Deck Finished by canabus Captain   Posted: 6 days ago
Hi All The deck is all vanished and onto the cabin. Canabus

FLYSKY FS-I6S TRANSMITTER by canabus Captain   Posted: 12 days ago
Hi All The Flysky and Hobbyking Turnigy IA6 are the same beast. The plug on the back is for both trainer link and software update via special cable. The only problem is the manual does not tell you to hold down the cancel button for about 5 seconds to save your settings. Also you can get telemetry sensors for temperature, voltage and rpm from the receiver back to the transmitter. Canabus

Huntsman fittings kit. by canabus Captain   Posted: 18 days ago
Hi Novagsio The only place that my help you out is Westbourne model.co.uk, but, they sell to full kit. May sell the fittings kit. The original handrails from my Precedent fibreglass hull are total rubbish, but, I only got with my second hand unfinished boat the air scoops. So I plan on making the hand bow rail and windscreen. My boat is in the BUILD BLOGS on the site. Canabus

First Run by canabus Captain   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Guys Well today is the day. CG of the boat at 410mm from the bow and it sits in the water on the waterline. Cruised of at a slow pace with camera man taking pics. Up to 1/3 throttle and up on the plane, nice smooth turns with the rudder. Water flying all over the place!! Up to 1/2 throttle and sitting up nice on the plane. The boat handling as smooth as butter, the spray of water from the boat is about the same as one with spray rails. Pop up to full throttle and well pass scale speed, but by this time the camera man was not keeping up to the job. Totally happy with the boat, but still requires a few bits to finish the job. Enjoy the pics and happy boating. Canabus

Sunk Boat Marker Buoy System by canabus Captain   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi All The is my idea of a cheap marker buoy system to fit inside a funnel with no smoke generator. Tested in a bucket of water with only two 20mm foam balls, a piece of string and a lead weight. Worked well as the pictures show. It's only to mark the sunken boat position. Canabus

Finished by canabus Captain   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi All Polished the boat and installed the radio. Setup the ESC and off offset the rudder. Crew seat belted in and it's time to start the engine!!! Canabus

34" Precedent Huntsman by canabus Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Great work MUM !!! I moved over to brushless motors three years ago. The power of these things are unbelievable. I have a 46" Crash Tender which is getting a L5055C 700KV motor on a 4S 5800mah Lipo battery via 100Amp Hobbyking car ESC. Prop 2 blade CNC 52mm 1.4 pitch. No loaded RPM 10360 against the 850 at 9778 rpm. NO water cooling on the motor and the car ESC has an electric fan, so at low speed you have no cooling problems. The two motors are about the same size. As for battery connectors I use XT60 which I think are better then the Deans. The ESC's are very easy to setup with the program card. I can post my settings which I use on all my boats. I also have the smaller 34" Precedent Huntsman which I am restoring. Canabus

RC Boats in salt water by canabus Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Wash in fresh water with a bit of soap and lube the drive shaft. WD40 spray around the prop and rudder. For lube I use plumper silicon grease as it is water proof.

New deck planking by canabus Captain   Posted: 2 months ago

New deck planking by canabus Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi All Stripped off the old planking and started again with different wood glue. Canabus

Seabreacher by canabus Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Steve The Graupner Speed 900BB Torque specs are 6-40 volts, 6,500 rpm, 54A amps, shaft 6mm, dia. 51.5 mm, length 95mm and weight 645 grams. A brushless motor like the Hobbyking L5055 600kv is 11.1- 22.5 volts(3S -6S) power 1500watts, 55 Amps, shaft 6mm, dia. 50mm, length 55mm and weight 311 grams. On 3S=6660 rpm, 4S=8880 rpm and 6S=13500 rpm. The brushless motors are far more powerful and with an ESC with handles up to 6S(22.5 volts) you would have rpm's to drive a water jet unit. Canabus

Deck Veener by canabus Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi All I used the same glue on the stern over filler, no problem. It's not the Tassie Devil, they are all noise, it's my mate's Tassie Tiger!!! Canabus

Deck Veener by canabus Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi All After sanding the deck, I vanished with two coats that was OK. A bit of light sanding between coats and added another coat. Check it the next day and a lot of section on the bow the veneer had lifted !!! The stern section is OK. It's the outer veneer and it's all one piece, used the same glue. Very disappointed!!!! Canabus
