All hooked up, nowt happens... by rapidair65 Seaman   Posted: 3 days ago
Following this with some interest as I am about to convert my Arun lifeboat to a brushless set up using Turnigy Aerodrive motors and marine esc. Hoping to keep the two lead acid batteries for power as they make good ballast!

RC....mixers? And other unknowns.. by BW3 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
Ok... Currently trying to build a Itaieri Schnellboot, ...but am questioning if what little I think I know to be correct/ workable... I have amassed the following : 3- Hobbyking ST3007 1100KV brushless motors each direct drive to 32mm plastic props.... (2 right hand drive and 1 left hand drive props... swapped over leads on on motor to get it to run as yet untested the left hand prop) 3- Turnigy nano tech 3s 3000mh 25-50C Lipo ( Have got a balance charger and board , flame proof charge bag , battery voltage check/ alarm units, and will check and charge them await the only local help I have in RC / lips battery a helicopter flyer who has no experience with RC boats ) I just read the post on WTail mixer and wonder if I need that or if my current unkowning idea to just connect all 3 ESC ‘s together to one channel on the radio , again was give Eflite Blade SR HP6DSM 2.4GHz to try out ,Will this unit work or do I need something else , currently will/ can use all 6 channels but would / could use more if I had them ... last time I had anything to do with RC was a a kid/ teen and back then you had ground radios and flight radios and the two should not be mixed .. Ok please advise , how far off am I or am I still within range of keeping it simple ? Thanks All Bill

Mcgregor 1990s transmitter/receiver by mturpin013 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Thanks a that's a great response. and probably says dump it and buy a new one, its for my 5yr old grandson and I saw this on Hobbyking, what do you think for a first beginners set? https://hobbyking.com/en_us/ style='background-color:yellow;'>turnigy-5x-5ch-mini-transmitter-and-receiver-mode-2.html @ £18.97

S.H.Grainger Formula Powerboat by vortex Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Steve im not sure now regarding motors as they have water cooling cans on but Surfury runs from memory a 1075kva motor Turnigy 160 A speedo watercooled on 2x2s 5200 lipo`s in series ie 14.4volts with 52mm mocom Alum prop approx 3hp. I think the Tornado has approx 2045kva motor same speedo + lipo`s x 50mm nylon prop both do scale speed to as fast as 40/61 IC and look great on our choppy water with just prop and rudder in the water. Both motors will take 6s if you like ballistic? All gear from Hobby king. Try the IC first, post some pics please

PT 109 upgrade? by camyaj Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
My 1/24th Schnellboot 5' was running on 3x850 mfa motors changed to 1 x Turnigy 3648 1450kv outrunner operating on a 3s lipo. . more than enough speed even with the outer props just freewheeling

Cheap motor for a quick fit, but what prop gents?... by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Martin, Welcome to the world of 'working' models😉 It also cost me a small fortune when I started to get into brushless and LiPo stuff last year after retiring. That Simprop ESC should be fine for your Supermarine (if you ever find it 😁) See what you mean about the prices for bigger NiMhs 🤔 OK, 'Go LiPo young man', BUT remember what I wrote above; Watch 'em! Any other printing on that 2012 motor? Maker? kV rating? A pic might help. What do you mean by 'a couple of LiPos'? 2S? Re Brushless ESCs; have a look at the Turnigy range at HobbyKing, or Quicrun at HobbyWing. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/power-systems/speed-controllers/... https://www.hobbywingdirect.com/collections/quicrun-brushles... You can probably find a UK shop for these; Google them! I use the 30A Quicrun version in my Sea Scout works fine with my Propdrive 2830 1000kV motor and a 3S LiPo. See pic. Cheers, Doug 😎

Current loading of a Motor by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
HI CB90 I use a Turnigy 180Amp Wattmeter and Power Analyzer which plugs in line between the battery and ESC. Canabus

ESC info... by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Mornin' Martin, Pure curiosity! Which motor is it? Re LiPos, recommendation difficult🤔 Different Brand names seem to prevale in UK and Germany, unless the ubiquitous Turnigy! Whatever the brand and wherever the shop is you buy from they nearly all seem to be manufactured in southern China, Shenzhen mostly! ( I have kit for a Shenzhen class modern destroyer of the PLA Navy!) The price for the Overlanders looks good, and if the shop values it's reputation they will be good, and they're nearby if the wheel falls off👍 Cheers, Doug😎 PS Your 'stuff' should be on it's way tomorrow. Weather cooled down 15° or more, currently 18° and drizzly rain with occasional short sharp downpours all day today - one extreme to the other! Mail coming today re 'Brass Bashing' etc.

