RE: 37 University Club

I'm sorry it's been so long since I checked in here! I'm sure you were waiting for an answer.
The story's pretty much the same wether you're building a plane, boat or car. When you buy a radio,...

RE: 37 University Club

Hi, Reinga-
Thanks for taking my news as it was meant! I felt bad about my response after posting it, hoping you didn't feel insulted. I got the impression it was a single channel unit from what I...

RE: 37 University Club

If you bought it new, I would contact the dealer (HobbyTron?) that you got it from (I googled "University Club 37" and they popped up as a dealer).
Since it's a single channel radio, it's almost...

RE: .21 Zippkit ready to go

Hi, all-
I haven't been active/participating in the past year or so, kind of put the boat aside. I happened to go to the Zipp Kit website last night, though- and say nearly every boat out of...

RE: R/C Laser receiver install question

That's what I figured, finding the piece of velcro under the deck... but I was adding my own receiver- didn't get it with the kit, so wasn't sure what to do with the antenna wires... would like to...

R/C Laser receiver install question

I just purchased a Laser sailboat without the rcvr/xmtr, as I have my own. I'm guessing that the receiver will install on the top of the compartment since there's a small piece of velcro already...

RE: Star 45 build started

Thanks, Al! I simply believe if something's worth doing, it's worth doing right. I want people to admire the work, not wrinkle up their noses when they see it! And I'm sure I got some of my ideas...

RE: Star 45 build started

The good old hand held palm orbital sander made quick work of smoothing everything up after a cursory block sanding. Here's a couple of pic's of it while masking off the sides/transom to glass the...
