Slowly does it. by sonar Admiral   Posted: 1 day ago
lower the motor mounting as close as you can to the bottom of the hull making sure the propellor does not touch the underside of the external hull if this makes sense

Slowly does it. by sonar Admiral   Posted: 1 day ago
Or as close as possible depending on the shape of the hull

Slowly does it. by sonar Admiral   Posted: 1 day ago

12 volt motors to esc,s by sonar Admiral   Posted: 5 days ago
simple now 2 x motors 2 x esc,s 2 x 12 volt batteries. Sorted....

12 volt motors to esc,s by sonar Admiral   Posted: 5 days ago
The esc stuff is all working now. So i have just hooked up a LM2577 Voltage Booster input 3.5 - 30V, output up to 30V adjustable The idea is to have 24 volts battery input and the output stays at 12 volts. Having just said that it has come from action electronics and does not work .....Again. So I will have to stick with 12 volts .... so far as electronize esc,s go there heavy duty and also used so I have been told on the robots used in robot wars..

12 volt motors to esc,s by sonar Admiral   Posted: 5 days ago

12 volt motors to esc,s by sonar Admiral   Posted: 5 days ago
O.K Seems I still have something missing the rx is a 6 channel but now only the servo and the throttle goes into it am I missing something else ?

12 volt motors to esc,s by sonar Admiral   Posted: 5 days ago
leave one of them SWITCHED OFF! does that mean one esc join the orange and red bec wires and leave the other esc with wires not joined

12 volt motors to esc,s by sonar Admiral   Posted: 5 days ago
I have now just arrived two FR15 Series Microprocessor Speed Controllers. with BEC ? So I had in the past had a mixer and distribution board . But now decided just to omit the bow thruster and only wire in TWO motors.. @ 12 volts each.. So with 2 x 12 volt motors 1 x 12 volt lead sealed battery. 2 x esc,s 1 x reciver And a single rudder servo. and two y joiners for the servo. and the paperwork that came with the esc,s Being totally thick is there a drawing somewhere I can download So as to wire this in ? Also each esc has wires for a bec ? No idea where they go

Hydrofoil by sonar Admiral   Posted: 6 days ago
The only other that may suit that sort of hull is a Russian Hydrofoil Fast Antisubmarine Ship

Hydrofoil by sonar Admiral   Posted: 6 days ago
I have just had a set of plans printed for a hydrofoil. But for speed and lightness I was going to use plastic.

Some sort of tugboat /cargo thingy by sonar Admiral   Posted: 9 days ago
Well I have yet another old hull in the shed I have decided I will have to do something with. So Thinking maybe some sort of cargo ship. Or what ever it finally turns out to be... This time with all the superstructure at the stern.. The hull is an English type So could get away with the hull of a cargo ship anyway. So started the superstructure again using free plastic . and this is as Far as I have got to date.