ESC info... by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Martin, this one's in stock, and in the UK warehouse! 😊 https://hobbyking.com/en_us/ style='background-color:yellow;'>turnigy-plush-60amp-speed-controller.html Cheers, Doug 😎

ESC info... by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Doug, thanks for that, but I've just seen that every bloody one is out of stock! I figured it worth spending a little more on a Turnigy. Unfortunately so, clearly, have a lot of others. I'll see if they're available from others. I checked the 152VO site and most use a Turnigy 60 A it seems and I assume are well pleased with them. Thanks for the clarity about testing though, Doug. It's good to hear what one guesses at being confirmed by an expert. Cheers, Martin

Sea Trials and mods. by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
It’s been a while since the boat had it’s maiden voyage on the lake at St. Albans and I’m pleased to report that it looks really good in the water and goes like stink if you open up the throttle. Sadly I still don’t have any decent video of the boat yet as I can’t film and drive the thing at the same time, but I do have some static wide shots from my GoPro. When I do the video I’ll ask a cameraman mate to do the honours, maybe I’ll put the GoPro on the bow and then the stern to get some low action shots…the storyboard is already building in my head!! These early runs were great as they showed up some minor problems that needed attending to. I found that it needed ballasting slightly as it was not sitting on the waterline evenly from side to side so I flattened out some old lead water pipe and cut it into small sections so that I could add ballast incrementally. I did this in the ‘domestic test tank’ and once I was happy the lead pieces were fixed in place inside the hull with some super strong double sided tape. The ESC needed a little programming adjustment because I had forgotten to set the low battery level point to ‘off’ as I am using NiMh batteries and not LiPo’s , that was the cause of the short initial run time on the first outing…..DOH !! The batteries are now held in place by Velcro straps on some bearers that I added, otherwise a battery change involved cutting cable ties and replacing them at the lakeside…not very practical. The volt/amp/watt meter is also now on a proper bracket so that the display is more readable. I have also changed the charging connection from the nasty Tamiya connector to a nice little panel mount XT 60 connector that HobbyKing sell, it comes with a handy blanking plug that I have drilled for a retaining cord. I have also finally got around to upgrading the firmware on my Turnigy i6 radio to the 10 channel version so that I can assign the lighting to the switches properly and have the rotation of the searchlight on one of the two rotary knobs. I can use the old 6 channel RX in the new boat….blog coming soon.

upgrading Turnigy i6 to 10 channels by robbob Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
I finally got around to upgrading my Turnigy i6 system from 6 channels to 10 channels today.😁 Happily the firmware update went like a dream and I was able to install a new 10 channel rx in my RAF Crash Tender and then reprogramme the new auxiliary channels to the functions I need. And of course a long press on the exit button saves all the settings properly.....as we all know now 👍 😁 This has freed-up the previous six channel receiver which I now need for the new boat project which is now well under way. Robbob.

Mk2 RTTL 2771 by colindavies Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Upgraded to Brushless 2x1100kva Turnigy motors, Scratch built 1/24 scale. I've included a photo of a real one, just in case somebody else tells me the colour scheme is wrong, East of Gibralta they where white. I'm sitting on the engine hatch nearest the camera, that was 1969

What transmitter , receiver by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi I have both the Turnigy and Flysky 6 channel ones. The same, great units and you can upgrade the switches and control knobs to a number of different colours if you wish. Check out Banggood. Canabus

What transmitter , receiver by ukengineman Petty Officer   Posted: 4 months ago
Flysky i-6 is amazing value for money for a 6 channel computer radio. Hobbyking sell the same set with their Turnigy brand as the TGY i-6. You can buy the TGY i-6 from Hobbyking in the UK for around £45:- https://hobbyking.com/en_us/ style='background-color:yellow;'>turnigy-tgy-i6-afhds-transmitter-and-6ch-receiver-mode-2.html
