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.

Now I also got a Revell S-100 Schnellboot

One nice thing is when you find a ship under the Christmas tree. This year I found a Revell 1/72 S-100 Schnellboot with the Flak 38 smiley At first sight it seems like a very nice kit and I naturally started looking around the web for build logs. I found a video at YouTube that seems very informative:
From the video it looks like he is using a Robbe roxxy 1820/16 brushless outrunner for motor. There is lots of other neat details on that boat so I may contact the builder when I get to do this kit.

I also found a place where better decals can be acquired: http://www.condordecals.com.ar/condordecals/cp_productos.php?pageNum_rsProductos=1&totalRows_rsProductos=30&rubroID=11&subrubroID=10

Here is a build description: http://www.ptboatworld.com/PT_Boat_Models/Schnellboot.htm

The build description points to a very good site for flags: http://www.modelflags.com/acatalog/D51_German_Naval_Ensign_1933_-_1945.html. The S-100 will definitely need a different flag as it is to be an RC model.
