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.

Sea trials in a pool

Tamiya VOSPER MTBPosted by xilsoe Apr 05, 2009 09:16:00
Yesterday I brought the VOSPER to a pool that is used by my RC boat club to try it out and show it off. It seem that it is indeed very fast. I believe no one there could keep up with my boat at max speed. At the same time the boat is very manoeuvrable. All in all I am very satisfied with this boat smiley I think it is a little low in the water so I may try and run it with only one battery.

I also learned that the spoiler on the back could be pointed a little downwards. That should stop the nose from going up and the tail from going down when going fast. If and when I build another one, I will make that adjustable.

I also realized that my boat may be a little small for waves, so I think I need a larger boat. I already aquired a new boat for building: A Billing Boats: Phantom, kit no 710. I believe I already have all the radio equipment and most other stuff I need for making that kit. The most exciting part for me will be to build a boat hull out of wood.

I do however need to make a box for transportation of the VOSPER and some stuff in my apartment before I start that kit.
