Thread: Fairey Huntsman

Just seen this on the Mayhem forum:

The Turnigy G60 brushless motor was discussed on a previous thread as being good for the vintage style 48" planing hulls.

The G60 has been considerably reduced in HobbyKing's current cyber sale from £49.10 to £33.93, a 30% off (saving £15.17).
It says they are in stock in the UK.


Thanks to Mr Lownotes for the link.

Flash player is 'End-of-life' in 2020 (next year). Will the digital editions be converted to an alternative reader ?

Thread: General Data Protection Regulation 2018
27/03/2018 12:18:35

A note for all club committee members, especially membership secretaries.
GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation happens in May 2018.
This replaces the Data Protection Act from 25th May 2018.
GDPR appears to be concerned with any 'collections' of club members data (Name, Address, Telephone, etc.) and the member's permission for the purposes of which that data will be used for.
It may not affect your club, but check it out.
I may be opening a can of worms here.
If so, I apologise, but best to be safe than sorry and get fined for non-compliance.

Thread: Of all the model boat discipline’s that you’ve not yet tried, which would you most like to have a go at?
11/01/2018 13:52:31

I haven't voted yet as I want to have a bash at building an unorthodox craft that doesn't fit into any of the categories provided.

I suggest adding another choice - 'None of the above', i.e Unorthodox - If it floats, RC it.

I know, you can't please all the people all of the time - Sorry !

Thread: Wifi enabled cameras
19/11/2017 17:51:24

Has anyone tried the idea of using a wi-fi enabled camera underwater in a model sub ?

I am toying with the idea.

I know that the wifi link would be useless under water but the intention is to link to the camera at the surface (within range).

Interrogation and transmission of the video and pictures to a lakeside tablet/laptop should be possible.

The sub and camera would remain at the surface, in its operational medium, without needing removal to dry land.

I am blaming the parents. Successive generations are now breeding 'instant gratification' into children. The process is enabled by the credit card (by now, pay later).

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
