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.

Aero-naut Jenny acquired

Aero-naut Jenny Posted on Nov 17, 2011 18:40:09

Today my aero-naut Jenny finally arrived. I bought it on e-bay Germany. No problem.

It will probably be some time (Next year) before I get to build this boat. After a brief look, the kit looks nice and I am looking forward to build it.

Two other guys from the model boat club will also be building this boat so I am looking forward to see what they come up with.

One of the guys has a build log at rc-groups here:

Drivre dog for Slo-mo

Billing Boats - Slo-mo-shun IV Posted on Nov 17, 2011 18:29:16

Today the e-bay drive dog and nut finally arrived along with some Teflon 4mm washers.
The parts looks fine, but I will have to adapt either the drive dog or the propeller. See the pictures below. My preference is to modify the prop as it has more material to give from.


The drive dog needs a bit more shaft so I will need a new prop shaft.
