An update on the boat, added a chrome stick-on strip for around the windscreen.

It was tested before the lockdown at 65% throttle and had a good turn of speed.

Cornering was dam good as well !!!

Yes Ashley I have removed the tape !!!

Hi. Harry, very VERY smart, I do like the blue and white colour scheme for this type of boat and that Crome trim is the bee’s knee’s.

Blue (two shades where required) and white are the only colours that Faireys should be painted in!

Hi Lads

Installing a new brushless motor from 28mm to a 35mm 1250kv 850 Watt on 4S lipo.

Same prop, but with a 60Amp ESC.

It's working great on my Corona Cabin Cruiser.

So I am trying the standardize my setups with motors , props, ESC and batteries .

So 24 to 30" one setup for planning hulls.

Another for over 30 to 40" !!!

As for my displacement hull boats 540 80 Turn rock crawler brush motors on 2S lipo batteries.

Harry Smith

After that TOO BIG !!!

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.
