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
