    πŸ“ HMCS AGASSIZ (Corvette)
    3 years ago by Dom of Essential RC ( Chief Petty Officer 1st Class)
    Flag
    View Video
    This truly stunning piece was created by Barry Sharman of Southampton international Plastic Modellers’ Society (IPMS UK). A replica of the HMCS Agassiz with a mind boggling level of detail not only on the outside but also on the inside visible through cut out sections of the hull. Barry invited me to see the other side of the model and was amazed to see several crew members restoring that side. Spectacular and no wonder it was protected by a glass case that Barry kindly removed so I could film it without chance of picking up any reflections.

    Paul Chilcott built this stunning floating replica of the 'Voyager of the Seas' in under 12 months. The hull was carved from a single block of blue foam. The detail on this cruise ship is remarkable and even features a climbing wall, 'flow rider' and outside cinema just as the full size vessel. Commentary provided by Steve Dean.

    MS Voyager of the Seas is the lead ship of the Voyager-class of cruise ships operated by Royal Caribbean international.

    πŸ“ FeiLun FT-011 HIGH SPEED Ready to Run electric Racing Boat
    3 years ago by Dom of Essential RC ( Chief Petty Officer 1st Class)
    Flag
    View Video
    Been flying planes for many years and never thought to try boats until very recently. Just tried out the Feilun FT-011 and thought it was awesome for a first time single hull boat. Fairly quick, good run time and the fact that it will self right if it flips is a big bonus. Could not flip it myself despite some full speed tight turns but think it probably would if jumped some waves. You would expect for a relatively cheap outfit that the seals might not be perfect but after the first run there was virtually no water inside. 5.5 minute running time as well which seems decent for a 4S2200 pack. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to taking it out on the water again soon. Filmed with the Panasonic AG-UX180 4K Pro camcorder.

    3 years ago by Dom of Essential RC ( Chief Petty Officer 1st Class)

    View Video
    Having reviewed many planes, quads and cars over the last 3 years so it was refreshing to get a boat in the water. Why didn't I do this a long time ago? Bit addictive to say the least. Was surprised how quick this thing was on 3 cells. Lots of tight turns and no hint of it tipping. And a good run time not far off the manufacturers stated 8 minutes. Balance seemed to be quite critical though. The stock 3S2500 in the battery holder had it on step from the go. I dropped in a 3S2200 and despite pushing it to the furthest forward point it would bog down when it lost momentum. Easily solved with a little lead on some velcro next time out. Otherwise really impressed. Zero time to set it up. Nice it has rates dial for steering on the transmitter so can go between hooligan style tight turns and smooth high speed turns. Looking forward to taking it out again.
