Two Dickie Seaport rebuilds
« on: July 29, 2016, 09:57:26 PM »

Hello ,


I am from the Netherlands and after reading a lot on this forum i found the time to post my Dickie Seaport rebuilds.

My first was a simple conversion to a Smit look a like.
Motor i used was a graupner speed 500E and 45mm prop on a new shaft.


My second conversion i took more time to think it over what i want
A navy Tug look a like.


Motor and esc not yet installed but i will use a simple setup like 540 motor and traxxas XL5 esc and sla 6v batt and i`m keeping the standard shaft and prop.


Later more ......

Two fine conversions :-))  Focused
I have been informed by the Bosun,
I have to do another for a grandson
just coming into the age of driving one.
I think HobbyKing have them for about
40 pounds.

I bought mine when they first came out - had to send away to London for it - they were 100.00p at the time. :o

It's now sitting in a corner, covered in all sorts of stuff, waiting in the queue for conversion. :((

Found a used 500E motor and put it in today everything works ok. Traxxas esc is not ideal it has a break so i will search for a new esc .
