    New hull for my boat Nora
    Due to the high amount of inner components, was necessary for me to exchange the first hull by a bigger one, maintaining the super structure, not yet finished I show you some pictures of it
    Nora, the Sealab 002
    This is a boat completely developed by me, it's not a reproduction of any other vessel, I was designing every parts and adding them to the boat, it's a floating laboratory, in this case the alternate name is Sealab 002, now it's still under construction, once finished will be an RC boat, with a lot of diferent remotelly controlled groups of lights, video camera and video recorder controlled from the transmitter, and also it will have temperature and battery monitoring, confirmation of RC signals, alarm protocol in the case of signal loss, bluetooth or ESPNOW external monitoring of signals and so, by the moment it's the second of a laboratory boats series, the scale is 1/72

    From my point of view, you can screw the motor as usual, using an aluminium L shaped support, if the motor is an outrunner one, simply turn the "L" 180 degrees looking at it from the top side, and screw the back side of the motor, the screws to fit to the hull, must be below the motor. Just to cool it, being outrunner the autocooling is more efficient, read the motor's datasheet, to know the working temperature and the max one, supposing you need to cool it down, you can use a fan, you can mount it over the motor but not blowing the motor, just blowing in the opposite direction, you will exhaust hot air, and the cool air will replace it coming from below, and cooling the motor at same time, if i can help you some more, simply let me know it

    πŸ“ Flysky TH9X with OpenTX and AFHDS-2A

    Thanks for your answer, yes, I was binding the devices several times, and I agree with you, just changing the module everything should work, but the reality is that the new combination didn’t work, even testing a lot of different communications setups in the transmitter, may be the old operating system is able to handle that but not the open tx, but as far as I know somebody has this combination working

    Dear all I have a couple of this transmitters and I was changed operating system to OpenTX, but when I changed the transmission module, to have 10 channels, I discovered that the protocol it’s not longer AFHDS, instead of it new modules and receivers have the protocol AFHDS2, any one of you have this emitter working with FS-IA10 module?

    πŸ“ Foghorn

    First of all, thanks to every one for every answer, as I was answered to Rookysailor the material from action electronics looks too weak for the use I need, referring the switches I normally make my own radio controlled switches, enclosed I send you two pictures of two of my diferent switches, I have more models, and even this two can work in mutiple programmable ways, but my main problem arises because I knew the horn programmed by Rijsard Malinowsky, and the sound is almost perfect, but, in the same board still work the motor sound, and I need to silent the motor, unfortunately I had no time enough to come inside the program, and change the code for not to have always motor sound, in the meanwhile will be good for me to locate an electronic foghorn, with nice, realistic sound, that's the reason to ask you, because i don't know everything, and all of you toghether know much, much more than me, then thanks again for your valuable answers

    Good morning to everyone, I need to have a good foghorn sound in my current boat, could you recommend me something?, preferably something I can mount by myself, I have no much problems to work in electronics.
    Thanks.

    Do you alight the lights remotelly, or just locally?, do the lights share a single group or maybe you have several groups of lights?, could you please, show us the device used to switch them on?

    The software to design the parts is FreeCad, the printer is Prusa MK3s, slicer is Prusa Slicer, and Pronterface to send the file to the printer and control it, the most of the parts you can see in the pictures, have been done using white Prusa PLA, some parts, as the battery holder and so, have been make using orange Prusa PETG
