Bill finally launched his boat. 😀 The weather was kind for some of the time so I was able to take some pictures and a short (not very good) video on the water.

What a beast...but, a beautiful beast. Very well-done.

Arowana 22.2" mono EP (Topsy-Turvy) - Posted: 6 years ago by aquamatic80
mdlbt.com/5989   >> Permalink
This Is an Arowana 22.2" mono EP hull, allegedly self righting, however, on It's maiden run I turned It too fast and flipped It, sadly the self righting didn't, and a hatch clip failed, the end result was that after about 40 seconds of being upside down, the back end dissapeared, and It ended up 70% submerged with about 6" of bow pointing towards the sky. I have since had a play In the bath, and cannot get It to self right, also It leaks water from the factory fitted divider for the flood chamber, so not the quality that I thought It was, don't quite know how to rectify that one.

Predator Outrigger MK2 (Esox-Lucius) - Posted: 6 years ago by aquamatic80
mdlbt.com/5988   >> Permalink
This Is a lighter version of my MK1 previously posted, lighter by some 80g, and having a slightly larger prop, I assumed It would be faster, the reality was that the X438 was too much, so will go back to an X435. It ran a bit wet as well, so now I have adjusted the angle of attack on the prop, which should sort things out. The 6 Inches of boat tip In the pond was my Arowana 22.5" mono, It flipped and a hatch clip failed, and that was the end result, so I was trying to nudge It In, and I failed, luckily my brother Is good with a fishing rod and recovered It.

Graupner Systems Catamaran (Second hand, and refitted) with Leopard 2860 5050kv Motor, It has 2 x 11.1v 4200mAh 50c-100c batteries In parallel, as the motor has a max draw of 120A, The prop Is an octura X435 connected to a Prestwich models Strudder.
This was It's Second run, , this run was very successful, the speed took me a little by surprise, hence the expletive (Sorry). I would love to know the actual speed. After a short run, a connection on the electrics came adrift. all repaired and ready to run again now.
Response by CraigRobotham on the 4 years ago
Nice speed , what are the run times like ? .

This was It's maiden run, and Initially I hit the throttle too hard, and made It tail walk. and the coupling came adrift. after a little tighten up, the second run was very successful.

Predator Outrigger MK1 Outrigger Hydro - Posted: 6 years ago by aquamatic80
mdlbt.com/5804   >> Permalink
Built from a .PDF plan I found on the net, this 22" Outrigger Hydro sports a Hobbywing 3600Kv Brushless, along with a Hobbywing 60A esc, a 5000mAh 11.1v 45C LiPo, and an Octura X435 Prop connected to a Strudder from Prestwich models.. It weighs 930g without the battery, with the battery, she goes 1386g.
This was It's Maiden run, at Herbert Woods Boatyard, at Potter Heigham Norfolk. It ran very nicely, but can do with a little tweaking to get more speed.
For the record, I did not swear, It was someone onlooking.
Response by BOATSHED on the 6 years ago
HI aquamatic80
She's awsume, 😎 I think that from the way she ran I would have said the same 😭 . 🤐 How much more tweeting would she need?
Cant wait to see your MkII 😀
Response by aquamatic80 on the 6 years ago
I have not played with the prop depth and angle yet, however, she has been banished to the back of the cupboard to make way for the MK2, to be re-visited a later date.

Part built Models by design hull. But enough together for some sea trials.
Fitted with twin 900 motors, twin 14.8 lipo batteries and a full action electronics power package AND sound system. It sounds as well as It goes !
Response by peep31 on the 6 years ago
could you tell me what size speaker you went for I.e. the 10w or the 40w I'm just about to order mine,just got to have one.many thanks arthur
Response by Gregg on the 6 years ago
The size of speaker all depends on available space. If you fit the biggest possible speaker Im a cramped position, Its never going to give out maximum output, as objects In front of It will disperse the sound waves, so In this Instance, Its far better tio fit a smaller speaker and be able to allow free space for the sound waves to exit properly.
Obviously, If you can fit the bigger version, Its gives more bass and sounds far better.
remember to Install the speaker on a firm base plate and ensure this fits neatly to wherever you have decided to Install. now to create the "speaker sound box". If you think of an ordinary speaker at home on your stereo or surround sound system, It Is In a sealed box [or cabinet], well same applies to get optimum performance out of a speaker In your boat too. I fitted mine In the bows of the Mersey, facing the stern, and used the "not used" bow section as the sound box, you also have the deadening effect of the water, which aids the sound output out of the speaker. remember to make an "air port" In the speaker plate, to allow air "in/out" too, not too big or small a hole mind.
the better you create the sound box and make sure the space In front of the speaker Is clear, the better the sound output.
best of luck.

Incidentally, I have now purchased an m troniks version, I WAS going to Install In another "smaller" boat, but after listening to It, I dont think I'll bother and save up for another action system and stick the mtroniks one on ebay!
Response by peep31 on the 6 years ago
many thanks for the Info I think I will go for the big base one as I have plenty of room In my boat Its quite large one so won't be a problem for room If you look In the build blog section on this site you will see It.its the 60inch fire boat,I will let you know how I get on once It has arrived and fitted.

cheers for the help Arthur. you boat sound so good 👍
