Norstar Wave Princess resurrected by AllenA Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 4 days ago
Thanks Dave. Good to have some feedback and I will certainly post a video asap. Think I will upgrade my ESC in the near future and I am really tempted to install a 700 BB Turbo. That may be gilding the Lily though. Just out of interest I picked up the MacGregor II at the same time as the Digimac III. That one works as well. They were good quality fair play.

Norstar Wave Princess resurrected by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi AllenA Welcome to the site. Your model looks superb and you have restored to almost original condition, including the MacGregor! Looks better than the one I used to own! The smaller prop will be much better, I have cooked a couple of speed 600s with a too large prop. The lip at the front may not bwe correct but it certainly fits with the period when the model was built. Good luck with the new prop and perhaps you will post a video so we can all share your experience of this nostalgic model sailing. Dave

Battery problems by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
Hi Allan Sound like a good solid set up. The smaller prop will work much better with the brushless. I hear what you say re seawater, but I believe I would hose the model down after each sail just to be sure all the saltwater was removed. Looking forward to the video when you get the opportunity Cheers Dave

Battery problems by Patto Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 5 days ago
thanks Dave i got a seaking 120a watercoold brushless ESC by Hobbywing which handles the power well. Same motor as before got a 38m 2 blade prop looking for a 3 blade. i was originally useing the 12v battery to run the motor but it was no good now use a lipo which i have installed under the deck in front of the motor.the large battery is running the watercooling pump and is also the prefect weight for ballast.NO problems with the salt water as i have got stainless steel, brass and copper fittings and a good flush threw the cooling system with fresh water. might be some time before i can put up a video because the council is draining the pool next week for the annual winter maintenance which is a bummer as there other suitable ponds handy. cheers Allan

3D printing by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 days ago
Hi Wayne, yes i agree he seems bonkers but, he has loads of Youtube videos making 3D models, Planes, as well as Hovercraft, very clued up on the computer printing and programing, have emailed him for a copy of the printer program so hopefully i will be approaching a printer to make me one of these Mark

This guy appears to be totally bonkers, but check out the video! Cheers Wayne

Glue Applicator by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 days ago
Hi Joe Did some more research and found a video on the Deluxe Site This really is a very fine nozzle dispenser and uses capillary action to deliver just the right amount of solvent to produce an invisible joint. They also recommend using for superglue accelerator by applying after the joint is closed to assist the setting process. Much neater way than brush or spray and will not result in marks on the surrounding area. For anyone building fine scale models a really good aid. Cheers Dave
