Some great ideas and many options! what I thought was "no hope" to "every hope" of resolving the problem. Need to start to make some decisions and looking forward to Dave's forthcoming thread with more details.👍
Thanks Mark, the wire would be a solution if the scanner was on the mast centreline but it is off-set half way up and on a shelf so that it can rotate. The 6mm motors suggested by Trillium appear to be a possible solution fitted underneath the shelf.
Thanks Dave, you've set me off on another adventure into the unknown but I think I'm learning....do I need the Arduino UNO controller and could I control two motors off it (it doesn't matter if the speed is the same ) . If I don't need the controller ,could you explain a bit more about using the POT (presumably a potentiometer?)
Thanks Doug,the boat is the Ayton Cross Tug which has the scanner supported from a shelf projected from the main mast.the scale is 1:32. I'm thinking it's an impossible task but just maybe there's a nano motor somewhere waiting for the task!
👍 very good turnout and well organised. Excellent pier and lighthouses which added character to the lake. definitely attend again next year! I hope the boat that didn't get rescued by the lifeboat survived the ordeal!
HI Dave, It Is a 2 part epoxy substance which creates a crystal clear solid Illusion of deep water manufactured by Deluxematerials.com.Takes a long time to set but Is very effective. I thought It would look good for windows but It appears to be more trouble than Its worth. It also dissolves Plastic magic glue so beware!
Hi, has anyone had any experience of using this material?. what Is the best way of sealing the Inner surface, does It have to be permanent or Is there a material that can be pealed away after the "water" has set that does not leave marks etc. the size of my windows are approx. 8mm sq In plastic card.
