PT 301 (Snuffy Smith) - Posted: 2 years ago by Gabby

Lovely afternoon at Fleetwood with no other boats in sight. Went for a first sail with Deans HMS Cossack, but a little unstable , so let snuffy loose. She needs an engine change from a 650 and a new paint job. So maybe next year. 😎 😎 😎

Very nice , heck of a Wake! 👍
Response by jarvo on the 1 year ago
I think the sound is a bearing probably the motor, could be the shaft, definitely no need to increase power, sails very well

Motor has been left insitu, Prop shaft found to be vibrating and has now been fixed. Hull stripped back to bare wood and repainted in camoflage. Spray rails fixed to the hull have made a big difference to stability. Not on the original Aerokits drawings. Can now concentrate on Deans Cossack. Plenty of sheet lead for stability but looks good.

Finally managed to put a little film together of my 1.24 Grey Goose taken at the Herne bay regatta. As well as the usual turning guns, lights and ship sounds this boat fires working torpedo's using a CO2 gas system. Will be putting some film of this on youtube shortly.
If your interested I'll be exhibiting at the Southern Model show this weekend and will demonstrate the torpedo system at the show. Hope to see you there.
Response by Peter501 on the 2 years ago
Very nice model Hooper, must admit would have liked to see the torpedos fire on the video as unable to make the show ( to far for me) I have a 49" Perkasa MTB and would love to have firing torpedos.
Take care
Peter
Response by hooper on the 2 years ago
Peter,
Short film of my torpedos now on the website.

Lulonga , river quarterwheeler - Posted: 2 years ago by tomarack

Today Lulonga River steamer passed further navigation tests after replacing the ESC.(the new ESC are from HK...), working well,
The electronics work reliably, problems with stability again, but this time with a transverse stability. Since the superstructures that I built are quite heavy, and the model also has a flat bottom, so setting up a balanced position is very sensitive, and somehow I can not.
I try to stick around under the bottom of the line model, additional load.
Perhaps it will also help the exchange wheel

British Coast - Posted: 2 years ago by steve-fb40

First time in the water and under power. to get the correct trim (ect) I built a test tank from ply and lined it with polythene. To stat with There were two 12V lead acid batteries and the weight of the two motors, she just simply sat there, even the props were above water. After approx 30lbs more weight the correct water line was reached, the white line on the hull follows the sheer line of the main deck and isn't the true water line. So with the two batteries hooked up in parallel, the 12V Proboat Speed controller and the two Duma 12V motors as can be seen quite a good performance.

Great looking ship model!
Response by jarvo on the 1 year ago
Lovely looking model, sails well but I think you are going to need more ballast, prop is still partly out of the water.
Response by figtree7nts on the 1 year ago
Great observation Mark!

49 Inch Perkasa fixed after burnout - Posted: 2 years ago by lesfac

Following burning out the motor by fouling the prop on a polythene bread wrapper I fitted a new 160 amp speed controller and got a bargain motor from Giant Shark. It Is an Emax GT4020 which cost about £14. I realised what a bargain It was and went back only to find Giant Shark have ceased trading. The video shows the boat running on a 4 cell Lipo, It goes a bit quicker on a 5 cell that I have. I am really sold on Lipo power as Dave said I would be. I have just ordered a 3 cell Lipo for my crash tender
Response by Dave M on the 2 years ago
Really looks the part. Sad about Giant Shark.
Response by Northumbrian on the 2 years ago
it was giant cod before the VAT man caught him
Response by figtree7nts on the 1 year ago
