Looks like the wrong props to me.
You need kort props for max efficiency.
If the shafts are M4 thread, then a pair of
M4 Kort props are what you need.

Hi netley

Drive shaft that comes with the kit is an m4 I think
Hopefully that m4 will looks as good as the m5
I like how it looks

In HAWAII you have guys who maintain yachts
These guys have cartridges of glue to repair and fix the windows of boats
You can stick everything on everything, and that reflects.
 I make  eight kits MODEL SLIPWAY, I stuck all my decks with this glue and I have never had problem, I also stuck of the PVC on the hull with no problem at all.
It is good for the big solid and tight collages(stickings).
That catches up the space.
You put it generously and you cut what exceeds with a cutter when it is dry
Hi gazou
At first I didnt know where, what types of glue I needed
I went down to fiberglass hawaii
I end up getting a glue they used on surfboards
I must say its the best glue I have ever used



this glue will stick anything to everything
And its waterproof hard as hell when it dries
And its clear
One type of glue for everything on this aziz
I can also use it as a gap fillings and just sanded shaped it down  O0

with all these boats fishing boats barges warships tugs ferry etc. On this island
You would think youll see lots of scale rc boats
 BUT NO lol

Update

I called harbormodels about my props problems
They offered me a new props
I asked them about the old props
If I can send it back to them
But they said its not worth shipping it back to them
Since the shipping cost is high
 I asked them to hold on the props for not
Since ill be ordering my motors this friday
Figured save some from shipping
Least what I can do for them losing money on those props


Uses Propulsion Package SLIP02 on 6 Volts Which Includes:
TWO(2) 6:1 Geared Motors
TWO(2) 6mm X 4mm Couplers
ONE(1) VIP40 AMP Speed Control

This is the motor listed on their website
Like I mentioned before
This is my first time building anything
I dont know what's the best motor or gadget for this boat
If I know I would get the best I can put on this aziz  {-)



And those two extra props I have?
Ill make a crate or palette and put it on the cargo bay O0

Ok now im really confused
Someone told me I should go brushless
Its the best motor to run on the aziz
Like the turnigy
I dont understand the part of the esc needs to be programmed?

Should I go brushless of I should just go with the recommended power gear for this aziz

Tugs and displacement hull need nice slow revving motors, about 5,000 to 10,000 RPM.
Not many brushless motors like such slow speeds. You can get 'sensored' motors and controllers but
you pay a premium for them. ( I think the 'rock climbing' cars use sonsored motors. )
eg. http://teamnovak.com/products/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5&products_id=524

Some modellers have successfully used brushless in displacement type hull but sorry I don't know the motor specs....  {:-{

Brushless is probably going to become 'standard' over the years to come, but given your (and no offence meant) apparent technical understanding I'd say stick with what is recommended. There are some long threads on MBM of people trying to help others programme ESCs, so get something that is plug-and-play - ie. purpose built marine ESCs with a couple of standard motors, which is probably what that SLIP02 package gives you. And Harbor Models will be able to support you and sort any faults, etc.

Yeah youre right I think ill stick with whats recommended for this aziz
Im no techie by all means
Unless theres a brushless that is plug and play
None of that programming crap  {-)
Lany way I just want to keep it simple for now
I can always changed everything later on I guess


I wonder what is the biggest rc scale tugboat kit fiberglass online
I may want something that can pull me on a row boat someday hahahahha

You are going to need a flexi coupling with a thread on one end and a clear hole with a grub screw on the other.
You may need to buy two standard ones  (one threaded and the other plain)  and swop the ends over.

Looks about right.
I suggest you get:
2 x Kardan Style Motor Couplers, with the couplers needed for your motors and shafts
2 x MFA Coupler Body
2 x Super Navy Coupler
You can then combine those into a pair of proper Kardan shafts (like the 'Coupling for 2.3mm to 3mm Shaft' further down the page. That will make alignment of motor and shaft a lot less critical (ie. difficult) than using a single joint coupling.
Ends up like this:

Which motor can give me more thrust?
Someone told me 5 5:1 gets me more thrust?
This aziz will be running on the beach
I need all the thrust I can get to get through those waves

There is a Youtube video somewhere of an Aziz 'at sea'. German IIRC, probably from a year or two ago. Might be worth searching it out.

Hopefully it can handle the waves just like that one
ill make sure everything will be water tight

I just made the biggest mistake on my aziz so far

I totally forgotten a little space for the rudder to moved around
Now its sitting on the glass fiberglass
And the kort nozzles doesnt fit in right
Now I have to dig it all out again
Crap >>:-(

It's not a mistake, it's a little piece of experience to add to all those other little pieces you'll pick up as you go along.

Although that doesn't make it any better when you screw up!   >>:-(

It'll look great when you've fixed it.
