So I was having a re-arrange of some kit boxes and found these.


They were spares for a drone that I built, the motors are outrunners and I still have a battery pack as well.

Sooo methinks hard chine hull smiley, possibly mtb et al but if so what size? I do have 6 more motors plus 3 more esc's so could do a triple prop jobby!!!! devil

Would they be good enough? What do my esteemed learned colleagues think?

I await with interest smiley

HI Roger

How about a nice and sedate 3ft cabin cruiser?

Just the thing for messing about on the river.

Hi Roger

A RAF Pinnace 60', Aerokits Patrol boat or a Sea Rover cabin cruiser !!!

Or something around the 30-40" mark, so you have room for three motors, ESCs and batteries.

Thanks guys, keep them coming smiley, would I have temperature issues?

Is there a PT or MTB design about that size Harry?

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.
