    I didn't give it much thought when I said tap off 2x6volt in parallel. I will probably use small 4s lipo to power lights etc.
    Thanks fo pointing this out. Still a long way from installing ancillaries.

    Hi Havelock, this is my first boat build,been doing rc model aircraft for 60 years,I know all there is about brushless motors and lipos.The kit specified lead acid batteries and I am using a 2_1 mfa motor and gearbox not quite sure what esc I have got. Lot of this was guesswork.The lead acid batteries will complement whatever ballast I need.2x6v in parallel and I can tap of 12 v for lights smoke etc I think.

    Decided not to double plank as per kit instructions but skin the first planking with thin cloth 0.60 oz. Lot of rubbing down,now awaiting top coat
    Quick tip when using aerosol can or airbrush,use a large plastic storage container on its side as a spray booth.

    Hi Dave I've just started this kit and although I have done modelling, rc model aircraft,for years I am still trying to get my head round planking the hull.
    I will be following your build closely, and if you don't mind post a photo or two in your build. Looking forward to more.
