Canal Transport springer-ish
« on: April 08, 2009, 10:04:12 PM »


Ok i confess it's not the recomended size but i had to make it , based on a canal transport pusher opperated by Hargreaves



this one has twin props , no rudders (at the moment) and has one of Daves P94 units in for motor and steerage ,at the moment it has only one 12v7ah battery in but has loads of space for more should the need for balast arise. Water trials hopefully this weekend .

thank-you , it had it's first wetting today (sat) only to find out that the motors are thirsty and the spare battery was flat.
So on my next visit i should have some photos and a performance check .
