Slo-mo-shun IV videos

Billing Boats - Slo-mo-shun IV Posted on Sep 27, 2011 17:19:08

Last Sunday I brought Slo-mo-shun IV to the local pond to try out the ride pads and for Jens to make a video. Regarding the ride pads: I find that they improve steering. Steering isn’t perfect though. I am not sure if they also increases the tendency for the nose to go up. I am suspecting that more air will go under the boat with the shape they have presently.

I wasn’t aware that Carsten would be around and also have his video recorder along but the result is that he also made a video. Furthermore I found a video on youtube, where Slo-mo-sion IV sets a new world record.

Maja Motor/ESC update

Robbe Möwe Posted on Sep 27, 2011 17:05:53

This weekend I did some experiments with the ESC and a new motor I got for my Maja boat. My conclusion was that the ESC was damaged. Fortunately a new one is on it’s way. Further I discovered that this motor gets rather warm. So now I am looking for ways to improve cooling.
