    Yes My motors do go in rev. No my motors dont have water cooling on them, they get warm but not to a temp where you can touch them. Nor are my ESC water cooled but it is fitted if I needed to .

    Well thats Lifeboat done for another year. Not so many members of the public around this year. All the boaters seemed to have enjoyed themselves and took there boats home in one bit.
    Many thanks the SMBC members who once again helped to set the day up and put all away at the end. Cheers chaps. We are still counting up the pennies but it was a good effort by all.
    Till next year !

    HI Ive just been taking a look at this posting. Don't mess about with brush motors! I have fitted to my Slipway Tamar 2 Turnigy 1250Kv brushless motors, Hobbyking 50amp ESC and two 5 maH Lipos. 35mm props 3 blade brass type. I can't run it flat out as it tries to leap out of the water its that much power. The ESC can be water cooled but as they don't get hot without water I don't cool them. The batteries last about 40 mins.
    The motors are ยฃ20 a pop and the ESC are around ยฃ16 each. I'm never going to use a brushed motor in a model boat again.

    What a lovely day.
    The sun came out which always helps when you want model boaters to come along and play for the day.
    We had visitors from Luton MBC and others which had driven miles to find us. Thanks.

    The IC boys ran there boats till 11am then the scale took over with a short IC demo run just after midday. We now have a buddy box system so you can drive a real IC boat at the club so if you want to try our boat pop down on Sundays. Some members of the public gave it ago as well as some scale boaters. Most came away with a big smile on there face.

    SMBC set Luton MBC a challenge to make a bottle boat or two and then give us a race. Well give 20 model boaters some old pop bottles and it kept them amused. I said it was going to be fun. Chuck out your rc money pits and try a bottle boat.
    The day came to a close at 4pm with a few sunburnt body parts we made our way home happy.
    A very big THANK YOU to all who made the effort to turn out.
    BILL WARDER Chairman SMBC.

    Hello As Chairman of Stevenage MBC I can only say sorry that our web site is showing the 2012 date for our "Fun Day" . Our Web master has been told about this and will soon be dealing with the updates. Our web site is a free site and is not user friendly and it is hard work to get in and change stuff on the display.

    All that said Jeff dose update the dates on this web site. Thanks Jeff.

    Our Funday is indeed tomorrow Sunday 18th . IC and fast electric boats are welcome till 11.00 am the scale boats till 4.pm Why not pop down with your boats or even just come down and say hello.
    Happy boating.
