Warning by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Japanese safety boots are the go then?

How many is to Many by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
I have two working,one almost there and another scratch built coming up, plus 5 static models. We are strange folk, but must have something in common to be building and sailing them.

Futaba Attack 2ER by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
Thanks to all of you who gave me some advice. I found out that The crystal on the transmitter was missing. It was in the box, so plug in and great joy! Tears of happiness. I bought this set years ago in Dorchester, Dorset on a trip to see my parents. I think it is a bit cheaper to buy here, but I will compare next back in the UK. Cheers, and thanks again guys, much appreciated.Hughie😎

Futaba Attack 2ER by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Dave, No problem, I appreciate your advice. I will do as you suggest, and see how that works out. Cheers Hughie

Futaba Attack 2ER by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Dave Thanks for your reply. No, I didn't try the RC before the aerial got broken. Yes, I have stripped the wire and twisted them together, but haven' t soldered them as yet. I haven't put the battery plug in the servos or vice versa.I will try what you suggest and let you know how I got on. Cheers Hughie👍

Futaba Attack 2ER by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
I have installed a Futaba Attack 2ER receiver plus 2 servos in my fireboat. Both lights are 'on' on the transmitter, and there is the correct voltage coming from the battery supply to the receiver. When I plug in the servo ,the servo moves a bit. However, the transmitter has no effect on the servos. I have checked and rechecked the connections. The aerial was cut, but I have joined the parts together temporarily. Can anyone give me any advice? Cheers Hughie

Futaba antenna by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
Thanks Yax, I thought of doing that, but lacked confidence. Cheers, Hughie👍

Futaba antenna by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
Thanks Dave, for your advice. Will sleep soundly now. Cheers Hughie👍

Futaba antenna by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
I have a Futaba Attack 2ER system installed in my Fireboat. Through my own haste, stupidity, the antenna on the R122JE receiver was cut, about 1" from the receiver. I know the antenna/aerial must be kept to a specific length. Does anyone know if it is possible to join the 2 ends together, or replace the antenna? If neither of these is recommended, does anyone know where I could buy a new receiver. I have had no luck, so far, in Oz😭

Clinker Potting and Crab Boat by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 months ago
Nice detail.I think the wheelhouse should be at the bow, just my preference👍

SMIT NEDERLAND by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 months ago

Sea Breacher by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 months ago
Thanks. I am interested in building a RC sub, but am concerned about water entering the hull.

glorious b 428 by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 months ago
Have you any plans for this boat? Nice job!

Skye by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 months ago
Scratch built. Copy of Scottish fishing trawler with belt drive to propeller shaft from small electric motor

HI From Munich by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
Like you made control line aircraft at school, and then returned to it a few years ago and joined a club. Good luck with your build.

Sea Breacher by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
How do you prevent water entering the prop shaft?

getting old by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
I agree with boaty. My models have improved and I am more persistent than when I was younger. Hugh

RAFCrash tender by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
Started the boat when I was eleven, now I am sixty-nine.inspired by your site and want to complete it and sail it.

HI From Munich by Hugh Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
I was given a RAF crash tender kit many, many years ago when I was eleven, and a boy in Yorkshire. Now live in Queensland , Australia. I think it was a too much for me, and my Dad wasn't interested, too busy........ and well not a good Dad anyway. It was left partly constructed for years and then I completed the hull and installed an ic engine. Left for more years until I saw this site. Bought a fittings kit and now my boat looks very like others on line.still haven't sailed it, as more needs to be done. I will put up some photos soon. It is interesting to see the differences in the crash tender photos from the members. I guess it reflects our personalities and our boat's histories.
