Hermione Lady Colwyn by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 9 months ago
Hi I am in the proses of building this in a 1/12 scale. I live near to the life boat station in Shoreham and see it launched many times Could I ask where you got the decals from and more so the name of her RNLB Hermione Lady Colwyn. As I will need this for mine Kev

Hi I'm not sure who is going up from the Swiss Cottage MBC at Shoreham. BOb has mentioned it and sure he will be attending with some others. Unfortunately I'm working 😡

Love this site It's helped me out and saved me a packet when it comes to electrics (ESC) and brushless motors 👍

RNLI Tyne Class by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Got any photos, would love to see it

RNLI Tyne Class by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Tyne-class lifeboat Shoreham-by-Sea: In 1990 Shoreham life boat station was supplied with a new Tyne-class lifeboat. She was the RNLB Hermione Lady Colwyn (ON 1158). The Hermione Lady Colwyn was on station from 1990 until 2010 and during that period she was launched to service 414 times and she rescued 458 people. 72 of these were classed as medical emergency but she is credited with saving the lives of 39 people. After the withdrawal of Hermione Lady Colwyn in April 2010, the station was served by various relief fleet Tynes until the new Tamar-class entered service in December 2016

The history of the Tyne Class at shoreham

RNLI Tyne Class by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Morning All I’m just about to start building a 1/12 Tyne class model that the wife got me for a birthday. The hull is from models by design but is now owned by mount fleet models I wanted to go brushless motors this time around and have never used them before. Already had some help on that subject from you guys around the ESC and wire cutting. I’m going to build this model on the tyne that was base at shoreham before it got the Tamar class. Will keep you all posted on the progress

Evening This is a photo of a right M4 prop. Which does it need to spin for forward propulsion

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Donation all done. And thank you all for your help. So glad I found this site 👍

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Now that was easy. Can’t believe it Thanks Doug 🙂

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Can you help with this Dave on the ESC I have three wire to context to the motor Red Blue and Black. On the motor the wires are Orange Yellow and Blue. What goes where

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Thanks Dave yes that’s what I was thinking. How much is this going to cost me if I get this wrong. New motors new ESC. Thanks for your help. Being as you have saved me, the cost is time and yours and others so I’m going to make a donation to the web site for up keep. That the lest I can do.

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Thanks Dave I'm very new to this brushless world and not quite sure what a ESC or BEC is yet. Is one of them a speed controller. I think I'm being a bit thick here and do not want to cut or remove the wrong red wire. As there a few. May have to send you guys a photo

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Thanks Elsrckle What could go wrong now. Fitting the ESC over the weekend just to confirm it only the one red wire you cut in your diagram. 😳

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Help needed on this one 😳

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Hi and thanks. This sounds all very complicated. I've never used brushless mortors before. Or brushless ESC. Disconnect red lead ? Anyone got a diagram out there they could send me 😳

Brushless motors by Spitfire99 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Hi I'm going to use brushless motors for the first time. I have a brushless ESC. Can I run two motors off of one ESC like brushed motors or will I need two brushless ESC's 🤔
