless motor connections, only the one for the centre motor. Please read the thread title on Forum posts and keep comments relevant to the topic. If you wan't to ask about or discuss a different topic please post a new thread title.
