Happy Hunter by liamduck Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 44"/7300g Happy Hunter Twin Propellors (4 Blade 50mm) Direct Drive to a MFA Torpedo 800 (4 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 7Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Action P94 ESC - Comments: Found this kit on a well-known auction site and bought it for £100. It is the original Robbe kit and fittings included. There was no command module and so I have devised a way of having working anchors, tow, crane and warning beacon, bow thruster, nav lights and searchlight. It was a bit of a struggle to balance her properly and she needs quite a lot of ballast. A real handful, you might say but she looks really well on the pond.

Who bought Robbe? by Ianh Seaman   Posted: 13 days ago
Try Cornwall model boats as the Graupner have revised their range. As suggested look for Krick and Ro Marine Good Luck

Who bought Robbe? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 14 days ago
Hi Ron, Graupner bought the marine model part of Robbe a few years ago. They market a lot of Robbe boat stuff and electronics, but not all!, under the trade name 'roMarin'. Most roMarin products are also available through 'Krick' amongst others. Just look for 'roMarin'. Cheers, Doug 😎 https://www. style='background-color:yellow;'>

Hi, I wondered if anybody might have a copy of build instructions for the above? I would willingly pay for copying and postage. Thank You. Keith. Above should read Robbe NOT Robbie!

FS: Robbe PT-15 KIT by bustedknuckles Apprentice   Posted: 2 months ago
From my personal model stash: PT-15 This kit is the 1/40 scale Robbe kit approx 34 long and 9 inches wide when built. A new kit, but I do not have the original box for it. . It APPEARS that everything is in the box including the ROBBE PT-15 Fittings Set 1098 (For PT-15 Kit, No 1097). Stuffing tube, motor and prop are included. The plans and an instructions book that does have English instructions is also included. Contact me if you have any questions about the kit, or would like detailed pictures. Price is $200USD plus shipping ( keep in mind it is a large box...) The price of this new is $390 plus tax see for more information I also will be listing a Robbe SCHNELLBOOTE KIT shortly, for the same price.....

Aerokits Patrol Torpedo Boat by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Peter, we are all 'Standing on the shoulders of Giants'! Folks like Canabus, Dave_M and Jarvo, to mention but a few, showed me the way last year. Couple that with my insatiable desire to know 'How Things Work'! and here we are 😉 The Robbe should give you years of trouble free service. Have fun, Doug 😎 PS the 20A rating of the other charger is 'marketing blurb'! No one charges at 20A, unless they are into pyrotechnics and demolition😲

Aerokits Patrol Torpedo Boat by MouldBuilder Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
Thanks Doug. Finally found the Robbe on Amazon for £42 plus delivery. I took your advice and ordered it as it appears to be the only one left anywhere. I will leave the battery until I get nearer to the re-launch. I also purchased the monitors and balance unit. There is no point in starting from total scratch. Thought it safer to follow your lead. Thanks. 😊Peter.

Aerokits Patrol Torpedo Boat by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Peter, seems a bit pricey to me. For me two disadvantages- 1 Only a titchy 2 line display for setting up and reading the batt status, can't put much info in that, 2 External DC supply only. The Robbe version I use can be either 12V DC at the lakeside, or mains at home. Personally I wouldn't buy it for that money, but that's just my opinion and wadda I know😉 Surprised about CMB 😲 I always thought it was a real shop! Ciao, Doug 😎

Hi MB, can only say what I have which works and I ain't set the house on fire yet 😉 Not surprisingly for someone living in Munich both mine are from German companies! Robbe Power peak Uni 7 and Graupner Unimat 14. There are later versions of both around nowadays but you can still find these on Amazon / Ebay etc. Both of them have automated programmes for various Lithium types, NiMH / NiCad (not recommended these days!) and SLAs. Robbe is now defunct and their Marine stuff taken over by Graupner and marketed as RoMarin! Pics also show the Balancer Adaptor Boards, necessary to connect the balancer cable of the battery. This ensures that each cell is equally charged 😊 I also included in the pics the little battery Capacity Testers I use. They cost around a tenner and are very useful for checking the capacity before a run or charging, as well as the voltage and capacity of each cell, which gives an indication of the battery condition. I found some duff cells with the tester in a few batteries I'd only just bought 😡 When looking for / buying a charger look also for a LiPo Safe bag to charge them in. E.g. LiPo Guard. Charger may cost 50 quid upwards depending on how many charging outlets you want and how many Bells & Whistles. But I get on well with these two 😉 I like the Robbe version cos I can charge two LiPos at the same time. Also in the pics are a few of the charging cables I made up with gold 4mm bullet plugs for the charger end and Tamiya and BEC (for my Plastic magic stuff!) at the batt end. Such adaptor cables are also available 'ready made' but I just like fiddlin' 😊 Hope this helps, Cheers Doug 😎 Nearly forgot! Can't say for sure what current your motor will draw cos I don't know all the other details, but a 40" boat will need some shove! So I wouldn't go below the 5000mAH if you want a half decent run time. A 40" boat can carry a bit of weight! And batt power is more useful than pure ballast 😉 Recommend a little Wattmeter to check the max current draw - see last pic. Basic theory! A fully charged 5000mAh (or 5AH) batt can theoretically deliver 5A for one hour, or 10A for half an hour and so on! Say your set up draws 20A with the 'pedal to the metal' then a 5000mAH batt will 'theoretically' last 15 minutes. Theoretically cos other factors are in play; initial charge state, temperature, internal resistance of the cells, cable losses etc. The latter is why I only use gold connectors! The higher the batt capacity the higher the price and weight. So suggest you start with the 5000 and see how (long) it goes. Then check the weights of higher capacity batts (and the bank account / management approval😉) Bon chance mon ami!

Hi Doug! When I purchased the then Robbe Neptune. I sure could have used you. Some 30-35 yrs ago! to translate the instructions they came in German! It took a bit of doing. translating but, I built the model!

krick romarin "ex robbe" by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
The Robbe factory was sold off probably with most of the moulds and equipment when the company got into difficulties. There are some kits available and Cornwall Model Boats stock the available range. I would check the Krick site for their postal charges to the UK. The demise of Robbe and Graupner was a big set back for model makers universally and its a pity many of the resources were lost before a rescue was possible. I agree with Doug E-Bay does have them listed occasionally and I have seen them at Model Boat Shows bring and buy sales. CADMA is possibly the next show (2nd - 3rd Jun), the Mutual Model Boat club appears to have moved to September not forgetting The Model Boat Convention on 25th - 26th August.
