P/m sent some of the really small motors are not strong  enough to turn radar scanners how much space do you have?  You  could  have a small geared motor in the roof of the cabin. See my p/m.

What up guys?
Wow, I really left this one a long time eh? Two years ago I got the kit, not doing very well am I? As a fellow boater at Barry said today, "take your time and get it right", I do fear two years is taking the biscuit though...  %)
Anyway, news! She was sailed on a lake! Today we went to Barry Island (or Barry land  %% , its not really an island) and sailed her for the first time on the lake there. Was good fun, despite the batteries running out very nearly in the middle of the lake. Managed to get her back to shore though. Here she is:

We also got some entertainment - whilst talking to one chap we heard a 'Somethings gone wrong!' from behind us, and we turned around to see a rather large cruiser coming towards the lake at full speed with its skipper not in control, once it had mounted the edge (bear in mind this is at full speed) and had been stopped, the cover was ripped off to find the ESC had caught fire, and obviously there could have been much worse consequences...luckily there was minimal damage to the vessel itself.  :-)
