KD Perkasa - Posted: 17 hours ago by cormorant   >> Permalink
I acquired this boat part built some months ago through Dave M.
I have not put too much scale in detail but I am quite pleased with the overall finish. It is powered by two brushless 1250KV out runners and in the first sea trials I used 12v lead acid batteries. (That video was posted a few weeks ago -
This video shows its second sea trial after I was persuaded to use lipos. The difference in performance is very pleasing.
Thank you Dave M for your help and advice during the build.

Hi Steve,

Great job on the Perkasa!
There's a big difference between the lead acid and the Lipo.
The Lipo and Brushless combination is a winner!

Response by Dave M on the 16 hours ago
Looks just right Steve. You will never want to use any other combination for a power setup. Do check your coupling and motor mounts, my small Crash Tender brushless worked loose - not good.
Response by cormorant on the 16 hours ago
Thank you Dave. I also have been caught out by loose couplings so checking is high on my list.

Perkasa 49 inch - Posted: 2 months ago by lesfac   >> Permalink
I bought an action camera from Aldi forn £50 and it seems to to be a bargain. Just had to try it out mounted on my Perkasa
Response by RNinMunich on the 1 month ago
Very tidy boat and nice Captain's POV 👍 Next step cam rotation? Limit switches or servo with travel extension ? After that telemetry with video back to base ?? Some sets have a good 5.8Gig back channel for this.
I recently bought the Toshiba Sport camera, with a waterproof case, so I might try it on my 107cm 1:72 Type IIA U26 ! Plug in mount instead of the 88 on the foredeck. For rescue I have the Tug Southampton, bought RTR and modified slightly so I can at least push home. Not easy with long thin ships like my destroyer so thinking of a steel plate on the bow and a neodym magnet on the tugs winch 😎
Response by Dave M on the 1 month ago
Neodym magnets are excellent for holding hatches, decks etc in place.
I have just sourced a selection from ebay and bought two 10x10mm. had not considered using as a rescue aid but these magnets are exceptionally strong and once attached are very difficult to remove so certainly up to rescuing a model. We sail many yachts and it can be difficult to find a safe attachment without causing damage.
I do hope you keep us posted on the automation of you features. On water shots are always good especially if they capture other models on the water.
Response by RNinMunich on the 1 month ago
Thanks Dave, since I just retired I have more time to realise some of these dreams. 😉 I already have the parts, will keep you posted on success or 'back to the drawing board'. Cheers Doug
