Midwest Cranberry Isle by Grandpa Commander   Posted: 10 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 36" Midwest Cranberry Isle Single Propellor (3 Blade) Direct Drive Powered by NiMH (7.2v) Batteries - Comments: Recently purchased this boat built by Don Sutton, Scale Captain, Metro Modellers Toronto, Canada 🇨🇦. Don built the boat about 15 years ago, but to make room for a larger new model he is selling older models. This style of Yacht has long been a favourite of mine which will be my winter scratch build project. Having this working model in my workshop will assist me with the project.

1/10 scale figures 6" - 7" by Grandpa Commander   Posted: 15 days ago
Here is a Lobster Yacht. Not it does not need "pots" just some people, a few glasses of wine, cheese, and table to go with it.😎

1/10 scale figures 6" - 7" by Grandpa Commander   Posted: 15 days ago
I just purchased a Midwest Lobster Yacht which was built about 15years ago. The figures are for it. Looking for male and female passengers and family. I have the full sheet plan which says it is drawn on a 3/4"=1"scale. My forth coming winter project, is to scratch build a second one of these beautiful boats using the model as a guide and template along with the plans.

Working radar by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
Hi Julian Only 8pm when I posted so not that late. May be small enough but is there a splined drive output underneath that top casing? You may need to add a short extension to the output. Could just be a bad pic as other sellers (Rapid) show similar with a spline above the top casing. I attach a pic of a similar type to the one I used. This is one that burned out in my yacht. Metal gears so kept the case for spares. The motor melted! 23mm long 10mm wide 25mm deep from base to bottom of spline. 18mm if you remove the bottom casing. Regarding suitability: are you intending to run the motor direct from a battery? The motor is very small and you will need to keep the voltage and current low (2v) to avoid overheating. The pulse internal driver will take care of this but without the electronics the motor needs protection. Using the pulse system from the Rx will require three wires and a spare channel on the tx/rx. Hope you can find a suitable servo Cheers dave

Servos & motor having a wobbly by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
Hi EricMB There is certainly interference as the Rx light is flashing almost constantly. The rudder servo looks like a small type that I have had problems with (twice) on my RG65 yacht used as the rudder servo. Initially try disconnecting this and see if the symptoms disappear. If not reconnect and disconnect the leads from the ESC to the motor and see if the problem disappears. It could also be a faulty battery connection so check the leads and try moving (twist and pull) them whilst switched on. Let me know how this goes as there are other things you can do to solve the issue Dave

Rasta Craft - Jamaican Pleasure Boat by Krampus Lieutenant   Posted: 23 days ago
1 JUL 17 - Using a borrowed Lisa M yacht hull made by German manufacturer Krick and the cockpit of a scratch built I made earlier (now defunct), I'm now working on this new vessel. For no logic reason, I decided to use Jamaican Rasta culture for inspirational purposes. Just something different for may flotilla. Water tested with a 30A Mtroniks "Tio" controller, a 500-series motor, a 10.8 NIHM battery and a 40mm propeller. A winning combination for this boat. I added spray rails and just painted the hull in yellow

Legal Limit by Krampus Lieutenant   Posted: 29 days ago
Original design "Express Cruiser" type boat. Old home-made fiberglass hull built in UK in the 1970s and rescued from previous owner's garage. Model built during April-July 2015. Approx. 1/24 scale. In trying to emulate a Bertram Bahia Mar boat, I ended up with an originally fictitious design. Real life boat could be a 32-footer (9.75m) yacht. 3mm 9v LED navigation lights system. Runs on Mtroniks G2 3A Hyper BEC 6-12V 15A Constant controller, Biao123 A2122 brushless motor, and a NiMH 10.8v battery.

Pinkie Pie by Krampus Lieutenant   Posted: 29 days ago
Model kit made on or about 1969 by defunct German firm Robbe based upon Chris Craft Roamer motor yachts of the era. Hull appears to be inspired on 1950s Chris Craft Constellation series. Model tried to emulate a 46 feet version. I got this one half-built and adapted as a gift for my child inspired in the "My Little Pony" characters. Approx. 1/20 scale. Authentic Chris Craft Roamer 46 measured 46 x 15 feet. It runs with a 4-bladed 40mm metal propeller, 320A 7.2V-16V ESC 30A constant, a NiMH 9.6v battery, and a Mabuchi 540 Motor.

Richards 48" Swordsman by ChrisF Seaman   Posted: 29 days ago
Yes, good to hear you are making progress. I won't be starting building a Swordsman until getting on for winter and that depends on one of my sons moving back out to give me some room! I've pretty much finished the plans though. In the meantime I've bought an Infinity Hydropro 650mm yacht for some summer sailing.

Bademenuss by Krampus Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
Altered Krick Lisa M model kit seeking realism. Inspired on 1970s 40, 42 and 43 Hatteras, Uniflite and Viking Double Cabin American yachts. 9v LED navigation lights system. Approx. 1/20 scale. Real life boat could be nearly 39 x 13.7 feet. Similar real-life Hatteras 40 Double Cabin yacht measured 41 x 13.7 feet. Runs with NiMH 9.4v battery, an HPI Racing 1145 Gt 550 Motor 14.4V, and a 40mm 3 blade propeller.😁

what fittings for a plane prop by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Chris and Sonar I bought mine at the Blackpool Show and Brian offered me the top at the same time. I believe he intends to make a part kit in time and the top I and my friend have were from the development stage. Perhaps if you give them a ring and speak to Ann or Brian they will also sell you the top. Certainly makes for a strong boat and is relatively quick to build if you have model aircraft experience. There are running formers on the base so they help keep the model relatively straight in the water. Great fun especially if there is no wind for the yachts or the weed is being problematic. Dave

Mini-12 by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Nice setting. I see you use pond yacht type hulls. We have to in the summer due to floating weed in our lake. Is this a kit or scratch built? Certainly looks fun and I see you are training the mate for his masters ticket!

Fairplay X - Plastic Magic! :-) by saintsalvio Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
I used the stack two motors; the circuits and the esc so as the control radio of the tiny submarine i got for the purpose; the weight was right to float correct by the waterline; you can see it on a video on my little Youtube channel (look at Salvatore Mazzarella ) rescuing a sunseeker predator yacht with many glamour ladies in the bathub. P.S. unfortunately I am still living at work!

Shelduck by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Don't worry, you're sure to find it as soon as you look for something else! 😉 Then you'll have a spare - or an excuse to build another yacht!!! 😎
