    (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 2018 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: Quicrun 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 Floyd,
    You've received several replies giving useful advice in bits and pieces, some without providing the 'Why'!
    So let me try to pull this altogether!๐Ÿ˜‰
    First:
    The Elke is a Fish Cutter, very similar to my Billing Boats Danish North Sea fish cutter Gina 2.
    They were 'plodders', max 10 knots at an educated guess. So you won't need a mighty meaty motor or lots of volts to drive it.
    The original Graupner instructions recommend a 280 type brushed motor.
    More than adequate for scale speed for a fish cutter. I'm assuming that the prop is approx 30mm diameter like my Gina 2 cutter. Which incidentally I propose to propel with a 50s vintage Taycol Target motor.
    BUT: You say that you have already purchased a Quicrun ESC.
    So your choice of motor is now defined by the type of that ESC.
    As Rowen says the Quicrun range includes both brushed and brushless types.
    Due to differences in the control technology of brushed and brushless motors you can not mix the types. I.E. brushed motor with brushless ESC or vice versa!
    A brushed motor is simply DC driven. Connect a battery and it runs. ๐Ÿ˜€
    A brushless motor is in essence a type of 3-phase AC motor and requires a corresponding electronic speed controller (ESC) to run it.
    So which Quicrun ESC have you bought?

    Battery:
    Can appreciate your trepidation re LiPos as a newcomer to the technology.
    Like Rowen I have had no problems with them for 4 years now.
    But I have nearly 50 years of electronics engineering behind me so perhaps my perspective differs a bit from that of a novice!๐Ÿ˜‰
    By all means stick to NiMh if you are happier with that - model boating should be fun not worrying! But remember; ANY battery type can bite you if you maltreat it.
    Even a so called 'Sealed' Lead Acid produces hydrogen gas when charging and vents it if the internal pressure gets too high through charging too long at high current!! So put yer fags out!๐Ÿ˜‰ And buy a decent charger capable of charging AND monitoring NiMh. LiPo and SLA batteries. Cheaper than buying chargers for all three types ๐Ÿ˜€
    BTW: A motor (brushed or brushless) does not care what type of battery you use ๐Ÿ˜Š
    All it wants is enough current at the right volts, so that can come from an NiMh, a LiPo, an SLA lead accumulator, or even silver oxide cells if you've just won the lottery ๐Ÿ˜
    So motor and battery can not be incompatible.๐Ÿ˜‰ But motor and speed controller (ESC) CAN be!!๐Ÿค”

    Motor and ESC:
    As said, motor choice will depend on the type of Quicrun ESC you have bought!
    I hope that it was one of the brushed motor types; e.g. 1060.
    A fish cutter does not need a powerful high revving or high torque brushless motor for reasons stated above.
    If you have bought one of the Quicrun xxBLyy types of brushless ESC I suggest you save that for a later project, perhaps a fast MTB or PTB, or sell it and purchase a simple brushed ESC, e.g.Mtroniks Viper Marine 10. Or the Quicrun 1060.

    RC kit: Transmitter & Receiver set (TX/RX).
    I see that you have a 6 channel FlySky set ๐Ÿ‘
    Don't know it personally but it has similarities with my Turnigy set and several MB site members use variants of FlySky kit so you should be OK for set up / operating help if needed.
    6 channels gives you scope for special functions like lighting etc etc.
    But that's further down the line ๐Ÿ˜‰ We can help with that when you get that far ๐Ÿ‘

    Hope this helps clarify things a little.
    BTW: A few pics, or even make and type numbers, of what kit and equipment you have are always helpful to us when we are asked for advice re 'The Way Forward'.
    The only daft question is the one that you are afraid to ask!๐Ÿ˜‰
    This site is full of bin there done that, 'this works fine' or 'tried this, won't do it again because ...' members and hundreds of years of experience! Use it ๐Ÿ‘

    Re Batteries Floyd,
    Preeeee-ciseley Rowen๐Ÿ‘, same with me, also 4 years or so.
    Follow the rules and LiPos are no problem.
    I also never charge at more than 1Amp.
    The manufacturers only claim that they can be quick charged at 10 or 20Amps or whatever so that you do that, ruin the battery - reduce it's capacity and have to buy new ones.
    Good for business๐Ÿ™„ But not for us!๐Ÿ˜ 
    I never charge NIMhs at more than 1A either.
    When cycling (discharge/charge) to rejuvenate batteries, either NiMh or LiPo, I discharge at 5A and charge at 1A.

    "I can't even go to the kitchen and make a cup of tea."
    Hmmm!!
    Now THAT is a serious disastricle Nerys!
    How about we pool our brainy resources on this site and design you either-
    1) An RC kettle and teapot,
    or
    2) An E-Walker or E-chair, as you prefer.
    I'm sure that there are enough professional resources, from eng. drawing, machining, mechanical, electrical and software engineering trades and skills on this site to realise such a project.

    Personally I favour an RC, or autonomous, Tea / Coffee Maker Robot, which (who?) is also capable of delivering said Tea / Coffee to Nerys at her modelling bench.
    A Rich Tea and/or Digestive biscuit dispenser (automatic with tea or coffee respectively) should of course also be incorporated. Tea or coffee is just too wet without them!๐Ÿ˜‹
    In these days of autonomous cars (๐Ÿ™„) and selfie taking Mars Rovers with semi-autonomous drones something like this must be possible.
    All the bits we need are kicking around on the WWW already; RC Robots etc.
    ALL WE need to do is come up with a design to suit Nery's needs.
    To kick things off I can contribute an alarm clock controlled tea/coffee maker with integrated two slice toaster and egg boiler! Yes really, 'onest injun! An 'instant breakfast' machine ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜Ž Mix that with an Arduino and stir in Graham93 for a few days and we might be getting somewhere ๐Ÿ˜€

    GADIES AND LENTLEMEN!
    This call to arms will shortly appear as a new Forum Thread.
    Wherein members will be requested to contribute their design suggestions and/or identify sources of potentially useful parts and gadgets.
    So rally round chaps and chapesses ๐Ÿ˜€ Put your thinking caps on ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ’ก
    I look forward to a lively response leading to a practical design initiative.๐Ÿ˜€
    Whereupon we can build teams to realise the production dwgs, parts construction, motorisation, electricals, software and assembly & integration.
    With best wishes to all our innovative and creative thinkers and doers.

    "but as it dries it will try to shrink."
    And because it was cold, 8-10ยฐ, it would dry much slower allowing the solvents more time to work on the previous paint.
    Ideal spraying temperature is minimum 20ยฐC, ensuring that the solvents evaporate quickly.
    Even if the paint had dried smooth the gloss would have probably fogged, so called 'blooming', at that low temperature.
    Peter: the main 'secret' ingredient for successful spraying is PATIENCE!!
