Smoker / Light Contoller by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
Thanks Marky.

Smoker / Light Contoller by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
Afternoon All, Really please as finished off the smoker/light controller i've been working on. it works with any smoker that has a fan. theres three version avaible, but all versions have the same light functions, one switch - on /off (can change to a proportional to work with a water pump) Three position Swich, controlls two light circuts or anything. Oil heater, will turn the fan and heater on only when required. saves on Battery and to replicate a diessel engine. Water vapor system, able to turn off/on the power to the system remotely, Diesel engine, will power the fan 100% and the start and the slow the fan down till model is just about to move off. Steam Engine - Fan at idle is about 20% so always push the smoke up but then it will encrease with throttle input. the best thing i think is that any thing can be changed via the arduino. Will be make a few so if any one interest in one, please PM me. this is one i've just made for a friend that use the Oil heater https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDLp5bACejc&feature=youtu.be and mine using the water vapor systemhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pj2pICSLHcE Thanks

Mast & Spot light by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 5 years ago
With losing the Mast and other things (not sure how) I had to make a new one. hope It turned out well as only had photo on the Internet to go by. I thought this would be better that the single spot light you normally see on the boat and using SMD Leds will make night sailing A lot better.

Hull and Cabin Stripped by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 5 years ago

Dusseldorf Rebuild by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 5 years ago
I built my Robbe Dusseldorf over 18 year, but as a kid I rushed It 😟 , after the deck finally failed I decided to strip It back to begin and do It correctly.

dual speed controller advice by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 6 years ago
Sorry ment cheer not cyber. Autocorrect on my phone

dual speed controller advice by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 6 years ago
Cheer Dave. Yea I would agree with you with. But the remote Is the old f14 on 40megs, I've also tried two different TX a d rx encase that was the fault. Ive seen people having fault on 2.4 with this esc too which would make sense. Cyber tim

dual speed controller advice by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 6 years ago
Cheers Dave, I thought the same so I removed the mixer and wired directy Into the receiver. The radio Is Futaba f16 and matching receiver. I been looking at a lot of site on the net and there steels to a general fault with the esc(great more money wasted). I try cutting the power cable down and resoldier the joints. Tonight and see If that helps Tim Thanks again

dual speed controller advice by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 6 years ago
thanks for the advice, I've done would you advised but the the motor are now cutting In and out on full forward but reverse Is fine. If I plug In with a y lead the same and I have to program the tx to only travel 50% of forward throttle to stop this.think I cut my loses and buy another two jr 50amp esc as I know they will work

dual speed controller advice by timgarrod Lieutenant   Posted: 6 years ago
Evening all, I'm trying to wire up two viper marine 25 speed controllers, but the problem Is one motor has a 2 sec delay, I've removed the BEC from one speed controller (this one runs correctly) but the one with BEC has the 2 sec delay. I've ran the setup so many times now I losing the will. there running of 6 volts(test for testing) but will be ran of 12v soon. the motors are MFA with 2.5:1 gearboxes and running though a ASTEC mixer. thanks Tim
