Hi Dave

I think it's Mermod in Tasmania and not Jerry. They got mixed up in the meltdown ... Unless I have it wrong.

It's a British thing Mermod. Frequencies and all that.

oh I see, that issue has seen much lakeside debate over here, a lot of  "oh you shouldn't be on that frequency" and I agree air ch for air  land ch for land but after seeing what the Australian wholesalers import and get away with I gave up worrying, all I can say is thank goodness for 2.4 gig (except for my sub not sure whats gonna happen when FM is phased out)

Only takes one importer to get a caning to sort it.

  It'll free up more frequencies for the phone companies, far more lucarative (not a miss spelling) for the Governments.

   The one that Jerry shows could be 27moggies FM but it's not clear.

Hey Mermod
I'm feeling left out - no sign of a pm here {-)

Just a thought on sending hulls here .... could you nest them ... would it save anything?

Just saw this build thread; what a great model  :-)) . What scale does it work out to? How long is the hull?

I hope I'm excused for reviving an old thread but I have had to replace the drive batteries in the Sea Helper and thought someone might like to see how she's faired over the last two and a half years.
She has become the "go to" boat when nothing else is charged, broken or stuck in the middle, also she has been found perfect for pushing in the 26cc boats when they stall or flip and is also the boat I use when someone says you cant take a boat there :).
At our local spot there is a polypipe about an inch below the water and my favourite trick is to nudge her up to it and hit the turbo or dual rate switch and she will push herself up the side of the pipe and out of the water before landing on the other side with an awesome splash.
Anyway over the last few months the old Itellect batteries have been dropping off to the point where run times are only about 15 mins instead of the usual 1 hour so I have popped them out, popped in some new ones and took some pics for you all.



old and new batteries.
