Friday's Child Fairey Huntsman 31 by BOATSHED Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
Hi Brianaro, many thanks for that. i am about to go and check that out. As well as my old 70's wooden Precedent Huntsman, I also have an MFA Spearfish still in the box not touched yet. I had one back in the 80's with an Irvine 61 in it and it was a great fun boat. I did plan to do the same again with it but with the constant banning of using IC engines on the ponds around area's in the UK I suppose it will end up brushless. I know they are if not faster then IC now but the cost battery wise, now being retired the funds aren't as easily found now. The sad part is I still have 2 new SC 91's, 1 new SC 61 and a Irvine 120 all still new, never been run. I think there might also be an Irvine 61 that has no box. As well as a Zenoah 26c all pimped up in purple only run in ready to be put in a boat. Shed full of both engines and boats, some boats still new in the boxes still waiting to be built. Hopefully I will get to build them before I pop me clogs.

I am a great fan of the Fairey Boats I have a Precedent Huntsman model and would love to see a couple or three pictures of a real life one. Last time I saw one was back in the early 1970's on it's way out of Newhaven harbour.

aeronaut classic by BOATSHED Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
I am also upgrading the prop shaft, I have purchased a 4mm shaft to use that has a decent outer casing. All other boats I have built the side chine rails have all bee 1/4 x1/4 inch rails. I am just so disappointed with some of the substandard use of certain parts. I just feel for the price they are cutting costs to up their profits on the boat. I have built a few of the older AeroKits like the RAF crash tender, Sea commander, Sea Queen and Sea Hornet as well as the Precedent Fairey Huntsman, and these all have a substantial set of side rail to fit and even the bulk head pieces are a much better thickness of ply. I would just not recommend the Aeronuat kits to anyone myself now. I was just going to fit a standard Gruapner speed 400 motor in but still unsure. I was thinking maybe a brushless may just be a bit overpowering her. but as I say still unsure, I may put in a brushless yet who knows. Keep us informed on here as to you progress I am keen to see your finished model. I suspect yours will be finished well before mine as I have shelved the build for now. Happy modelling.

Hi It's probably a Precedent hull. Check out the model boats mag forum site. They have a guru on the Huntsman !! Dave Milbourne. Canabus

Too Powerful Brushless ? by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 months ago
Hi All I am using Hobbyking 3639-1100 and 3648-1450kv motors in that size boats(Sea Commander, Precedent Huntsman and SG&K Gentleman's Runabout). 60 Amp ESC with either 3 or 4S Lipo batteries. Props 2 blade 40mm 1.4 or 1.6 pitch. The motors are a straight change over and the only change to the ESC is the low voltage setting for the 3S and 4S batteries. Canabus

Are you going to let DENIS the Menace skipper your boat ? Don't let him damage.😉

Hunstman 31 fittings kit for Christmas from Slec by Novagsi0 Admiral   Posted: 1 year ago
Yes they do. Their model is tiny ,this is the precedent 31" huntsman. The fittings look the perfect scale. In my opinion there too big for their model.

huntsman 46 by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
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

Motor problem by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year 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

Prop Shaft Angle by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
HI AndyG009 The steep angle was to get the diesel motors into the boat. On my Precedent Huntsman I decreased the drive line angle both at the prop and motor ends. The 35mm brushless motor was less diameter than the flywheel of the IC motor. I can still fit a 45mm prop with 5mm clearance, but, using a 40mm 2 blade. I quick test on Saturday and the boat has no problems with prop torque at full speed. I made a little larger rudder, mainly a bit deeper. Rudder control is very good. Canabus

It's looking great Novagsi0. I only hope mine looks half as good as yours when I finish it. Best wishes, Dave W 😊
