My good friend, Tony Lombardo of Titusville, Florida gave me my 2nd RC Scale Electric Boat yesterday. According to Tony it is his very first "Kit" RC Boat and I must say Tony did a great job on it.
Length of Hull: 32 1/2 inches long
Width of Hull: 9 1/2 inches wide (Widest Point)
Power System: Upgrade 600 Brushed Motor in gearbox
Motor Pinion Gear Count: 18 (Brass Metal)
Gearbox Spur Gear Count: 38 (Nylon Composite Material)
Therefore, the motor has to turn 2.11
revolutions for each complete rotation of the Spur Gear (Propeller).
EDIT: On 10-10-2012 the Great Planes Electrifly GD-600 Gearbox was installed giving the power system 2.5:1 ratio (Motor will spin 2.5 times for every Propeller Revolution).
ESC: Traxxas XL-5 Brushed ESC with Reverse
Radio: Traxxas 27Mhz 2-Channel
Tony tells me the Kit resembles a US Coast Guard Rescue Ship and I performed a Google search and found this one:
Of course I have Video of today Test run at our Moon Port Modelers RC Club and it was fantastic Sunday morning with crystal calm water.
Here is Tony Lombardo's Picture when he had it with Brushless Power!!!
Sorry for the shaky Video! I was trying to Control the model while the Video camera!
