Hi Biscuit, I have just watched your video's, nice to see more on the water. I see you have also posted pictures of the Graupner Rhode Island F1 tunnel hull. I also have one of these and as yet have not got around to giving it a run. I do not live near any ponds locally where I can be sure I'm allowed to run my models. 16 miles for an electric isn't far I also have IC powered and the nearest for those is almost 40 miles. I get very disheartened with the hobby but still cannot get it out of my vein's. I curious to know where you have fitted wedges under you Rhode island. What's the chance of posting a few pictures of the under side of her to give me some idea as to how you have done this. It would be nice to see so that I could also give it a go so as to make her a little better on her maiden run. Many thanks in advance and kind regards.
Happy that you liked the video , will try to post more videos. And please don't call me sir haha? I'm still 23. About the harbour , when I registered here I didn't find my country (Bangladesh), can you please do something while your an Admiral 😛
Excellent video Sakibian, well done👍 and you're very brave to sail such a tiny boat in waters like that 😲 Hat off Sir 😉 Cheers, Doug 😎 BTW: you should put this boat in your 'Harbour', just click on 'Boat Harbour' on the left of the Home page and then 'Add your model boat' at the top.
For what it's worth folks (by popular request😉) I just posted the pdf reading/downloading instructions in the 'Anything Website Related' forum. C.U. Ciao, Doug 😉 PS Also applies to other files attached to Posts, such as photos! Sometimes you can also expand the photos to be able to store them in a higher resolution! 😉
I found this hull at thingiverse last year. I printed the hull from a local shop and rest was handmade. Firstly I bought a 2426 4200kv brushless 2-3s which was too powerful and too heavy for the boat size. The length is 38cm. And the 30Amp esc was also too big for it's size. After that I tried small 180 brushed motor with 20A brushed esc w/brake. It was perfect (still it's heavy😂). The bridge and deck is made by 1.75mm pvc,torpedos are made of wooden pencil. Small battery space takes a 2s 500mah lipo. 30mm 3blade propeller. YouTube video link is here: https://youtu.be/KZdmZ8_Z0IE
Hi Haig, if i had such Administrator rights I would gladly add such a section! I'm just a 'Bod' like you! Reading PDF files is definitely one of THE most asked questions! Best I can do is post the instructions in the 'Website related' forum. But who looks in there!? All's well ....! Cheers, Doug 😎
Hi Doug, Thanks. I can download and see a 'save as' as an option. I have not come across your previous explanations but that's my fault. Maybe the website can have an FAQ section with these explanations.
Shouldn't make any difference John! The 'Save or Open' Window box (!) comes from the operating system of your device. The box includes an 'Open with' option drop down box which displays the PDF handling programs available on the device. What are you using? PC or Dumbphone? Cheers, Doug 😎 PS Nuance is NOT free like Adobe Reader, but much better 👍 BTW; if you install Nuance Power PDF and uninstall Adobe Reader all your pdf files will automatically be opened by Nuance!
Oh dear oh dear oh dear! How many times have I explained this 😲 (So often I copied the text into a Wordpad file 😁) All you have to do is Just left click on the Adobe icon so the Media Gallery opens with the larger icon. Left click on [Download], top left corner of the media gallery window. Windows will then ask you if you want to Save or Open the file. left click 'Open', your pdf reader will open it. You can then save it to wherever you want. If you are using a 'Dumbphone' - I don't know🤔 I don't! BTW: I use Nuance Power PDF, much more versatile than Adobe and without the security weaknesses! Cheers, Doug 😎
