    These were cut to size from Vinyl using a Cricut Machine which we already had at home. Very useful for various craft needs. Ron

    Hi Peter. Hopefully I have attached 3 photos taken indoors for you to see. When next out on the water, I will get a few more. Ron

    Hi Peter. Remember me from about 9 months ago. After a bit of time away from Modelling, I have just recently finished the Pilot Boat, it has had its first test sail and went well. The weather now is a bit blowy and, as was mentioned, the Pilot Boat initially needs a reasonable wind-free day. I live on the edge of North Sea and can be quite blustery. Hopefully I will be able to get its second sail and sort out any problems. It was a tricky build for my first go at Plastic Modelling. The electrics look good after quite a bit of time sorting out the wiring. Roll on a calm day for its next Sail. Regards. Ron

    Hi Peter,
    Thanks for idea for making easier access to Rudder Connections. I have modified mine to similar to yours and all seems well so far. I have not continued with "above" Deck Building but that will be next on the plan. How "Electrical Minded" are you regarding LED wiring etc.? I am looking for a good Website, both for getting advice on Wiring along with suitable supplies for UK source. Any ideas? Thanks again. Ron

    Hi Peter. I have competed the hull and tested motors which are running OK. Whilst setting up the Servo etc for the Rudder Control, I found the fittings very fiddly to connect (and that is without the Deck fitted). Moving on, I am considering what can/should be done to enable slight adjustments to the Rudders etc. when the Deck is fixed. All very tight to get into that area. Has anyone had this problem and found an answer? Thanks. Ron

    Hi Peter. I have spoken to Cornwall Model Boats and they advised me that to run 2 engines from one ESC, you should set up and get one engine running, then separately the second one and then join them together by means of a Y Connector. I have done this and now have both engines running together. I don't need them to run individually. Steering will be done by Rudders. Best Wishes. RonπŸ‘πŸ˜

    Steve. Since my last message, I have made progress, purchased a kit from Cornwall Models. Started building hull just before Xmas and as you mentioned, you need to have patience to get it right. Before going to far, I am planning how to set up the Motors and the Speed controller. I have got a Viper Marine 25 ESC and 2 Motors (380's). Looking back at some photos of yours, it looks as you have 2 Speed Controllers. I am having problems in getting the ESC to talk to the 2 Motors. Do I need to have a second ESC to operate the 2 Motors? How would this be set up through my Hobbyking Controller? Would appreciate some clarity of my thinking. Best Wishes. RonπŸ‘πŸ˜
