    πŸ’¬ Dumas Cobra

    Hi, I'm in the process of building the same Dumas Cobra. How do you keep the motor cool? is there any way I could get pictures of the motor, wiring set up and how you placed the batteries in the boat. I retired in 2004 and started the model at that time. I've been working on it since I retired.

    πŸ“ Newbie radio control question
    12 months ago by JBRCfloats ( Recruit)

    Hi,
    Just thought I would comment regarding the difference between Mode 1 vs Mode 2. I fly aircraft, but the configuration should be the same using the radio for boats.
    Mode 1 - Elevator/Rudder stick on the left. Throttle/Aileron stick on the right. Mode 2 - Throttle/Rudder stick on the left. Aileron/Elevator stick on the right.

    I'm getting into boats now and my radio that I will using is set up in the mode 2 configuration. The choice depends on what you have used in the past or the type of radios your boating buddies use. in aircraft flying we always use the same modes just in case someone has to step in and take over the flying. in boating I don't think this a criteria due to the fact the boat would go down like aircraft do sometimes.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the great advise. I was thinking about making smaller amounts of the resin so that I could control the heat. Nothing worse that spending a lot of time on the tug and then have the hull destroyed while adding ballast. You guys and gals over there really build beautiful models.

    Hi,

    Great build. I'm in the process of building a Mid West Tug Boat and reached the point of needing to place some ballast in the bottom of the hull. I noticed that you used epoxy. I know that epoxy can get hot when curing and if you using a molded hull how do you control the heat issue so as to not warp the hull? I plan on using shot gun shot and been a bit worried about damaging the hull.😁
