To be honest they’ve tried to copy a Swan and produced a pig  {-)  and access to the motor is worse


Andy,
 I also noticed the poor motor access. Will mention it when/if they reply. I agree with the poster that said he did not much like the dumas kit’s. However I have heard they greatly improved their quality & quality control.

I echo Roy's wife's amazement at the difference a cataract operation makes. I am blind in one eye, ("one eyed old age pensioner with a beard" according to my wife) and so when I had the cataract removed it was a s**t or bust job for my sight. I was fitted with a transparent eye cover and could have, but didn't, driven home. 2 hours and job done. Colours were bright again and I didn't need extra light.

I have had materials from Slec in the past and I was disappointed in the plywood I received.   It was supposed to be 5ply birch - but - I received 3ply.  It splinters too easily when cut.   Their strip material is okay; but; if I want real high quality good grade ply - I like to deal with Mantura models.  They are quite expensive, but, I think if you want good quality - here you get what you pay for - fair comment the plywood size isn't that big for what you pay - but - you know you will get one of the best grades of material.   Even their strip material - such as the mahogany I use for exterior planking has very few defects if any.  As the old saying goes - if a job is worth doing, its worth doing right - or why spoil the ship for a hap'orth of tar.

I have also dealt with Cornwall models a few times but a few times their packing is to be desired when they post it out to you.  Had one or two pieces which have snapped, not Cornwall models fault, but a size 11 boot by some mail person.




Another place that comes to mind is JoTika - http://www.jotika-ltd.com/Pages/1024768/index.htm  expensive again but good quality.

I agree with Ray. Nice people but I'm lucky enough to be close enough to collect if urgent!

Hi Richard, there's no point in joining the battery packs, just use one for each esc.
  Re the connectors, they are advertised on the same page as the battery link you posted.
  Here is an article you might find helpful in choosing and soldering them

I would not advise extending the wires, just plan the layout and instalation to suit them.

I've always used Mantua Models in Windsor. Perhaps not the cheapest but superb quality and really helpful, Russell in particular. I've had lime and mahogany strip and their ply sheet.
