GAVINATOR service tug boat for oil rigs by tugboatguy Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 years ago
the boat Is actually the fairmount alpine a dutch super tug. This Is my first scratch build from a pdf file I found online. I had a survey supply shop blow It up 300% for me and made templates from the plans and hit the saws and started to cut and glue. Now some people I know asked why a tug boat well most of my uncles are west coast fishermen and one Is a tug boat captain. Me I operate heavey equipment and drive truck. I like the smell of deasil and that feeling of raw power. Most of my rc work has been with fast cars like the tc6 or the b4.1 truggy, my favoright Is my venom rock crawler with 4 wheel steer and locking and unlocking diffs and full lighting system. I have been helping out a friend of mine who owns an rc shop mostly helping with tec nights where new Into rc people can come and ask? and get help fixing any problems they might have. So back to the boat It has twin torpedo 500 motors and a robbe bow thruster and a 10 led light system from rc lights. I want to Install a working fire monitor and working anckour winches. And one day a sound card.

Lots of great Info here. I could use some help to figure out my radio system. my boat Is twin engine twin rudder with action mixer and a bow thruster and my radio Is a spectrum dx6I with dsmx mode2. Any thoughts on how to wire It so I have forward and reverse throttle and left right bowthruster control and rudder control?.

Katra by tugboatguy Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 years ago
very nice work I hope my tug comes out as great as yours. What type of radio system are you useing?.

Oceanic Tug by tugboatguy Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 years ago
HI tugboatguy here Im wondering If you know how to wire a dx6I radio and reacever so I have forward and reverse on the throttle my radio Is a mode2. So Im thinking I would use my rudder stick for forward and reverse and maybe the elevator stick for left and right control then the stick for alieron control for left right bow thruster control. Thankyou for any advice you could give me.
