Getting the camera out is no problem Roy. Figuring out how to work it is a problem.  :-[

Going to take lessons then I will post photos, hopefully. ???

Bluebird,
I have tried inboard and outboard props on several models, and on other peoples too.
The system works on models and full size vessels.
I can do the Naval Arch on the process, but it would just send most people to sleep.
Myself included.
It works is shown far better on twin screw, single rudder.
Just try it for yourself

hi there Bob - glad to see you back from your trip you have missed some fun  ;D

No I was not disagreeing with you, nor was I doubting your word.

Like yourself I have done some experiments on models and I have come up with similar results as yourself.   There are only 2 or 3 models which I know throw this rule to the wind - and that is an RAF crash tender 2564 which I built and it didnt matter if the props were turning inboard or outboard - it still takes an age to turn.  The only way I could think of to correct the distance it took to turn was either to increase the size of the rudders - because they are scale size or go for independent control of the motors.  The other one is a quadruple shaft with single rudder and this was an embarassment this one.   On inboard turning props, I could beat a straight running model -  with the rudders either port or starboard it just refused to turn - and this model has independent control of motors.

It wasnt until I changed the direction of rotation of props from inboard to outboard that I could get any degree of manouvreability.

Anyway, enjoy your leave Chief, nice to see you back on the Forum, unless you are out there on the horizon - working on your laptop - in that case you should be watching your ship  ;D ;D

Aye
