RC Helicopter flying, RC Cars and RC boating

Made for other people and me to track what I am doing when with my remote controlled units. It started out with helicopters. Hence the name.

If only one of my units is of interest, this unit can be clicked on the right and only posts regarding that unit shows up.

New servo mounting in Slo-mo

Billing Boats - Slo-mo-shun IV Posted on Nov 13, 2011 11:45:58

As I may have stated before, I am trying to move the centre of gravity forward in my Slo-mo-shun IV. The first project is to move servo further ahead, so I am making a new servo mount.

I also started working on my new figure. So far not much has happened except gluing and and filling. The figure also features a set of racing goggles that I didn’t make a photo of.
I don’t know how high the figure will need to be yet so there is no point in trying to extend the body yet.

Here are some pictures of it all:

Maja finally waterproof

Robbe Möwe Posted on Nov 13, 2011 11:36:54

Last week I brought Maja to the swimming lanes with the boat club. I had put some shaft grease in the rudder shaft. This seem to have fixed the water ingress problem.

Maja is however quite overpowered so for manoeuvring it will probably need to go slow. That is not really a surprise smiley

I don’t think I’ll be using this boat a lot. It will mostly be used for manoeuvring contests and perhaps for practise before those. What is really nice is how small it is.
