Billings Sea King refit by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 days ago
Unfortunately the stanchions suffered when the boat was "drowned" in Waste water in the flood and several have broken so will have to replace.

Thanks guys.😊

Don't have many model shops in my neck of the woods, where would be the best for mail order in uk? Saw reports on Westbourne.

Full Size Plans - NAXOS by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 18 days ago
Quite a common method of support, it steadies the bottom end.

BRAVE / PERKASA MTB by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 29 days ago
From memory the centre prop was used in harbour or for station keeping at sea. when required the "wing" engines were started. I remember many years ago watching one leave Yarmouth harbour on the isle of Wight and the sound was incredible.

You must either not like building or you have a looong list😎

Billings Sea King refit by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
I have replaced the original nylon props with two brass of slightly larger dia and pitch. Using both sticks on throttle it should be very manouverable

I should have said that the two speed 600 motors are new.

Billings Sea King refit by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
This Sea King was bought me as an anniversary prezzy over 40 years ago and was run up to about 11 years ago when it was stored away in the cellar. Unfortunately we had a flood and as the boat was wrapped in a binbag it could not float out and all systems were wrecked. I now intend to re-fit. As you can see she needs new rails and external fittings.

JOINING BATTERY & RECEIVER CABLE by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Very likely to give you migraine. visit your local model shop or look online for the correct switch harness to match your radio gear, that way the plugs will match.

On/Off button or Kill Switch by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Really the only problem is your confidence, just make sure the polarity is correct. I can't see on your pics what make your radio set is, you should be able to get a match from your model shop.

On/Off button or Kill Switch by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
As your receiver says"4 channel" they are for extra servos. Any switch can be used as long as the plugs match.

Crash Tender Shaft Tube Poistion by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
To neilmc, tried to reply to your PM but got it bounced back.

Crash Tender Shaft Tube Poistion by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
To neilmc, it's a long time since i saw the old Alliance. I was involved in the restoration of the main electrical switchboard when she was still in the water.

Precedent 1/32 scale Perkasa Kit. by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Robbob, i know your tag line. You wouldn't have been involved with a certain diy forum would you?

NickW's boat's by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Your speedboat is an "Intercepter 650" and came in two versions, Ready to run with installed radio gear or as a bare bones and fit your own running gear and radio. I have the ready to run and has a decent turn of speed.

Dust extraction by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Most of aircraft guys like the "HENRY" as a dust remover, should shift vapours as well.

Programmable Tx by Wingcoax Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
As stated, the results are saved in the TX. From experience with R/C aircraft you would get positive results by disconnecting motors and switching on both units(unless you need various throttle settings)in which case make sure the props are clear of anything. That way you can see the results before saving.
