    I used Al Matevas setup...expensive but it is belt driven, reliable and draws less than half of what the stock motors draw. http://www.shipsnthings.com/indexNS.htm

    Hi,
    If you have already replaced the ESC and that didn't fix the problem then obviously that is not your problem....the reason many people have separate battery packs for the receiver (including...

  5. RE: what do we have vii sub and hercules wood boat

    Hi,

    The sub sounds like a 32nd parallel kit. They are now out of business I believe. The tugboat sounds like it may be a Saito. They are still in business.

    What exactly is your...

    RE: Bismark pe set

    Craig,

    Which PE set did you buy? I am going to build one myself and am planning on installing the wooden deck. I saw somewhere (think it was Micro-Mark) they had a deluxe set, which came...

    RE: PT Boat Jet Drive Conversion

    Hi,

    PT boats were not shallow water boats. They were used in all kinds of seas, including open ocean. That is why they were so successful against Japanese maritime targets, both civilian and...

    RE: German Patrick Henry Sub

    Hi,

    Without seeing it I would surmise it is an Engel Patrick Henry. Static diver. I own a couple of Engels subs, very good quality and not cheap to buy.

    RE: Mounting the radio box

    Hi,

    A word of advice. Don't use balsa, it is much too soft and will come apart. Use a harder wood to securely mount the radio box. Look at it this way, if balsa was a good use for boats,...

    RE: adding sound effects?

    Hi,

    Well, one way that I get around that is to use mini speakers and an ipod. For example, I have a Model Slipways Trent class lifeboat. I mixed an engine startup with an engine running...

    RE: Spray Can Method

    Mike,

    I agree with Ron. Top Flite makes some paint that is fuel proof, up to a point. (15% I believe) It works well with glow power engines. If you are using gasoline, well, your best bet is...

    RE: Why are Sub Radios so Hard to Find?

    I agree with the previous poster. Before changing out to a different radio system you may want to do a bit of detective work. I have found that when servo wires are too close to each...

    RE: Converting a scale kit to rc

    Hi,
    I think Caswell Plating has conversions too. Another source may be Dave Welch. He makes semi-kits for just such conversions.

    You would probably be better served with a geared motor. You can toy with gear ratios for your particular application to find the best combination. A direct drive will most likely not be...

    RE: oberto 1/12th scale

    Hi,

    FYI: 5 minute epoxy is not waterproof and not nearly as strong as the 30 minute type. Never use 5 min epoxy for anything critical. It will eventually let you down.

    Hi,
    I believe you can send a radio in to Futaba and they can retune it. I have a 9CAP that is on 75Mhz and all the controls (and manual) say 72mhz. Contact Futabas service center, they will...
