The trick is to read the supplied note

And to reread it

And to reread it

And to reread it

And to reread it

And to reread it

And to reread it



Until you understood

 Darn
This build is making me mad
I ask harbormodels to get me the motor
And please make surd I have everything to connect it to my aziz kit meaning
This motor will go to the aziz
They sent me a couplings
But it cant connect to the driveshaft
I need like an adapter to go over the thread of my driveshaft
So I can connect my motor
 <:(

Link you posted in reply #111, item Coupler insert only, use the drop down to select 4mm.

Oh, I see. I thought they were threaded 4mm (mine are), but reading the bit above it does look like they are all grub-screw types.
If HM supplied the kit/propshafts I'd get in touch and explain the problem - they may have a solution.

You could try getting Huco ones from someone else (I think mine are Huco, but not sure now) but it's possible they have a slightly different spline and might not fit. (But you could always order a complete Huco coupling with the right ends and put the HM set away for another project.)

You can get a M4 threaded insert from various UK sources - http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/couplings-modular.html is one - but the postage might be more than the cost of the little lump of brass  {:-{

I would have thought there would be a supplier in the US who sells these, but if they can't be found then at least you know you can get what you want at a price.

Good luck

Greg

I just recieved a pm from model slip way
I think they saw my predicament with my order
Since I posted all of my  build in here and the other forum
They offered to send me wbat I needed free of charge
Now thats what I call a company that really cares about their customers

Some guys that have build the aziz have problems
water getting in from the rudder post
So I came up with this idea




drill a pocket on that rudder niple
And seal it with a washer under the boat hull
Packed it with grease
that should seal the water

am I right?
What do you guys think?

Just pack the tube with a thick grease or something like copperslip.

A thick copper based grease used in outboard motors.
Non water soluble.

If the top of the tube is below the water line an "O" ring on the rudder stock and a slight pressure will reduce the volume of water but more importantly keep the grease within the rudder tube.

This aziz will sail on the beach so im kind of worried about  water getting in

Unless you have a cast iron plan to make the boat completely watertight, above the waterline as well as below, then as you are going to sail in the rough stuff I think you should make like the prototype and assume water will get in and provide means to get it out again. ie. bilge pump(s).

Do bear in mind that not a lot water will come through the rudder or prop tubes, even without grease. A cupfull every half-hour maybe? (Bath test to find out.) That wouldn't be a problem with this size of boat. However, as it's salt water you should make sure electronics and motors are above the level of the bilge, and possibly have some coating or spray on protection. Coatings would be a good idea anyway as it's obviously going to be a salty atmosphere even if the bilge stays dry.

Hi plague

The only way in for the water is

from the deck
And anything Penetrated through the hull
I have to make sure the decks are sealed
And the running gears
Im using jbweld for sure itll hold
And the super structures
Ill probably double wall it and in between  is a rubber
 That's my plan anyway hahah

But I have aonv way more to go
We will see

But double wall and rubber in between prevents water from getting inside :-))
as long as its not underwater itll hold out the water

But his clueless like me  :o

I was looking at the sodering iron at radio shack
They have different types of solders
I think the difference was the voltages?
What would be the appropriate solder?

I emailed action and they sent me

I just want to see it running for now
a simple esc for both motors and esc for bow thruster is good enough
