Steamboat66,

... but the noise was the issue. I even reduced the size of the prop to 35mm x 3 blade and it ran cooler and had no performance, but was still too noisy....

Ian.

Interesting! What kind of noisy? The high pitched brushless whiny noise, or prop noise?

G'day Martin,


High pitched brushless whine! Really goes through your head, but going to the bigger brushed motor solved all problems. Basically silent running now. And also, the cheap brushed ESC gives equal performance both forward and reverse, which the brushless didn't. 


But, like I said somewhere in a previous post a while go, the brushless 2836- 1500kv running the fast boat, is acceptable by my lady, who owns both Albert and the Fast boat. She hated the whine in Albert to the point where she didn't want to run him, but now she's a very happy lady.


And thanks for sorting those previous posts which were totally out of order.

G'day Lynn,


You won't be sorry, as this is a really nice kit. Well thought out and the laser cutting is excellent, so it's pretty easy to put together.


It's a great little runner as well, but I'm much happier with the Brushed setup, after the dramas of the Brushless.


Any problems just ask, and one of us should be able to help.

G'day Lynn,


When you get the kit, you'll find you can assemble the laser cut in hull ply frame in about 20 minutes, then run your glue around all the joints and leave to set. It's so well planned and cut, that it fits together without the need for a building jig or frame, as it is totally self supporting without distortion. Just brilliant! I saturated my frame with a clear timber sealer to waterproof it all before the next step.


Once that bit is done, little trimming is required to get it to drop in the hull. This kit makes you lazy, as it's just so well thought out and it virtually falls together! Not like some!

Hi lynneatson, sorry it's taken awhile for me to get back to you regarding Albert, yes the kit's are still available and I am about to do another run of them very very soon, things have been very hectic here and I am behind in replying to all enquiries.
They are still $450.00 AUD and as soon as I can I will get a quote on freight for you, would you like it express or would you prefer a cheaper rate?

ahoy Phil
Thanks for your reply.
I do understand being overwhelmed at times and there is not a great rush as long as we know we are underway.
How would you prefer to be paid? Visa, paypal, or? Just let me know when you can.
I am ready to order when you are.
Should I send shipping info etc to you via private message?
I am really excited about Albert.
This is great.
Do you have any other customers in the Toronto area.
Are you on Facebook?
Again Thx

G'day again Lynn,


It's Phil ( Mermod ) who does the kit, not me.


Thought you might have had it by now, that's all.

Hi Lynne, sorry for the delay, Albert has been on the back burner for a while now but I do have enough parts to do you a kit (finally) I have been using this build log as the instructions so I'm not sure how you will go now Photobucket have blocked half of them, having said that you really cant go wrong with the building system I use.
If you would like to PM me your details I will get a freight quote for you, as before the kits are $450 AUD and payment is through PayPal (plus the PayPal fee) as it's been a while since I sent one out it might take me a few days as I will cut a complete kit and get a firm quote on freight.
Again I do apologize for taking some time in getting back to you, unfortunately health and family life have taken priority for some time now.

G'day Lynn,


"xxxxx" if I know where all my images went on this thread, as they were mine and loaded directly by me, nothing to do with that Phototrashbucket bunch!


Anyway, if you need any images or help, I've still got most, if not all of them on file here.


I notice that some of Phill's early images are still active on this thread, or were when I checked a few minutes ago.

That's a good question for Martin.


What happened to all the images that went missing from the thread that had no connection with the Ransomware mob?

Thank's for that, I do what I can when I can, seems to be a roller coaster arrangement, up one minute down the next, I'm just not game enough to have the necessary surgery........so many risks, modify the way you live and put up with fatigue and the constant feeling of being on a boat or have the surgery and maybe turn out ok or still have the same symptoms plus be deaf as well, I love my music too much to risk that :)
