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.

This blog is open for comments so feel free to leave a comment.

First water test of the Phantom

Billing Boats PhantomPosted by xilsoe Nov 18, 2009 17:02:17
A lot of things have happened since my last post. All the RC gear has been installed and I installed a battery tray. Last night I completed the rudder servo mount so today the boat was ready for it's first sea trial. So I brought the boat along to work, where we have an indoor pool.

When I put the boat into the water it floated nicely and when I tried it out it performed really well smiley The motor seems to have plenty of power so I couldn't try the top speed of the boat because the pool is quite small. I'll need to try that out somewhere else and preferably when the weather is a lot nicer than the storm and rain today.
I would like to try it out at high speed before I mount the deck. This is to know whether trim flaps are needed as I would like to mount trim flaps before mounting the deck.
Another option would be to just mount trim flaps so they are there if I need them smiley

A college shot the pictures below when I launched the boat. I am the one with the very short hair smiley I promise to shoot and post some pictures of the RC installation, before I mount the deck
