Hms Rodney/ Nelson by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 26 days ago
There’s one for sale on a face book group I’m on called rc boats for sale, go have a look it’s superb detail, trumpeter kit 1/200 ready built. Going for around £290 I think

Newcomers? :) by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Just checking that people are going tomorrow (Saturday 24th March) because here is no events on. How many are expected? Thanks! I was hoping to come with a friend and a couple boats :)

Fleet thinning time by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Hey bill, sorry this post got lost in my threads! Is it still available?

Fleet thinning time by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Hey bilzin, I really like that life boat you have there! Could you possibly post a couple of pictures of the inside if it’s not too much trouble? Many thanks!

Newcomers? :) by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Thank you!

Newcomers? :) by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Hey, just wondering what the deal is with newcomers to this mbc? I have an aeronaut Pilot and would love to try it out with some other boats in a more scale environment! Thanks Skipper44

London Model Engineering Exhibition by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
hey, where abouts does your model boat club operate? many thanks t

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
https://youtu.be/KRT8-mfjY6E Just uploaded another running video! :) not too exciting but gives away the stage of completion XD, a few more videos coming soon, and hopefully the build part 3 in around a month when I've compiled all the footage! t

Aeronaut Pilot LKBM 04 by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
[Score: 9/10] 30"/4000g Aeronaut Pilot LKBM 04 Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 50mins Twin Propellors (4 Blade 30mm) Direct Drive to a Graupner 600 speed (4 Blade) Powered by NiMH (8.4v) 5Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through MTroniks (40Amps) ESC - Comments: Took me 7 months to build. Has twin esc so I can control each prop individually, twin rudders, a sound system, horn, working anchor windlass, 4 individually controlled lighting setups (cab / dashboard lighting, navigation, pilot and search lights), spinning radar etc. She gets up well on a plane, probably a bit over powered!

Cromarty by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Wow! What an amazing buy! Good luck :)

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Current state of completion

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
In side the cab, just finished the roof and primered the whole thing

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Current stage, I will be making a video on how I have done the boat thus far for the superstructure, and the cab which is currently being built!

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
Sorry for not posting in a while, have had a pretty busy start to A levels, all is ago again however!

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Just put out a little running video, back home now so tile to crack on! https://youtu.be/I8GRxAjnMT4 Enjoy :) T

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Thanks guys! And yes AllenA I was surprised too! Funnily enough when both props were working there wasn’t too much difference in top speed, probably around 2 or 3 mph however the acceleration was much faster with two as was the stability! (And yes my minor spelling typo!😂 missed that one!) and thanks John, I’m really looking forward to putting the deck on! The rubbing strake and some fenders have just arrived so time to make some progress, however I’m am going away tomorrow on an army cadet camp (don’t worry I’m in the Navy section!! 😂) so will not be able to do anything for a week. Anyway I’ll try and make some more progress and look forward to reporting back again! Hopefully some running in the next video! Yours T

daft question by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Ik not completely sure my self but I think you’re on the right track! I’m pretty sure it roughly means the petrol racing boats that whine and go really fast so disturb all the others and are dangerous!

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Here we are! I have just finished Part 2, it’s more narrative as a time lapse of the electrics would have been rather dull! I used a text to speech converter for the voice as no one likes the sound of their own voice! 😂 hope it’s informative/interesting. https://youtu.be/Zdjn0Zf1DfI Yours T

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Thank you all for such a positive response! I look forward to uploading part two! :)

Aeronaut Pilot by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Thanks AllenA! What can I say their music is great, and yes I don't know many others my age who listen to them... guess Im just another brick in the wall 😉

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
Thank you very much! I think I will call aeronaut as the rubbing strake is included in every picture and my mother is a lawyer who advised me to just ask for them to send me one on the grounds of misrepresentation, (I know it says optional in the instructions but you only get the instructions after you buy the boat!) Fingers crossed. Thanks T

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago
sorry to post again just checked the instructions and it says that the rubbing strake is optional but not included!? i find this very annoying as the kit is hardly cheap and is missing quite a lot like the grease/silicone tubing for the rudder waterseal. I was wondering how to make/ where to get a rubbing strake? thanks t

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 11 months ago

Flickering LED by Skipper44 Lieutenant   Posted: 12 months ago
Hi, I have an LED which when I plug in just flickers randomly even with no flicker unit, I have tested the same equipment with other LEDs and they are all fine. This is very annoying as it is a search light! Does anyone know what he problem is / how to fix it?
