[Score: 9/10] 52"/5800g Lorraine Powered by NiCad (7.2v) 3Amp/h Batteries - Comments: Built from a plan in a French magazine (Modele reduit de bateau) its a model 60 Pieds Open Chantier Sea World Montpellier France
this is my first blog! I got the plans for this yacht (60 pieds translated is 60 feet)from a model magazine (Modele Reduit Bateau Aug 2014) in France (used google translate to suss it out) Details as follows ---planked on frames - LOA 1344mm - beam 376mm - draught 320mm - mast height 1730mm - displacement 5.7 kg. It has twin rudders set at an angle. Where I sail in South France the wind often drops to nothing so I am fitting a small motor to save walking miles.!
HI Mariners I have renovated a 46 Inch RAF fire boat and have a question re motor and esc I have fitted a Graupner 600 motor with a probe 12 speed controller esc [which I bought a couple of years ago] when the boat Is running and loses the radio signal for any reason the motor goes Into full speed mode. I have two of these controllers and they both do the same thing! Anyone know of an esc that doesn't do this ? Ray
