Julieth 4 French fishing boat by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 days ago
Hi All As the owner of two Hellen fishing boats, I was looking for something with better access, but, about the same size. I found the French version of the Hellen. Larger hatch and a raised section forward of the wheelhouse. Also this is my first strip planked boat, I picked up an IKEA wooden blind for $5au with a 100 strips of 3mm by 25mm and 1100mm long.

Cygnus GM32 by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 10 days ago
Hi Cygnus GM32 I am using these Hobbyking ones https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hobbywing-quicrun-60a-2s-3s-wate... Links to setup the ESC on Lipo and Niamh. I have used them on 12 volts , but, they will not work on 6 volts. You can crash straight from forward into reverse !!! Running a 70mm 3blade on one Hellen fishing boat (weight 14 pounds) and a 60mm brass 3 blade on the other Hellen.

motor sizeing by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 24 days ago
Hi Jim I used a Hobbyking D3548/4 1100kv , a car ESC (hk60A-SL)(electric fan on top for cooling), program card(HK PROG-CARD) and a 40mm 2blade prop(test out the one on the boat first). Battery a 3s 5800mah 30C Lipo. This is in my Sea Commander and gives a good turn of speed with a long run time. ESC set up:- 1 Cutoff Voltage for 3S=10.2 and 4S=13.6 2 Start Power Percent=5% 3 Advance Timing=4 4 Run Mode=2 5 Brake Force=1 6 Drag Brake Force=1 7 Neutral Range=1 8 Initial Brake Force=1 9 Reverse Force=1 Canabus

Multi tool Kits by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Brianaro I have a HILDA from Banggood. I third the price and all the fittings fit the Dremel. The Hilda looks the same as the Dremel with a different badge. The Hilda is powerful and with a speed control as well. The Hilda kit comes will a flex lead as well. I am very happy with mine. Canabus

Range Safety Launch? by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi The 382 was a Fire Float Mk1(40 foot) (No. 90) converted in Feb 1950 to a Seaplane Tender. Max speed 21 knots. The MFA 800's are 5167 rpm( unloaded) @ 12 volts/ 5.3 Amps. Replacing these with 3639-750Kv brushless on 2S Lipo batteries(7.2 volts) would give you 5400 rpm( unloaded). 2S 4000mah 25C Lipo's(one for each motor) weigh 221 grams each. Canabus

Hi MikeP The Torpedo 800 is 5167rpm@ 12 volts and the diameter is 52mm. Canabus

SuzyQ by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Guys If you use Hobbyking 3648-1450kv 35mm brushless on a 4S 5800mah Lipo, 100Amp ESC and a 2 blade 40mm prop it will go like the clappers !!! You would have to make it from plywood to take 1600Watts(about 2HP @ 21,000 rpm(unloaded)!!! Canabus

Hi Dampfgerd The Z drive would suit the boat better and look more period correct. Canabus

Brushless outboard... by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Westquay I had the F1 outboard from Hobbyking which had a 28mm 3000kv motor. I ran it on 3S with a 45Amp ESC. Great unit, but, clean and regrease after each days running. Also they did not have spare flex drives. The flex drives do not last very long. I had it on a 24" shallow vee, trim and balance right would run at full speed just on the prop!!! Totally insane to drive. I did not install to 2836-3700kv with 700Watts!!! Canabus

Inspiration for beautiful boat builders ;-) by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
HI Westquay I am a scratch builder, so this is my 1920 SK&G Gentleman's Runabout with the 3639-1100kv brushless motor under the dash. Runs a 3S 3700mah Lipo battery on a 37mm 3 blade prop. On the first the driver left his mate standing at the pub and nick off with a bit of skirt !!! Canabus

Hellen Fishing Boat by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi All Fast track the boat to get it in the water, still has a few bits to do. I replaced the geared motor with a rock crawler 55 turn HPI motor, a lot quieter. The boat ran well and a good turning circle. Trim the end stop on the transmitter to 80% for the next outing. Remove a bit of ballast from the stern as it was to low at the stern in the water. The side fenders require a bit of lead in them to hold them down. Canabus

Hellen Fishing Boat by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi All Masts all set in and started on the rigging!!! Ask my good wife to make some sails for the boat. Canabus

BRUSHLESS ESC by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi RHBaker If the ESC exceeds the motor draw that's all is required. I only use two sizes in my boats, a 45A for small boats and 100A for the larger boats. The both use the same program card !!! These are the Hobbyking car ESCs because they have an on/off switch, small and have an electrical fan on top. Very good for low speed running and no water plumbing required. Canabus

Hellen Fishing Boat by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi All Installed the masts today and also mounted the dingy on the hatch. Canabus

Hellen Fishing Boat by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi All This year I bought an unstarted kit, but, sold it to a club member. A month later one of the club member wish to swap for a faster boat and as my Sea Commander required a repaint and fittings. I thought a swap for a very good working Hellen was a good deal. So are making a dingy and replacing the broken prop with a brass one I had my second Hellen for the year. Three weeks ago another Hellen pops up on Gumtree(aka EBAY), so it was to cheap not to buy it. While waiting for it to come, I made a new stand, a dingy with oars and a set of fenders. When it arrive the mast where laying on the deck broken, but , the posted pics show that. The motor is a 11 to 1 geared MFA Como 919 D which runs OK. A spare new plastic prop. Started on the repairs, like the keel and deck around the mast bases. The aft mast was broken in half, so I brass sleeved it. The aft sail was missing and the forward sail was all glued up, so I bin it. So this is the boat pics so far. Canabus

Vosper Rescue -target towing launch by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Personally I would have used the kit and a template and built it with ply. Save the kit to sell on!!! Canabus

What transmitter , receiver by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi I have both the Turnigy and Flysky 6 channel ones. The same, great units and you can upgrade the switches and control knobs to a number of different colours if you wish. Check out Banggood. Canabus

Krick Police Launch by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi MouldBuilder You ESC will work on 12VGel batteries as well !!! Using the NiCad link and no brakes. Works great in my Hellen Fishing Boat. Ordered another one as I have another Hellen coming. The price was too dam cheap. Canabus

Bow wave suppression by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi wunwinglo Try moving weight in the boat to the stern to let the bow come up at high speed. Canabus

What do you do when... by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi All This is my idea which fits on a number of boats. Canabus

1940 Chris Craft by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi All Removed all the motor mounts and drive line. As I am using a 28mm brushless motor, I realigned the new 4mm drive line and decrease the drive angle. Made a stronger rudder with a little more depth. Remaking the engine hatch with two 10mm magnets to hold it down. Fill in a lot of the frame forward of the motor to add strength. Canabus
