    πŸ“ Fairmile c class maiden voyage

    Finally installed electrics, I’m using a action electronics p94 for Port and starboard motors and a mtronics for the centre motor ,maybe some ballast needed at the bow and definitely a bigger amp hour battery as only got about 10 mins before it began to get low ,not bad for its first outing though

    Hi,I agree that the ply is a afterthought as in the photos I’ve seen it appears to be missing,as you said ,it looks like it’s a range safety launch.I found these pictures of one that was in Malta being used for the coastguard ,I think I’ve found my colour scheme

    Slowed the rotation of the gun down with a servo slow and added a spring from a pen to take out the judder,working better now

    Not sure if it is a perkasa as the bow seems a different shape from the photos I’ve seen on the net,also It did come with 2 pictures one of which is of a mgb 325 which after a google search comes up with it being a fairmile c,which looks the same as the model ,The hull is constructed from fibreglass as is the deck,but doesn’t look homemade,maybe preformed when brought from a supplier.The cabin is ply but again looks precut.
    I’ve decided to make the rear gun move by adding a servo and y lead from the rudder servo but it’s not a very smooth movement yet so more work there to do
