aeronaut classic by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 11 days ago
Hi A 28mm brushless between 1000 and 2000kv is OK for this size boat. It depends on how fast you what to boat to go. The area you have to run it in. Canabus

More deck planking by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
Hi Chaps A lot more planking added and still more to go!!! It's looking a bit smart of a fishing boat it's poetic license!!! Canabus

aeronaut classic by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 17 days ago
Hi Sandgrounder There are a number of speed 400's with voltage range from 4.8 to 7.2 volts. The revs range is between 16,400 to 22,000 rpm. So 28mm brushless like a Prop Drive V2 2836- 1800kv(shaft 3.175mm) on a 3S Lipo battery with give you 19,980 rpm. ESC 45Amp. Prop 30-32mm 2 blade. If it's tight of battery space Hobbyking have small ones you can parallel together like the Turnigy 3S 1500mah 25C (73 x 33 x 27 mm). Regards Canabus

Deck Planking by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 24 days ago
Hi All Started the deck planking with veneer and added some LED lights. Canabus

Decking by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi All Installed the deck and filled around the edges. Gave the hull a quick run and it handle very well. Good turning circle and at 50% throttle still over scale speed. 3/4 throttle looks about right. About to start planking. Canabus

Hi All Finished the dingy, hatch, skylights and companion way. Added some paint, matt 131 green for the hull, under water the hull is matt37. Yellow for the trim bits with matt vanish for the wood work. Canabus

Brushless motors (again) by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Steve I started with the Hobbyking 3639-1100 kv in my Huntsman with a 2 blade 40mm prop, 3S 5800mah Lipo and a car 60 Amp ESC. Upgraded to the 100Amp car ESC and a straight change over to the 3648-1450 motor. All from Hobbyking. Good units and have no problems. Also a the price will not break the bank book!!! Note, change the uni-joint to metal as the plastic ones will not handle the power and break. Canabus

Hi Ian. A Mahogany deck with light strips between would look better and another colour for the cabin, but, yes to the brass portholes. Canabus

Julieth 4 French fishing boat by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months 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. Canabus

Cygnus GM32 by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months 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: 3 months 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: 4 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: 4 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

SuzyQ by canabus Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 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
