17-28 Torbay Severn Lifeboat by TheBlacksmith Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 8 months ago
The Southampton has lots of screws around the deck but some are under the bollards so you need to remove them, there are two aft bollards which need to be gently prised loose but the others are scewed to the bulwarks. I changed the radio in mine as well as the motor/gearboxes and fitted a v.tail mixer from with 2 speed contollers as well as converting the battery holder to take a six volt nimh pack. The effect is awesome. Happy sailing😁

I have just purchased a graupner 2001 wp silver spirit rtr to use whilst I build my kit. The basic set up supplied is a speed 500 motor with basic on/off servo. I would like to add a speed contoller but which one? Is this easy to do? Thanks Mark

Stiletto by aprestney Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 years ago
Hi" All . Thought I would put some photos of my last winter project for all to see ! This model took approx 3 month to rebuild from an ebay wreck . A 1980s lesro Stiletto speed boat kit.A total rebuild was needed . Siletto running set up Is a Johnston air cooled speed 600 electric motor. 50 amp speed contoller 7.2 volt at4600mh power pack which will lift her out of the water at very good speed. Siletto Is finished of In dark mahogany stripwood vinneer & Ivery white / post box red .I do think the older colours look better on the older models . I sail my boats at Sheringham Norfolk enjoy the photos . From A prestney
