2Fast 2Furious second run - Posted: 6 years ago by aquamatic80

The second run was a little better, until one of the solder joints on the 3mm bullet connectors melted, so had to uprate them to 4mm

This was the Initial run, and I wasn't quite expecting the end result, you cannot hit the throttle this hard to start with. Oops1

Just thought I'd show you guys my boat with the "too fast" brushless setup. I have now put a smaller motor and turned It down on the controller. Almost lost It though 😁
Response by Dave M on the 6 years ago
Good to see you are progressing with the brushless. 👍 How Is your motor watercooled please 😀
Response by bigmacmodels on the 6 years ago
The motor I have has a built In water cooling jacket, works really well..... 😀
Response by rfineman on the 6 years ago
Tecnical details please.ie, Inrun, rpm, prop size & material battery type & voltage.

SemI Scratch build from a my hobby store plan and hull [only] kit. After 18 months Its still an ongoing build 🔨 , as my research In to the original vessel continues so I can get It as correct as possible. 😯
I have managed to get all the correct light patterns on and working, as well as twin radar and now finally have got the crane to operate remotely from the radio transmitter. 👍
Response by bigmacmodels on the 6 years ago
Was this at the Alfold show last weekend?
Response by Gregg on the 6 years ago
Sorry but No, This boat has not yet been on display anywhere as not yet completely finished, merely undergoing "sea trials" to check ballasting and seaworthyness If you get my meaning, as due to Its flat bows, It Is not the smoothest of vessels to steer, or If given too much throttle It heaves a lot of water over the bows.

Mersey 12-26 Lifeboat update 5/12 - Posted: 6 years ago by Gregg
mdlbt.com/6607   >> Permalink
FINALLY !

the Lifeboat Is looking more and more complete now, deck railings added, pushpit rails on, lifebelts on, deck painted etc. Still loads more to complete yet.
the ACTION sound system Is still pulling the crowds every time I switch It on, People passing the pool have to stop and watch It. Ive tried running the Mersey with the sound system off, but naa ! It has to be On , every time [ha ha].
Response by Gregg on the 6 years ago
HI Arthur, To be perfectly honest, the motor setup In this boat would not give the full potential for a tamar, as the Taymar has a "planing hull" and Is more suitable for brushless motors to get Its optimum speed out of It and for It to handle as It should.

if you prefer to us It at a slower speed, then please read my build blog thread on this site as all the details are given In It.

the Mersey and Tyne clases use older hull technology and are "non planing types", not designed for high sea speeds so to speak, so use lower revving motors, whereas the Taymar,Trent, Arun and Severn classes are by design a hull capable of higher speeds, where a normal "brushed" motor would not do justice. I did see someone modify their Trent and retro fit an I/C engine, but with only a single prop, the underside looked crap not having the twin props you would expect.

The motor/prop/battery and esc setup Is of prime Importance before you consider the build Inside the hull as It all has to be planned out to ensure correct weight balance, so think deep and long and hopefully you wil gte It right.
Weight Is also of prime Importance, use too much In the way og brass fittings and the boat will hardly move or give very short battery running time as the motors are working too hard pushing the weight as the hull Is too low In the water. this bit of Info was given to me when I bought the hull for my build, by the supplier and by following his words of wisdom, Ive got a Mersey that moves like It should. Brass Is great for fine details but It carries a lot of weight too, so In some areas, you have to forgive details for weight and use plastic Instead, try not to use too many wooden batterns as again,..... weight.

I can give you as much "guidance" as I can during your build, no problem, but suggest you speak to the kit supplier and see what they recommend for their hull, afterall, they will of tested It and no doubts many other buyers have too and told the supplier of their performance.
Response by Colin H. on the 6 years ago
Well you've certainly grabbed my attention, sound ON definately does It for me, my wife said It wasn't a model but a clever photographer using a real boat.ha ha ha.
Keep on sailing your doing a great job.
Response by peep31 on the 6 years ago
