Working radar by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Julian My 1:32 Trent lifeboat has a similar radar housing to your model. I made my radar casing around a very small servo with the feedback removed plus the the internal pins to allow for continuous rotation. You can remove the bottom part of the servo casing to make it even smaller. Mine sticks thro the top of the radar case and I plug the radar scanner onto the serrated drive. It worked fine but I subsequently removed the electrics and drive the motor via a voltage reducer ( I make my own based on a 317 chip) but they are cheap to buy. The real problem is the noise of the cheap gearing in the minature servos. OK on the water but very noisy if you are exhibiting inside. See pics Dave

Working radar by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Julian As Doug has already commented this is a very small coreless geared motor that reduces the revs down to slow speeds. They are incredibly small powerful and quiet. I have a stripped down minature servo in my Trent lifeboat which gives the required speed but it is exceptionally noisy, especially when used in a display environment. This motor is the best I have found on the market and is certainly suitable for your purpose. I do hope you manage to find the solution for your radar and that you share how on the forum. Cheers Dave

Hello, Firstly is the lifeboat kit still for sale? If so, does it come with instructions as well as plans for each stage of the build? Finally, my budget would be around the £475 mark, would this be considered as a reasonable offer, obviously if not I fully understand. Thank you.

SPEEDLINE TRENT LIFEBOAT by Vickers1979 Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
I've had problems with them as well, with they're figure and missing parts contacted Adrian time and time again then finally an email from him saying there the parts are on route to me no sign, so back on the emails to him 2 weeks later they turn up, I think you just got to hound them.
