Alrighty!
Good idea Ian! Bill - It has an RCMK K600S with a gearbox splitting it to twin props  :-) It has a killer Bee fail safe in it. Ah okay - I haven't seen the lake. I was going to go this year but somehow I missed that it was on!? Yeah I would bring it next year if it would be of interest.

And this is what I did with a Zen powered Hydro at the Mayhem meet in Llanberis North wales a few years ago. I think its was doing around 50 MPH Its hard to see but the boat was about 5ft long, Now that was FUN FUN FUN !

Sorry if this has been asked before but are Petrol boats allowed on then lake at Wicksteed?
Just to clarify. IC boats are NOT normally allowed on the lake at Wicksteed.

Would we be able to get an exemption just for that one weekend of the year ?

Right just to clarify

Under normal circumstances WPMBC doesn't allow I/C powered boats on the lake, however, the Mayhem weekend risk assessment does include a section covering the use of said boats for a limited time and speed on the water. As long as they don't exceed 15mph on the water and have a kill switch, which is accepted by BillD203 or Steamboatphil then you can use it when we've cleared the lake of other model boat sailors. They usually stay on for about 20 minutes and this usually repeated two or three times a day.

I have a set of rules for demolition boats that I could amend for springers.  Just build rules to make it fun.

Battle Springers.
If I remember correctly, we discussed some very basic suggestions

1. Standardised size for springer  O0
2. Made of balsa only (easily destroyed)   <:(
3. Anything goes except ready made power tools (you need to invent something really diabolical)  %%
4. Last springer sailing in more or less one piece is deemed the winner. :-))

This could be fun {-)

Springer wars sounds like fun.

Might be worth having a weight limit as well, just like robot wars.
It is worth someone doing a quick tutorial on how to enclose all the electrics in a butty box, or otherwise waterproof them, to save them.
Will you allow flame throwers, blow torches? It may be an advantage so strong that it becomes the only real weapon of choice, and thus defeats the fun.


An alternative, if some think Springer Wars too destructive, labour lost etc.
Springer jousting. Just need to knock the superstructure off of the opponent. With a standard for size and fixing of superstructure (or not fixed down) and standard for lance. Superstructure can have a uniform shape but then be painted however.
Just a thought.

I'd be up for full on battle springers but after giving it a few hours thought some of the truly dangerous ideas I've come up with I can see it getting rather out of hand given another 11 months to work on them!  <*<

It's model boat mayhem!! And you should see the things that I have came up with for it %) %)


1 thing is banned would have to be live ammunition.....
Not because it's dangerous I can get some "good" stuff but Nick may get some cannon rounds going spare from the Tornados  <:( <:(
