Voith-Schnider Units
« on: April 05, 2009, 12:38:52 PM »

Hi guys

Just wondering if there are any kits out there except the Parat from graupner that uses the voith schnider system as i am interested in these as they are something quite different.

Cheers

you can buy them seperately as a unit in their own right. see the manufacturers web site.
i always thought they'd go well on a CALMAC Jupiter model.
neil. :-))

Do a search in the RC Groups forum - quite a few threads there.
I have two in the Nanuq, Seattle and Burnaby fellows have a variety as well.

Good luck with it

No other kits to speak of, but that doesn't mean other
 kits could not be modified to use the drives.

I bought the drives so that I could scratch build a tug, and
ended up building a fireboat instead.  :-)


The Gatiika VS tug is another build shown on RCgroups, and
the plans are readily available online.

The plans are hosted on a Spanish website.
