Thanks for sharing your build. There's a lot of valuable information there on model boat building techniques.

Thanks again

ok some more progress yesterday








starting to shape the flair in to the bow blocks this will take a will to get it wright ,im going to flair the wallworks out from  the deck to
the plan shows just leaving them plumb witch looks stupid on something with so much flair on the out side and it makes a big ugly cap rail round the prow


a tip for anyone  building this one use the bulwark template to double skin the inside of the bulwarks as there's only 2  frames to hold them up one at the for deck and one at the stern ( very weak) it all so gives the look of a capping  rail  ok2

My guess is the Receiver and a switch in that order.

The thing being pointed at is the RX, the blue thing is a servo.
You can mount a servo anywhere you like, in any attitude.  The servo doesn't care.  On the cenreline is only favoured because there is least weight balance problem, and the steering linkage setup is simplest to figure out.  As a rule, both the tiller arm and servo arm, at rudder centered and TX stick centred, should be at right angles to a line drawn through their respective pivots, and preferably on the same side.  This gives an equal response both sides.
Although the servo can be shoved round through 200+ degrees, when controlled by the radio, you get about 45 deg each side, the mechanical stop inside the servo is to prevent the servo destroying the position sensing pot.

Yes they do.  The servo will be the  tiller and the speed control will be the motor speed.

ESC

The ESC should have come with instructions - if the RX is part of a set, that should have instructions, too.
A look here -  http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6169.0  should help.
The TX should have clues near the sticks to indicate which stick belongs to which channel - the receiver probably also has its channels numbered.  The 3-way plug normally plugs in so that the black or brown wire is nearest the edge of the RX board.

You need a multi-meter with a setting of 10amp. Most of the cheap digital meters have that. Set the meter to the 10amp setting, which usually uses a separate socket for the positive lead.


Connect the positive lead of the meter to the battery positive and the the negative lead to the wire you've taken off the battery. In other words wire the meter in the circuit from battery to motor. It is not advisable to run like this for more than a few seconds if you are drawing more than 1 or 2 amps.
