I'd be happy with that but I don't think I,ll get it . My hull is heavier and I'm using a clutch. Like to see yours on the move. My top secret mounts were not compatible with the sikk so i'm stopped again.
Anybody see the big expresscraft apache for sale here on RCU? Daddy likes!!!!!!!

Hey apache1 im running a similar setup im my apache I cant get pics up yet no camera but im running the same sikk with the same exact header and pipe. I had it on the lake today and was doing about 44mph on gps and I think it still has a little more left. Im running no trim tabs and it seems to run great with out them.. Good luck with your build.

sorry to change subject. Who would make an operable quad exhaust kit?  I saw this youtube video of these 84" apaches.  Looks sweet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ijiT...eature=related

Also, I never ran a kill switch back in the day.  I ran a fail safe but it only returned the throttle to idle.  Guess if I had a kill switch on my old enforcer it would have never hit the steel wall.  I guess this is standard?

I did not see a clutch on the list but I may have missed it with some of that German. If you not going to run a clutch dump the water pump and anything else you were planning to use with it. Minus the tubbing of course.

Also drop the - Long Venturies they do nothing to help on a 257 or 929 carb and filter your gas out of the can don't restrict your fuel to the carb by using inline filters, so the Re-Buildable Fuel filter can come off the list as well.

I see it now. Nice piece, he has some very nice stuff and prices are much better than MHZ.

Don't forget to start a build thread. We love those with lots of pictures.....

Oooh Noooo Never...

It's the test boat Bill Woods of Performance Models used to build and test his Apache's in the 80's. Not very many of them around. I have another one and a friend of mines has the only other one I know of. I plan to get her ready one more time for a final trip around the lake before she becomes a shelf queen.

60" x 14" Seamless deck.

Right now you have decided what your putting in her lets see if we cant figure out the best rail setup.I was thinking seeing as you have two pipes you may want an offset radio box on the right? if so i can lower the rails aft to allow it to sit over the rails or to one side any input Leo?.I do like rails locked into transom it adds stiffness to the hull etc so im not really wanting to shorten the rails if possible.Anyone know the measurements of these motors including mounts so we know what were working with ?.All suggestions welcome before i start installing them .

Let me think about this and see if I can find measurments on the combo. Mart I wouldn't shorten the rails either but if you got rid of them this should work just fine.

I LOVE that engine mount system!!
Where can I find one of them?
With that system, we could do without rails, and - Mart- just stick another layer of carbon upon the full lengh of the hull, and stiffness is achieved!

P.s.: yes, your apache really deserves to be a shelf queen!

Ok no rails,makes my job easier ,dont think she needs any more carbon as ive allready installed more cloth along the keel and 4" up either side of it the full lengh of the hull.I can add carbon if you want but it will just add un needed weight.

ps not to mention more £

You are going to love the WD200 hardware. It is REALLY nice stuff. I have the clutch/gear box sitting in a box waiting for a project hull...the WD200 Z-Drives are really easy to set up but you will need some SERIOUS servos for each one (Werner suggested at least 275-300 oz/in PER servo) similar to the MHZ Z-Drives. Moving the thrust vortex takes some serious power!!! The on other detail that I might suggest on the drive lines, stop the stuffing tube just at the transom and take the teflon liner ALL the way into the front of the Z-Drive. Werner made that suggestion as well and I am VERY glad I took his advice. Keeps the Cable protected and greased MUCH better than leaving it open from the transom to the front of the drive.

Here are some pictures of my Dumas Scarab and video with the same drive. I think it's a fun setup.

We just ran the shootout here at LOTO and learned a really hard lesson about fail safes vs kill switches the switch gear failed in a friend's boat and his fail safe did not have the power necessary to return the throttle servo to "safe" position...the boat ran full song into the side of the pontoon boat tied up on the dock. Both the pontoon owner AND the RC boat owner were none-too happy and the RC boat is a total loss. Thank GOODNESS no one was hurt. Had he been using an RC Kill Switches Killer Bee or an Isamtec kill switch it would have grounded the ignition and the boat would have drifted to a safe hault WELL before the boat or dock was in proximity.

Long story short: the $100 KILL SWITCH is the BEST investment you can make on your hobby, you and your loved ones' safety, AND the long term use of all of our running spots so we can continue to grow our hobby...

At least that is my $00.02

The drive is really nothing more than a steerable strut. The only thing taking the load is the flex shaft. HOWEVER, because we are to use a SQUARE DRIVE cable with this setup at the Collet end you want to make sure the thrust bearing is riding on the back edge of the drive. The shrinkage takes place at the front of the shaft because the cable will also shrink when steering if you cut it short or permantly affix it to the collet then it shrinks under load AND in a turn and WILL cause some really fun repairs...

Got it Harvey, thank you!

Witch option of the killer RC offering do you suggest to buy?

For the WD200 drives, won't a 1/4 round flexi work when milled to square at the end?

Cheers,
AJ

Never ever mill the ends of a flex cable you be asking for problems. The square end is made with a multi-ton press and die.

The mount is made my RCMK.

I find it so strange that NOBODY has come up with steerable drives that also allow Trim adjustment via radio...

Have my thinking cap on to see if I can modify any of the exisiting offering to do this...

MHZ dirves have that option. Not worth it my .02 always follow the K.I.S.S. rule.

Trim the boat for the days water condition if it changes, the adjust the next time in.

I don't know what to say about that. They have them for sale on the US site. BTW never deal with the US guy, I'll warn this one time and won't say another word about it.

I'm posting the link here but it maybe removed by the admins since the US chap seems to have a problem with us sometimes. If the links below are removed search the MHZ for "Quicktrim".
