Aerokits Fairey Swordsman - Posted: 6 years ago by john saunders
mdlbt.com/4652   >> Permalink
First trials of freshly restored 1970s Aerokits Swordsman rescued as a wreck from ebay (I was the only bidder It looked so bad....!) earlier this year. Was diesel powered and had loads of lead ballest glassed Into hull which had to be cut out and replaced with new ply with the rest of the structure lightened and stiffended with new ply. Now fitted with Turnigy 600 Typhoon Brushless and 90A Seawing ESC and 55 min Graupner prop. Handling Is excellent and turns really well using a small size Graupner rudder with fast acting large angle Hobbywing servo. Joined my collection of 34 and 46 Fireboats, Sea Hornet, Sea Queen and Commander, all restored over the past 3 years. Aerokits have come Into their own with clean and quiet brushless power we could not dream of In the 1960s

Yeoman Minx and Wavemaster restored by Kalamunda, filmed at Crealy near Exeter. These boats were originall produced by HMM and were, I think, designed by Les Rowell In the fifties.
The boats were found on ebay and brought back to life.
Response by figtree7nts on the 1 year ago
A pleasure to watch video, and clearly two very nice antique boats! 👍

New motor & battery test at Crealy - Posted: 7 years ago by chrislang

34" Fireboat
I tried out my new motor arrangement, ( Graupner speed 600 8.4v motor with a single 9.6v battery pack as recommended by dbninja ) In my Fireboat today. A bit choppy but all went very well at just above half throttle then I began to get braver and added on the power to be met by clouds of smoke and a truly blown ESC. ( See FORUM under Hong Kong ESC ) The new Fire Monitors by Peter HS93 also worked fine using a Vauxhall Astra washer pump, I'd hope to get pics but the sudden halt Intervened!

Regards Chris
Response by RogerS on the 5 years ago
HI Chris - great looking boat. Can you tell me where you got the monitors please - see my first message on the site.
Many thanks.
Roger S.
Response by chrislang on the 5 years ago
HI Roger
My monitors were kindly produced some time ago by another member of this site who was unfortunately at the last request unable to make any more. You might like to have a go making suitably scaled down versions In the method shown by Pete Harvey on his 46" Fireboat restoration on his website ( link In the 'Useful Links' part of this site ) my Initial effort was to try drilling out some white metal fittings- this only proved the soft cheese Is probably a more suitable material!
Water Is pumped to the monitors using an ebay sourced Astra windscreen washer pump which works fine on my 9.6v setup.
Good luck
Chris
Response by chrislang on the 5 years ago
HI again
Just to mention that Monitors for the 34" boat are available separately from the 'Online Shop'section of this site. ( Don't think they are working however )
