    Looking good Chris, I have one that is in a sorry state and needs a lot of work on it, there is nothing in side and I have started striping it down for a total re-paint. Trouble is I have four other boats that I am working on and no room to work (stuck in a one bed flat)

    Well I have tried a combination of ESCs and motors and different batteries from 7.5 up and I am still getting the same problem. Could it be the receiver or transmitter lock. Pluss I am also getting motor surge,

    I am restoring my second RAF High speed launch and I am having a problem with the motor. At the moment it only has one motor and prop, I am using a Leopard Hobby LC3536-960kv brushless motor with a Marine30amp 6v water proof ESC and an E fly transmitter and receiver. During testing the motor cuts out after a couple of minuets then if I relies the throttle and re-apply, it runs again for a couple of seconds and the cuts out. I have tried the motor with a different ESC and it would not run at all. Any help greatly appreciated any ideas?

    I just found out that HSL128 originally had a red and white checked box on the bow across the deck, so some remedial work to be done. so it should look like this,

    Due to illness I have had to put my larger projects on hold (to much for me to move around at the moment because of the size) so I am working on returning this HSL to how she looked (in real life) when she first came into service. I got her in the grey, she needed a bit of TLC electrically and mechanically and of course repainting but almost there.
