    On a dark and stormy night you should read this site in its entirety. A wealth of information is here for the taking. You can learn most everything from techniques for building an exact replica of the Dauntless down to location of heads to proper and acceptedattire for airports. Info available for wiring, ESC selection, prop selection and painting. This is a most unique and extraordinary site.
    Learn it. Live it. Love it.

    RE: the unofficial home of the dumas dauntless

    Wagonman that is spectacular! I absolutely love the wood planking on the deck (and wish I'd thought of that for mine way back when). Really adds interest and the stain color offsets the boat's paint colors perfectly. And the shine on all the surfaces is gorgeous. You've got one very good looking boat there for sure and should be proud of such exceptional craftsmanship! I'm really looking forward to seeing you finish out the exterior of that fine yacht!

    Hi Wagonman,

    You are doing a tremendous job on this yacht...I see that she is well built by extra the work you did in her superstructure and she is quickly transforming into a proud yacht.

    Very well done!

    -Rich.

    RE: the unofficial home of the dumas dauntless

    I've been banging my head trying to figure out the best (cheapest $ per Mah) deal on battery packs for my boat so I can finally graduate from SLA to NiMH. Today I ordered 4 x 4500 Mah Packs. They're not the standard RC sub-c packs but weigh about the same. These packs are made in Japan and look more like they were designed for some specialized use... pics and sea trials to follow.

    RE: the unofficial home of the dumas dauntless

    Hey Deepsky-
          I really am impressed with your filet work! Do you use your finger or a tool (dowel or shaped plastic) ? How do you work a filet on an inside corner?  How do you finish sand these magnificent filets? Would you use loose paper in you hand or wrap around dowel? I have been practicing on scrap pieces but haven't come very close yet to what I see in your pics. Can you give me any guidance here?

    RE: the unofficial home of the dumas dauntless

    Captains:
    Here is where the boat is as of yesterday. Many in betweeners are missing because site will only allow 3 pics this time.
    Fig 1 shows framing and walls completed. Framing allowed for doors and vents. These I located at great expense and made a road map to to find them later.
    Fig. 2 shows me glassing the upper. Maybe this will be a good visual for a later builder. Really is a piece of cake. I used Z-poxy finishing resin. It is very thin out of the box and has a very long working time. No panic!
    Fig.3 shows bridge upper and lower ready for windshield. The radius is already in and match each other.( Thanks Rich!) The bridge roof is different from Dumas in that it is INSIDE of side pieces making windshield very easy to make. I am going to form each curved corner from pattern I made in paper.
    Everybody is sure quiet.
    Kokanee wil be running soon.
    Steve

    RE: the unofficial home of the dumas dauntless

    Steve - boat's looking real nice. Man I wish I had the hints on this site when I built mine.

    BTW you should be able to post up to 12 pictures as long as the total stays under 6MB. Since most current digital cameras/smartphones take high quality pics that are around 2MB in size each, being able to only post three sounds right, unless you reduce their size/quality (that's what I typically do).

    RE: the unofficial home of the dumas dauntless

    Afternoon to all captains. Not to much new on the dauntless. Been to darn hot down here in Fl. Have been playing around with the helm console. Picked up a nice looking brass wheel that I may try to mount. Started making the cradle but I'm not sure of the height to make the frame. Looks like its about a inch and a half. Any one know what it should be . Thanks Frank

    RE: the unofficial home of the dumas dauntless

    Caps - Here's a look at the new 12 volt NiMH 4500MAh packs. Four 10-cell packs total. They are the same weight as 12v sub-c packs, and less than half the weight of the SLA batteries they're replacing, so I'm interested to see what that will do to the waterline.

    I've temporarily zip-tied them to the existing battery trays that once held the SLAs. I just added foam padding to the bottom to keep the packs from sliding around.

    Since I'm not a fan of 100+ degree weather, I hope to get an early morning run in sometime soon to try these boogers out.

    Deep - I found them on clearance for $25 each x 4, and another $25 shipping. So $125 total for all 4 shipped.

    RE: the unofficial home of the dumas dauntless

    Sorry Deep they are from a surplus seller out of Canada and once they went on sale so cheap, the inventory dried up fast. I was lucky to get four before all were gone. I bought hoping they are high quality and legit amp rating since they're made in Japan, not unregulated China. Right place, right time I guess.

    Working on getting all the connections made tonight... they arrived charged so getting closer to a trial run [8D].

    RE: the unofficial home of the dumas dauntless

    Not a Dauntless but DF was asking to see photos of my latest project. I picked up an IMEX grand Banks Trawler that was a ARTR model. I converted the twin screw s to separate throttle as in my Dauntless so I can run it with my same xmtr as Dauntless. (with 2.4 you can pair more receivers as long as you only turn on one at a time.) I added some details that are almost always found on the real GB49 like swim platform, bimini top, canvas around upper railing,etc. It also had an out of scale Zodiac dingy so I replaced it with my spare Dauntless dingy with a cover to match the rest of the canvas and put on some fenders painted to match also.
    Hope you enjoy.

    Hey captains! The new RCUniverse is up and running... It looks nice! Its great to see all of your progress! I am now in Dallas and getting settled in over here. I have been seeing many nice ponds to run boats. I cannot wait to slip the Dauntless in water. When the Dauntless and the rest of my possessions were packed up and sent here I did not take chances and send the LIPOS along. Rather, I played it safe and packed them up separately and shipped them via UPS ground. Today they arrived in good order so it won't be long before I start tinkering with the big D.

    Hey bill, that is a beautiful boat. She looks like a great compliment to the Dauntless.
