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.

Sailing with one battery

Tamiya VOSPER MTBPosted by xilsoe Apr 13, 2009 17:03:16
Today I took the VOSPER to a pond I used earlier for testing. I wanted to show it off to Maja. I decided to try it with only one battery inserted. It definitely floats better on the water when using only one battery and it seems just as fast. I didn't see any problems with stability though the boat was lighter.

I also wanted to know whether the motor would get hot. So after sailing for some time I brought it in and felt the motor. It didn't feel hot at all, so I don't think I will have heat problems in this boat. I might if I decide to use a larger propeller. I have only used the 20mm propeller until now.

I am building a transport box for the VOSPER and it is almost done. Not a fancy thing, but the box should make it easier to transport this boat
