Test Run by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi Rod, sadly this site only accepts picture formats for uploading 🤔 To show a video apparently you have to go the roundabout way via U-tube. Shame, was looking forward to seeing the 'lime beast' in action. Cheers Doug 😎

JOINING BATTERY & RECEIVER CABLE by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
Hi Les, then I assume that you need something like this harness with JR/Hitec male & female plug/socket. This one also has a third plug for connecting the battery to a charger when the switch is in the off position. DON'T use this feature if you are using a LiPo battery!! There are several other versions without this third plug available here I guess the RX battery is a fairly small NiMH and also has the JR type plug. BTW: something to check before switching on- Does your speed controller have a BEC circuit? If so it supplies the RX as well so you don't need an RX battery at all. Or doesn't your yacht have any auxiliary motor and ESC? Happy sailing, Cheers Doug 😎 Looking forward to the video of the insulting tape 😁😉 or is that what I keep seeing on the news with Mr T??

Finally it's completed by rolfman2000 Captain   Posted: 9 days ago
Must admit, that looks even better than I imagined. The colour and graphics really set it off well, and will help in spotting on the river. I, like the rest, look forward to seeing the video of it in action. Thanks for letting us follow your build Rod. Do you still have plans to sell the shells ? Best wishes, Dave W 😀

Finally it's completed by Rod Commander   Posted: 9 days ago
Six months ago I drew up the plans for my Jet Sprint boat and at last it is completed and ready for its first test run Very happy with results so far so hope it performs well on the water Have leak and ballast tested it and all good so here's hoping for a successful first run up the river Has been a real challenge at times but well worth it and a lot of satisfaction and fun making it I have named it "Rapid Hoppa " so I hope you all like it Will post a video of its on the water performance as soon as I can

Tear into by Tica Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 16 days ago
[Score: 9/10] 17"/600g Tear into Single Propellor (2 Blade S Type 20mm) Direct Drive to a Turnigy 3800KV 2627 (2 Blade S Type) Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) 2Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through 40a ESC Sky Walker ESC - Comments: A modified toy boat from EBAY, the original electronics has been removed and a BL set-up and 2S LiPo battery has been installed. Quick, "cheap" and fun just like a "Kinder egg" 3 things in one packaged ;-). The set-up do allow it to run on 3S but it's more scream than more power. Short video

Soldering 1/12 Scale Brass Railings by Ballast Commander   Posted: 17 days ago
Thanks Ken I already did and I watched the video's time and time again before I attempted what you see above !!! It's alright Marky ! Mine has a new rubber flex and has been overhauled by an electrician, thanks for your concern!!! I found I was really comfortable with it and my confidence grew with every solder !

Soldering 1/12 Scale Brass Railings by KenThompson Lieutenant   Posted: 17 days ago
Hi, if you look on u tube, you will find lots of videos of how to solder, the thing is,, they make it look so easy! I couldn't solder for toffee, until a visit to utube. Have a look, you will be surprised. Cheers Ken

Balsa Boat 1970's made to Model Boat plans. by Novagsi0 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 19 days ago
That video was from 9 years ago and that was the camera on the latest phone for the time. Since power boats are banned at our pool this is the only video i have of the model running, sorry. Posted for posterity. MY other boat 26cc kawasaki engine was same time pre IC's ban.

Balsa Boat 1970's made to Model Boat plans. by Novagsi0 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 19 days ago
Old boat of my fathers built from scratch in balsa wood, and fibre glassed inside. Use to run a small diesel engine, I took over it and initially put an Orbit 805 motor in then later a better spec model car motor 545/550 water cooled. Finally I swapped it for a 1.25cc glow engine and this video demonstrates the speed with the glow engine. Was almost too fast for the hull, tight turns caused it to nose dive, and plane/wobble badly on its side. Great fun and cheap to run.

Decks by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 24 days ago
Hi Norm, found an interesting site about Lusty's operations in the Indian Ocean March - May 1944, Battle for Ceylon. Including video of her operating with USS Saratoga. Lots of other info and photos here as well. Happy browsing, Doug 😎
