Well here we are. I'm looking forwards to Thursday (work permitting) and or Sunday to get in my third run in. Thanks to Andy who came up with some more perspex I have now got a new cover fitted over the radio box area.  I hope to put my GPS in the boat on Sunday to check out just how fast it is going now. If I am happy then maybe the week after I will take it up to Willen Lake MK for a full on test.

Yes Andy BUT you will have to short out your launch angle. Don't chuck it, just place it in the water and the rest is up to me.

Hi Rich
I take it your ready for your 1st run then? PS stick a pic up here for the rest to see.
Willen Lake is in Milton Keynes. Just off the M1 J14.  A bit to far for you to come out to play I think. But if you want to come up to Stevenage you would be made welcome.

Very nearly Bill...batteries should be here tomorrow, as should the radio(with a bit of luck and a following wind), I'm hoping to take it down to the water by this weekend and get it wet, I'll post up some pics of it then.

That doesn't sound too far to come and play, used to travel a lot further to play with the subs...I may very well have a run up there soon as it's ready.

Bring it on Rich. Do you still run your Sub? If so maybe you could bring that along with you as well

Good luck with it Bill,by the way Andy has the right idea you have to chuck a rigger in with some revs or it wont get up and going very well.Just make sure you throw it with a slight nose up attitude so she doesnt submarine  :-)).Give her some throttle and chuck her in and she should take off and if Andy gets soaked then you know it was a good launch  :-)),sorry Andy  ok2.

I don't have an operational sub at this point in time Bill...U-33 is awaiting parts from the US of A, 'Mother Russia' is sold and goes off to it's new home tomorrow, and U-441(U-Flak1)is still in kit form at my cousin's in Vancouver BC awaiting collection when I go over later in the year.

Go electric...don't have that problem. PLACE the boat in the water, sit down on your seat, roll a smoke, pour a cup of liquid refreshment and turn up the wick. Nice and sedate...

Pics attached are of the rigger as it was when I bought it...

Nice little rigger that Rich is that what Euans making now?,what motor and power you running in that thing?.My lad has one of those minicat hydros and its running about 40 mph with a small brushless and lipo setup its only about 12" long  :o.Regarding tape for radio boxes ive been using Scotch Magic clear tape with good results on my big hydro its not quite clear its more semi clear if that makes sense lol.Cost me a cpl of quid from woolies so you might need to go elsewhere for it now,try wilkos.
