First job today was to reduce the rudder
s by 1cmx1cm which I think not only looks better but should reduce the affects that have been mentioned in comments below.
Ive fitted the cockpit
which I assembled yesterday. its not the best fit into the deck, however, I shall blend it all in with some balsa strip, sand, filler
, sanding sealer
hopefully for a seamless finish.
I have pictured the 2 x Hobbyking waterproof
boat 30 amp esc. These are supposed to be water cooled
, however I am not going to fit the tubing and start drill
ing water pickup and exit holes in the hull x 4 until I think that water cooling
is going to be necessary. Once I have watt meter readings for 2S and 3S lipo, it will give me an idea what the ESC are going to be like. Of course if you guys think I need to go water cooling
, please let me know! I have an Mtroniks W-tail mixer
that will allow the motor
s to be synched to the rudder
s allowing the inboard motor
to slow or stop when turning. Never used one before, so may need to some programming
once hooked up, we shall see.
Last job today was to shoot a could of coats
of red oxide primer
on the lower hull to see what the resin
finish was like. on the whole not a bad finish at all, just a could of tiny areas that need a little sanding
for a faily blemish free finish.
