850 Brushless by canabus Admiral   Posted: 11 days ago
Hi Andy Slightly more power with a brushless motor is a no go!!! Brushless motors the same size are far more powerful !!! But, the about same RPM a Turnigy L5055-700kv(500 rpm more on a 4S(14.8 volts) Lipo battery would be a good replacement. Mind you at 1600 watts( about 2 and 1/4 HP) these will used in a large boat like a 46" Vosper Crash Tender or a 46" Sea Queen!!! My move into brushless motors I have found that they are 7 to 10 times more powerful and equal to, if not better than the old IC motors!!! My Sea Hornet, Sea Commander and Huntsman run brushless motors . My Crash Tender is getting the 5055 motor, so it will be interesting to see what it will go like!!

Most dependable battery by canabus Admiral   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Capt Larry I have used the Turnigy and Compact Zippy ones from Hobbyking with no problems for the last three years. Note only charge them at the maximum current equal to the battery capacity, eg 5800 mah = 5.8Amps. Lower Amps is better. Canabus

RSS P71 Sovereignty by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Many thanks for the Turnigy tip👍 much cheaper than the 20 quid Action /Component Shop version 😉 I hated wasting channels, and multi-channel sets were horrendously expensive😡 so many many 🤔 moons ago I made my own 4 function switch decoder for my destroyer, home made PCB, a few 5V CMOS chips, driver transistors and 5V 5Amp relay outputs. Pics 1, 2 & 3. Gave 4 functions Nav lights, Signal Lamps flashing, Whoop Whoop siren, and smoke unit from one proportional channel. Still seems to work 30 years later!😊 Around the same time I added a winch for the crane on the stern deck and also made a home cooked PCB with a simple forwards / backwards motor driver; again CMOS chips, driver TRs and relays. Pics 4 & 5. Pulled in well but there was no free-run mode on the winch so it needed something like a tin o' beans on the hook to run it out 🤔 . Lovely smelly etching for the PCBs 😆 Ferrous oxide!? Or was it ferric chloride? Never did like chemistry, I was a physics man. But it worked😊 Most of the bits were sort of 'lying around' at work😉 BTW: if anyone needs CMOS or 7400 series TTL chips I still have pretty good stock! Nowadays it's all plug n play and such things are miniaturising so fast one day they'll disappear up there own whatsits! Back then half the fun was doing it yourself and squeezing the utmost out of a 2 or 4 channel radio. Happy days? 🤔 Cheers Doug (AKA Rambling Man😁)

I like the microswitch idea. If I have enough channels I usually use a Rx operated switch style='background-color:yellow;'>turnigy-receiver-controlled-switch-1.html?___store=en_us

Motor problem by canabus Admiral   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi I use a Turnigy 180Amp watt meter and power analyzer(part No.9598000004-0) 0-60 volts , size 85 x 42 x 25mm, 82 grams. Requires your battery connectors. Use it in line with the main battery on board the boat. We used it on my mate's Spearfish and got 72.88 Amps on a brushless motor at 37 KPH. Canabus

Aeronaut Spitfire by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 23"/1200g Aeronaut Spitfire Capable of 20mph and a runtime of 10mins Single Propellor (2 Blade S Type 25mm) Direct Drive to a Hobbyking outboard (2 Blade S Type) Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) Batteries Controlled Through Turnigy ESC - Comments: This is my aeronaut Spitfire. This was my second build following a lifetime of RC Aircraft. The kit was a joy to build with really nice quality wood and components with good instructions. Sourcing the outboard was a challange but Hobbyking had the solution. running on 2 x 7.4v Lipo and Turnigy water colled ESC this should go very well. Not had a chance to run it yet, but the bath test has shown no leaks and sits well in the water. Actionman and his clothing, helmet ect where sourced from eBay for about £12, bargin!

OK thats it then. Now need to read up on the Turnigy settings. All the best. NPJ

I agree Neil😉 The Turnigy is a good set and the RX nice and compact and light. Cheers Doug 😎

MFA TORPEDO 500 / BATTERY INFO by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi al, this is the sort of thing we mean - style='background-color:yellow;'>turnigy-180a-watt-meter-and-power-analyzer.html Not too expensive but can save a lot of expensive mistakes and misery! Used for checking before you get on the water as well as for testing batteries on charge and discharge. Cheers Doug 😎

3 x Brushless Motor control? by tomarack Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi, as I wrote,I have no experience with Action Electronics products. Regarding the use of internal mixers in HKT6A , these did not suit for this case,neither Turnigy TGY9X.There is always one main signal as control and the other one(or more) as a signal dependent. I needed to mix two independent signals and that is why I chose an external simple mixer! To Dave M .. excuse me -I have no experience with brushless motors but in this case I do not know why it could not work. It is a mix of two control signals only ...What's the problem with that, if I use brushless motors?

FLYSKY FS-I6S TRANSMITTER by canabus Admiral   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi All The Flysky and Hobbyking Turnigy IA6 are the same beast. The plug on the back is for both trainer link and software update via special cable. The only problem is the manual does not tell you to hold down the cancel button for about 5 seconds to save your settings. Also you can get telemetry sensors for temperature, voltage and rpm from the receiver back to the transmitter. Canabus

Hobby Engine Richardson Upgrade by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Crack on Man👍 Know what you mean about many deliveries. I've become friends with our DHL driver, we meet almost every second day. I order 6 items and the daft supplier sends 'em in anything from 1 to 6 deliveries! The GF is getting jealous😉 Glad to see you got the Turnigy i6👍 The RX is nice and compact isn't it! Have you thought of a build sequence for the 'special FX' yet? Cheers Doug 😎

Hobby Engine 'Richardson' Tug Upgrade by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Neil, so far so good👍 My version is the Southampton, same hull and deck, including well hidden screws😡 but the older 40Mhz version without any special effects. So my answer to the 'Why change its' and 'It won't fits' is - If HobbyKing can do it why can't I? - and better! For a decent and inexpensive 6ch T/RX set I can from personal experience recommend the Turnigy HT-6 or TGY i6 or similar from HobbyKing for around 45-50 dollars 42 pounds from UK or EU warehouse. style='background-color:yellow;'>turnigy-tgy-i6-afhds-transmitter-and-6ch-receiver-mode-2.html Very versatile and easy to program, i.e. kill all the aircraft and heli widgets🤔 This set (and similar) was discussed in depth elsewhere here on the site. Look under 'Tank steering' ! Happy fiddling, Doug 😎
