    (Pleasure Craft) "Jessica" A Sea Scout renovation
    Originally built by my Dad in the early sixties, fitted then with a Taycol Target and two very wet lead acid accumulators. First renovation about 26 years ago for my daughter Jessica, fitted with a 6V Decaperm. Performance was VERY sedate. Perhaps fitting for a Broads Cruiser? The Taycol will now go into the Danish fish cutter I am currently renovating. First two pics show her condition, incl. engine room, last year after about 25 years in the cellar. Last three pictures show current condition after extensive renovation, see 'Build Blog Jessica' and refit. Video shows her Sea Trial end of May https://youtu.be/b0BWJ3duzDw Now just cockpit fit to do and suitable crew to find. Can't 'select' Speed here as she wasn't equipped with GPS! But quick! Now she planes well so I guess I've turned her into a Sport Fishing Boat!? Rating I also can't select for myself, that's something for you guys to do! ;-) (Motor: Propdrive 2830 1000kV) (ESC: Quikrun 16BL30 Hobbywing) (5/10) Update: Crew have reported for duty๐Ÿ˜‰
    (Naval Ship) HMS Belfast
    Performance not yet known, still in the fitting out dock. Power is actually 2 x 6V 4Ah. ESC will be Graupner Navy V30R. Maybe 2 for differential control to support rudder. I've left 'Number of Props' as Please Select cos Belfast has 4 and this ain't an option!! Long term plans for smoke (borrowed from model railway kit!) lighting and gun control. Have already bought magicians 'Flash Paper' for main battery gun flashes. Ignition using old 'out of work' glow-plugs? Any ideas welcome :-) Ship is Graupner Premium line. NOT IMPRESSED with quality of cast resin parts, lots of air bubble depressions :-/ Fair amount of rework / repaint necessary! (Motor: Speed 540 x 4) (ESC: Navy VR30 or Viper Marine. Trials on 40MHz then 2.4GHz DX6) (7/10)
    (Naval Ship) Graf Spee
    It's a Graupner premium line ATR! ;-/ Wanted some 'quick fun' while working on more complex constructions (HMS Hotspur H Class Destroyer 1936, 1:72 and Type IA U26 also 1936). Didn't work out that way! On first test of motors and ESC I discovered that the shafts were so badly fitted that they were binding ;-( So back in dry dock for some hull surgery! That's why some inputs are missing above. Plan is to gradually add functions and special effects; lighting, gun controls, magicians Flash Paper for gun flashes. Maybe fired using my old glow-plugs!!?? Now I'm freshly retired I have more time for this ;-), as long as Gisela doesn't drag me off around the world too often ;-) I also have HMS Belfast from the same series (approx 1:128) also awaiting fitting out. More soon - don't hold your breath please ;-) in the pipeline is some 'Plastic Magic' with Ark Royal, Hood and Bismark all to 350 scale ca 70-80cm. Sorry been in Munich for over 30 years don't think in inches any more (except when buying mag wheels for the chariot!) Cheers, and as my German boating friends say 'Immer ein Handbreite Wasser unterm Kiel!) = I wish you always a hand-widths water under your keel. I sail on the lake in the Ostpark near me in Munich. Very convenient, right next to the Biergarten! ๐Ÿ˜Ž (Motor: 600) (ESC: Graupner Navy V30R) (5/10)

    Hi Peter,
    Neutral??
    In a DC circuit there ain't no neutral.
    I can only assume that the 180โ„ฆ is from Pin 3 to the load.
    In which case go for the 120โ„ฆ.
    If I recall correctly you are using a CMOS 555 IC.
    In which case it will switch the full supply voltage to the output (pin 3).
    I am assuming the supply voltage is 6V?
    If that is correct and the Vf of the blue LED is ~3.5V, and current is 25mA, then you can safely go down to 100โ„ฆ or perhaps even 82โ„ฆ.
    R=V/I = 6-3.5/(25/1000) =2.5*1000/25 =100โ„ฆ. QED๐Ÿ˜‰

    BUT!!! IF the IC is the bipolar NE type it will only switch Vsupply - 1.7 to the output (pin 3).
    And IF supply is 6V then Vout = 4.3V.
    R=(4.3-3.5)/(25/1000) = (0.8*1000)/25 = 800/25 =32โ„ฆ.

    Hi Peter,
    I guess these are ceramic capacitors.
    224 mean 22 x(10 to power 4) in Picofarad (pF) = 220000pF = 220nF. Or 0.22ยตF.
    I.e. the '4' means the number of trailing zeroes.
    Don't know where you 'looked up' the 1nF (1000puff as known in the trade!๐Ÿ˜ฎ)
    The leading 2s must appear in the final value!
    Thus 1nF would be marked 102 and 10nF 103.
    47nF should be marked 473.
    After the value code there is usually letter indicating the value tolerance; J, K or M indicating ยฑ5%, ยฑ10% and ยฑ20% respectively.
    So, to finally answer your question ๐Ÿ™„; I would use the 47nF capacitors. (=0.047ยตF)
    Older ones may be marked .047.
    Cheers, Doug

    Hi Peter,
    "This was good as well but it would be nice if the blue flashing light was a little brighter."
    Are you using the same flashing circuit as in your Police Boat?
    If so, reduce the resistor on the output pin of the 555 (pin 3) to 180 or 150Ohms.

    How are you dealing with sealing the prop shafts and rudder push rods?
    In my U25 the prop shafts had rubber 'concertina' boots.
    Rudder control is via a Bowden cable with another rubber boot where it exits the pressure hull.

    Evening Dodgy,
    Apart from the 'censorship' you mention.
    I wonder how many of such actions goes back to the international fight against terrorism as well as child porn networks. Not simply censorship but surveillance to track the perpetrators. If so I have no problem with that at all, although I agree that the domain providers might apologise after the event if they, or their 'advisers', got it wrong.
    In such cases they would of course NOT be inclined to give advance warning of an investigation!

    BTW; A word to the wise! I note that you have been a site member since 2009 (congrats. 5 years before me), and your valuable contributions have increased, almost exponentially, since 2017. Retired then perhaps, like me? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You obviously have much to say and a broad range of knowledge and experience to draw on๐Ÿ‘ Welcome to the club.
    I find it though a little disappointing and surprising that you are making more and more use of our platform without contributing to it's upkeep!
    A fiver now and again won't hurt will it?
    'On paper' (๐Ÿคฃ) we have over 5000 members, most are inactive or look around once in a while, maybe extract some useful info, but never post or contribute.
    The majority of the posts, blogs and info, as well as the cost of maintaining the site (also 'your' platform in that sense) are covered by a mere handful of us.
    The site costs are not exorbitant but need to be paid.
    Stephen, and his assistants, work for free but domain host etc must be paid for.
    Looking forward to seeing the Contributors Medal of Honour on your avatar.๐Ÿ‘
    Your decision. All contributions are voluntary and the site is free!

    Pics show U25 internals as is now. Site mixed up the pics๐Ÿ˜ Grrrrrrrrrrrrr
    Pic 1 is midships servo, battery & ESC compartment, Pic 2 is stern compartment (Engine room) with a w/t bulkhead with RFI filter board attached,Pic 3 is bow compartment with RX and w/t bulkhead leading to servo / battery compartment.
    Will be intrigued to see if I can squish Martin's dive system in here!

    Get the drift so far Martin๐Ÿ‘
    I suppose WTC is Water Tight Compartment? Dimensions?
    Look forward to further instalments.
    Especially regarding the innards. Will you fit a dive tank?
    If so could be a useful upgrade for my U25.
    cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
