    (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,
    "I am slowly being swayed towards a gas system where the water is pumped in and whilst being pumped out, the gas bottle replaces the air. This will enable a deeper dive than periscope depth. You just have to avoid running out of air."

    Hmm! Must admit I also once considered experimenting with something like Sparklets bulbs.
    But they are very difficult to control. How often have you sent the soda down one side of the glass only to see the whisky shoot out of the other side?๐Ÿ˜ญ
    Also they run out! Not to mention all that CO2 release to the atmosphere - Bad Footprint๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    I concluded it was best to leave that to less critical things like experiments with torpedoes.
    A 'gas tank' per se would be very heavy.
    One of several reasons that I opted for the Akula with a piston / tank solution.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi peter,
    Attached a pdf of the allowed frequencies here.
    You'll notice that the UHF 433MHz frequencies mentioned somewhere amongst this sub stuff haven't been available for RC here since 2008!
    Lower French frequencies? Puzzles me.
    Attached is also the UK and European 40Meg chart and channel numbers.
    Both bands start at 40.665 !?
    Possibly some rogue channels in France.
    The French ALWAYS do their own thing๐Ÿ˜‰
    Surprises me that you can run a 35Meg set on a 40Meg crystal!
    Wouldn't have thought that the rest of the circuit would resonate properly.
    (Psst! Don't tell anyone but when I first came here all I had was a 35Meg Sanwa set.
    I used it for my destroyer cos I didn't 'ave nowt else, until I could afford to buy my first Graupner MC-10 'computer' set.) Quantum leap๐Ÿ˜‰

    "why would you risk losing sight of it."
    That's the whole thrill of it Martin.
    "Obviously the deeper you go the higher the pressure, the air inside the compartment will expand."
    Er .. No! Due to the cooling effect of the water it will actually contract, thus reducing the internal pressure. Venting air from the dive tank to the internal tube counteracts this effect.
    Trick is not to overdo it and blow the seals.
    Some systems use two smaller tanks and vent to forward and aft sections separately. Too complex for me๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    I'm off to the cellar to dig out my Akula kit and read up on how that should work.

    Hi Pete,
    "which would react if signal was lost or can be triggered manually. "
    Hmm!? How would you know WHEN to trigger it manually?
    May already be too late!

    "safety blow valve" what does it 'blow' and where from?
    If you use the piston tank method and Fail Safe module it should automatically vent the tank on signal loss or excessive depth. S'pose the same could be applied to a bladder and pump system. Read the book carefully, I'm sure you'll find the inspiration you need in there๐Ÿ‘

    BTW: have you ever watched a submarine race!?
    'bout as exciting as watching grass grow ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

    Funny coincidence!
    There is a documentary on the haunted fishtank (GEO channel) at the moment about the Apollo programme. 50th anniversary of the first landing coming up at the weekend!
    And right now they are showing the background of the 'cardboard, sticky tape and old sock' incident!! They just showed the 'prototype' and one that the crew made๐Ÿ˜€
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    PS "I will be running the sub in a bit of a murky river ..."
    Recommend then that you fit a brushless motor with some Ooomph in case you get caught by a current! I'd be scared stiff to dive a sub in a river ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Hi Ian,
    The Nรผrnberg Toy Fair is vast and is for everything from baby toys through games to sophisticated model building, robotics you name it!

    There are days for the pros, manufacturers and distributors, and days for the prols like us
    to go and empty their pockets and wallets. ๐Ÿ˜ So check the programme carefully before you book your tickets! For me it's about a two hour trundle up the A9 Autobahn๐Ÿ˜Š

    For more pure model building you might like to look at Dรผsseldorf and Friedrichshafen where large model exhibitions like Intermodellbau are held. With demonstrations of all sorts of models, slow-fly hangars, field for the big stuff and hellis and drones, very large pools for boat demos. These venues are attended by all sorts of manufacturers from complete kits to all the little bits n pieces makers.
    I'll try and dig up the dates and links - my new Modell Werft magazine arrived today, there is usually a listing in there of all upcoming exhibitions as well as Show Meetings of several major model Boat Clubs. Many of which attract international exhibitors and competitors. Especially the Dutch and Belgian participants who turn up with huge harbour layouts and dioramas!
    More soon.
    BTW the Nรผrnberg show has been and gornโ˜น๏ธ it's in March I think.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Fred,
    2.4 on the surface is fine of course.
    433Megs also, slightly better than 2.4G but still severely restricted under water.

    "as the old 40Mhz has more or less gone for good"
    Almost but not quite๐Ÿ˜Š
    There are still some model sub specialists who still do 40Meg stuff, and some of it tailored to 'Pig Boat' driving๐Ÿ‘ This is the one I use most.
    https://engel-modellbau.eu/shop/en/home/
    As you can see on the Home page even xtal-less 40Meg RXs are no problem.
    Lots of Futaba stuff still available as well.

    My destroyer was free running in those days, had to run round the lake to catch it!
    Rudder was set by turning the depthcharge rack on the stern.
    If she got stuck, or ran out off puff from the 4.5V flat battery, Mum would hold onto a reel of Grandad's light fishing line and I would walk the end round the lake (er .. pardon me Madame๐Ÿ˜) until I could snag her. (The ship not the Madame๐Ÿ˜ฎ)
